if i close my eyes tight enought i'm still there...


Coronado was way more than I expected.
I really had no idea how beautiful it actually would be...
The Glorietta Bay Inn was gorgeous.
The flowers vibrant.

If you add those factors along with a wonderful group of super enthusiastic students,
you know each class was a huge success!
 Marbi, =), Barb, Anne, Kim
There was so much to see, so much beauty everywhere I looked.
Not to mention some gorgeous jewelry made by some wonderful ladies...
Crystal Confetti Necklaces
Window to my Heart Cuffs
and
Heart Strings

Art Retreat by the Beach will again be in Coronado in 2013, 
but in May instead of June!
I hope you can join us....it truly is one of the BEST places in the world to take a class.
More details are coming soon....

Oh what fun!!! I see "Big Daddy" enjoyed the sand & surf! Coronado is AMAZING! I love it there. I love all of the California Coast... I see two sweet friends that took your class. Jan & Anne! Such fun ladies. I'm so sorry I missed seeing you in Concan... Bathroom is finished except getting plantation shudder... Farm sold/stuff moved (maybe one more trip). Next... new carpet in living room & den (which it's a good thing that is next as Dear Daddy Darling spilled a LARGE glass of RED wine on the wall, wood blinds & carpet tonight!!!!!!!!!!!!) OH MY!!!

Diane, what a great post! Oh the pictures are all so incredible...and so are the jewelry pieces! Your students are all smiles and boy did they ever create stunning jewelry - they must all be so proud of their work. What an incredible venue - who wouldn't have a blast there?? My brother was stationed in San Diego a long time ago and I do remember that hotel - everything is so scenic! And I loved the picture of Allen at the end!

Looks like the art retreat was a lot of fun! I spent many summers at Southern California beaches...so many great memories & found treasures from the sea.
