Full Circle...

Hey Sparks!
It's me Margie...
I am in HOT & sunny Arizona getting ready to teach at the Creative Escape and up at the crack of dawn...
I woke up thinking about so many different things, but mainly Spark...
We are getting so close to the event! So many exciting things coming together the last few weeks before Spark...As I laid in bed rolling around trying to get back to sleep I couldn't help but feel energized and excited about all the last minute details we are putting into Spark...I loved Rhonna's post about our decorations and all the fabulous ideas we have tried to put into the "look & feel" for Spark this year...I get giddy when I see the photos...I also was thinking about the classes this year and the group of teachers we have to share with you and their diverse types of creativity..
I wanted to get to know some of our teachers better so I was checking in on their blogs. Em is back in Australia and am amazed by the way she lives her life. So different from mine yet so a like in the fact that we both live a life creative...That is what I love about this event...The celebration is in creativity, all types...Em and I couldn't be more different yet our friendship started out of a common love for "making stuff." I was looking at some of Em's work and grabbed a few of my favorite things...
I love this canvas...LOVE...Love it's message, 
it's earthy-ness...
LOVE the way she shot it...So Em...
You are going to LOVE her...
Then I went over to Janet's blog...
She is amazing...Really...
I have to say her work inspires me as a scrapbooker...Again, reading her blog, getting to know her better has me excited to create, make stuff...She has such a beautiful way of putting it all together...


There are so many things i LOVE about this layout...Ok there is NOTHING i don't LOVE about it...Janet's class will surely be great...
Wendy is one of our teachers who I don't know, know, but I do know her work...She is so talented, so creative and so excited to be teaching at Spark...When I called her on the phone to ask her if she would be interested in Spark she was so gracious and the feelings I got from her just felt "right" she was a fit...This is a shot of her adorable family...She teaches all over the world and I feel so lucky to know she is going to be with us at Spark!
This is a photo Wendy shot of Mindy...I mean how random is that...I met Mindy sorta Via April and come to find out Wendy shot the photos for Mindy's new CD...
Again...Creativity is like a circle when it's shared...It all comes and goes and ebbs and flows and as it does we are all connected...Margie, Rhonna, Liz, Emily, Janet, Wendy, April, Mindy and all of YOU...
I love love love spark...
I love that YOU will all come and be part of a creative circle...Sharing ideas and passions...
Learning new ways to live a life creative...
Only 2 weeks away...We are busy getting every detail ready...
No wonder I couldn't sleep...
Kiss kiss

These thoughts are so beautiful and really quite profound, Miss Margie. They make me even more pleased that I made the decision to attend. Thank you for them and for all the thought and hard work you are all going to for the betterment (not sure that is a word) and enhancement of our lives.
