I mentioned last week that I would share the little treats that everyone received at our March retreat. This is just one of the many things I love about my retreats – spoiling those who come. It doesn’t matter if it’s a local retreat or an away retreat. Everyone gets gifts everyday they are there.
You’ve already seen the welcome gift. If you missed that blog post, you can find it here. The photos I’m sharing today are the little gifts that I gave each day we were out there.
This cute little notebook with matching tag was one of the gifts. I can’t remember which night, either Wednesday or Thursday. I used the Yay You host stamp set to create the tag. I just love that stamp set, it has the cutest sayings in it like ‘You are my kind of fantastic’ and ‘you inspire me every day’ and ‘enjoy the simple things’. I love sets that have great greetings that you can use over and over.
This was Friday nights gift. I used up some cone shaped bags that I had left over from years ago. Filled them with skittles and made a tag using patterned paper from the Birthday Memories dsp. The greeting and the bird are both from the stamp set A Good Day in the occasions catalogue. That set is also the set with the adorable bunny that you see all over Pinterest and the deer.
Saturday’s gift was Easter themed. I used up the egg cartons I had left from last year. They turned out so adorable. The grass is from the Picnic Basket builder framelits, the bunny from the We Must Celebrate stamp set and the greeting from Birthday Blooms.
On Sunday everyone received a version of this little treat. I used the Springtime Foil dsp and pool party ribbon not the dsp shown here. I just forgot to take a photo before I handed them all out.
Someone mentioned that making all these must take forever. I admit it does take a couple days to design, cut and assemble but I love doing it and my Mom always comes over to help.
I’m in the process of planning my gifts (and classes) for my May retreat now. There are still a few spots available. Let me know if you’d like to attend. All the information can be found here.
Have a creative day!
