Retreat Reflections

A week ago, I was heading to Green Bay, WI for the start of Club Scrap's annual August Retreat. Now I'm back home and I've just gotta tell you a little bit about it. I can't say too much, 'cuz there is always a Pinkie Swear involved - can't spoil the fun for the folks who are attending in October or those getting the RIAB (Retreat in a Box), but there are a few things I can share…

Here's Tricia with...well, that's not really important!
This photo has nothing to do with Retreat, but it was taken that weekend!
First of all, it was definitely one of the most amazing weekends I've ever experienced - you could just feel the excitement in the air! Everyone was smiling and laughing and hugging during registration - that's such a fun part of Retreat - if you hang around long enough (or actually get to work there selling uber-cool logo stuff!), you eventually see/meet/hug every person there!

And the workshops - oh my goodness - I've been to 2 retreats in the past, and got the RIAB in 2009, but let me tell you, these projects are absolutely amazing! And one of the workshops this year is just so very different and fun! What a great collection of projects and inspiration. Then there's this year's retreat kit - so very beautiful - and other gifts scattered throughout the weekend - such cool stuff that EVERYONE enjoyed! I lost count of the "Ooos" and "Aahhs" I heard in the course of the weekend.

And the coolest thing happened on Sunday morning at brunch - I was chatting with a few women who told me that they're trying to see if they can come back in October! How cool is that?!? I totally expect to see them there in 55 days!

Yeah, that's right, it's just 55 days until the October Retreat! And I'm so happy that I'll be back in Wisconsin again! I've said this before, and I'm gonna say it again - if there's any way that you can possibly go to Retreat this year, call Club Scrap® or go to their website and get yourself registered. You won't be sorry!


  1. You know I would Ron! BIG HUGS and so glad we live close enough so that I can give you one of those CS HUGS in person!

  4. As you all know, I'm looking forward to it!!!

  5. Funny you should say that some were talking about coming back in October! I was actually thinking about it!

    What a fabulous experience!!!

  6. I do miss going to the October Retreats and I am waiting patiently for the RIAB.
