Creativity By the Sea...



I have been dying to spill the beans on this!! Oh my gosh!! Ok ok...I can't give all the info just yet, since we are still waiting for the site to launch. I'm pretty sure we'll be all up and running within the next two weeks! Eeek! So save those pennies and mark those calendars!! :)

Ok so here are some beans for ya! :

MARCH 23- 25 2012


Join us for a weekend that promises to provide boundless creativity and an unbelievable array
of workshops! Your experience at this new and exciting retreat will be enhanced by the location…Ocean Grove. This quaint,Victorian, seashore town will awaken your artistic senses while providing a relaxing atmosphere with the Atlantic Ocean at
your doorstep.

On Saturday and Sunday, a variety of workshops are scheduled, with talented
and experienced Instructors, who will provide the tools to shape you skills
into a rewarding finished project. Classroom settings will transport you to a
new level of creativity by expanding on previous experiences, exploring new
techniques and mediums and also bringing out your hidden talents.

On Friday evening, a Welcome Reception for all Instructors, attendees and Ocean Grove
participating business owners is scheduled from 7:00 – 9:00 pm. Saturday evening a Vendor Night is planned, where you and the public will be able to purchase products from instructors, artists, artisans and suppliers.

You will find a list of participating Inns, Bed and Breakfasts and Guest Houses. All are offering special rates for the weekend, and many include a delicious, homemade breakfast. Everything is within walking distance, as Ocean Grove occupies only one square mile. There are also many shops and restaurants located in our lovely, picturesque downtown area. Our location is easily accessible by public transportation with NJ Transit to Asbury Park or Academy Bus, directly to Ocean Grove.

If all of this peaks your interest and sparks your creative energy... mark your calendar for a weekend event in 2012 that will put an end to your
winter boredom!!


Ahhh!! I am just buzzing from excitement! Ocean Grove is pretty much our hometown. We grab coffee and scones and CUPCAKES there all time. I've blogged about Ocean Grove Bake Shoppe more than a few times! And if you are a long time reader you also know about the O.G. Flea! Which draws thousands!

This retreat is going to be so so fabulous! So unique and super fun! And being that it is our hood...we are totally down with adding a special antiquing/sight seeing day, for any of you gals willing to extend the party! :) Ohh and ummm...let me add that we are under an hour from NYC!! So things could really get F.U.N!!! :)

I really was bursting, and am so so glad I was able to give you guys a lil sneaky peek! :) Cannot wait to show you our classes!! Stay tuned!!

In other news...working on a Super Duper cute Christmas kit that totally brings back childhood memories! Think...Colorforms & Dollhouses! ahh!! :)

  5. Oh My Jenny I think my head is going to explode!!! I am so excited you really have no idea! I'm going to Ocean Grove tomorrow with my little girlies. My art is the Main Avenue Galleria and Ocean Grove is one of our favorite places ever. I'm never able to go to any art retreats because there always too far away and I don't want to leave my little mermaids for too long but this is perfect. I can't wait to hear every detail!xoxoxoxo
