Holiday Retreat- The Big Day!

Hey everybody and welcome back! Hopefully, you saw my post on Monday showing all the prep work that went into this year's Holiday Retreat. Today, I'll show you some photos of the actual retreat! Boy am I glad when this day finally arrives!  

Here is the LONG room ready for all the stampers to come and create. 

And then here is the room once everyone has arrived! Doesn't it look like a fun place to be! 

 
From the other end of the room. This room was great. It was super long and held LOTS of tables. 



There were lots of stations set up around the perimeter of the room. Here is one of the displays. Lot son Christmas things to look at! 


This is the Raffle Table. Raffle tickets were sold and then put into the prizes they wanted to win. i love calling this numbers at the end of the retreat and sending happy people home with new product! 

This was one of the sale tables. I had adhesive, kits, and  Paper Pumpkin for sale.

 This is the stamping station for the retreat projects. There were seven projects in all for just the retreat. 


There were also stations set up for the add on classes. here was the table for the Cup of Christmas class. 


And then there are the tool stations! I bring all my tools, stamps, inks and paper trimmers for everyone to use. 






And then of course there is the snack station! Everyone brings a snack to share and earns five extra door prize tickets as a thank you! We always have WAY too much junk food. But it's everyone's favorite stop for sure! 


And last, here are just a couple of fun pictures. I was so busy (and tired) to remember to take photos though out the day. These lovely ladies are my downline! What a fun job I have to get to spend my "work" time with my friends! 
 
We even had downline come from Houston and NYC! I was especially excited to spend the weekend with them! 

Thanks for stopping by today!

Holiday Retreat- The Prep Work!


Hey everybody! I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving (to all of my American friends) and a relaxing weekend! Today, I am going to start sharing all of my Holiday Retreat photos. I'm not going to lie, this retreat did me in. I was EXHAUSTED this time. It took me all of last week to recover. I sent out 65 To Go kits and hosted 35 ladies local. So, thats a grand total of 100 participants. That's 700 make and takes, 300 pillow gifts and dozens and dozens of different add on classes. It was pretty Epic and I am so grateful for everyone who participated! 


Luckily, I had some AMAZING helpers, The week before, my assistant Denise and my Mom came over to help me sort and pack. 

The only problem with that is we like to talk!! This caused for more than one mistake, but at least we  had fun! 


Look how cute my bags were! I ordered them from Promotique.


We also had to assemble and pack the cookie boxes. My downline Antoinette did an amazing job designing these beauties!

I got my cookies again from Lovin' From The Oven. She's a local cookie baker here in the Helotes area and she always designs cookies to go along with my theme. 

My mom whipped up 100 servings of Crack Corn and we packed them in these gorgeous Sweet Treat Cups designed by my downline Anne Marie. Unfortunately, this is the best picture I got of them!! And believe me, this photo doesn't do it justice! 

 Here's a photo where you can see the sides with the DSP. 


Friday night, we headed over to the hotel to set up. This is my favorite part! 


 Here is what the tables looked like. Everyone got their own table to spread out and work on. That little sprite holder was made by my assistant- so cute! I'll share that later this week. We got the idea from Amy Storrie who made something similar for her retreat. Unfortunately, I couldn't mail sodas. Could you imagine!! So, these were just for the local retreat.

 So, prepping for a huge event is exhausting but oh so much fun! I have LOTS more photos to show you, but I'm going to make you wait until tomorrow to see them! Hope you'll come back and join me!
