A Case of Curiosities in Taos, New Mexico


A few days ago I returned from an amazing retreat that I taught with Seth Apter from The Altered Page.


I'm still basking in the glow of Taos and the Mabel Dodge Luhan House where our retreat was held.


From the first moment we arrived there was magic. We all noticed it, Seth and I, our students, and even the staff. They said that we brought an alchemy to the house. We were enchanted.


I loved teaching with Seth. We broke up our teaching days by one of us teaching in the morning, and one in the afternoon. This worked beautifully. We had both created brand new projects just for this workshop, and all of them would fit into our "cases of curiosities." 



My heart is full of images of the beautiful creations our students made with us. Each unique, each magical just like they were.


We took many field trips!

Our favorite's were to to see Annie Coe who is one of my featured artists in Storytelling with Collage.


And to visit Leighanna Light's and Thomas Ashman's studio!


It was so exciting for all of us to meet these amazing artists in person!


A special thanks to Bonnie for working with us to make this workshop happen, and to all the staff at Mabel's for taking such beautiful care of us! We can't wait until next year!


I am also very excited share that I have a post featured on the Cloth Paper Scissors Website, where I share more thoughts about this workshop, My New Book and my Live Webinar on March 31st!!!
