Dear Creative Girls,
There is something so special and wonderful about sharing a secret with a friend; a secret that revolves around love, joy and surprises, planned for people unawares! Do you know that feeling? You know… like planning a surprise party for someone you love, and they have NO idea all the details you’ve been planning and thinking and dancing to life for their DELIGHT. Well, I’ve had such a secret with a dear friend of mine, and the surpriseEEEE may be YOU.
And then there is the moment when the secret begins to reveal. Ahhhhhhhhhh! Well, we are now ready to tell you a little bit about. The creatiful nutshell of it all is that my beautiful friend–artist and activist Wendy Cook of Mighty Girl Art–and I are co-creating a retreat experience for YOU and your mother. (If you are a Mama of a Creative GIRL then it’s for YOU and your daughter.)
Many more details shall be revealed, but for now I will share that art, creativity, laughter and ancient trees are involved. Just you WAIT!!! I can’t tell you where just yet, but offer you the date… July 9th to 12th, 2015.
Oh, and our secret’s name? Mighty Creative Adventure…. but of course because that is what you get when you combine Mighty Girl with Creative Girl: MIGHTY CREATIVE! Be sure to join our email list if you want to know when registration opens. (Opt in over there … box on the right.) And visit and like the Creative GIRL facebook page.
I’m so blessed and grateful and excited to collaborate and co-create with Wendy: a woman whom I adore and feel so inspired by. We have countless joys and passions in common, most especially our commitment to the essence of YOU! I know you are going to ❤ Wendy, too.
How are you feeling? All goosebumpy and excited? Can you feel the magic coming? Oooooh, if you knew what I know, you wouldn’t be able to sleep tonight for the butterfly joy of it all 🙂 Mmmmmmmm … more secret sharing coming soon 🙂
ever creatifully yours,
Dear Creatifuls, This creative girl (yours truly) has been working hard to bring my first ever homeplay ecourse to our world. Want to join me? If so, you have to register by Sunday … begins on Monday. www.beckyjaine.com/joyfuel
Dear Creative GIRL,
Fall is nearly here. I can tell by the color the is sun casting upon the trees…. that mellow golden orangey yellow, different than the bright yellowy yellow of summer… the fluffy whiteness of the clouds … and that exquisite blue …. ooooooooooh!!!!! Fall is my FAVE 🙂
I’ve been daydreaming about our next CG playshop and have a few fall-fabulous fun ideas in the works.
If you played last Fall, you’ll remember we had tents outdoors and got to spend time together beneath the blue sky and white fluffy clouds. Yes, weather permitting, we will do this again!
Our FALL playshop will honor the beautiful expressive art form of POETRY. We will celebrate a few great poets, and apply our hearts and minds to the creative task of writing our own. We will make beaded dreamcatchers and a teeny special journal especially for thoughts and ideas you want to keep close to your heart. (We’ll make a few other creations too, but I like to have a few surprises.) ❤
Registration is now OPEN.
