When we go on our retreats, we can arrive on Friday late morning and start working on whatever we want. Even though it's commonly called a "scrapbooking retreat", you can do anything you want all weekend. Sometimes ladies knit, crochet, paint, read, play on their computer and even sleep all day. The point is, YOU can do what YOU want. No housework, no cooking, no laundry, no kids, no husbands. It's heaven! Our next retreat is scheduled for October 12-14, 2012 so if you want to go, you better get in touch with me and reserve your spot.
If you were with me this weekend, you know that my daughter was participating in the BIG D.I. competition on Saturday. Someone asked me to post the results so, here we go. Awards were handed out on Sunday. Our team scored 2nd place for their grade/age group and category. They were only 5 points away from First Place. While they didn't score First, they still might be able to go to State Competition in Corpus Christi in April. Whether they go or not, will depend on how other teams throughout Texas do next weekend in their competitions. This is a photo of my daughter's team. They're really a bunch of comedians but they tried their acting talents at drama. Their skit was a "movie trailer" that had Hades battling the current world.
My daughter is the middle girl dressed in black. We're all very proud of them and their accomplishment this year.
Back to the retreat, here are some more fun photos of projects and artists at work!
Shelly working on her scrapbook pages.
Gorgeous wedding photos getting put into Lisa's scrapbook.
We all like to walk around to see what everyone else is doing.
Our wonderful hostess, Gina. She's beat this Sunday afternoon. She's worked all weekend taking care of us 20 ladies.
Linda's gorgeous creations.
This is Barbara's first "real" quilt. The fabric was yummy and the pattern delicious. I love it so much I could eat it!
Beautiful quilt, Linda!
An adorable christmas page. The reindeer looked like Scooby Doo with antlers. You can't see it very good but, there is green fuzzy yarn tangled up in his antlers. It looks like greenery.
Tricia and Sandi are admiring Jackie's scrapbook.
I hope you can "retreat" with us next October!
