Brighten Workshop & Tea

Hello friends!
Some of you might just remember that last year around this time a group of Texas bloggers began to put on their thinking caps on how to create a Bloggers Art/ Craft Retreat.
Well, the retreat was a huge success, we had such an inspiring, creative, successful and educational experience that we are preparing for our second year!
We are also implementing creative ideas to make it even more fantastic than the year before. 
The Brighten organizing team is delighted to announce our upcoming Brighten Workshop.


Brighten is a creative DIY blogging workshop where confidence grows and long lasting friendships are formed.
We are a community of people who seek to learn and create in an effective manner.
By gathering together and sharing our interests, passions, knowledge and creativity we are able to pass that information on to one another.

  • We  harmoniously gather together to educate, communicate, create, inspire, and at the same time brighten the lives of each other and our readers. 

  • Share tips and encouragement.

  • Our workshop session this year will include lectures and networking as well as a make and take, mini swag, afternoon Tea with assorted sweets, and fruit plate.

  • Because of our space constraints our workshop is currently open to twenty five bloggers.

  • Our long term vision for Brighten is continued growth with our workshop spanning over two days.

Jemma's home is a quiet spot nestled among the trees. You might find me writing, reading, or puttering in my Greenhouse, tweaking a recipe, crafting a wreath or loving on my grands. Always living with a grateful heart.
