One Day Crafting Retreat

Finally!!!  I have been wanting to do a post to show the fun we had at our One Day Retreat last month, and I'm finally getting a chance to sit down and do it!!

Life is just like that sometimes..... never enough time to do it all :).

Here's a peak at each person's table setting before they arrived.....

They each received a pack of the Festive Farmhouse Designer Series Paper, the Metallic Pearls, Striped Burlap Ribbon and Festive Farmhouse Elements.

Metallic Pearls  146282

Striped Burlap Ribbon  147889

Festive Farmhouse Elements  147890

I love to make these cute name plates for each person....

Of course, I have to use some of the products from their goody bag on their name plates..... like the Festive Farmhouse Designer Series Paper and Striped Burlap Ribbon.

I also used the Corrugated Embossing Folder, Galvanized Clips and Basic Black Baker's Twine.

And....  I had to decorate some of the goody bag items.....

I put a fun tag on the Striped Burlap Ribbon.  I used the Sincerely Santa Stamp Set, Festive Farmhouse Cotton Twine and Layering Circle Framelits for the tag.

I always have to give a sweet "something" to each person as well :).

I actually demonstrated how to make these fun "diaper-fold" treats on a recent Facebook Live.

After lunch, each person received another fun treat......

This time, I wrapped a Nutty Butty bar with the Festive Farmhouse Designer Series Paper and the Striped Burlap Ribbon.  I added the "Thankful" tag using the Falling for Leaves Stamp Set and the Triple Banner Punch and then added a few Gold Metallic Pearls to the tag.

Here's a closer look at all of the treats together.....

Here's a peak at some of the tables set up for the day.  You have LOTS of room to spread out and really good lighting all day long.

I always set up my retired product on a few tables to do a Buy One, Get One Free Sale.....

Many times.... if someone has forgotten to bring something, they can shop at the BOGO tables and find what they need!

I also bring all of my current Stampin' Up! supplies that they can use all day long....

And.... of course, we have to do a raffle drawing as well!!   It's always fun to win new product :).

I hope you enjoyed these pictures!!!

Hopefully, next time, I'll remember to actually take pics of people crafting throughout the day, too!
