Shared from the CEO of Where ART Lives-WANDERLUST

19  Days and Counting until ITALY!!

Yesterday I began training a wonderful new team member who will begin by taking over while I am in Italy, some of my job tasks that cannot be done in advance,

So.....though I have not even begun to plan out clothing, or art supplies....or anything else for that matter....I consider that to have been trip preparation time!!:) YAY!

I travelled a lot in Asia, way back in the day when hubby was in the Navy, and I would meet up with him in wonderful ports, but I have not travelled outside of the U.S. ( other than Mexico) in 25 years!
Yes...I know how pitiful that is....but I did raise four wonderful sons that are now four wonderful MEN!!


Any travel tips would be greatly appreciated.....feel free to leave them in the comments below.

So.....20 Days and Counting until ITALY!!

I am working like a madwoman -working ahead at my job, so that I don't have to take it with me.
The beauty of my job is that I can take it anywhere that has internet- the curse is I have to take it everywhere I go, unless I work ahead!!

So.....as the fairy blogmother, I am posting ahead for those two weeks for 27 artists....yes.... on all of their blogs and social media sites....YIKES!!!!

You  DO know you can post ahead....right? Just checking in, because every once in while,  I run across an artist who does NOT know that you can schedule your blog posts ahead, as well as your facebook posts on your business page. If you need more info on this.....be sure to reach out to me!


I am also in the midst of an accelerated business course.....what made me to jump into that at such an already crazy time- I am not sure!! Sometimes the time is just right- and I have been putting off this class for awhile. So early mornings and late nights are being spent on homework!

But....Back to ITALY....As I shared yesterday, I will be in Florence, Cortona and the Chianti Hills. I would love to hear from you in the comments below. Have you been to any of these places? What were your favorite sights? What should I put on my Do Not Miss list??


Let's INSPIRE each other..... Leave a comment below:)

A Thought for Today....


Oh MY Goodness!!

 It hit me today that I leave for my Dream Trip to Italy in just 21 days!

 I have been so busy with work and puppies and house guests, the days have flown by.

 This trip has been a dream of mine for longer than I can remember.

 It is an art workshop with my dear friend Joan Fullerton, and another dear friend Judith Babcock is  going as well!

 We begin with 2 days in Florence....just for fun....


Followed by  3 days/nights painting in Cortona (the town from my  favorite movie "Under the Tuscan Sun").


We then travel to the Chianti Hills to a restored 12th century monastery for 4 days of painting.


Our view from the terrace!



We complete the trip with one last day/night in Florence.

Oh My....what more could a girl ask for ??

Well, I shall tell you what more.....my dear sweet HUBBY is taking 12 days of vacation to be home with our furry family of five.

That my friends, is the super thick butter cream icing on the cake!!

I'd love to share my trip with YOU, and will post updates as often as possible while gone.

Click HERE to like my Facebook art page, where updates will be posted!!

And.....if you have any special travel plans coming up, I would love to hear about them in the comments below...let's inspire each other!!
