I'm so excited to have Aimee Ferre as my special guest for the retreat in September!  Like SO excited AND super stoked to make these Witch Boots!!!  

These boots are so amazing they were featured in the Better Homes & Gardens "Holiday Crafts" magazine.  
That's big stuff friends!  And she's kind of like a celebrity so I'm feeling pretty lucky to have her as a friend :)

Soooooo...wanted to give all my retreat girls a heads up to look out for a pair of black boots or shoes to grab and bring to the retreat.  This will be the one item we will not be providing because, well, boots & shoes are a personal thing and each of us have different styles we like and so this will help you get a pair that you absolutely LOVE and then Aimee will teach us how to make them beauteous & spooky!  Eek!  Can't wait!

Whose excited???  

Check out some of the beautiful boot creations Aimee has designed...try not to drool on your computer screen.

Hurry up September!

Welcome to my addiction.  

Hello.  My name is Christine and I am addicted to pom poms and felt balls.
Why can't I be addicted to working out, going to the gym or running?  Nope.  Not me.  I can endlessly wrap yard around a pom pom maker and string felt balls for hours on end.  So much that I now have yarn callouses on my fingers.  
If you run into me and I hide my hands then you'll know why.

In my defense this addiction has been strangely therapeutic.  It has replaced sitting in bed and eating chips.  I've lost weight and the chip companies want me back.

The colors are vibrant and make me happy.  Finished projects make me strangely giddy.

I'm excited to have found Benzie Design.  Their felt colors are heavenly and have inspired me to make some cute decor for our September retreat.  One day I may need to seek professional help but for now, I'll be stringing and pom pom'ing my way through life.

Can you believe it???
The Retreat is Sold Out!

Thank you to everyone who grabbed a spot! 
We are gonna have so much fun!
PS - if you missed out on this one, there are more to come!

We're Headed to Nibley!

Reclaim Retreat 2018 will be held in Nibley, Utah!

I don't know if it was the French Country style of the house, or the 100 year old barn next to the fire pit.  Maybe it was the gorgeous brick walls in the kitchen, the woodsy surroundings or those yellow bar stools but I found a retreat house and I am so excited!  

I love a good space and I believe the place I hold my retreats has to be special.  I have been searching high and low for a retreat house I could 1) afford and 2) was cute inside and outside and 3) was available the time I needed it.

I came across this beauty and the owner was nice enough to Face-time me so we could walk through the house together.  

The property is beautiful.  Large shade trees, a 100 year old barn where we can sit out around a campfire in the evenings, a beautiful large kitchen for gathering, crafting and talking into the wee hours of the night and a theater room!  Logan is close by and there are some amazing vintage stores, delicious eateries, nature and cows, fall colors and cute shops.  
I can't wait!
Only one spot left!!
Email me at to purchase.

Nibley, UT watch out!  Here we come!
