A Southern Getaway

A year ago this past October, Tammy and I attended a scrapbook retreat in the Outer Banks, lovingly referred to as Getaway by those who attend. We met the lucious Miss Luz there. Sadly, this year we couldn't go. We talked about the fact that we loved getting away to craft, and wondered what we would do instead. We knew we wanted to get together, especially since we have been doing the Etsy and Lollishops thing together.

Months came and went, and we still had no plans. Then, Tammy came up with the idea of not only me coming to visit, but why not add a few to the mix? We kicked that idea around, and when we finally settled on a date- everything came into place. Friends, crafting, art - who could ask for more?

Then this came:

I'm telling you, I was practically screaming. I called Tammy right away, and said "I am peeing my pants, I'm so excited." I know, not a pretty thought, but can you see why??? And it's not even until the end of April.

Cocktails, hanging with the girls. And then it got better. Dawn Edmonson, of The Feathered Nest, will be coming- to hang out, teach a class, spend the night, and go to Savannah the next day!!

This amazing invitation book is seven pages long, both front and backs lovingly and meticulously designed. Tammy has an amazing skill with paper. Any scrapbook company out there would be lucky to have her on board. We have often talked about designing our own line of paper - now you can see why.

We'll each be bringing a little goody bag. These are going to be really fun to put together. I'll be making out like a bandit!
hugs- Lee

This gives me hope that I can get to a place in my life where artistic weekends are a reality, instead of just a dream. It may be a way off...but it is worth waiting for. I am absolutely jealous of not only the weekend, but the delicious 2 months of anticipation.
