For over 10 years I've been lucky enough to attend retreats and meet so many amazing artists,share their creative space,enjoy their stories and connect to special people.Now forever, in my experience, that have been strictly a female dominated domain.
That's when I had the pleasure of meeting Jason.
Yay,a scrapper,who is male :) and who came to Mojo, to get arty and have fun and ,
well, I'm sure was enlightened along the way .....
I created this piece of scrappy goodness above, using a photo taken for this layout .
Thanks Kylie for snapping this shot
this piece above is for Kim to add photos for a tribute album to a little angel in heaven
I am sitting here waiting for the uber talented Jo Kinder,
to pick me up, for the road trip down south to Picton, to attend the yearly Delights Retreat.
And I realized,as I sit here,that I haven't even blogged about Camp Mojo
or the Tamworth Retreat I attended last month , whoops -bad blogger !!
So first things first ,lets check out some pix from Camp Mojo
another crazy year of arty fun in the Hunter Valley....
but for me the special times came when I finally got to meet her :)
online friends for years and years ,
and finally time to watch her create,listen to her speak,
,connect to her creative spirit, and spend time laughing,crying then laughing again,
oh and sharing my womanly energy(table sistas unite),
well lets just say ,my creative energy was at peace in her presence.
so for me , this year wasn't really about pumping out lots of arty stuff,
(although I did do a large heart canvas for this beautiful one above,a random piece in my art journal, a layout for Jason, a double for Kim, and Naomi's awesome class pieces)
it was about connecting to my fellow campers and getting a little wild...
(joining in on the punk themed flash mob #soundingdifficultiessuck)
Mojo each year features an option of a dress up night , and this years theme was 70's .
