Thanks, everyone!

What a fabulous weekend! So much fun visiting with old friends, making new friends, laughing and giggling at our silliness, and making a lot of art.

Thanks to EVERYONE who contributed their own special creative energy to the mix.

And due to popular demand, we will have a SeARTle art retreat 2015.

Details to be released soon!

But first I need a few days to rest up. :D

Happy Monday!

It's almost time!

In just a few days we will be at SeARTle! Yay! We're so excited!  

We’re gathering at Best Western Airport Executel, 20717 International Blvd, SeattleWA 98198. 

Julie, Beth and I are looking forward to having a fun weekend with you all!  If you need anything while you’re there, you can text or call me (Helen) at area 360 prefix 927 number 2074.

Beth has compiled a list of close-by “attractions” (Thank you, Beth!). We've set up a separate page with the details, and will have copies available at the hotel for you.

Also, we have access to a shuttle that will take us FREE to Southcenter Mall. 
Seattle Express  They run from 11:00am to 6pm daily and we just call to reserve a spot. Check their website for more details.

Time we start:
We are able to get into the room earlier on Friday, so our “OFFICIAL” start time has adjusted to 9:00 AM.  Art room will remain open until 12:00 noon on Sunday.
*A reminder that hotel guests receive a complimentary breakfast daily, served from 5:00 - 9:30 a.m.

What to bring with you:

1) Whatever art supplies you wish to play with over the weekend.

2) Snacks for yourself and possibly to share. NOTE: We will provide water, coffee and tea along with some snacks (i.e. cheese, crackers, fruit, veggie tray, chocolate). We cannot accommodate food allergies or special diets, so if you need to, please bring what you are able to eat.

3) Any goodies you want to bring for the “free table”. Examples are used postage stamps, vintage book pages, art papers no longer in use, supplies you bought and are not going to use and that are in good condition.
*Please note that we do not have a way to take care of what you leave behind, so be prepared to remove any of your remaining items to take with you when you leave.*

NOTICE: We respectfully ask that you do not wear cologne or strong scents while at the retreat, so our fellow artists with allergies will be comfortable.  Thank you!

See you all very soon!

Beth, Julie and Helen
