dance in the daisies
happy may! hope you all had a fun, relaxing weekend. after all that talk of hard work it was time to dilly dally for a bit. and dilly dally i did, with some phenomenal creative gals i've wanted to meet for a long time! over breakfast on saturday morning i finally met the delightful nina along with a few mutual friends here in town, and she is as adorable and warm as her children's illustrations! then i headed for the plaza in kansas city, where i met the fabulous terri and her just-as-fabulous pals deb and julie, who are just as funny and whip-smart as she is! we had no issue whatsoever polishing off a bottle of wine getting to know each other. nina's and terri's visits were entirely unrelated - just lucky for me that they both landed in kansas on the same day! amazing day, amazing girls! thank you for the soul food!
a couple of creative prods to pass along...
> the may prompt for creative every day is intuition - join leah and the rest of us if you'd like to share your creative interpretations of the word!
> check out the buffet of may art experiments at daisy yellow!

> weekword is back in action! rachel is the wordfinder this week and it is "story" - just leave a comment on her blog if you'd like to participate, and then on friday, post your photo, drawing, journal page, whatever creation you feel moved to do by that word!
happy creative monday to you! now off to get some coffee - i've run out of exclamation points.
