I was totally unprepared for this retreat that I'm on. I think I was a little down because it is the last retreat that my store is hosting. It's somewhat bittersweet because to be honest, I'm burned out (as is my "partner" who has been lead "camp girl" longer than I've been co-host). It's a lot of work and we've been doing it together, twice a year, for 4 (?) years now.
So, I came with a buncha stuff, but no real plan. I have kits made up from previous retreats... haven't touched 'em. What have I been doing?
Well, I have been keeping busy. I have been chatting with the other scrappers, eating at the Amish restaurant, shopping, browsing Amish goods (too expensive for me) using Stickles on practically everything, watching a ton of movies, taking photos of the gorgeous hotel and, so far, teaching one class.
Oh, and I have puttered around with my scrap stuff a little. I've made a few Christmas/holiday cards. I've just been picking out a few things to play with... flocked paper, crackle paint, Stickles (did I mention that before?), ribbon, stamps, Cuttlebug embossing... and I've made a whopping (sit down before I take your breath away) eleven cards so far.
Here are a few as proof that I did get crafty over the past few days:
