Fall Retreat Updates!
We are about 7 weeks away from the Fall Retreat!! It's finally getting here and I'm working on making final preparations. Here are a few quick updates:
I still have spots available if anyone is interested in bringing a friend or hasn't sent in their registration yet. If the guest is new I will wave the $10 late fee. There is room in both the semi-private rooms and the DRC.
September is free shipping month! Make sure you have plenty of tape runner refills, white card stock, albums and fun papers to complete your retreat layouts. Free shipping is only available if the order is placed directly with me. I'll bring your order to the retreat. Just let me know in the next few days if there is anything that you will be needing. The new paper packs are very pretty and while you are waiting for the retreat you might want to give Studio J a try from home!
Unfortunately, due to low participation, I'm going to cancel the massage therapist. My apologies to those of you that signed up. Hopefully the retreat itself will relax you!
As you know Friday night is Potluck night. Last year the crockpots were out of control...although having 20 different main meals to choose from was awesome! But to prevent that issue this year I've come up with a more practical solution. I'll list a category and how many dishes are needed. Just pick a category, send me an email/fb message and I'll put your name down. Please give me 2 choices in case it fills up quickly. You do not need to tell me what you are bringing...just pick a category! Each category should feed 4-6 people.
MAIN DISH - 5 (this may/may not include meat but would be considered a main meal in your home. ie contains protein!)
SALAD/SIDE DISH - 5 (leaf salad, jello salad, cooked carrots,baked beans, etc)
DESSERT - 6 (chocolate, cookies, bars, cake)
APPETIZERS - 6 (mini hot dogs in bbq, finger sandwiches, fruit kabobs)
DRINKS - 5
Ok, that should do it for now! Remember that it's never too late to start looking at your photos, sorting through your stash and getting your mind ready to scrapbook! Plus it might inspire you to start scrapbooking BEFORE the retreat!
