My friend, Anna, just realized her dream of owning a crafting retreat. She bought this charming turn of the century house in Bonham, TX last Fall. She’s been getting the house renovated and stocked with paper crafting tools and supplies to be ready for the grand opening. In the meantime, 9 of my lucky friends and I got to try it for FREE!!! It didn’t take long to find friends that wanted to craft all day and all night at a weekend retreat for free…duh! Did I mention catered meals were included. That was amazing to craft away (it’s actually called Craftaway Studios) until the caterer announced breakfast, lunch, or dinner was ready. We had so much fun that I can’t wait to do it again. I made 32 cards, decorated one Card Keeper box, helped Tracy design the scrapbook she was working on, and helped Dawn make a Mother’s Day card. Maybe I’ll scrapbook at the next one.
Did I mention the snack bar? Candy, and granola, and biscotti, oh my! Funny thing is that I would forget it was there since I’m not use to having a 24 hour snack bar at my disposal…probably a good thing, but don’t get me wrong, I sampled several items.
