This past week I worked with about 200 dedicated educators in Bethel Public Schools in Spanaway, WA. The workshop was on Spaces & Places and using every inch of space for instruction. As part of the session, I walked teachers through the process of setting up their rooms, step by step. After class, Tom and I drove to Gig Harbor and enjoyed some quiet time by the marina there. Pure bliss! It was 70 degrees with no humidity. Quite a change from our home in Houston!
Last week in Ozark wasn’t all just about work! I decided to take a trip to Eureka Springs, Arkansas. Part of my quest these days is to “live an interesting life.” I’d read about Eureka Springs, but had never been there. It was almost a two-hour drive but was well worth it. Such lovely scenery along the way, too!
When I arrived, I was greeted by a burst of color and such amazing architecture! I saw one of three flatiron buildings in the U.S. (I have seen one in NYC before.) I met Blakely Wilson in her shop, Wilson & Wilson Folkart and had so much fun browsing (and buying a few trinkets for my home, too). Her shop was filled with layers of whimsical pieces that made me smile. I watched her work on one of her original paintings and heard about the talented artisans whose work she sells in her shop.
