Create with K8


I have recently discovered that I love creative retreats.  I love participating in art activities, doing photography, and being surrounded by other creative souls. 

But one thing I always find myself saying when I’m at these retreats is, “I wish the women back home were here"...or "so and so would love this"...or "why don’t I do this more often?” 

So my plan for 2011 is to bring the retreat to me – and the local ladies.  One Sunday per month, I will invite women to gather at my place for an afternoon of creation.  It’s meant to be a no pressure, no experience necessary, organic & of course fun experience!

Well, I’m happy to announce that the first “Create with K8” date was a smashing success!  Got an opportunity to hang out with some awesome chicks & set some intentions for 2011 at the same time.  Creating Vision Boards was our activity for January.  Can’t wait to see what the rest of the year will bring!

  1. how fun Kate. I often feel the same way. Like I need to find my community inside my community. I've been so fortunate to meet so many lovely gals all over the states and Canada (wink wink), but don't have local gals who I have connected with on this same artsy, creATive, digging deep kind of way. Maybe I should take your suggestions and invite them in. I like it!

  2. LOVE this! That is actually why I started having my own retreats, because I wanted to start a sort of local "tribe". It's been great and I'm hoping I can keep it going. We have gotten together a few times away from the retreat setting. Soo cool that you are doing this!!!
