Ice Cream Recovery

Sunrise over Danbury
 Friends, it is not as hard to finish a pint of Hagan Daaz Dulce de Leche as I thought it would be. I paced myself and over a period of about 2 hours managed to slide every drop of that frosty silk down me gullet. Did I have an excuse for this bit of piggery? Yes, my throat is sore probably from talking for 5 straight days. I am unbearably sick of hearing my own voice!

Hard at Play

Journal Spilling Layers
Art Is You was worth every syllable and resulting calorie. It was so much fun. I made so many good friends, met such talented, generous people. I loved every minute. I think that the heart of an event such as this is what determines the atmosphere. Ellen and Salliane are a warm, smart, generous and talented heart and everything ripples out from there.

This retreat was so much more than the sum of its parts.

Hee hee! Unfortunately I know all too well how easy it is to polish off a pint of ice cream... chips or chunks don't even slow me down! Ha!

I'm glad you had such a wonderful workshop :)

Ice Cream is a great "healer" for any Recovery!!! I love Rum Raisin and there is one with coconut and pineapple chunks that is very islandish. . . Love your blog . . . Love your Website . . . Love your toturals . . . .You Rock My Dear . . . . .

Gorgeous sunrise!
Welcome home.

Diana- it was so great seeing you at ARt-is.....even though I didn't recognize you at first! I must confess I was bragging over the fact that you are only 30 minutes from me and that I got to take a class at your home studio. Maybe I just wanted everyone to be green with envy since the theme was 'Wicked'!

Well I don't envy you the ice-cream (can't stand it!) but absolutely drooled over those journal pages. Amazing.

Oh yes, the journal pages! I was a bit envious ... as I did was demo. and, as usual, learned much from my brilliant students. Excellent group as always.
Am now back to watching my sugar intake. Rum raisin! Haven't had that in years.
