Na - Da Farm Event

I had such an amazing time at Na - Da Farm this past weekend.  This was the first time I have ever took an overnight road trip by myself and it was a lot of fun.  Catching up with an awesome Dean Koontz book, eating peanut M & M's, and watching Ghost Adventures without the hubby's skeptic comments, who could ask for more!  I also met some really cool ladies and I finally got to meet the ever most sophisticated Alison from The Polo House .  I registered for three classes during my time at the farm.  Friday night was the first class.  It was called Avenues to an Artful Business, hosted by two amazing and creative women, Jeanne Oliver and Jennifer Rizzo.  The class was very inspiring and they both offered great tips on how to start your own etsy store, web business, and blog.  Saturday was my creative day.  The two classes I took were Vintage Art Journal and Mixed Media Art, both taught by Jeanne Oliver.  Both classes were absolutely wonderful!  Thank you so much for your encouragement and kind words Jeanne!

Hi Kelly,

I know you had a great time learning and exploring with your art. I love trying new things but I'm hopelessly hooked on my crochet and hand sewing and my photography..much to learn with that. :0)

Thank you so very much for visiting with me. Drop by anytime and I'll do the same.

I'm now following you too. ♥

Wishing you a week filled with Pink Sparkles,
Stephanie ♥
