Sunday News

This is just going to be a very short blog entry today. I just can't keep my eyes open because I just got in last night from a week in Cancun inspecting 7 different Palace Resorts.  Oh my!  I am so ready to go back there, and I'm actually thinking about trying to put together a scrapbooking event there for next year.  I just wanted to pass on some little tidbits of information before I go fall out and take a long nap!

As you may have noticed, we have not held our annual Think Pink (aka Pam's Pals) event this year.  I'm sorry, but there was no availability at our usual location and it has also been a very busy fall so far this year.  I am working on putting something together for January, so I will keep you posted!

Events that are coming up in the next few months are:

  • Weekly Mother's Day Out crops most Thursdays 
  • 3rd Wednesday Stamp Club
  • 6th Annual Scrapbooking Cruise
Information about these and other events can be found on our website.

Here on the blog, we'll be having a few events, too.  For October, look for two different blog hops.  We'll be participating in our monthly Team LinkedIn blog hop and also the All Treats, No Tricks blog hop with Dallas/Fort Worth area stores and retreats.  Be sure to check out all the blogs for a chance to win a prize on each one.

And speaking of winning prizes, our September blog hop winner is Cheryl Albee.  Cheryl is the winner of a $25+ bag of embellishments.  Cheryl, you have 1 week to contact us to claim your prize!

Last, but not least, I want to talk a little more about Cancun.  As you may know, I am a travel agent, and I host scrapbooking cruises.  Sometimes these cruises are easy to put together, and sometimes they just don't work.  For instance, our 2013 cruise has undergone many changes.  We started out with a September departure on Carnival Cruise Line, and now we are on a Royal Caribbean cruise departing in December.  It all comes down to logistics -- finding the right dates, going to the right destination, at the right price with a conference room or other space available for our use 24/7.  I've already run into some difficulties trying to set up next year's cruise, and it looks like we may have to opt for a higher-priced cruise in order to get a date that will work for us.  So that leads me to another do you feel about doing a land-based premium retreat?  I'm talking about a vacation destination get-away to some awesome place where you can choose to scrapbook or just soak up some sun.  I have several destinations in mind, but they would all require flying, which would limit the amount of scrapbooking equipment you could bring along.  What do you think?  Comment below to share your thoughts on going to a destination retreat, and be sure to find us on facebook and take our poll on this subject.  You never know...we might have a great destination that's just right for you.
