Haitian Journey

I just returned from spending a week in Mole Saint Nicholas, Haiti with the Northwest Haiti Christian Mission. It was a good trip. A journey into another culture. The above photo is a gate I discovered in Haiti. I am attracted to gates, doors, windows, etc. They speak to me of beginnings, journeys, and opportunities.

This trip was an opportunity for me to learn, grow, and contribute. In the next few posts, I hope to share with you images and lessons I learned on my journey into the land of Haiti – it’s culture and it’s people.

Giving Back & Fly Tribe Blog Hop

This is the first anniversary of my Fly Tribe group. It all started a year ago with signing up to Kelly Rae Roberts “Flying Lessons” course. It has been a journey filled with wonder and excitement. Best of all, I am now part of an awesome group of girlies that support each other not just in building an art business but in every aspect of our lives. I have even met a few of them in person and plan to meet many more at our “Fly Tribe” retreat next April.

As you travel through this Fly Tribe Blog hop you will find that we all have a common theme – giving back because of the gratitude we feel for all that has been given to us through this course and through each other.

Members of The Fly Tribe have donated money to the “Giving Flight ~ Giving Back” project. We are giving away, at last count, 8 scholarships to the last running of “Flying Lessons.” Also, extremely awesome is that Kelly Rae Roberts is matching our donations, one for one. What a generous spirit that I am so happy to be a part of in this wonderful group!

If you have a dream of starting a business with your art or expanding the one you have, please sign up and take Kelly Rae Robert’s class “Flying Lessons.” It will open up wonderful possibilities for you, just like it has done for me and the members of my Fly Tribe group. So sign up now for the opportunity to be a winner of one of the scholarships!
