Ok, girls.
Pop your ideas about what you would like to do at the weekend in here, so they don't get lost. If we have lots of different things that would make it impossible to do all, I will put a poll up, but at the mo, I get the sense that we're all pretty much on the same wavelength. WHAT TO DO???? 298664

I thought that maybe we could use the first day for techniques. If any of us have a skill that somebody else would like to learn, then we could show them. So, it would be like mini-classes and not set in stone to a timetable. So if there is anything you'd like to see, shout out. If there's nothing you want to learn, then you can do as you please. WHAT TO DO???? Icon_smile Also, start some challenges.

The second day would be a 'crop' type day. Craft and natter - anything you want. Also finish the challenges.

I'm sure there will be a few little prizes in the offing. WHAT TO DO???? Icon_wink

Also, decide if you want to do a swap of some kind too. ATC's, mini books, etc. We could, if you wanted, do a retreat CJ, but bear in mind that by then I'M SURE that the main 2010 CJ will be underway and we don't want any more stressing out about that, do we? WHAT TO DO???? Icon_wink WHAT TO DO???? 298664

Suggestions:

Scrap page swap.
Card kit swap.
Alcohol inks.
Personalized Twinchie Swap.
Image swap.
Promarkers.
Bookbinding (making)
Using Distress Inks.

that sounds great to me, one day techniques and one day cropping.

a while back someone suggested a scrap page swap and the problem was sending 12x12s though the post, well what about doing something like that here - those that want to do it give x photos up (copies in case you dont like the results)and we scrap each others... it would be more fun if the person gave photos of themsleves as none of us seem to like scrapping oursleves. Or if prefffered the photos could be sent in advance and participants could bring the finished article to the retreat to reunite it with its owner(after making a display of them)

just an idea. I dont care what we do.... I'd love to learn things too though.

Swapping photos sounds a good idea Maria.
I really don't mind what I do. I am just going to be so happy to be there.
My main reason for going is to meet everyone and get to know you all.

I'm with Steph not being all that fussed with what we do.

Could be fun to find something none of us have done before like the candle decorating last year. Though not sure what..... lol

How about personalized "twinchie" swap, all do however many twinchies with maybe a little picture of ourselves on it (and I mean little lol) & decorate in our own style, then share them out & then all do our own thing with them like our last twinchie swap. If anyway likes that idea I'll host it & keep track of it all.

I like the idea a few of you have mentioned of doing lots of bits and pieces: it means that people who don't want to do one specific thing won't be keeping themselves amused for very long before the next one comes along.

Something occurs to me with your idea of techniques, Lou, and your post about equipment: if several people bring a certain piece of equipment, then each of them could take just a couple of people who want to learn how to use it and show them. A lot easier than trying to tell 12 people at once.

I'd like to do something with alcohol
...inks, not much experience there.
Having a record of who's who of some kind would be great.
Some sort of swap would be fun.
I 'll be happy with anything there is on offer, a yarn and getting a bit messy, I'll be happy.

Awwwwww shucks Embarassed

Thrifty - I could do with another refresher session on alcohol.............. inks Mr Green I remember last year Lou saying that whenever you play with them dont expect to ever get the same result/effect, except I seem to only be able to do the one over & over again lol!

I can bring a Pink Chocolate cake Mr Green though wouldnt suggest eating it if your diabetic... or have health issues... watching your weight... actually it could probably topple our resident athlete Patty lol!

I'm happy with whatever there is too but could do with some stamping and how to get the colouring effects you do with your Promarkers etc as I'm not very good with stamping.

I like Marias photo swap Idea for the scrappers, maybe the cardies could do a kit swap and make cards while we're cropping.
The pics could come with a likey list and a please don't list, like cj's do.
