Earth Day was so much fun!

We are so very happy that 47 people came to our first big workshop event! It was more fun than I imagined it would be and the reason was that the day was filled with meeting lots of new friends and making so many great memories!

One of my favorite things with teaching workshops is when I see someone teaching others the new skill they just learned, and that happened so many times yesterday. 

It is also an amazing thing to see genuine inspiration in the process, and that kept happening yesterday too!

We welcomed a wonderful mix of all ages and it was delightful to see all the smiles and hear so many great stories about our new old home. 

There is something very special about this area that goes beyond the beautiful mountains, wonderful wildlife and nature everywhere, and that is the friendly and welcoming people of this special region. 

Morton and I really appreciate getting to meet and know new friends. It was so good to have him here for the event and hopefully everyone who came had as much fun as we did. 

It was also fantastic to have the event happen while we're hosting two women from France, Marthe & Roxane, who were such a help with every aspect. We're truly thankful. 

No one can predict the future, but my wish for it includes lots more new friends coming over, many wonderful arts and crafts being taught and created here and magical memories being made for all of us!

See you here!
