This April we have a large group with a few new faces. So excited to reunite and to make new friends!

We have our massage therapists coming back, along with Sutton to do pedicures. The massages are $45 for 45 minutes(Fri and Sat) and the pedicures $30 (Fri). Please bring cash for services and tips, as you will pay therapist. (You will receive a massage/pedicure email and we can start setting appointments.)

HAPPY NEW YEAR 2013!

You know, it seems like 2013 has been around awhile, doesn't it? But it is only 11 days old - hardly long enough to forget those resolutions! (What? I don't remember making any resolutions!) One of mine should be to update this blog more often. And, I will strive to do so.

So, starting now, let's update! April Retreat is coming fast and furious - 18th through the 21st. We are FULL to the brim! We have tried to accommodate all who have contacted us so far. This will be the largest groups that we have had. (Now, don't roll your eyes. If it were you that wanted to be included you would want us to find space!) We will be using the upper and lower level of the clubhouse - as much space as they will give us.

Lynn, will be creating her primo meals - with cruise ship dining - sorta. And, of course Teresa and I will be working on some kits and fun for all. Also, we will have our massage therapists, pedicurist and we will have a farewell screening of The Twilight Saga - Breaking Dawn, Part 2.

Since this will be a 1/2 table crop and additional space will be virtually nil, we will be doing the organization contest. There will be a grand prize awarded to the attendee who brings the least amount of "stuff" into the clubhouse. That means your car can be loaded, but just not your work space. We know this is a drag, but really, you can get so much more done with organization. We will be sending out a list of the contest fine points the first part of April.

All rightee then, go get 2013 and make some memories!

GIFT TAG EXCHANGE

Hello Ladies! It is the week of the retreat and one of the repeated questions is about the gift tag exchange. Here is a bit more information: I put together my supplies for the exchange today. The hardest part by far was coming up with the idea. Remember in the old days …....... how we had to flip through magazines (what are they?). We did not have the internet with google images and pinterest! Well, today I did some scraplifting – just a little. Don’t look so shocked! So, after finding my tag idea I created my sample. Then I cut my shapes, printed out whatever I needed, cut my ribbon, distressed my papers and I even put the scor tape on the edges. The night of the gift tag exchange, all I will need to do is assemble my tags. We have 27 ladies (this includes the worker bees) so I plan to make 30. Don’t ask why – just cause I like the sound of 30 and I will have a few extras. Not everyone participates. Who knows, you may not be planning to participate, but it is better to be safe……
So, if you are going to play, get your supplies as ready as you want. You can even make them ahead, but why? The best part of the fun is the creating in a group. The next best part is having to only think of one tag and then coming back with many different tags. See you soon!
