Pardon the vacation…

Hello ladies and gents! 

My apologies for my week of blogging, but I've been an insanely crazy busy girl!  However, to make up for it this week, my posts will have extra samples in them!

Last week I had several activities with my kids (including the "my changing body" meeting with my daughter…how can she be that old????), a class and I left Thursday afternoon for my Downline Retreat at my Cabin in Harper's Ferry.  It was a lot! 

We had a great time at the downline retreat–but just about everything that could go wrong did:  I was stuck in my driveway from the moment I got there (it took 1 1/2 hours to get out with the help of the neighbor and his family, Deb, Kris, and Pamela and a lot of re-purposed gravel!

I couldn't get the water turned on when I arrived…it was frozen…which led to the first of 2 sessions of peeing in a cup (aren't you glad I am sharing!) 

A pipe froze overnight and we woke up to no water on Sunday morning, I thought a pipe had burst, but after Andy drove up to investigate, it does not appear to be a burst pipe!  Whew!!

Enough of that…here is some of the fun stuff we made while up there:

I had several projects for the girls to make (similar to my all day stamping events)  Here are a few of the things they made:
