I just returned from a week in North Carolina, teaching at the wonderful, Random Arts, in Saluda. This is my third year teaching there, and we've got plans for me to return next summer.

  1. Gelliprints are fabulous. I wish you lived in Holland so I could come to your classes

  2. OK - North Carolina is the closest you come to Beaufort, SC (would love to go to the Rivera - but probably not going to happen) so I am going to try to be there next year!

  3. so wonderful to see these photos, jane...maybe i will get into your class in saluda next year.... ;-)

  4. Beautiful re-cap of a wonderful weekend :) It was GREAT to finally enjoy this class *and to MEET you!* Mayhap the weather will be more 'normal' next year when you return. Many thanks for sharing your incredible talents with us! I LOVE Don's sketch of downtown :-D

  5. Thanks so much for sharing all those wonderful pictures! Looks like you had a great time. So nice to see hubby there enjoying himself too. He has such a pleasant face. How about trying a tree pose......sometimes that pose your doing works for you and sometimes it doesn't.....may just be the timing of the photographer...i don't Hugs! deb

  6. What a nice post about our little part of the universe! Great photos, great classes, a fabulous teacher and good friends made for a perfect weekend. Maybe next year we'll be able to show you weather that's more typical of these mountains. Say 'Hi' to Bob for me!

  7. Well, DUH! ... she said, quite embarrassed!!!

  8. I love Saluda. Your student's smiling faces say it all - fun, learning, sharing, and more fun. Don is so handsome. Wishing you both a fantastic weekend.

  9. It looks like you all had so much fun. Wish I lived closer!

  10. You might also like my previous comment about you being Yogalicious and Husb being adorable. ;o)


Thanks so much for visiting!
