Today, I guest blogged over at Mo Joy. Below you’ll find my recap of the art retreat weekend. I’ll be sharing each of the 12 projects we made in the coming weeks here at Homegrown Joy.
Today it’s Riley guest blogging here. I’ll be sharing my daily dozen projects at my blog, Homegrown Joy
, for the next few weeks if you want to follow along. I had a little bit of some technical difficulties uploading this blog post. I’m opening up the guest blogging by giving a quick overview of the weekend. After that, we’ll have individual posts on each daily dozen areas from Make Today Count.
I attended Mo’s first retreat a year ago and absolutely LOVED it. I knew I would jump at the chance to go to another one. After bugging Mo about 15 times, she finally caved and asked me to pick a date. As you know from the weekend blog posts and plenty of instragramed pictures, this retreat took a different spin from her previous MoZart Retreats.
This 4 day retreat added a second full day of art (compared to the 3 day retreats) and each project had meaning attached to it.
The results of this design allowed for personal reflection and development while making awesome art.
Each project started with a powerpoint and discussion about one of the daily dozen areas. Then we moved on to our art project. We learned all sorts of new techniques and were encouraged to let our creativity flow.
Mo basically said here is the project, here are a few options for how to do, and you can choose what you want to do. This open door invitation to use the oodles of supplies she has allowed for limitless possibilities.
The agenda maximized our time to create. Everyone left the weekend with armfuls of art creations.
The weekend was much like previous retreats in that we had awesome food, wonderful women and visiting, and an inspiring environment to work in. The retreat was the perfect escape from reality and set me up for success when I returned from the weekend.
I certainly will attend another retreat in the future. MoZart Retreats are just too irresistible to pass up.
Get ready for many more details and stories from each of the daily dozen guest bloggers in the coming weeks!
