Well ladies...I have some EXCITING news!! 
I have CHANGED my Fall Retreat Date to September 6-8th instead of the original Oct dates I had previously announced.

Our lodging will be in TWO locations...
1. Beechwood motels available. 
These will be "First come, first serve". Room prices change according to how many people are in your motel room & range from approx. $190-$245 per person... this price includes EVERYTHING for the entire weekend.

2. Beautiful Log Cabins (newly renovated...they are like new!) 
They each have 3 different bathrooms right inside!! There are 7 bunk beds & 1 queen in each cabin. Bottom bunks will be first come, first serve.  (approx. price $150 includes everything for entire weekend)


We will be scrapbooking in the Chestnut Meeting Room, which is DIRECTLY below those of you in the motel style rooms above. This meeting room has great Wi-Fi , great lighting, 6 ft. tables & it was just a wonderful, cozy, happy atmosphere! 


Since last year's FALL retreat was a bit smaller attendance wise (23 people attended) - I have only rented one meeting room at this time.(Chestnut) 

*****HOWEVER***** 
.I do have the option to rent the other meeting room & and to do that we would need a "regular" sized papercrafting group of 38-45 people.  So spread the word & let your friends know about this papercrafting time together! 



If you'd like more details, I've created a EMAIL update & you can find that by clicking this link below....

I will be HAPPY to email you the registration form & flyer for our weekend together. 
 
Spread the word & SAVE the date!!! I'm SO EXCITED that this has worked out, and we can have the Beechwood Lodging & Meeting room that's in the same building! 

Thanks so much for your continued EXCITEMENT about these events together!! It's only because of EACH of YOU that we can make this happen...Wahoo!! ๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿ’›❤️๐Ÿ’œ
