It's a wrap!

We returned home from our 7th Tesoro del Corazon retreat in San Miguel de Allende a few weeks ago.  It is so inspiring to be in San Miguel during Dia de los Muertos. The altars, adorned with marigolds and sugar skulls, sprung up around the square in the early morning hours of November 1st It was magical to see the transformation around the Jardin.
Once again we had a great group of gals (and a guy!) with us.....everyone was so warm and friendly which really made our time in Mexico so very special.
The La Narradora (storyteller) artwork that was created was simply amazing. As the artwork arrived for our student showcase on the last evening I think we all felt a sense of pride and accomplishment at what was created in four days. (and a few late nights!)
 It was very moving to hear all of the stories behind the Storytellers.....

And of course, we can not forget Greg and Carman!!!!

 Finally, MANY, MANY thanks to this year's incredible guest artist, Karen O'Brien. I think we can all agree that her class may have been the "scariest".....but wow, did she get everyone painting incredible faces for their projects. She is an awesome instructor and we were lucky and happy she joined us this year. (and Yes, that is one BIG margarita....well deserved!)

Thanks to all who joined us this year......we so appreciate you entrusting us on this journey.....here's to the lasting friendships and great memories that were made..... xoxoxo
