The weekend is both exhausting and exhilarating. You are so overstimulated that you don't get a lot done. But, you do create some of your best work, spurred by the lure of contests and prizes. Nobody loves free stuff more than my friend Crafty Girl. So, everytime a raffle winner was announced, she'd mouth her name, hoping it would bring her luck.
The grande prize is a free retreat in the future. We've so longed for that prize. But, we'll take anything really. Games have included crafty versions of plinko, wheel of fortune, and bingo. I was lucky enough to win a small prize. But, the major giveaways eluded us this year.
We did get three meals, two late night dessert snacks, chair massages, make-n-takes, classes, and great company. We'll be showing you some of what we made and saw at the retreat in the coming days. For now, we both need to catch up on some sleep before our scrapbooking days are over.
