I am so excited about our next Christmas in July Retreat!  Not only are we doing Christmas in July, I figured I would one up it and go with Santa's Sweet Shoppe as the theme.  I love the colors, fun decorating ideas and since I have a whole year to plan, it is going to be FABULOUS!

If you have never been to one of our Retreat's, you are in for a fun surprise.  Imagine two days of creating cards, making new friends and a whole heck of a lot of laughs!  I haven't firmed up ALL the details yet, but they will be coming on down the pipeline as I get them all sorted.

But what do you say we go through a few little Questions and Answers that I have been asked in the past.

Why do you need RSVP's and Registration by December 1st?
Putting together one of these retreats is time consuming to say the least!  I need to purchase everyone's supplies, my mom needs time to make the Bunky Bags and there is a ton of logistical planning that needs to be done AFTER we have a final head count.  Having the final count by December 1st is essential to ensuring that we have enough goodies for everyone who would like to be involved.

How much is the Registration Fee?
We do ask that you pay for half of the class by December 1st, in this case $37.50.

Is the Registration Fee refundable?
No, it is not.  However, let's say that you pay for the Retreat in full and last minute you can not come to the Retreat.  It's ok, actually!  I will be more than happy to send out all of your cards, keep your name in for the prizes AND you will still get your Bunky Bag full of goodies.  As long as you pay for the class in full.

What does the $75 pay for?
The $75 pays for the 20 cards, your Bunky Bag full of supplies and the food we have at the Retreat.  It does not pay for any excursions or extra activities that may take place during the Retreat weekend.  You will also be responsible for any travel expenses and hotels while you are in town.  I will be sending out recommendations for places to stay if you are coming in from out of town.

Why is it limited to 20 people?
There are a few factors that led me to this decision and the biggest one is FUN.  I want everyone to have a great time, I want to be able to help when needed, I want it to be manageable and not over whelming for anyone.   20 seems to be the perfect number of spots to help with the flow of the cards.

Will we be able to see the cards before the Retreat?
YES YOU WILL!!!   I love making the cards for the Retreat and sometimes they take a while to put together, because I am picky!  I want to have a splattering of different styles and difficulty levels.  I want to have quick and easy cards, cards that will challenge you and different techniques that you can learn while you are here.  Those take some time coming up with, but I do try to have 75% of them completed before December and the registration deadline.

Will there be anything different this Retreat from the previous Retreats?
OH MY GOD, YES!   Here is one quick fun surprise for you to start chewing on.  With having the stamp company, YOU are going to be able to create YOUR VERY OWN CUSTOMIZED card sentiment to use for your Christmas cards!!!!   How fabulous is THAT?!   And because I have had an over abundance of Coke today I am even going to go all wild and crazy and say that we will also be having a fun contest and the winner of that contest will get a special stamp set that will include a copy of everyone's sentiment!  Woo hoo!!!!!

If you would like to register for the 2015 Christmas in July Retreat, please feel free to do so!  You will be prompted to pay the $37.50 Registration Fee and this will lock you into your slot!


If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask!

Happy Stamping!
