July 10, 2018: Finley Claire takes center stage! Happy 1st Birthday, Finley!
It's been a full, very Blessed year of being a grandmother, Nessi, to our sweet granddaughter. Trips to Denver to keep Finn have been a rhythm I could not have imagined. I'm so in LOVE! I have a wonderful daughter in law and son who allow me to spend as much time as I can with her. I suppose I need to add a page to this site: Life Loving Experiences all about being Nessi!
Personal creative endeavors slowed down, but NessDoor has flourished with lots of meetings, prayer, and day retreats: Unmasking- Living as the One and Only YOU; Advent Quiet Day- A Soul Day just for you; Epiphany- Follow Your Star, See the Wonder; Lent- Rhythm, God's Beat for you; Approaching Ascension- Forgiveness.

Now that I'm about to embark on another Cody Center art offering at Laity Lodge, Dale Bruner, July 18-21, I'm preparing to spending time with people in the studios for two afternoons. While I always leave the door open for any creative expression, my focus will be on Painting with Paper. Other options will be PwP on cedar cuts, wood burning, and limited jewelry/Anglican Prayer Beads. The Cody Center has it ALL!
Last June 2018 I had a grand time at the Studios at Laity Lodge during the Earl Palmer retreat. Aside from just the wonder of the teaching, the people gathered there made the afternoon art offering truly rich. Here are some of the creative expressions from that time:
