Flora Bella Weekend Retreat! September 27-29, 2013

I am beyond thrilled  to host and announce this special art retreat weekend!

To be held in the lovely central Florida town of Micanopy,  this is a weekend all about the beauty of flowers....

Our home away from home for the weekend shall be the gorgeous HERLONG MANSION!

Visit the website here:

The featured  project will be presented by the talented Cassandra VanCuren!  

I am certain if you are here on my blog,  you know and follow the works of Cassandra.  

 She is one of the most creative spirits I know who is full of artful knowledge!

Visit her at:

 This is your chance to take part in a weekend beyond imagination...

The featured project is The Flora Bella Bodice... an intricate and divine art piece!  You will  create your own hanging dress form beyond imagination!  

You will learn many different fabric flower techniques which will embellish this decoupaged dress form...  The kit provided will allow you to be the master creator from start to finish......

It is a breathtaking piece of art for you to hang and display year round..perhaps in your art studio, your bedroom, a powder room, a guest room etc!

After breakfast Sunday morning I will be teaching some  floral and herbal home made bath products!  When you return back home that evening you can relax and escape in a long hot bath and savor the memories of this special weekend!

Here are some details about the weekend:

$275 includes all of the project materials, lunch both Saturday and Sunday, and a sit down dinner Saturday night.  This fee can be sent to Karen through Paypal at  

The mansion has several rooms ranging in price from $119-$189 per night.  You are responsible for booking your own room.  The rooms can accommodate 2-3 people.  The rooms will fill quickly so be sure and call to reserve your room right away.  Let them know you are with The Flora Bella Art group.

Micanopy is a wonderful historic town with many antique shops.  If you would like to shop, we encourage you to arrive a day early!  Due to the special nature of this one of a kind project, we will want  to spend all day Saturday and most of Sunday at the retreat.

If you have attended one of my events before you will be receiving a complete detailed email about Flora Bella.  If you are not on my email list and would like to be, contact me here through my blog or you may email me at

Can't wait for this beautiful weekend getaway with special friends!  Would love to see you there!!
