My desk at my first craft retreat | Tracy Marie Lewis |

Today I am heading out to my third crafting retreat. I am so lucky that I live less than 20 minutes from this awesome location. The venue is called the Hobby Hideaway. The first time I way overpacked, below I show pictures of my packed goods. The main picture shows my setup that first time. I had so many supplies under my desk I had no room for my feet. The second retreat I was much more organized, I was in a corner so had alot more room. I did forget a few things, like my fan/heater and I was very warm all weekend and most important, I forgot to take pictures... ack!

Today I remembered to pack my fan, see it in picture three! Two other critical small items are a tv tray and my blanket. At this particular venue you get a table, grid shelving, an Ott light and a garbage can. I hope today being that I packed about half of the first two times, that I will be unpacked and repacked WAY faster! I am making albums this weekend. I brought NO card bases at all! I've been asked to provide some jewelry making instruction, specifically wire wrapping, so I packed wire wrapping tools and supplies as well as samples. I have promised myself I WILL remember to take pictures.

What I enjoy most about retreats is the camraderie, seeing all the great projects people bring to work on, and the FOOD of course!

Thanks for stopping by, please feel free to leave comments or questions, I am here to help!
