I am still living on a cloud of wonder following the retreats in the woods; playing madly in the studio and reliving the laughter and quiet moments. Only loving friends can revitalize the soul this way - I am so grateful that Artfest brought us all together so that we could indeed live and love life wildly. (oh, the dreams I am dreaming for future play ...)

i have been anticipating this post. artfest is on my list, the timing wasn't right. i signed up for two of stephanie's classes for oct's art & soul portland, will be missing you. after taking your class last year i have been a texture layering, face painting crazy woman. thank you for sharing your sharing, a sweet mid week treat.


Hi Misty,
Nourishing your soul through friendships, art and nature seems just like you through and through. I am so glad to see you've returned with an abundance of spirit and continued love of life. These pictures tell so many stories- it's beautiful to see them.

I am so thrilled you are home celebrating your 34th birthday tomorrow!!! How perfect!!! I am so blessed to have found your blog, spirit and art filled life. Happy Birthday, Misty!!!



Wasn't it all wonderful and magical? I've been floating on a cloud...

Thank you so much for making your class so perfect. I've learned so much much from you. Not just techniques and great tips, but your soulfulness and bravery, doing what you love just shines through in magnitudes. It gives me hope, brightness and strength. Thank you for sharing some of that with me.

Have a beautiful birthday.

Annie Froese

Happy sweet 34 Misty!!! I have been peeking in on your blog site for the past week or so, wondering when you might make mention of your time at Art Fest. It is a dream of mine to be there one day! I just can imagine what it would be like as your descriptions and expressions of the experience are awe-inspiring! Kindred creative spirits, soul-sisters, losing yourself in the process, sharing, celebrating.... Wow! That's a perfect way to live a life! May this year bring you lots of happiness, discovery, and love. Hugs, Annie

What a great post. I felt your joyful emotions with each sentence. So glad you have those times with friends. I know how that can make all the difference in one's life.
I'm hoping that next year I can experience ArtFest. I'm making my way as last year was my first year to go away to take classes. It filled me.
Happiest of Birthdays and a peaceful Easter!


We met at Artfest! I am sitting going through my stack o card and visiting all the amazing blogs! I LOVE the dreamy quality of your blog, I am SO INSPIRED after looking at it! Wishing you artfest love all year long! --Lacy


dear one,
i can hardly bare to come here. your beauty is so profound it takes me out of my body. yet it makes me question the duality of my heart and the body it resides in. a kind of ecstasy and agony that i must wrestle with.

i adore you misty and always hold you in the lightest place of me.
i hope you will come just take a peek at something i believe will touch you...
i send love and blessings to you and your family. to every thing and every one you touch.


Diana Frey

Looks as though you had a fantastic time at Artfest again, Misty. You are so very blessed with such good friends and magic moments in your sweet life. Hoping you had a wonderful birthday celebration. Always love your photos and a glimpse into your life.
Thank you for sharing.
