Save the Date – A DIY By the Sea Retreat

I’m so excited. A DIY Paint by the Sea Retreat.

Did you hear?

I made a little announcement on Facebook today.  Go have a peek. I’ll wait…..

wanna paint by the sea? Come join me for a creative diy retreat

Did you see? We’re hosting a retreat.

I know…bad hair, terrible video but seriously…did you SEE that beach?? The resort?? Oh my.

Are you gonna save the date?

Feb 3rd to 5th 2017….right in the middle of winter when we NEED a little break right?

We’re hosting a DIY by the Sea Retreat at White Point Beach Resort.

Pinch me now. GUYS, you are gonna LOVE it here.

It will be an all inclusive, awesome event. Meals, rooms and a full weekend doing DIY by the sea included. I am thrilled White Point Beach Resort asked me to host the event with you, nothing fills my bucket like teaching a group of people how to paint and create. But doing so by the sea…well, that kinda overflows the bucket ;)

White Point Beach Resort is such an amazing resort beach resort in Nova Scotia Canada, perfect for a DIY retreat

Booking will be made through White Point Beach Resort directly, and prices will be according to which type of accommodation you choose.

White Point is an amazing resort. We have personally been travelling there since our kids we young, we spent all our March Breaks there as we could escape the snow and walk the beach even in February. Here’s a picture of the kiddos wayyyy back in 2005 on one of our trips to White Point.

Great accommodations, cracking fires, awesome food, roaring waves, nature walks, beach walks, pool, spa and add in some great paint and creative projects and……oh my shall I go on? You will park your car Friday afternoon and not need to leave or move until Sunday.

We will be making 8 projects, there’s no experience necessary, we will laugh, make new friends, get inspired, laugh, play and create. (We will totally be eating and drinking and relaxing too, I can promise you that).

There will be lots of free time, to explore or relax or keep painting.
