Raven Hearts Fly!

We had such a great day yesterday making a fabulous group of magical ravens!

Ravens are proud, smart, sassy, curious birds (does that sound like the women who come to The Cottage, or what!?) and it was great fun to see how each woman created her very own unigue Raven Heart. It was a beautiful, almost Spring day and we left the Cottage door open so we could hear the birds singing and feel the cool breeze. While we played and sewed, we had a wonderful chance to catch-up with each other’s lives…half the fun of sharing these classes is how much we love and support each other through life’s ups and downs! Dolores has an adorable new doggie named Zoey, Lucy pulled off an awesome birthday party for her 6 year old son (no easy feat!), Mary  shared her always sage advice, and Theresa took a great class from amazing artist Jill Berry (see a picture of her work at: http://jillberrydesign.com/ ) through our fantastic local group PaperWorks–The Sonoran Collective For Paper and Book Artists (check it out at: www.paperworks.info/) We’re ALL enthusiastic members and look forward to our monthly meetings which always feature a great artist sharing insight about their creative process! We rock!

Maven the Raven
Setting out one fine day,
Gathering treasures along her way,
She swooped over to Kaitlin’s Haven
Where she shared some love
With her sisters-in-raven.
