Special Announcement: Mixed Media Madness

Two of my active "Inspire! New England Paper Crafts" Cre8time teammates have worked up an INCREDIBLE independent project that I'm thrilled to be able to share with you today.

Catherine Scanlon, of Catherine Scanlon Designs, and Kim Parkinson, of Kept Creations, have collaborated on working up an inspiring weekend art retreat.

Mixed Media Madness is being hosted Friday night, March 21st through Sunday, March 23, 2014 at the historic John Carver Inn and Spa in Plymouth, Massachusetts.

The latest information from Kim Parkinson sounds AMAZING:

"Get ready for a total immersion in art, techniques and classes!  Two fabulous artsy classes with published artist Catherine Scanlon, one assemblage class with Mandy Fariello and a fantastically messy class with Kathie DeLuca!  

Each attendee will get their own space in the community room to be able to take advantage of precious "creative alone time" that is perfect for:

  • working in your art journals, 
  • finish up some projects you might have or 
  • work up {new} project by taking advantage of inspiration garnered from other creatives joining you at the event.  

We'll have raffles, goodie bags, trunk show, food, fun and art!  What more could you want from a mixed media weekend?"

I've just learned that Mixed Media Madness has extended their registrations. 

Kim said, "If you've been waiting for those taxes to come in, this is the time. Sign ups have been extended to March 15th or until we are sold out. Call or click on link to sign up today."
