So a few people have asked me about the ‘Go a Little Wild’ that is being offered in the Art Cabin.
What is it all about?
This. this is what it is all about.
Our soul goal (did you see what I did there?) is to create a space on our little farm where women can come and connect, relax, create, catch their breath, learn, talk…all of the things that are missing sometimes in our busy lives.
I live in an area where women have lots of stuff going on. Many have big families, both immediate and extended and with big families comes lots of required time. They are involved in school, church, family, work, and a million other things.
There is a lot of pressure these days to do it all, do it perfectly, and what pressure doesn’t come from outside influences, comes from ourselves. We are hard on ourselves. We don’t feel like it’s ok to take time to do something we love, or spend time on just us.
Those are the lies. The truth is that we need to spend time on ourselves. You can’t give when you are empty. I know that there have been times when I literally felt like I could not give anymore because there was no more left to give. I was dried up like the salt flats people. DRIED UP. I still get that way sometimes.
I have also gotten better at giving to myself. Guess what? It turns out that it’s ok. The family still carries on. It’s good for me and good for them. They have learned that, they can indeed, do things for themselves and do them well. I, personally, think that is a gift. I also think it’s a gift to teach my girls that it’s ok to take time for themselves and it’s good for them, even now. Their lives are crazy sometimes and they will both take quiet time when they need it.
SO that is what this ‘Go a Little Wild’ time is about.
Come here, maybe with a group of friends, maybe you will meet new friends, maybe you will quietly work on your projects and not talk a lot, that’s ok too. You can work on any projects you have lying around you just can’t quite get to because there is never enough time. There is wi-fi if it is editing photos or doing something online, you can bring your sewing machine, we have glue guns and scissors. We have beautiful adult coloring books and pencils that you are welcome to use. There will be a few kits of simple projects you can make. (Those will vary from time to time.)
We will provide a beautiful space. The cabin has a feeling in it, that I hope everyone feels there, that is peaceful and calming. I am going to try out all of the recipes I’ve been pinning for months, the ones that are yummy and indulgent and beautiful. I will work around your food allergies so that you can also eat the yummy stuff. If weather is permitting, there will be a fire in the fire pit on the Saturday night times. I believe strongly in the healing power of sitting by the fire. So, to sum it up, it is about spending time around other grown-ups, being pampered a little, doing something relaxing, and taking time for yourself. THAT is our goal. To provide that to all of you that want to come but maybe can’t do another class right now. There isn’t anyone out there who can’t use a little TLC.
Here’s another super cool thing. If you want to schedule a time for just you and your friends to come together we will schedule a time just for you. Reach out to us and we will figure it out. firstname.lastname@example.org
I hope we will see YOU spending some time on yourself sometime soon!!
Have a beautiful weekend my friends!!
