Not sure how I'm feeling about going back to school except I do know I'M NOT READY!

When we got the news that the first day of high school was cancelled due to some kid calling in a bomb threat I was secretly relieved...and I kind of understood how the kid who pulled that prank felt...not that what he did was a good thing, but that he'd risk calling that threat in to avoid returning to school for even one more day!

I miss summer already!  It seems like the break was shorter this year.  Was it?  Maybe it's like after vacation blues except wait...we didn't go on vacation this summer end blues?

I'm one of those Moms who loves the laziness of summer months, no homework, no early morning schedule unless WE choose to be up early and I love that my kids are home...I know where they are, what they are doing, that they are safe, that they can come to me when they need me and I enjoy hanging out with them.

I'm dragging my feet but my kids are excited...excited to see friends they haven't seen all summer, to meet new teachers, get new school supplies and to get back to class and back into a routine...and so I'm putting on my big girl pants and getting back into the swing of things!  

See?  I even decorated the porch!

It's a Wrap!

I love Christmas...don't you?  
I get that tickle in my stomach feeling of excitement like I did as a kid!  

I'm so excited about November's retreat!  I'm going to have a gift wrap table all set up!  
I love wrapping presents and making them extra special for my kids, my friends and family and for the neighbors!   

Lucky you!  You'll be able to get some of your gifts wrapped up and ready to go for Christmas too!  And we'll get it done EARLY!!! 

So many fun ideas out there for gift wrap!  

Only $75 down holds you a spot!

My November Retreat will be focused on getting ready for Christmas ahead of the game so that we can enjoy the season with our families and not be running around like mad women!  This retreat will be held at the Heber House, a beautiful house up in Heber, Utah designed for crafting!  

The retreat begins Thursday, November 6th with check out on Sunday, November 9, 2014!

6 spots left!  $75 down holds your spot!  You can make monthly payments but total is due 30 days prior to retreat dates!  

Out of State and want to fly in?  Travelers will land in the Salt Lake City International Airport.  Grab a friend a book a room together!

If you scroll down my blog you'll find pictures of the house and see our past retreats...SO MUCH FUN!

There is nothing better than getting amazing women together in the spirit of Christmas making gifts for others!  We will be creating, sharing our lives and celebrating this beautiful time of year in an inspirational craft house with your own craft space with personal cup holder!  
Life does not get much better than this!
Come celebrate with me!
