Art and SouL...Sort of

A year ago I took my very first art class with dear sweet Judy Wise.  I remember being terrified sailing into uncharted territory all by myself.  It turned out to be one of the best things I've ever done for myself.   This year the funds weren't available to take classes but I was still able to visit on vendor night to see a very special friend who was there from Seattle.  It was a thrill to bump into my friend Judy and these lovely ladies too!  So much talent, inspiration, and kindness glowing from these women.

Judy Hugs are the BEST♥

This is my beautiful talented friend Melinda.  We shared a meal with one of her art and soul classmates named Tina Colada.  Is that a cute name or what. :)  Lots of fun!  Melinda is new to the blogging world so please visit her and make her feel welcome!  You can find her HERE
Love to you,
