Wow did we have fun! Session 1 of the Blossoms ‘n Bling Spring Crafters Retreat was a huge success from beginning to end. The excitement and energy was amazing. I don’t want to show you all the details just yet as we still want to surprise our guests at the second session next week but here are some photos that I can share. We had several gift bundles of Stampin’ Up! supplies and gifts donated from local business that were raffled off and all of the proceeds are being donated to Michigan Special Olympics.

The Flurries ‘n Fun winter retreat last month was just so much fun and I’m now on a plane getting back to my craft room to start designing for our next retreat.  Blossoms ‘n Bling Spring Retreats.  Now of course I can’t show you what I’ll be making because that would certainly spoil the surprise for everyone but I can share with you what everyone enjoyed at the last one.

We made it very easy for each guest to find their table with this super adorable tea pot that we had at each place setting.  Wonder how it was made?   Check back and I will have a video for you!

 

Now if you haven’t been to one of our retreats you may not know this but there are times when you return to your table after a meal or in the morning you will find a surprise.  We like to call them Pillow Gifts.  I know there isn’t a pillow to put them on but you can imagine that there is. ;-)

 

  

We created this tea pot by starting out with the Petite Purse Die and a couple of circle punches.  Can you guess how the rest is made?

Would you like to be pampered all weekend and receive several of these fun Pillow Gifts?  Join us at one of our Blossoms ‘n Bling Spring Retreats in April.

Happy Valentine’s Day! I love Valentine’s day, pun intended. It is just always such a magical day when everyone is super nice to one another. And it also means we are getting pretty close to spring.

I want to share with you one of the stamps from the Best of Love stamp set that is part of the Best of 25 Years collectors series. Best of Love Read My Lips

Each guest will be pampered from the time you arrive until you so sadly have to return home.

 

Here are some great photos from our last event.

We were all ready for everyone with a special goody bag.

They make a great team!
