Collage Camp and a Give Away

I have great and exciting news for all you who are interested in mixed media. 
KC Willis is hosting a CO Collage Conference with Jenny Doh. 

Colorado Collage Conference Five Art and Info packed days that could change your creative life forever. Join KC in her beautiful (and big) studio and gallery for workshops on art instruction (mixed media collage...of course), marketing classes and inspirational presentations.
Join KC and Jenny for lunch and dinner on select days. Food and fun times. The small number that the conference is being limited to will allow some one-on-one time with each other. KC and Jenny will be available to answer your personal questions and encourage your directly. I don't know about you...but I like that!



Be sure and check out KC's blog for more info on this amazing conference. It will be so much fun, I have been to KC's conferences and she truly has a heart for teaching and a genuine love for people. Her ability to tell a story is not only humorous but captivating. She is offering this in the winter and a spring - if you want inspiration and a connection to other artists and just plain fun, you won't want to miss this one.
I also have an event coming up with KC that I will tell you about next week. It is an exciting project that has been on my heart this past year. 

I know I have been missing from the blogging world here lately and I promise I will be back blogging more regularly soon. I will be going on vacation for a week on Friday. We are  traveling with my lovely mother to her home state South Dakota and visiting some relatives and also taking in the Black Hills. I am looking forward to this, I haven't been there since my grandparents passed. Speaking of mom... today she is 85 years young, 
Happy Birthday Mother, I love you!



I also am having a Give-Back this post! I hit 500 followers a while ago and I would like to show my appreciation of your generous words of encouragement and just hanging in there with me lately!!!
Since most of us love jewelry, I thought a necklace would be fun to give away.... so with that in mind - just leave a comment! If you want to grab the button that would be wonderful but not necessary to enter.





This Give-Back will last until I get back from vacation, 
Oct. 24.
Have a great week and stay tuned for more exciting adventures of what the Lord is opening up for me lately. I will post before I leave on Friday!
Many Blessings
Rebecca


I am adding this to my post today as I just found out that a very dear and sweet lady just went to be with the Lord. 
Annie had a business for years called Market to Market, which I enjoyed tremendously, she was a talented and sweet lady that always greeted you with a smile. She most recently was working on Stone Meadows Farm shows and her blog 
Drawing-a-Blank
Sadly to say I did not know she was struggling here lately , the last time we talked she was doing well with her chemo treatments. 
She was marveling at the goodness of the Lord and how He was revealing Himself  in her life. 
I just want to say good bye sweet Annie and praise God for the victory over death.




Resting in the arms of Jesus...
