2019 Ladies Fall Crafting Retreat
Enjoy a fun filled weekend of crafting and relaxation at A Picture Perfect Place! Where else are you going to be able to get 3 or 4 days of uninterrupted time to work on your crafting projects?
This weekend begins at 11:00 am on Friday, August 30th and continues through Monday, September 2nd at 4:00 pm. The crop room is large and spacious with seating for 12 guests. You will each have an individual 2 X 4 foot table with a lamp and a comfy adjustable executive style chair. At each table, we provide a beverage holder, a trash can and light. Once you've unpacked, you can leave everything out until it is time to leave on Monday.
I will have some Close to My Heart cardstock, paper, kits, and other supplies available for you to purchase, as well as the latest catalog for you to order from.
The crafting area has multiple tools for your use and convenience during your stay. There is a Bluetooth speaker, CD player/sound system, docking station, as well as a flat screen TV with a Blue-Ray/DVD player right in the crop room.
Their "TOOL BOX" consists of High-Speed Wireless Internet Access, The Honor Shoppe, Cricut Expressions Personal Cutting System ( you'll need to bring your own mat & cartridges), Sizzix® die cut machine with Shadowbox alphabet & numbers, QuicKutz® personal die cutting system with multiple decorative alphabets, Large paper cutter (18” X 15”), Decorative scissors, punches & stamps, “Scrap-pile” for when you just need some odds-n-ends pieces of paper, a large variety of idea books and instructional magazines, and a large "Design Wall" for the quilter's, as well as ironing table & iron.
Of course you are welcome to bring any additional tools you may have!
I will be offering some fun workshops featuring our amazing Close to My Heart papers and products throughout the weekend. Each workshop will feature a new technique that you can use on your future crafting projects. These workshops are optional and will not be included in the registration cost. As we draw closer to the event, I will be sending an email showcasing the workshops available as well as the cost for each workshop. This will allowing you to see what projects are available and give you the option to reserve your kit(s) for the weekend workshops.
At this time, I am planning a scrapbook layout, a card, a home decor item, and a Cricut class. If you have an suggestions for items you wish to make or techniques you want to learn, please let me know.

When you need a break from your crafting, or you just want to relax and visit with a friend, you can sit by the awesome stone fireplace or get lost in the magnificent view of Longs Peak from their wall of windows. If you’re in the mood for some entertainment, there are two televisions with DVD players for some movie watching. If you are more of an outdoors type of person they have a beautiful front patio with a porch swing that just begs to be sat in, plus there are some great walking areas if you want to get out and stretch your legs.
