Oh So Inspired

Who’s it for: All Creatives, Wedding Industry Professionals
Where: Sonoma, CA
When: November 6-9, 2016
What’s it all about: “Sometimes it’s not finding inspiration, but rather cultivating it from what already exists. In 2014, Oh So Inspired started when Nancy Liu Chin of Nancy Liu Chin Designs, Mary Phan of Very Mary Inspired & The Sketchbook Series , and Kelly McLeskey-Dolata of A Savvy Event got together to share how each reignited a passion for their work. For Kelly, it meant remembering that her goal was to provide her clients with a unique event —each one a stand-out because of her care and creativity. Nancy needed to challenge herself again—delving deeper to create original designs that might perhaps serve as motivation for others. Mary’s journey took her back to her roots as a sketch artist, but also down a new path as a teacher—her endeavor fueled by the excitement of the students in her classes.For these women, the inspiration necessary to take their work and business to the next level sparked a desire to bring a different kind of learning. With the success of the inaugural Oh So Inspired retreat in Sonoma, they hope to continue to share with you, a way to find that something within. Perhaps it will click during the sharing of stories, or an AH-HAH moment will strike after hearing one of our presenters speak, or maybe you’ll awaken the inner artist after participating in one of the many interactive lessons. In the end, the goal is for you to see that Oh So Inspired is really just Oh So You…We can’t wait to meet you!”
