Are you ready for the 2nd Annual Women’s CREATIVE RETREAT in Italy??

Well I know I am!  All the planning and preparation for this years event went into creating an INCREDIBLE WEEK that was a DREAM come true for me, and I know all of the ladies had a GREAT time in Italy too! We just got back from our 1st Creative Retreat in Italy and I can’t tell you how AMAZING it was to spend a week in the breathtaking Lake Como region of Italy with 20 ladies! We enjoyed creating new inspiring projects with wonderful teachers, we took in the unbelievable sites around Lake Como and we just relaxed in the BEAUTY of Italy!  

SO today I am excited to REVEAL that next years CREATIVE RETREAT in Bellagio, Italy will be held the week of June 22nd - 29th, 2013!

We will have another FUN-FILLED week of classes with some of the Top Artists in the industry, AMAZING excursions around Lake Como, RELAXING time by the pool or lakeshore and BREATHTAKING views of this beautiful region of Italy as we enjoy local foods and the annual San Giovanni Festival!
