celebrate!

< align="center"> celebrate!

I do have reason to celebrate! And I so want to share my excitement...... This mixed media artwork was accepted for a Tea Party Challenge for CPS and published in this edition Jan/Feb 09. I haven't received my copy yet, although I have been waiting ever so patiently for the mail to arrive. (Not going to be today with a public holiday!)

In the same edition of CPS, I have an article published..... 'Action is the art of Doing'. It's about using journal pages to move forward. Hope you get something out of the articile that makes a difference to your creative journey. And a great reminder to me to continue journalling and to listen to my own words.

One more reason to celebrate! I'm off to Creative Soul Retreat in Melbourne in March .I felt a compulsion to make the decision to go. And whilst I'm so excited to be going, I am not a seasoned traveller by any means and have never taken flight on my own.. only once been on a plane, and that was for a high school trip. I know it sounds a bit lame, but there you have it. Fear and excitement all rolled into one. I know this trip is worth it. Bernie Berlin, Stephanie Lee and DJ Pettitt. Just putting all those names together in a sentence, blows me away! And I can't wait to meet all the amazing artist who are attending. It will be a wonderful stretch for me on many levels.

Congratulations on your article, I received my CPS on Wednesday, it looks great, I thought I recognized your name. I look forward to catching up with you in March.

Oh, congratulations! I saw that piece, but hadn't looked in detail yet. I read my CPS several times, skimming for the articles that really speak to me first - like Action is the Art of Doing. :) After devouring those, I go through several more times before I feel like I've squeezed every bit of juicy art goodness from the pages and into my brain.

I'm going to go explore the Tea Party pages now!
