Today is the last day to RSVP! This is a great opportunity to check out the new catalog, new stamp sets and accessories, and enjoy a weekend of fun stamping!
There will be a social distancing compliant stamp station set up where you can come pick up your retreat box, stamp whatever you need for your classes and kick the retreat off with a little excitement! I will have some products on display, and some small card displays too.
You can pay via PayPal to or email me a check. But, be sure to RSVP and hold your spot.

Don't have the stamps we're using for our Retreat in a Box? Don't worry! There will be a "social distance compliant stamp station" available when you pick up your retreat boxes. If you don't have the stamp sets we are using for classes, I will schedule a time that's convenient for both of us, for you to pick up your retreat box and stamp your card pieces.

I absolutely love the new catalog, and I know you will too.  We're doing a retreat in a box from June 5 to June 7. 
I hope you can join the fun!


Finally learning about Google Docs--how to make them and how to share them.
I am super excited to share with you what will be happening virtually (via FaceBook and/or the Zoom Rubber Room) during the next few months. Because these events are virtual, there's no need to live close or "bend" the social gathering rules in place. It's an awesome way to see some smiling faces and get creative.

Please print these pages, put them somewhere you will see them often and RSVP for some fun!
