Everyone at the retreat had a spot in the basement that they set up to work on their crafting projects.  Here are some pictures –


Here we are on Friday night – everyone has their spot set up to stay busy for the weekend.  The Make&Takes were set up in a different space so that whatever project you were working on you could just leave it and come back to it.  I think it worked out really well.

work tableThe tables are covered with projects – I even see a Paper Pumpkin box!  My April kit came last week right before the retreat started – I think Kim brought hers too.  Let’s see what else do I spy – well Stampin’ Up! box – and some of our Make&Take projects.   I’m going to share those in another post later this week.

On Day 1 (Friday) everyone arrived late in the afternoon and set up their spots in the basement.  We had dinner, one stamping session, then crafting time in the basement.  Cupcakes for dessert and a late night popcorn snack.  Those that spent the night go their beds set up, some were up stairs in the boys bedrooms (Kyle is away at college and Ryan went to stay at a friends house), and some stayed in the basement on the pull-out sofa.  And some people went back home for the night.

Fun times.
