Retreat Recovery in Full Swing

Phew! Everyone is resting up a bit following our October Retreat. We all had such a wonderful time . . .

It was magical.


I'm not exactly sure what Brenda put inside this box, but whatever it was really worked.

On Thursday, our very own Deb and Beth worked like crazy to pack everything up for our long weekend. Here they are after the finishing touches had been completed in the Pro Shop and the evening workshop room. They look fresh as a daisy, even after the countless hours they'd worked!


We hauled a lot of stuff into that hotel. Big boxes filled with gifts.


And more gifts.


We enjoyed some awesome workshops together filled with lots of creativity and some serious concentration.



And we laughed. Lots. (Here, Brenda takes a swig from the funnel on top of the mega-sized jug of Bookbinding Glue. Tasty.)


After four wonderful days together, we packed everything up on Sunday and got to spend the afternoon watching the Packers (or insert favorite NFL team here) with dear family and friends.


If it looks like we're a bit tired, it's because we are. But that's okay. It was worth every bit of energy and effort to enjoy this amazing time with you.

It's pretty quiet here at Club Scrap today. Just the sound of Beth carefully packing up your Retreat purchases and sending them your way.

If you didn't get a chance to come to Wisconsin this year, consider picking up one of the last Retreat In a Box kits available. We're shipping all of the fun to your door on Thursday!

Time to make big plans for 2014. See you next year. :)

  3. Thank you so very much for a stellar retreat Tricia! It was awesome to spend a little bit of quieter 'wind down' time with you and Cliff in your awesome 3-season room. I'm holding memories from several past retreats in my heart but I truly think the memories from this one will be some of those I hold closest. Hugs to you and everyone at CSHQ. I miss you all already.
