How exciting! It’s that time of year again. Packets for the Hampton, Virginia Art & Soul retreat have gone out and many of you will be receiving a little surprise inside! But shhhhh… don’t tell anyone what it is, let’s keep it a secret from the Portland attendees!

Me and my trusty helper (my, how she’s grown!) had tons of fun preparing all your goodies for the Virginia retreat!

For those of you who’ll be getting the “alterable item” — have fun with it! This year’s theme is Into The Garden and that can dictate the direction you go with your creativity — or maybe you want to think outside the garden! Whatever you create, I know it will be spectacular. You are all so very creative. We love seeing the end results! And those results won’t be wasted, because we have some fabulous prizes this year. Read on..

For our contest, we’re going to have 4 categories:
• Most Original Design
• Most Hilarious
• Most Fitting of Theme, and
• Most Likely to Be Worn While Gardening

And… the winner of each category will receive a FREE one-day class for  Portland 2011 or Hampton 2012! So get into the garden, and get your hands dirty! Can’t wait to see what you come up with!


We can’t wait for Portland and want to include everyone in on the excitement, so we’ve organized our first giveaway. We’re giving away…drum roll please…a deck of Art & Soul cards featuring some of our favorite artists. This is a gorgeous deck, would make a great gift and will bring art to any card game. Fun! We like a little bit of friendly competition, so we have a question for you. We’ll take all the correct answers, put them in a hat and draw one lucky winner. You can respond here by making a comment, post on our facebook page or tweet the answer, too. Deadline for submitting your post, comment or tweet is on Sept. 28th. Hurrrry. Or is that hooray? Good luck. 

Question: What year was the first A&S retreat held in Virginia?
