Special Things about the Ladies Retreat Weekend

Whew!  It's Wednesday and I am still reveling in the special energy from the Ladies Retreat Weekend.  I don't know how to explain it.  It's just the special feeling of camaraderie that comes from spending a weekend crafting with great ladies that gives me a smile long after the weekend is over.

I thought I would share some more photos from the weekend.  Also, one of the special perks of the weekend is that the ladies receive tutorials of the make n takes and also of any special pillow gifts throughout the weekend.

This cookie holder was one of the gifts I gave to the ladies during the weekend.  It holds Dad's cookies perfectly.  I got the original idea from something I saw from another demonstrator,Erica Cerwin.  I had to adapt the measurements so that it worked for these dad's cookies but the idea is the same.

Hope today's Watch it Wednesday Video inspires you to create some treat packets like this one!

Melissa had a great activity where everyone could write how they feel when they craft on the back of an ornament and we hung it on the tree.  It was a great reminder of how crafting is healthy therapy! 

Gotta have a special photo memory!
