Regrouping and Reflecting

20130424-054112.jpg

Thankfully the past few days have been at a slower pace for us and has offered some time to regroup and reflect.

The Creatives Retreat was everything I hoped for and more. The students in my classes were fun and fabulous. I truly enjoyed how they made each project their own while using my design. It was truly a unique experience to meet some Facebook friends in person and many of us giggled through the night into the wee hours of morning. Linda selected a gorgeous location in Lake Geneva and organized a smoothly run event.

It may take me a few more days to catch up on my sleep, but the memories I will treasure for a lifetime!

With our last dose of snow a few days ago, my kids track meets and golf meets have been cancelled through the rest of the week and weekend. That completes three full weeks of cancelations due to unusually late snowfall. We are hoping spring will appear soon! Our fingers and toes are crossed that we will reach the predicted 70 degree weather for the weekend. Yipppeeeee!

I am now gearing up production for the Olde Depot JUNKtion on Memorial Day weekend. I am super excited for this event and hope you can join us!

Have a fabulous day! 🙂 Kris

Hello Happy Day!

I am quite amazed that today is Thursday already… Summer days are slipping quickly by us.

In a few seasons, I am thrilled to be teaching with some pretty amazing women!

I would love to introduce you to my friend and fellow instructor at Creatives: Celebrating Sisterhood Retreat.

I am thrilled to be teaching four classes at this retreat!

Living in Minnesota offers such an amazing gift of the changing of the seasons. This year, the summer heat hit record highs across the country. I always try to preserve the summer moments, so as I climb into my frigid truck in below zero winter weather, I can warm myself up with happy memories!

I hope you store the summer joy and sunshine in your heart all year long!

🙂 Kris
