pLAyDaTEs Are Not Just For Kids

I think playdates are important. One day last week I went to Laguna Beach to spend the day playing with my friend Paulette. We brainstormed ideas for art, classes and retreats. Revisit my post "Two Brave Souls"to meet her. I can't even begin to describe her home. This historical seaside cottage is just blocks away from the charming village of Laguna. Paulette's talents as an interior designer are very apparent as you walk through this delightful home but it's her gift as an artist that just makes my jaw drop. The cottage is like a candy shop. You don't know if you want to look at the pink candy or the green candy. You don't know if you want to taste cherry, lemon or lime. There are so many flavors you just simply don't know which way to turn. One thing is for certain. you are filled with inspiration and you want to go back for seconds and thirds. As we sat at the studio table, I created my paperdoll banners and had this most beautiful view of the Pacific. Even better was all of the delectable ceramic pieces she has created. You can see some of them in the background. We talked of art, crafts, workshops, and the inspiration that comes between brave souls who come together in the name of art.
I am pleased to announce that we will be hosting an all day playdate in September. Put the 26th on your calenders...more details to follow later in the week.
I can tell you there will be wonderful food, wonderful workshops and of course the most wonderful party favors in a most wonderful place where only creative brave souls dare to meet! Stay tuned...playdates are important!
