Kim here today with a twist on our WHERE YOU CREATE feature. It’s time to get organized on the move! Let’s go to a retreat!
I tried desperately to post this feature last weekend while at a retreat; but alas I failed! The wifi at our retreat was at best unreliable and well honestly, my brain was squirrelling every minute into conversations and laughs with the wonderful group of people I was spending my time with! Trust me…there are way worse evils in the world than what was my dilemma!
BIG PHOTO SHARE
So today, we will have a big photo share. A share of how “my peeps” pack and lug all of their scrapbooking supplies to a retreat. THIS is real life! Some are very organized, some are very random and some…well, bring everything but the kitchen sink! I “hang” with some incredibly talented people, so I figure if it works for them…it just might work for you too!
Let’s go retreating!
WHY I LOVE RETREATS
Retreats are a wonderful way to break from the stresses of daily to-dos. I personally find a weekend away with people near and dear to my heart energizes me. We laugh until our faces hurt and sometimes we cry because our friends are hurting. We need this release in a safe place, with people we love. I drove home from this retreat smiling as I thought of our silly shenanigans. I’m certain I have banked enough happy to last while…and if not, these friends are a text, email or call away! They are my life coaches!
GRAB SOME FRIENDS
In closing…grab some friends and book a retreat! Be sure to take a copy of Creative Scrapbooker Magazine‘s winter issue, you may want to “scrap-lift” some ideas if your brain squirrels like mine!
Love it! Great article!
I love retreats too, and seen all of the packers you’ve described lol
It’s so important to make that crafty time together away from everything else. I myself would be the organized minimalist 🙂
Hi Kim, what a great article. I just went to my first crop and I just loved every minute. Three days of fun, frolic and no commitments. I was amazed by the amount of “stuff” the ladies hauled to their three day getaway!! But once I was there for a day I realized why all that “stuff” is necessary 🙂 I guess the thing I noticed most was the welcoming atmosphere of the event and the open acceptance the ladies exuded to a fellow scrapbooker. You could certainly feel the love and new friendships were made. I can’t wait to a attend another crop retreat.
hey I resemble that! That’s not a mixer but a KitchenAid one cup coffee maker and some french roast coffee beans. A scrapbooker can’t run out of good coffee!! <3
Great ideas! I don’t want to be the gal who brings everything from my basement scrap area – but I always am! Thanks for the “travel tips”!
I agree, wine and treats while scrapbooking go well together.
I love everything about this post! I am amazed by the amount of stuff some of your friends brought! I realize each and every item is important, but when you showed the Raskog, I was thinking, “my word! They packed furniture!” I would love to know more about the tealish colored caddy that was attached to the table. I could see it is made by Tonic. I am on a mission! Thank you so much for sharing so many pictures. They really do help tell this story!
