A couple of the women allowed me to photograph them with their completed pages. Here is Megan, who is a software consultant by day, and a talented artist and blogger all the time. I am very excited to check out her blog further, as what I've seen so far is a great read.
We were a diverse group in our 30s, 40s, and 50s, including an art therapist, a children and youth director, a stay-at-home mom (that's me!), a project manager, an author and artist, and others I look forward to learning more about at future gatherings. I came home feeling energized and inspired...and, after all, isn't that what it's all about?
