Busy Tonight!

My "retreat mode" has had me working on the seating chart tonight.  I am really excited about it.  I think you are going to really like the room at this new place.  But, I want to mention a couple of things.  (Remember, I was forced to change venues AFTER I already had registrations coming in for this one!)

The room is a little smaller than at Cobblestone, but I think we are still going to have plenty of room.  PLENTY!  I have a little concern, though.  The ceilings are low and the lighting is not great.  Can't do anything about the "lowness" of the ceilings, but it does make the room look small, but I am getting used to it!

As for the lighting... all I can say is YOU have any concerns, just bring yourself a workstation light.  My contact at the hotel has said that's what everyone else who has attended scrapbook retreats there did that and were just fine!  So, we are going to go with that.

Outlets are plentiful, but it never hurts to put and extension and/or a multiplug surge protector in just in case.

Don't worry... I'll be reminding you of all of this as we get closer!  I was just sitting here tonight planning and I have to put my "thoughts" somewhere!!!  So, if you are a blog reader, you get to read my mind!

Reminder to self... put out email/blog entry about...
Scrap Pool
Food wants/needs
Tool Table
Prize Ideas

Ok... that helps clear my head.  I'm gonna go take inventory of prizes.  Wish me luck!


  1. You'll have to make us all a checklist so we remember to bring everything. I had totally forgot about snacks...I'll have to be thinking about a good recipe!

  3. Janis,
    It's nice that you're letting us in on all those details. I like that you're keeping us all in the loop. By the way, I like that you're thinking about prizes ideas. You always come up with such good giveaways!
