Retreat was a mixed bag this time around, not as much as it's organization or composition. My head just hasn't been 'there' recently
Friday Angela and I hit the road at 9 with one packed Corolla! We made it to Because You Count to stock up on supplies. Pam made it up from Nova Scotia and tailed us where I knew where I was going. Stop #2-the delightful Cafe Archibald.
Angela's Skor bit Dessert
Pam's cinnamon roll crepe ( which I indulged in as well)
Then it was time to visit the wonderful framers at Elite to frame some pieces for Angela and me. Then a little clothing shopping before heading to Wildwood.
It was hard acknowledging Cathey's passing for those that hadn't heard. It was reliving it all over again. There was a half a dozen times I just wanted to email her a 'you would not believe...' Or some other annoyance that we would have had in common. I kept to myself a lot more than usual. In recent years that's my only kid free crafting time so I'm not as social as I used to be. Time is precious! However I did enjoy watching some of the games, especially the girls attempt to make snowmen..
As usual there was the annual retreat exchange, which I just didn't have enough time to participate in. However it was fun to watch the hand out :)
Then of course there was a table for finished pieces. I finally had a piece to share in the
And with that retreat was over in a flash. We packed up the Corolla and headed back for a pit stop in Moncton to check ou the new Mode Choc store. Our girls have some nice fashion goodies coming this Christmas!
Until next time!
