The Great Green Okayness girlfriend gathering in Duluth, MN and Art-making!

By Rachel Awes on August 29, 2016

I’m SO grateful to my friend, Lori Sparkly Franklin, for hosting “The Great Green Okayness girlfriend gathering” in her Duluth home, so we could reflect, together, on our dear magnificence…


In addition to the sweet company & conversation, her home was magical,


the food, sublime,



and art-making in her inspired studio the next day, a fabulous bonus!





My new friend, Irene, helped stitch the word “begin” on to a canvas I was working on & here are more pics of my play in this lovely space:

In closing, a pic of Lori (a glorious painting by Lori!) & I outside her art studio door:

My cup truly runneth over with joy & gratitude! (Speaking of such a cup, stay tuned for new art related to this theme in next week’s blog post) ♥

If you might also like to consider hosting a gathering to spread encouraging word of our deep magnificence, please contact me at I would love to hear from you! With all my love xox, Rachel
