I just got back from a long weekend craft retreat at Moments Retreat with my team. We love this place! I had team members, Stamp Club members, and a few friends for a total of 11 this time. We spent hours talking and stamping plus enjoyed happy hour, music, DVDs, and a steak night.
Here’s the gift I made for them. I let everyone pick which girlfriend set they wanted. The book is a spiral notebook for taking notes at the retreat or whenever. Also, the girlfriends can be put on a scrapbook page or made into a card.
I love spending time with these ladies. Here are some more photos from the studio space. We use any extra tables for shared tools like punches, inks, and die cutting/embossing stations.
Most everyone brings a bottle or two of wine to share. It’s fun to sample the different wines.
We also have a tradition of steak on the grill (Grill Night) on Saturday night. I have one friend that does links, but everyone else brings a steak for me to grill. Luckily, everyone except two ladies wanted medium rare which made it fairly easy.
I can’t wait to go again. I never get quite as much done as I think I’m going to do. However, I did design/make 31 cards between all the fun. I’ll be posting photos of them in future posts. I brought a frame to do a Summer wall art, but I’ll have to work on that in my own studio.
