Righty ho, girls. Here's the plan for the weekend. Mr Green

It's not as structured as the previous retreats so should be plenty of time to do your 'own thing' too.
I will be posting up an 'essential supplies' list soon for the things you will need if you want to do the classes and challenges. If you don't have or can't get all the supplies needed, don't worry. I'm sure between us we'll manage. Mr Green

Friday evening.....meet and get legless. Wink

Saturday.....start 9.30. (allowing time for a good brekkie and getting over a slight hangover)
I will do the Bookbinding class first as this will take most of the morning.
Lunch 12.30 - 1.30
After lunch I'll go through the Alcohol Inks again and Distress Inks. These won't take too long, so will be plenty of the afternoon left to decorate your book, start the challenges or anything else you want to do.

Dinner....all meet in Taybarns at 7.30.

Sunday.....finish the challenges and swaps and do whatever else you want. Also, if anybody wants to know about any other technique and anybody wants to 'teach' we can do that too.

Swaps.
LO photo swap.....bring a photo and swap with somebody else to do a LO for you.
Card Kit......put together a card kit, bring it with you and swap it with somebody else.

Challenges.....prizes will be awarded.
Black and White with one colour spot......a LO or a card.
Altered Tin.....bring a tin of some sort with you (or for example, an instant gravy pot with lid) and alter it.
Stash Baggie.....bring with you a small bag with no more than five items in it. (brads, ribbon, chipboard piece, blossom, etc - whatever you want). These will be put into a 'hat' and each person will take one out. You will then make a LO or card using EVERY item in the bag.

Each entry will be given a number. Then a private vote will be taken to decide the winner.

There will also be a prize for the best project (challenge, swap or your own) over the whole weekend. Mr Green

So, there you go. Not a lot but I think just enough to keep us busy.
I hope you're all happy with it.

.........................................................................

TO BRING WITH YOU:.............everybody is to make the same number of TWINCHIES as people attending. Each twinchie is to have a photo of you on it. These will then be swapped amongst us, so we each have one of every one else's to take away with us as a memento. Mr Green

.........................................................................

Other things that could be done:
Bring some stamped images and everybody can choose a few they like.
Bring any stash that you don't want or use to sell, swap or give away.

Well my little brightside tells me that everyone who comes will have a happy time and not be feeling at all ill or sickly or poorly but have lots of laughs and renew friendships that, to some people because they are friends on line, don't seem all that real but to US they are real as could be. Only headaches are going to be from too much wine and too much laughing together!!!

Sounds wonderful, Lou! They'd better get on with this darned kitchen so we can get the rest of the things done in this house - including my craft-room cupboards, if I want to have any chance of finding my "essential" items!

Sounds great Lou, just need to go read the other posts. Will bring those books to sell if I remeember that I just mentioned,lol.

I missed the AI class too as was doing the shrink plastic. So i am glad we aren't having things lap over. I know what photo I can bring, but not sur I am very good at LO's and would hate to spoil someone elses pic.

Book sounds good, I would like to do a recipe book for Rosie so this could be for that.

AS for the Twinchies, I hope people do put their photos on because when I did the ATC swap last time and asked for pics hardly anyone put them on!!

I just wish you had told us before xmas about those as would have had more time. Will really have to get on with assignments now,lol.

Are we able to have a "sales table" as I think we did last time (or am I just imagining it?) I have several things I no longer use and it would be a good way of someone picking up a bargain for a very cheap price? What say you Lorraine?

My memory worries me Patty. This morning there was a little crossword
and the clue was Zodiac sign - 5 letters beginning with L. I had a blank.
I wanted to put Libya but knew that was wrong, and I also didn,t want to
resort to looking at the horoscope pages. I did of course manage to get there
in the end, but it took a couple of minutes nd its really worrying if I can't
remember something that would have normally been easy peasy. As you know,
I love my crosswords and can't believe I struggled to remember this.

Oh Steph don't fret about it because the more you think of a particular word, the more difficult your brain finds it (well "one's" brain, not just yours!!) I am often totally amazed that I can't think of the name of a plant, which I know full well really, but then it comes to me some time later in the day (or week!!) I have given up worrying about it as I know my memory is very good for my age.
