Phew! I think that I am back to reality!








I just came home from the most fun, creative weekend! I spent the past weekend in Northern Wisconsin with so many talented and beautiful women! I had so much creative juices flowing.

I was picking up mojo from left and right! I took a few classes - learned how to solder jewelry (which is *SO* much fun....learned how to make these adorable playing card pocket books....


I also taught some digital scrapbooking to my friends. It was fun to teach my friends some of the secrets which I have taught myself over the past few years.

The retreat was refreshing for my soul! I haven't laughed so hard in years. Did you ever laugh so hard - that you could just look at the people and know they were thinking the same exact thing! Then you burst into tears and fits of laughter. IMAGINE 4 DAYS OF THAT!


I have to thank my beautiful and talented friend Pine and my friend HB for making all the retreat arrangements and HB cooked and planned the wonderful food! The most exciting part of the weekend was when Pine's stamp set was released on Papertrey Ink! We were sipping champagne. She even signed my copy of the stamp set! IMADORK, I KNOW! But I am so proud of her!!!

There was so many wonderful memories....here are just a few of my favorites....
