Just over a month to go............RETREAT!!!!

Hi all....................what a busy time it seems to be for all of us!!!  I don't know where the time is marching away to, but its gone.....and left me behind I might add....certainly feels that way!

Just asking quickly if you could please let me know if you are wanting to attend our 2016 retreat.  We really need to have your deposits paid by next week if that's possible please. 
we are so looking forward to seeing you for our November Retreat....if you have given an expression of interest but have not paid your deposit yet can I please ask that you do that in the next few days - we will be needing to purchase food and pay a deposit shortly - really isn't long to go now....just over a month!!! 
On the subject of food: if you have any allergy's, dislikes or things you would like included please send me an email to so we are aware when purchasing and making food.  We don't want to have somebody sick or unable to eat what we are serving up at retreat.....that ruins it for them and also the rest of us!!! 
We will also have our normal specials running:
  • La Carta card stock @ 5 for $2:00 (mixed colours are fine)
  • crafting packs @ $5:00 - $10:00 - $20:00 & $35:00
  • left over bits a pieces from long gone ranges @ prices as marked
  • selected Patterned papers @ .50 cents per sheet
  • Glitter papers (last of the range) @ $1:50
  • Selected Glitz Design products @ marked prices :)

It's been a while since we actually had a retreat - a couple of my friends suggested that we needed to have one.......this year!!!  Ever happy to oblige we said yes...........and we are happy to announce that our 2016 retreat will be held in November on the weekend of the 18th, 19th, and 20th!!  We are also going to a new venue..........

Rusty Springs

We are sure you are going to love it!  The rooms are set up to to accommodate a couple as most have a queen sized bed; however there are a couple of rooms with either 2 singles or a queen and a single.  if you look on the website you will notice that the ROOMS are $100 per night, its not per person, so if you are sharing that is $50 each.  So if you have your own room, the retreat will cost you $250 but if you share, then the retreat will cost you $150!  Now that is a pretty good deal.......BUT you need to be quick as there are only a few rooms, unless you are happy to share a queen bed, that accommodate 2 per room!  It is first in best dressed when I get the payment schedule up for you - you need to put that you require a room that accommodates 2 if you want to share, in the notes section of the invoice please.

 We will put up a payment plan for you, please be aware that if you are paying by paypal instead of bank deposit that it will be a higher cost as the fees eat into the money.  I'm unsure about classes, this will have to wait until closer to time.  See below for a rundown on the retreat:
  • DATES: 18th - 20th November 2016 
  • Classes ???
  • COST:
    • Single $250 per person
    • Twin share $150 per person
  • VENUE:
    • Rusty Springs 28 Hovell St, Avenel VIC 3664, Australia
