Helloooo?? Are you out there???

I had a bit of a winge to the girls at the class today. They said they had read about the retreat on the blog and I asked why they hadn't left a comment.
I know people are visiting, but you are not leaving comments.
I would love to chat to all of you from around Australia and the world and to visit all of your blogs, but I don't know who you are!!!!!!!!!!!!
If you drop by, say hi!

Okay, on to matters at hand. Work on the retreat is coming along nicely and we are really excited as to next years line up of teachers and classes. You are all going to love it so much.
We are also planning evening activities, as the Academy is quite far away from anything, we wanted to plan some fun arty things for you all. Any suggestions?
The website should be all completed by next week with registrations opening very soon after. You will be very pleased with the pricing structure!
I wish to thank each and every one of you who has offered support and encouragement to us over the past few years, you are all the most amazing people!
And to all you girls reading this from other countries, come along and join us at the retreat! What a fantastic opportunity it would be for you to visit another country and have the chance to learn from some of Australia and Americas top artists! You will love Sydney, I promise you!!

Well, dinner is almost ready and I am still recovering from the whirlwind adventure to Sydney. Slept like a log last night, but still feel tired today. Those red eye flights can really take it out of you!

Have a great night and please, leave a comment and say hi!

I'm here, I'm also in Perth.

I am an art journaller, and healing doll maker and a midwife.

I don't think I can come to the retreat because I have a midwive's conference on at the same time in Queensland. Sigh, something's gotta give.

I am subscribed to you through bloglines and I post about midwifery and my dolls, crafts and other stuff at

If you search for craft on my blog you'll find some of my recent projects.

Yours in art

Hi Jo - what a great line up for next year's retreat. You are going to have such a great time.

Thanks for the great clip art sheet - I especially love the owls, the eggs in the nest and the feathers. So kind of you to share.

Good luck with the retreat. How I wish I could say that I'll be joining you but I'll have to wait and see what my new baby is like.

Yes, I'm here too & and awaiting further news about the retreat...I'm just one of those quiet,self-conscious types...lots of enthusiasm ,but not much skill/talent?? So I keep my head down.
Great tutors lined up...I have so loved looking at Judy blog for months now....she is such a deep & thoughtful artist.
