Since March I've been plannig for this day.

For months I searched to find the right location to host this event.

Since September I've been cutting and collating packets.

Hours and hours of planning are finally HERE!

Today is my semi-annual, all day crafting retreat.  Today's event is called "Crafting at the Lodge" because we are at the Lakeland Elks Lodge.  This location is beautiful!  Not only is it conveniently nestled off a main street but it's far enough back in a small wooded area that it's quiet which makes for the perfect getaway!  We have over 2,200 square feet all to ourselves and trust me, I've used every inch!

There are 6 make & takes…well, that's at least what I originally said. Those 6 projects morphed into a bit more but I think that all 35 women attending will be happy with them.   These are just a snippet of what we'll be doing. I willl be sharing the projects with you, individually, over the next few weeks in videos and blog posts.  If you aren't subscribed to my You Tube Channel or my Blog, you might want to do that so you don't miss anything.

In addition to the make & takes, three, home-cooked meals are included, a candy bar, games, prizes and of course, the beloved "Prize Patrol".   I don't give away small stuff either.  My total prize crate is worth over $383.00!


There are a few other surprises, too, but I won't divulge those just yet…just in case I have a retreat attendee reading this post before they arrive.

Mark your calendar now!  The next Retreat will be on Saturday, March 21, 2015.  The location has yet to be determined but I can guarantee a few things:

  • the location will be fabulous!
  • it's an awesome value!
  • it will fill quickly.  I still had a waiting list for today's event!
