It’s almost time! This will be your inspiration as we paint our very own Goddess Icons this weekend, June 21-22nd at Glitter Gypsy Studio in beautiful Honolulu, Hawaii. I’ll be leading you step-by-step through the process, so don’t worry, even if you feel that you can’t even paint a stick figure–seriously. All you need is a desire in your heart & soul to EXPRESS YOURSELF…to find yourself…to reclaim YOURSELF. If you’re feeling a tug or stirring inside, that’s your soul trying to get your attention, trying to get you to wake up & create the life you really desire. Signing up is easy. Just click on the “Events & Adventures” tab & you’re in! Sending you much love, beauty & aloha, Susan Conrad Risse, aka *The Glitter Gypsy*

Aloha Friends and Fellow Goddesses!

Then I’ve got just the right medicine for you! You are cordially invited to “The Goddess Alchemy Painting Retreat,” a very exciting and empowering painting weekend. It’s happening here at Glitter Gypsy Studio, in gorgeous Honolulu, Hawaii.

Over this momentous weekend together, we’ll journey into the very depths of your soul’s innate wisdom, allowing you to discover and then create your own Goddess Icon.

Throughout this inspirational experience, using Intentional Creativity, you won’t have to worry about a thing. I’ll be guiding you through a simple step-by-step process. As your journey progresses, you’ll become enlightened, allowing your insight to guide you in creating your own “Goddess Icon.” When you leave with ‘Her,’ you’ll continue to feel the essence of the energy and intention that you’ve put into Her & she will continue to bless and inform you.

I welcome this opportunity to get to know you better and would absolutely LOVE to inspire and create with you!

A light lunch, healthy snacks & beverages are included. You’re also welcome to bring something for our snack bar, if you’d like, but don’t feel obligated.

Gypsy Night MarketIMG_2280

Come join me this Friday evening, December 6th, from 5:30-10-00p.m. at Honolulu’s “First Friday Art Event & Night Market.” I’ll be in the “Chinatown Courtyard,” located street level below the “Chinatown Artist Lofts” at 1126 Smith Street. Finish your Christmas shopping in one place! My current inventory of paintings, art prints, jewelry & more will be on sale for this one night event. I’ll also be having a drawing for a door prize. Just stop by & drop your business card or name & email in the box & I’ll let you know if you’ve won. You needn’t be present at the time of the drawing to win. We’ll also have live music, food & a *Secret Beer Garden* there. What’s not to like? For your information, I also accept the “ID Card” (Hawaii Isle Discount Card,) which will save you an additional 20% off all purchases! Not sure what to buy someone for Christmas or Hanukkah? Buy them a gift certificate for merchandise or one of my art workshops, parties or private lessons!

**Note: It’s a little tricky to find because it’s a courtyard, located between Smith and Maunakea Streets, with an entrance off either street. It lies with the square block between these two streets & N. Hotel Street & N. Pauahi St. (It’s not well marked, so if you can get within this square block, just poke around or ask where the Chinatown Artists lofts are.) One of the entrances is located catty-corner from the Maunakea Marketplace on Maunakea St. Whew! Trust me- that’s the hardest part, the rest will be fun! See you Friday! Thanks!

Hi everybody! It’s been a very busy & adventurous year & I must admit– I’ve been very absent here! What I’ve found is that it’s much easier to follow me on Facebook at http://www.facebook.com/SusanConradRisse ~ OR ~ on my Artist Page at http://www.facebook.com/GlitterGypsy. I’m also on Twitter @SusanRisse, LinkedIn( Glitter Gypsy Risse) & am now getting started over on Instagram at glittergypsies. You can also check out my “OMG’s” (One Minute of Glitter) on my YouTube channel gypsyinparadise. I’m posting on Facebook nearly every day, so I really do hope that you will come on over to one or better yet (for me, anyway) ALL of these windows of my world & “friend, follow or like” me! I SO appreciate your following me here & really hope that I’ll see you over there now too! I’m also COMPLETELY REVAMPING my website (this one) http://www.glittergypsy.com to a beautiful, updated visual feast that will include all of my new artwork, offerings AND an on-line store, where you’ll be able to view & purchase my original art, giclees, prints, jewelry & more all in one place! There will also be workshops & other class offerings (on-line & in-person) & other projects that I’ve been working on all year for your perusal.  I’m super-excited to be working on this & can’t wait to open it! It is, however, a huge undertaking, so I’m not exactly sure when I’ll be launching it, but I’ll announce it here, as well as over on my other social media sites. Again, thank you so much for following me here. I’m not going anywhere, but I just wanted to offer you some additional options as to where you can follow me. I really hope that you will.

I’d like to leave you with a quote from Rumi, as well as my latest painting, which is still drying on the easel.

