CREATE Retreat New Jersey 2014

Ok, where did the months go?  I am back and so excited after just returning home from the CREATE retreat in New Jersey. 

I am sharing some pictures from my class Explore Faces with Julie Fei-Fan Balzer. 

More to come another day, but we had fun and made some new friends. Maura in my first class and Penny in today's!  I sure enjoyed show-and-tell after the Vendor Faire!  Everyone was very nice and people were very positive. There was loads of sharing, of both ideas and supplies. 

I recommend it highly. One lessons learned is that being creative can be exhausting. Don't schedule too many classes. Those taking evening classes as well as daytime classes were very tired. Next year it would be great to plan an extra day at the end to relax and create together. 

I am tired, but inspired!


  1. Hi Julie, nice report on the retreat. Which portrait did you create?

  2. Looks like a lot of fun. I didn't even know we had a retreat like this so close to home!
