Holiday Retreat 2022 Recap!

Holiday Retreat 2022 RECAP!

I just finished having the most fun weekend I've had in a long time. One full weekend spent with 27 ladies at a retreat center = my heart is full!  I have this craft retreat each spring and fall, somehow it gets more fun each year!  We had perfect weather in a perfect setting with perfect friends! 

So much cutting and preparation with help from Judy Chapman and Beverly Kinneman! 

Santa's Elves (Cindy Griffin, Audra Jones, Tammye Hall and Susie Jones) made it look so pretty when we got to our event space! 

My husband and daughter even got in on helping with the fun gifts! 

Aren't these gifts Audra made cute!  They hold an altoids tin! 

Shawn Cranford helped me put the bows/dogs on these cute gifts.  We have a total spoilage situation here with surprise table gifts all weekend

Speaking of tables....Shawna Weatherly made a card out of her own placemat! 

No shortage of creativity here!

April Goodnight and Karla Shoemaker are diving right into the Make and Takes table

All smiles with new friends and old friends all weekend long! 

We love being spoiled with home cooked meals by 4H center all weekend!  Cooking is off the menu for us! 

The Dessert Contest is always a fun event. Susan Erickson wowed us with Christmas Crack. YUM!  All of the desserts were deeeeeeeelicious! 

We always enjoy the fun Pajama Contest! 

Santa even delivered milk and Christmas Cookies! 

GRAND PRIZE drawing!  WOOHOO!  So many fun prizes in store for the weekend! 

We loved our new space at 4H The Vines Conference Center

WHEW, what a weekend. These ladies (AND MORE) made it possible. So grateful for every hand that helped make the weekend possible. 

I hope you will join us at the Spring Retreat 2023 March 31st - April 2nd! CLICK HERE to pay your deposit now. The retreat is already half full!

Stamp N' Cruise Alaska 2024

Alaskan Stamp-N-Cruise 

We are very excited about our next great Stamp n’ Cruise adventure.  Alaska is a bucket list destination and traveling with a group is always more fun than traveling alone.  Bring your best friend, spouse and/or kids along (or leave them at home - whichever is best for you).

Here are the details:

2.  If you do not drink, or only have 1-2 extra beverages per day, you may leave off the drink package and save $138.60 on your fare per person.  Both people in the room must choose the same option.  (this is a gratuities charge for the open bar)

3.  If you have no extra charges or purchases on board, you will leave with a $0 bill.  All other purchases, spa services, excursions are extra.

7.  They are also offering to book flights and the second person flies free! 

8.  Inside and ocean view rooms are also available at lower rates, but you're going to want a balcony :)

Stampin' Cruise Swap using Waves of the Ocean

The things we let our friends talk us into! Haha. When we were on an incentive trip in Hawaii, my dear friend Sandy Risi approached me to talk about hosting a Stampin' Cruise to the Western Carribean. She's pretty here we are.  I am on my way to a sunny vacay in the ocean far away from reality.  
An epic trip calls for an epic swap. I wanted to use Waves of the Ocean collection ....obviously!  The warmer color papers kept drawing my eye!  I just kept seeing a sunrise, much like the gorgeous sunrises we saw in Hawaii!  The sailboat punch was on my desk (with a milllion other things after designing around 8 classes in one week!) and this card was born. I am quite in love with it and hope you like it too. 
The Waves Of The Ocean Bundle (below) will be available in the upcoming Annual Catlog
IMPORTANT: The designer paper, foil paper and rhinestones are WHILE SUPPLIES LAST!  Mark my will not last long! 
Watch me make the card here on YouTube Live. Never miss another YouTube live, subscribe to my channel today! I'm on each Wednesday at 8pm (except this Wednesday I will be sailing across the ocean!)

The base is Thick Basic White 4 1/4" x 11" scored at 5 1/2
Black: 4 1/8" x 3 1/8"
Designer Paper rectangles 2" x 3" (blue and oranges)
Scrap of Basic White for sailboats (assemble with mini glue dots)
