Chic n Scratch Retreat & More!


I want to start off by saying I'm sorry if I worried some of you!!! I forget that not everyone is on Facebook... my apologies and I appreciate your kind emails!!

I'm okay  ... this past weekend was my first Chic n Scratch Retreat .... the key word being the FIRST.

I planned on posting on my blog that it was starting and I was super excited  ....but ... time ran away from me.  Next year I will know what to expect and what to do  ... like maybe hire a couple more hands.  LOL!

Lane swerve for a minute .... 

Don't forget the Stamp, Stock & Save Special ends at midnight tonight.  Click here for more info.

The Retreat was an amazing experience and it was so nice meeting all the ladies!  I really can't put into words how lovely it was and how nice everyone was (I know I'm not supposed to end a sentence with was ... but if I delay this post any longer it won't get done today).   My business is 100% online and most of these ladies I've never met ... they honestly blew me away with their kindness!!!

On  my  Calendar ...

  • I will share some pictures  of the Retreat... soon!  The pictures I shared today were on my phone.
  • Get caught up on the 12 Weeks of Halloween.  
  • And for those of you asking about my 12 Weeks of Christmas ... this year we are doing the 12 Days of Christmas. (The 12 Weeks of Christmas always piggy backs on the Halloween series and I personally like doing the 12 Days for Christmas better.)
  • Online Classes (from the Retreat).

Over the next 3 or 4 days I'm also going to work only a few hours a day (the rest I'll be laying on the sofa resting).  Most of you know that I'm not a person that can do nothing for long .... so you can expect by next Monday I should be back to normal (if not before then).


Thanks & have a great day!!

p.s. I'll leave with you a couple Retreat pics.

    REST-REST-REST!!!!! Angie take the time for you now and do not do anything. Get a couple of movies and sit on your favorite chair and do NOTHING. You deserve it so much. Congratulations on your successful retreat–I am sure everyone left with a great smile on their pretty faces. Thank you for all you do. Have a good week.
