Thanks all! Midnight and still lots of work to do before I'm ready for the weekend show to begin! All is going well so far.

Lisa, I earned my Bachelor's Degree in Art Therapy at Mercyhurst College in Erie, PA. One does not need to have a Bachelor's degree in specifically art therapy to go on to get their Master's in Art Therapy and then become certified and licensed. I went to Grad School for my Master's at Springfield College in Massachusetts. You can find listings online of schools that offer the program. You can find out more information at www.arttherapy.org. Also, it is important to note that every state has different requirements for licensure, which is good to know before you get too far into it. I am still working on getting my license.

Susan, thank you, it is amazing the healing power of art!

Rachael, great work.  I have two children who are grown now and counsel children and at one of their places of work one counselor introduced painting to a group of high school boys.  They ended up making a mural in their game room.  My daughter said they really met a need in these boys in just allowing them to paint.  I pray God continues to bless your work.

Hey guys, I'm here in Dallas and taking part in the Mastermind group. Awesome

Rachel, I'm reading the article about you...art therapy, social work and artist? Wow! Very impressive!

Just wanted to check in real quick to share a blessing. It's been a busy week so far getting ready for the tour, though there have been plenty of distractions...this being one:

Enough of the "wrong things" occurred to make it possible for a lengthy article about my work and the Tour to be put in our local paper today.

Brad, hope that the computer problems are resolved quickly. Lord know I know. We have had a line of computers failing and working for 17 years ago. I'll check out your blog today.

Yes, Raven, it's a beautiful thing! I'm so happy to see her doing well.

Wow, Eddie!  That's fantastic!! So glad you had a great time and that your daughter is doing so well!  : )

Howdy from Kentucky, everyone!  It's been a crazy-stressful week so far, and I'm going nuts from not being able to check in here more often.  I could fix my computer, but it would cost about as much as buying a new one, neither of which I can afford to do right now, anyway, so the point is moot...

But so far, I've been able to stick to my October blog-a-thon; I'm not going to let my computer troubles get in the way of what I want to do.  Tomorrow, the third piece goes up.  I haven't had much action over there yet, but it's early in the month, and I'm hoping it will grow.

Best of luck to everyone in their endeavors---I may not be around here much, but you're all still in my prayers.
