Sunday Scrappin'

I finally had time to do something crafty, although it wasn't much. I made a simple birthday card for my husband. Just some layered paper, a stamp, and 3 brads.

I also organized all of my photos and started gathering my supplies to take with me next weekend on a scrapbooking retreat! My sister and I are going to Rockin R Retreat and Event Center for the weekend. So, two weeks from now, I should have a lot done!

This is a new place for us to go, and I'm a little unsure about it now. I got an email from the organizer of the retreat today asking if my sis and I minded if she moved us to a room upstairs to share with another woman (that we don't know).

First of all, yes I mind. We booked that particular retreat for the main reason that we would have a room to ourselves. I can't sleep when there is a stranger in the room. We've done that before, and both times, I was miserable.

She said that one of the ladies is having foot surgery Tuesday, and she will be in a wheelchair for the weekend, and since space is limited downstairs (I wonder if she just doesn't want to room with her), do we mind if she moves us? Yes, actually, I do.

The lady who's having surgery should have planned better! I know it sounds mean, but couldn't she postpone her surgery a few days or reschedule her retreat? We booked and paid for our retreat two months ago. So, that is upsetting me a little bit, but we'll see how it turns out, and if we ever use that particular place again.

Have a scrappy week! And join us for Sunday Scrappin' if you have time to do some crafts!


  1. I hope the room all works out. How exciting a retreat and for something fun! I can not wait to see your accomplishments.

    Thanks for the comments on my blog as well.

  2. ummm yeah i would mind too. this is not your problem, enjoy your retreat, lett the woman you DO mind and go have fun...not your job to worry about the other details.

    i don't think there is anything wrong with insisting that you get what you paid for a RETREAT (defined: a place of privacy and safety) where you can get your scrappin' on!

  3. A scrapbooking retreat sounds wonderful! I look forward to seeing you post some of what you do. :) I hope the room situation works out for you.

  4. Good For you, you absolutly shouldn't be expected to share a room! Hanging with new people during the day is one thing, but sleeping with them is totally another. That is your escape and that is what you paid for! Hope it all works out and that you & your sis have a wonderful time.

  5. Hey, thanks for stopping by and leaving comments! ;)
    I totally understand about a scrapbooking retreat! They are precious and few and too far between to worry about sleeping arrangements! How do you know this woman won't snore and keep you up all night??? :) Ask the organizer that!


I love comments! Thanks for stopping by my blog today!
