Don't get me wrong. I'm a Pacific NW gal and love the rain and clouds - the coziness, the time for creative endeavors, good books, cups of tea. However it's supposed to be May! And even I am getting a bit tired of this relentless rain - week after week.
I have been introducing photography in the 3rd/4th and 5th/6th grade classes, and because of end-of-the-year activities, I had to combine classes last week... perfect for outdoor photography on the playground.
But rain wasn't on my agenda.
Just picture 52 8-10 year olds traipsing through the school hallways cameras in hand...
Followed on their heals with 50 11-12 year olds.
They had a ball...
I am still exhausted!
p.s. I'll see if my sons will share their photos with you some time...

Get your creative juices flowing and join us for a week, or a day, filled with beads, color, wine and food. See below for an overview of the classes to be held. For more detailed information, visit the Autumn Festival 2010 page on my website.
This is a very small, intimate retreat in my island cottage with class size between 6 and 10 students per day. We will be working in my sun room with tons of natural light, views of water, wetlands, numerous birds and sunrises. Each day includes a full day of instruction, lunch, wine hor 'doeuvres and dinner, interspersed with walks on the beach, a visit to the galleries at Greenbank Farm and plenty of colorful inspiration!
Registration is now open for those wishing to attend the entire week long retreat. (this is so that those wishing to attend the entire week are not closed out of a class in the middle!)
Registration will open at 12:00 noon (PST) on June 21st, 2010
for those wishing to attend individual classes, rather than the entire week.
I hope you can join us!

Today is Green Friday of Color Week, hosted by Curious Girl, Lisa.
Green is everywhere I look - from the lush carpet of spring outside to the piles of sea glass and beads that surround me. So hard to choose just a few photos!
