Believe it or not, it’s time to start planning for our Holiday Happenings Event (aka Christmas in July)! You’ve noticed that I’m changing the name because it’s been three years since we’ve actually gotten together in July to stamp our cards (she says sheepishly)
I spent last weekend at a wonderful scrapbook retreat in Big Bear Lake and it got me to thinking about making our Holiday Happenings Event an actual “getaway” rather than hosting it at the studio. The Bed & Breakfast we stayed at was great; so comfortable, plenty of room to stamp, lots of light, home-cooked delicious meals, and more. I think we would all have a blast together for the weekend…a mini creative vacation! My concern would be the weather (possible light snow) and the altitude for some of you.
The weekend dates available are September 2-4, September 16-18, and October 14-16 (subject to change)
I want and need to get your HONEST feedback on what the majority of you would prefer and be willing to commit to before I proceed any further.
Here are the options that I am considering:
- A two-night stay at a bed & breakfast in Big Bear at a cost of around $300 (based on double occupancy). Includes a cozy room, several to-die for meals, plenty of stamping room, snacks and drinks, plus gifts and prizes throughout the weekend.
- Open House at the Studio at a cost of approximately $30 per day. Includes plenty of stamping room, snacks and drinks, plus gifts and prizes throughout the day. (There is a hotel approximately 4 miles away if you don't want to drive back and forth each day.) Space is limited.