“What you seek is seeking you.” Rumi

She Creates Her Own Sweet Reality

What an amazing event at the Kahala Resort in Honolulu, HI that I attended on Saturday. Professors Bliss Lau (Designer) & Jasmine Takanikos (Branding Strategist)from Parsons The New School of Design in NYC held a Master Class & Networking Workshop full of incredible information for creative entrepreneurs. Such a rare chance to learn from such successful leaders in their respective fields.I’m always eager to learn new information & new ways approaching business.

Hello, dear friends! How have you been? I’ve been away for a while due to some health issues, so I REALLY appreciate your stopping back in here! I’ve missed you.

Anyhoo, I’m really excited to announce my next event, and I do hope that you can join me! It’s on the evening of 12/12/12 in Honolulu, Hawaii at Glitter Gypsy Studio. Mark it on your calendar, ok? It’s not only on the night of the “New Moon,” which symbolizes new beginnings, but numerically, it’s also really significant. The next time we have a numerical line-up like this will be in 01-01-2101! And it’s also my Birth-day! Not to mention that my Birth-Day is & has always fallen on the Feast Day of the Virgen of Guadalupe, Protectress of all of the Americas & my Patron Saint. So…if these aren’t enough reasons to celebrate & create in community, then I don’t know what is?! After a rough year for me & for so many others that I know, would you like to join me for an evening of abundant new energy? This potent combination of the New Moon’s energy, the numerical energy of 12/12/12, the Feast Day of “Our Lady,” revered by so many around the World & the energy of me beginning a brand new year in my life is sure to create a powerfully energizing night! Won’t you please join me as we vision our future together in a creative way?

What to expect:

**5:30-6:15p.m.: Drinks, food & socializing

**6:15-6:45p.m.: Circle Ritual: Introductions, Connection, Ritual

**6:45-8:45p.m.: Creating Your “Vision Board” for 2013 by visually documenting the coming year as you see & desire it to be. We will be journalling, collaging, embellishing & of course, !glittering! onto your Vision Board to cement your intentions into your psyche & then send them out into the Universe. You will leave with not only a beautiful piece of art that you’ve created, but a tangible visual reminder to refer to throughout the coming year. Setting clear intentions &  seeing visual reminders dramatically improves your success rate for living your “Dream Life” in 2013. By ‘putting it out there’ rather than just having “spinning thoughts” in your head allows it to become REAL. **NO PREVIOUS ART EXPERIENCE NECESSARY.**

**8:45-9:15p.m.: Closing Circle Ritual with community sharing

**LIVE MUSIC BY INTERNATIONAL PROFESSIONAL SINGER/SONGWRITER LUCIE LYNCH TO ACCOMPANY & ENHANCE OUR CREATIVE ENERGY**

This is my gift to all of you. I would like to share the energy of my Birth-day & the energy of 12/12/12 & the New Moon with anyone who like to do this. Practicing “Intentional Creativity” (as taught to me by my teacher & mentor, Shiloh Sophia McCloud) has completely changed my life, so I’d like to share this gift with you, as well. Would you like to re-boot, wipe the slate clean & begin anew in 2013? Then this is the event for YOU!

And it’s FREE. There’s no catch. I just want to share this evening with those of you who feel that this is something that speaks to you & that you would feel empowered by doing! And it’s going to be FUN–I promise! (If you’d like to bring some food or drink to share with the group, or leave a donation in the box to cover the cost of my supplies, that would be gratefully appreciated. But, again, there is NO expectation of anything FROM you, I just want to share my time, energy & creativity WITH you. Also, if you’d like to bring a personal item to place on the alter as an offering or prayer, you are welcome to do that, as well.)

So—If this is something that you’d like to do, please leave a comment below or email me at susan@glittergypsy.com so I can plan accordingly. Space is limited, so if you’d like to come, please let me know as soon as possible. Also, as the date approaches, begin by spending some quiet time with yourself every day or every other day, at least. Even 10 or 15 minutes is enough. Go through magazines, books & the like & just randomly tear out images, words, quotes, etc. that “speak to you.” (There doesn’t need to be any rhyme or reason to your process–just tear it out. Let your subconscious mind, rather than your conscious mind do the work for a change. I’ll also have plenty of supplies here, but by doing this in advance, you’ll have more to work with.) Also try doing some journalling or free-writing during this quiet time & allow things to just flow onto the page. Again, don’t think about it too much, just write down what comes to you. There’s no judgement here, we’re just trying to activate our “right brains,” since we spend most of our time in our “left brains” doing more logical type work. We just want to balance our right & left brains, so that creativity can inform our daily lives. It is a great way to achieve a more balanced life. Instead of always thinking, planning, doing, making lists & the like, if we can also tap into our just being-ness, dreaming, doodling, painting, etc., that balance is more accessible. We sort of have to re-train our brains, otherwise, we just end up in stress & burn-out much of the time. You can actually get MORE done by using BOTH sides of your brain & end up feeling happier & more joy-full!

OK, you ready? I can’t wait to spend time with you, my friends! It’s going to be awesome & inspiring!!!
