      Calling all scrappers!! I am aware that there are a bunch of you who would love to attend camp but for various reasons cannot. I would like to put together a small retreat for 6-8 gals here in Michigan at this wonderful little cottage that is fully equipped for a weekend crop. It's not posh or fancy but the beds are clean and comfy, there are 2 full bathrooms, and there is enough cropping space for everyone.

      The cost for lodging for 6 is $78 Per person. That's Thursday night Friday night Saturday night and Sunday til 3.

      Food is extra. I'm thinking about $45 per person for food for the 4 days but this is just an estimate.

      THIS IS NOT SWIRLY CAMP! So there will be no goody bags or guest designers like what Krissy provides…but I may provide a super fun project/class/make and take if you would like.

      So….January 16-20 here in Michigan for $123 all inclusive.

      ****List of Attendees***
      1. Andie
      2. Kim
      3. Erin
      4. Peggy
      5. Meenu
      6. Laquette
      7.

Call me crazy, but I like that in a car."

                We have confirmation…the cottage is available!!!

                I need at least 5 gals to tell me yes…I'll invoice ya through paypal for $20 as a reservation because I have to pay the full amount when I call to reserve it. Then you can just pay me the balance when we get there.

                                Ok…Let me explain how this works:

                                In Michigan our 4 seasons are

                                Almost Winter
                                Winter
                                Still Winter
                                Road Construction

                                Now during road construction season you might have a few sunny days (with enough humidity to choke a camel) so during those days you don't want to be stuck inside even if you are stuck inside doing something that you love…like scrapbooking. Those bright sunny days are so rare that you set the scrapping aside and run and frolic in the grass (and swat at mosquitos) and sing like Julie Andrews.

                                However…in Winter…it can snow and sleet and blizard and outside is the most beautiful winter wonderland with ice crystals hanging off the trees like God's oaments made just for you. The snow gleams in the freezing sunlight and sparkles and dazzles. And while all this is going on outside you are inside snuggled in for 4 straight days of scrapping…where you wouldn't be caught dead outside anyway cuz it's too damn cold!

                                This, my dears, is why I much prefer retreats in the Michigan winter vs. the sunny road construction season.

                                So…buck up Kathi…get some pants…and haul your lil tushy up here in January! For Heaven's sake…I have a coat you can borrow.

Call me crazy, but I like that in a car."
