|Sweet swag from my class at Blue Eye Brown Eye|
The class itself was even better than I expected (fabulous space, sweet treats, fragrant candle burning while timeless tunes crooned in the background...), but what I didn't count on in the slightest were the other gals who joined me. I was honestly a little nervous, figuring that I'd be surrounded by picture-perfect creatives who were far too cool to converse with me. (First day of high school flash backs were dancing around in my crazy little head.) What I found were, in fact, beautiful, talented, creative ladies, but it was one of the sweetest groups I have encountered in a long time. Everyone had their own unique story and style, and they were so quick to share their hearts, speak lovingly of their families, and encourage each other with compliments on their neighbor's Os and Fs. To see a group of strangers (especially women) so quickly bond and drop down walls was incredible. (This ain't high school anymore, Toto.) I felt so stirred by the evening, and couldn't wait to get home with my arm-full of new supplies to show my beloved what I had learned.
I'm looking forward to spending the chilly weekend ahead sipping coffee and working on my strokes while my hard-workin' honey is tied up on a film shoot. Perhaps I'll even venture out and pick up some gouache to get my color on. Look out, this girl is wild!
