Summer to Autumn - away

It is time again for me to leave this studio of mine and venture out into the vast world. I will be traveling to Phoenix to teach two wonderful workshops, one on Friday and the second on Sunday.

On Saturday, I will be offering a table full of delightful treasures to purchase. All of these terrific happenings are taking place at the incredible Art Unraveled Retreat. If you are in the area, I invite you to come join in the fun!

I always feel both happy and sad before I leave on a trip. Happy and giddy with excitement because I will be going, doing, having such lovely experiences, sharing with friends old and new, and spending time reveling in the artistic endeavors I cherish so.

Sad because I miss home. Yes.. even though I am well into my adulthood, I feel an aching in my heart for home when I am away from this familiar place with its sweet smell of coffee scented candles burning, peach apricot tea steeping in my favorite mug, soft sheets on a comfy bed, my beloved pets, and my darling husband.

I will even miss Mr. Toad.

So to keep you company while I am abroad, I leave you with a most charming bit of art from my Season's Journal, inspired by my Summer house guest.

I know what you mean Traci about missing home. My husband & I enjoy traveling but we love being back home with our simple little pleasures even more. May you have a wonderful & inspiring time!:)

Hi Tracie, sorry I didn't get to talk to you for very long yesterday at AU. You were a little busy with shoppers. I see that you are going to the ZNe convenzione, are you going to be at the vendor fair on sunday the 24th? I will be there, just curious if you will be??? Tricia
