Oh, dear friends, we have something SO REMARKABLE planned for our FIRST EVER “SISTERHOOD & ART” RETREAT here at Creative Wings Art Shoppe, that just typing this has me beaming with excitement!! I want you to know that it has been a long time dream of mine to offer a retreat in our shoppe – a whole day of art and inspiration and creativity and friendship. The idea just fills my soul with joy!
We have three wonderful ART projects planned, and a few other surprises that will surely make this day a rewarding and enriching experience for us all. Breakfast and Lunch are included in your Retreat fee, along with all supplies and materials for all of the art projects. AND . . . (drum roll) . . . an AWESOME “Happy Bag” of GIFTS from us (Creative Wings Art Shoppe) and local businesses. We’re talking – GIFTS (inspiring and awesome and delicious . . . yes, there maybe sweets inside, as well) with a retail value of $100!! (I am not kidding!)
Here is the timeframe and agenda for the day: A little more info on our plans for the day:
First, after a light breakfast of fruit and bagels (perhaps a sweet roll or two), we will start the retreat by making our very own “Sisterhood Crown!” Whether it is a mermaid crown, a creative crown, a “divine secrets of the Yaya sisterhood” crown . . . whatever your idea or wish is, we will have a variety of materials available for you (and by “variety” . . . I mean a HUGE amount!!) I will be making my crown within the next week and will share photos as soon as I am finished.
After our crowns, we will take a little bit of a break from the art to fill our bodies and minds with all things good. We’ll have lunch and a brief motivation chat, then be lead through Guided Meditiation and a wonderful Energy Clearing experience with our dear shoppe friend Amanda Clark Reed, owner of White Light Project (a wonderful Lockport business, too!) We are so grateful and blessed to have Amanda spend some time with us this afternoon – and I know you will feel such a sense of calmness and peace during this reflective time. It will be perfect to prepare us for the next project . . .
. . . which is, our second project. A deck of 25 Affirmation Cards. Our Affirmation cards will be made from heavy stock paper that we will decorate with positive thoughts, images, and art and can be used daily (or whenever you want) and help bring a little positivity to your life. Each attendee will receive a personalized kit for their cards . . . in addition to a wide variety of unique and creative materials to create the cards. Affirmation cards can pull you out of a funk, inspire and instill a sense of joy in your day. I truly believe you will LOVE this project.
Our third project is a really cool “Self-Love” block with a photo of each attendee (1/2 of your face, black & White only) surrounded by positive words. With a cool mixed media technique, we will end our day with this really awesome art of US to help us reflect on our experience and celebrate the amazing person that we are.
The price for the retreat is $175. *
The retreat price covers your breakfast and lunch, beverages (coffee, tea, juice, water) and snacks throughout the day, all art supplies and guided instructions for all three art projects discussed, a guided meditation and energy clearing experience, and a “Happy Bag” of awesome and inspiring gifts.
