Craft Your Christmas Retreat

"Craft Your Christmas" Retreat
I'm so excited to announce my
Eighth Annual "Craft Your Christmas" Retreat!
As many of you, my dear customers and friends know, I look forward to planning and welcoming so many to my annual retreat! We always have so much fun staying at the hotel, eating our meals together, and doing tons of stamping and crafting together to get ready for the holidays!
So when Covid hit, I thought it would be over quickly, and we would be able to meet again at the DoubleTree Inn~ our favorite spot~ in October.
But of course, that was not to be. My heart was so sad to think that this would be the year we did not have a retreat.
BUT! I have decided to bring the retreat to you online! We will stamp, and craft, and eat, play games, have door prizes, and "pillow gifts" and do lots of the fun things we do at the hotel~
from your home!
The retreat will be held on Zoom, and all the sessions will be recorded
so you can review them if needed.
The dates are:
Friday evening, November 20,
Saturday, November 21, (with lots of breaks) and
Sunday, November 22 (one last session) .
I know that in the past there have been many of you that have wanted to come to the retreat but have hesitated because of the cost of the hotel.
Well... this is your year!
You can enjoy the retreat but
still sleep in your own bed! YAY!
I am SO EXCITED about this!
I'm working on the projects now, and will have lots more details early next week.. so watch your inbox!
And save the dates!

We had our first ZOOM Bingo in July. 
Want to hear what those who came thought about it?
Here's what Esther had to say:
"Hey Ruth! What a fun class. This was my first bingo. It was a blast! The cards are so beautiful. The color combination is so cool and soothing. I like the layering of colors. The stamp set is so versatile and beautiful. So so glad I joined you today."
Nancy wrote:
"I thoroughly enjoyed Bingo. I had fun playing the six Bingo games and putting the make-and-take cards together. Thanks for being willing to take a chance with Bingo via Zoom. You made it more fun, of course."
Susan had a great time!
"Leave it to Ruth to figure out how to make the best of a difficult time! BINGO is always a really fun time - food, card making and games! Oh, and great prizes and Prize Patrol goodies too! Now we tried Zoom BINGO and had a great time as well! Ruth provides everything needed (a lot more work for her preparing for virtual gatherings) and the cards we made are beautiful ♥♥♥ ....Thank you Ruth for a wonderful time!"
It was Kim's first Bingo!
"Zoom Bingo with Ruth and all the other ladies was so much fun! Prizes, swag bag, cards, crafting...
a great way to spend an afternoon!"
Beth had so much fun!
"Well, I just marked my calendar for Holiday Bingo on September 19th!! I loved Zoom Bingo!!! It was so much fun. I love the swag bag gifts I got to pick out and I love the cards we made after playing Bingo. A most enjoyable way to spend a morning! Thank you!!"
And here's what Flossie wanted to say:
"Do your endorphins need a boost? 
Do you feel you need a change?  Are you thinking . . . 
Take Me Away?
Includes Bingo, Prizes, a Swag Bag, Prize Patrols, a Stamping craft session, laughter and camaraderie.
Another plus . . . you can wear your comfy PJ bottoms and no shoes! 
Add M&Ms! for a perfect stay - at- home, feel good endorphin booster."  
We had so much fun getting together on Zoom and playing Bingo, winning prizes, and making our cards!
