Big Weekend a Big Success!

Hey Bloggerettes,

I want to thank all of the gals who attended the retreat at Nakoda Lodge this past weekend - it was great. The retreats get better and better every year thanks to the mix of attendees. This year we had some girls fly in from Coeur D'Alene, a group from central Alberta drove down, "the Myanna Show" of 15 or more, the "Honeybee" group of altered artists and all of my faithful regulars. Mike, Purcell, Lynn, Pat, Jess, Lucie, Karen and Marlene all deserve a big thank you for packing me up. The only casualty was the severe case of chapped lips, just like last year. I picked up some "Extreme-Stick" at Script Pharmacy - great stuff, highly recommend it.

Arriving this week at the "Yard" should be the Tim Holtz dies that we've all been waiting for. Watch for my posts on FACEBOOK for their arrival.

Have a great week - watch for a big announcement.
