Are You Ready?

I know I am! I need a getaway so badly! And how much fun to have one with a bunch of scrapbookers!!!!

As I got out of bed this morning, bedhead and all, I stumbled into my living room, grabbing a cup of coffee along the way and sat down at my computer. I looked over to my dining table and reality hit me... as I saw all of the boxes and bags and "retreat stuff" all neatly packed and stacked on and around the table, it really hit me... IT'S THIS WEEK! All of this planning and preparing is about to come to fruition! And I really realized... I AM SO READY!

I also thought of something else... this is mainly for you REPEAT RETREATERS... at least those who were at my retreat last fall at Heit's Point. We were so nice and secluded there. No one else around except the cooks and Delbert. So, we were able to do exactly what I did this morning... get out of bed, bedhead and all, stumbled to my computer and ALL IN MY PJ'S!

Now, I'm not saying you CAN'T wear your PJ's all day... oh, no... you do what you want... I'm just saying... we will be in a HOTEL in BRANSON this time. The odds that there will be people around are pretty high! Almost guaranteed! SO... all I'm saying is... keep that in mind! We may even have to share the conference center with someone... It's huge and we are using less than half of it!

SO... dress as you want... I don't care. Just don't be SHOCKED if you run into people out and about! WE WILL NOT BE ALONE!!!!

And one last thing... since we are SO close, there will be no more CROP CASH opportunities here or by email... we are WAY to close to try to keep up with it. HOWEVER... there will be many, many CROP CASH opportunites starting at 1 pm on Thursday and going throughout the retreat... at least right up to the last auction at 7pm on Saturday!

I hope you all have enjoyed the CROP CASH opportunity fun! I hope it's kept everyone engaged and excited.

Keep watching this blog as I may still post here. Be safe in your travels, call or email me if you have any last minute questions and I will see you all in a couple of days!


  1. Sounds like you are really ready for this event! We are all so excited too and looking forward to it. This is also a getaway that I need very badly. I know I will come home tired, but It will feel so good. I hope I can accomplish a lot and if I don't, I know I will have had a lot of fun.


  2. I have started packing up my scrapping stuff and I am currently downloading some "dormant" pictures that have been patiently waiting to be printed for quite some time. Walgreens will be making some money from me this week! I do plan on wearing some really comfortable clothes and I always get a new pair of houseshoes when I go to my annual crop-a-thon wherever it may be. I am getting excited!
