Registration is now open for the 2014 Spring Retreat!  The retreat will be held at Epworth Forest in North Webster, Indiana March 7, 8 & 9.

We will be staying in Freeland House which is a hotel style facility.  There will be private rooms with either a queen size bed or 2 twin beds.  16 of the rooms have twin beds and 5 of the rooms have a queen size bed.  I will be filling the rooms on a first come/first serve basis.  Just let me know your room-mates name and if you would like a queen or twin beds.  Each room has a private bathroom with linen and towels included.  There is also a beautiful lobby/lounge area on each floor completely with couches, fireplace and beautiful views of the lake.

Our scrapbooking and dining hall are located in the basement/lower level of Freeland House.  I believe there were 12-15 steps to get down to the lower level.  There is a parking lot behind the building that has drive-up access to our scrapbooking room.  So you will be able to easily unload/load your scrapbooking supplies without using the stairs.  There are windows on three walls of the scrapbooking room but the majority of our light will be from overhead lighting.   

The dining hall is also located in the lower level next to our scrapbooking room.  We will have full access to all the fountain pop and coffee that you can drink.  Meals are served buffet style and are prepared on site by a chef!   He can accommodate food allergies such as gluten-free and dairy free.  If you have a special diet please notify me and I'll speak with him and come up with a plan.   We will be sharing the dining hall with other groups that are also staying on campus.

This years retreat registration will provide:
1 6ft scrapbooking table and comfy chair
Private room with linens--room shared with a friend (leave your sleeping bags at home!)
Private bathroom with towels
3 meals--Saturday breakfast, Saturday supper, Sunday brunch--which is huge!
Prize drawings
Unlimited fountain pop and coffee/tea/hot chocolate/water

All this is included for $140 per person based upon double occupancy.  If you require a completely private room please email me directly for availability and pricing.

As of December I have 22 spots filled for this retreat which means only 16 spots remain open.  The camp is renting out 3 of the hotel rooms to another group so we have a few less spots that I will be able to fill for this retreat.  I will keep the registrations open until all the remaining 16 spots are filled and then I will start a waiting list.

Payments can be mailed directly to me or payed by debit/credit card through Paypal.  Early bird registration ends January 15th.  All payments received or postmarked after January need to add $10 late fee.

CANCELLATION POLICY:  Retreat fees will be refunded in full, minus a $25 deposit fee, until February 21, 2014.  Registrations cancelled after February 21 will not be reimbursed.  If you have a family emergency or become ill the weekend of the retreat please contact me immediately.  I cannot forward deposit fees to future retreats.

For the Fall Retreat I was able to offer a massage therapist.  She ended up being a wonderful addition to the weekend and I plan to hire her to come back for this retreat.  She charges $30 for 30 minutes and $60 for an hour massage.  All payments will be made directly to the therapist and sign ups will be made at the retreat.

  1. With the fast-paced modern life, everyone needs some time to relax and take a break. A good way to do it is through massage. It helps to get relief from body pain, but beyond that, it has many other health benefits. It eases stress and anxiety and then helps to lower blood pressure. You can get a professional massage at a spa or hire a personal massage therapist. However, not everyone has the time or money for regular sessions. Massaging chairs offer a more affordable and user-friendly alternative with the same benefits. Best Massage Chair
