There is so much to tell about my four days in Utah attending Spark No.3. One could be...well actually IS, overwhelmed on many levels as to the creativity incited to near hysteria while attending Spark. The enthusiasm was contagious, the art projects stimulating, the sista's inspiring, the decor simply gorgeous, the new friends wonderful. And the instructors and hostess...outta this world!
Putting it all into words and photos is a bit foreboding...so let's start from the beginning...shall we?
my dear lizzie.
nancy wyatt. she was already a sista. we are members of rhonnaDESIGNS creative team. she is to blame for lighting a fire within and helping me to see my way to Spark. and i will forever be thankful. she will never fully know the way that she helped create for me. she has believed in me for several years. sometimes we need others to see for us...she. she did just that. appreciating forever when women genuinely and authentically encourage one another to uncover their gifts and give them wings to fly to places they were not themselves sure of. nancy...blessed me beyond measure. i am forever grateful.
and that was just the very first day...spark was not to begin until the next.
nancy was also responsible for hosting a dinner to bring all the new attendees together the evening before Spark opened. again...women creatives accepting and befriending one another immediately in a way that is not found in many places. we all swapped handmade gifts with one another. (you may peek at that tomorrow). we laughed. chatted. ate. drank. and began a new journey into creative newness that would stay in our hearts for long after the event.
i hope you will join me this week as i relive the Spark...i hope, mostly, and above all, that you might be inspired to be sparked. and how i would dearly love that little fire burning within might find you making a commitment next year to SparkNo.4...
