Film Friday – September

Most of these are a repeat from my workshop at Squam but I wanted to include them here for my film friday blog circle.  These are medium format (Mamiya Pro) with  Fuji 400H film.

And one of my sweet boy on 35mm:

52 Fridays – Week 38 {Glamour}

When I first came across the idea of “Glamping” (Glam + Camping = Glamping), I couldn’t think of a better way to describe Squam Art Workshop.  It is definitely glamour camping.  I’ve never been so pampered on a campout. Who am I fooling?  It’s been years since I’ve even been on a campout!  So Squam is exactly my kind of camping – comfy beds with good linens, unlimited hot water in the indoor shower, great food, cozy cabins with fireplaces.  Everything a girl could want on a camping trip.  Here are some of my favorite images from the week:

My cabin and cabin mates:

The beautiful view from our dock:

 

The end result of Helene’s cupcakes class:

The Wish Tree:

Alena’s Awaken the Muse painting class (check out her online class here):

I loved the affirmations on one of my classmate’s brushes – how sweet are these?

And other random Squam goodness…

The beauty of Squam truly lies in the women, both those that attend and those who work tirelessly to put the whole thing together.  It is a community of creative women coming together to support and encourage one another.   It was truly magical – everything I expected it to be and difficult to put into words (at least for me).  For those looking for a little more information, my friend and cabinmate Michelle has written a beautiful summary of her time at Squam. You can check it out here.

As I was working to tie this week’s theme into my experience at Squam, I looked up the actual definition of the word Glamour.  One of the definitions listed took me by surprise.  It defined Glamour as “magic” or “enchantment”.  Based on that definition, there is nothing more glamourous than Squam.

52 Fridays – Week 37 {Dream}

It’s always interesting to me when the week’s theme lines up perfectly with where I am.  Last January I booked a flight and made a reservation for the Squam Art Workshop.  I discovered it a few years ago and have been dreaming of going ever since.  It seems like the perfect way to spend a few days away.  A place to reconnect to my creativity and meet other women supporting each other on this creative journey.  In the crazy chaotic world that is life with 3 children I don’t often have time to dream.  Looking forward to it!  Be sure to check out the link above and see what it’s all about.

52 Fridays – Week ?? {Relaxation}

I've missed so many Fridays in a row, I'm not even sure what week it is!  Summer has been hectic but now that school has started I am hoping to get back to my regular posting.  Here is my sister's new puppy “relaxing” on their back porch.
