Crafting in Style! We Tried Out a New Retreat...

The last week of March we tried out a new retreat that just opened last Fall.  WOW! I love it!  It's called Moments Retreat Center and it's in Lake Dallas, TX.  My downline, Becky, found this one for us and we had the whole craft studio to ourselves (5 of us) for the whole weekend starting on Thursday.

Here's a couple of photos of the studio.  See all my tote bags and card stock crates.  I took these photos after I packed up to leave.

We have a tool sign up list that I made for the last retreat we tried so we can try not to all bring duplicate tools.  I brought all the punches.  It pretty much covered an entire table that someone would have used if other crafters were there.  I guess in the future, we'll need some folding tables to put tools on.

A sink and a mini fridge right in the studio was awesome!

The house is beautiful!  I wish my house was decorated this nicely.  Here's some photos of our room and the house...we stayed in the Master Suite which was called the Ruby Room.  I wish I had taken a photo before we messed up our beds, but all the rooms are beautiful!

We laughed, talked, watched movies, listened to classic rock, and created lots of fun stuff.  I can't wait to go to this one again.  Plus, the location is just 30 minutes from my house.

One of my projects was this banner I made with my Sale.a.bration Heartfelt Banner kit.  I photographed it on her fireplace 'cause, well, look how nice it looks there!  I currently have it hanging over the blinds in my craft room.

Here's what our stuff looked like after we took over the tables, lol.

BTW, I have a craft show this Saturday at Faithbridge Presbyterian Church in Frisco at College and Hillcrest Rd.  And, also be looking out for the retired list which posts on April 21st!

Happy Stampin'


  1. I am curious much is it per day? I might have to look into this for some of our demonstrators to use and do the same thing? Thanks, Debbie Neuman.
