soul stew part two
Oh, what can I say that these pictures can't? After what seemed like an untoppable art retreat two autumns ago, Rachel graciously invited us all back last weekend to her cabin in northern Minnesota. We were a cozy group of six -- a bit quieter this time, but still quite enough to cause a substantial creative ruckus.
We woke each morning to a stunning sunrise over Lake Superior; collected stones from the beach and adorned them; devoured the prototype of Rachel's book (coming out in November!); painted wooden bangles and spoons; made aebleskivers (puffy Danish doughnuts); walked, talked, ate, used colorful words, doodled tattoos, begged Lori to sell the bracelets she painted...
I also bought my very own aebleskiver pan and was rather impressed with myself for getting that cast iron sucker through security. I might even use it once! Also scored a parenting fail with the Ole and Lena fortune cookies I took back for my kids, which we found had horribly inappropriate jokes on the inside ;)
Eventually there will be a stew book for this retreat just like I did for the last one -- I just hope it doesn't take me ten months to cook it this time!
Don't mind saying that I'm a little bit yearny looking over all of these pictures. Thank you Rachel and the rest of the stew girls Lori, Jen, Carissa and Liv for a wonderful, unforgettable weekend!
