Well, the date is fast approaching (April 18-19) and it is time for me to start getting VERY organized! I have already contacted some of you to find out for sure who can make it. If I haven't gotten a hold of you yet, please let me know!
I just talked to Mary, the owner of the Quilted Loon, and there is enough room for up to 18 people with 4 feet of table space per person! There is only enough room for up to 13 people to sleep in beds, and 4 people would need to share beds 2 beds, one is a full size I believe, and the other is a King. Otherwise there are 11 beds. So the rest of those spots could be for people who can't spend the night but would like to come anyway.
Once I have a list of people committed to this, then I will organize a "potluck" schedule/list to cover our meals. And find out if we all want to pitch in for Pizza delivery for a meal!
Also, I plan to bring all of my stamp sets, my Cuttlebug with dies and embossing folders, my Coluzzle and Creative Memories cutting systems, my punches, and all of my stamp pads. Everyone can use them and maybe we all can pool our non-consumables and have an enormous variety of stuff to play with!
We'll also have a door prize for each day and some games to play too! Nothing will be mandatory, but if you have some supplies you would like to donate to the drawings, I sure won't turn you down!
I want to share one of the specials I will be having during the retreat. I have some extra stamp sets from Sale-A-Bration this year and last year, and a couple other new unmounted sets that I will have for our own Sale-A-Bration. What does this mean? It means that if you order at least $50 in merchandise, then you get to pick one of those sets for free! This will be on first come first serve basis!
