Some of these will be open for everyone, subscribers or not, and others will only be for subscribers. Just a little tease as to what some of these things […]

I’m interrupting my regular postings to bring you this quick review of an absolutely stupendous event, especially for a first year! I would have to say the theme of the event this year was #colour!! It was everywhere, vibrant, and saturated. Here is a link to a walk through I did on Facebook.
