I’m going to level with you. I’ve been in a quandary. A real quandary.
The Creative Cottage is five years old this month! WoooooHooooooo!
Five years ago I dared dream I could create a magical place for women to come play, make art and share stories.
I had no business plan–no capital–no investors–no experience–
but I had a big juicy vision and a huge beautiful dream
and I went for it!
And you helped make it fly.
You came to my classes and celebrated at my potlucks and we became such good friends!
I have felt so completely blessed by The Creative Cottage and the tribe of magical women who have made it their second home!
You have enriched my life with your friendship, enthusiasm, and loving support of the Creative Cottage and the Girlz With HeART.
It has been an amazing rollercoaster of mostly pure joy…
but, frankly, I’m wearing out…falling apart…losing momentum.

I’ll be 70 this year.
My chronic, acute Lyme Disease is taking a toll.
Rent & art supplies are going up.
My Sweetheart is officially retired now and wants a side kick for day trips and adventures.
I have a million other dreams urgent to fly.
The needs of the Girlz I mentor are endless and heart challenging.
There are two dozen art projects–including a new collection of poetry–languishing
because I just can’t seem to make enough time in my life for them.
I need your help.
Please give me a little grace period.
I need a one week monthly sabbatical.
One week off from The Cottage every month
(starting in March)
to do my own thing, refill my own tanks, and make my own art.
Here’s my plan.
You’ll step up and offer to teach something you know or are passionate about at The Cottage.
(Remember: Part of my mission has been to empower YOU to share your creativity!)
You’ll design a class, a workshop, a gathering suitable for sharing at The Cottage
to help me out…you’ll make sure you show up & pay for classes you signed up for…
AND you’ll continue to share your overflow of art supplies, paper towels, and JOY
My old, beat-up, prickly heart is so full of love for you…
please help me keep going!
Much Love From Kaitlin
Mistress of Muddle, Magic, and MERRIMENT!
