I’m super excited to announce we will have a ღ Creative GIRL ღ playshop for girls ages 9 to 14 during the last week of track out, Monday October 5th through Wednesday October 7th from 10 am to 2 pm in Northeast Raleigh. We’ll gather to play with clay, experiment with bookmaking, make jewelry, paint AND generate a fun and thoughtful kindness campaign. For more information and to register visit this linky.
Suggested registration is $125 per girl. There is also a creative pay-what-you-can scholarship option that will not alienate girls due to financial constraints.
Creative GIRL was created in 2013 to provide a safe and unique experience for girls to gather outside of family and school to share and listen, to honor creativity, self and otherly kindness, expression and empowerment. Creative GIRL playshops hold talking circles and explore multiple expressive art forms like journaling and painting, and promote kindness in action. www.creativegirl.net or email Becky at firstname.lastname@example.org.
It would be my great blessing to celebrate your daughter at our next program.
I’m very excited about this special week coming. (Bzzzzzzz….Hummingbirds in my tummy.) Our first ever, Mighty Creative Adventure™ will bring mothers and daughters together–new friends from far and wide–to share a new experience, co-create memories for four days and three nights at our enchanted forest in the North Carolina mountains. We will learn new things, make a few things, share old stories, enjoy some s’mores over our campfires, while activating the great beauty, power and creativity within us. How does this sound?
We still have space for you and your mother (daughters ages 8 to 14 and mothers of all ages) to gather together to learn from each other, share, shine and LAUGH together as we adventure in a secret sanctuary located in the heart of the Pisgah National Forest, North Carolina–one of the oldest woodlands in America.
It is not too late to say “Us too!” Much more info can be found at http://www.mightycreativeadventure.com or feel free to email me. We have one partial scholarship remaining, and a lodge room or shelter space for you. Oh, and yes, if you are flying we have a shuttle service to safely transport you from Asheville (AVL) airport to our secret gathering place.
What do you think? How does this sound? Can you join us? Me, my daughters, my dear friend and partner in creativity Wendy Cook, and the other moms and girls this Thursday? Let me know. We’d love to welcome you to the Mighty Creative Adventure.
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 🙂
