A few pea-nouncements

Good evening ladies,

Never could we have imagined when the three of us moved forward with the idea of hostessing retreats last year that it would turn into such a fun experience. We were all so excited to share in the planning and the ideas flowed like a waterfall. We are in awe and thankful that everyone is having such a great time and we strive to make them better with each passing retreat. Having three ladies with different ideas and styles really enabled us to bring different aspects of scrapbooking & stamping to our guests. We are sure saddened to lose Lisa Gomez and will miss her dearly. However, new & exciting things are on the horizon for her and we can't wait to see what inspired ideas come from her continued involvement with The Angel Company as she grows her business in Corpus. Hopefully she'll come back to see us for a visit and share her new ideas. In the meantime - we wish you much hap-pea-ness girl!

We met with Lisa Shapiro over the weekend to get the "goods" on her October class ...if you thought the last one was cute hold on to your hats because this one is precious! Over the course of the last year, Lisa has shared some unique ideas with us for the retreats and after the response to her class in August we felt she would be a good fit for the pod. We are excited to announce that she will join us in hostessing the retreats from this point forward. For those who don't know her, Lisa has taught at a few local scrap stores, been on design teams and always seems to be up on the latest trends and products. Welcome Lisa; we're hap-pea to have you and look forward to seeing what you have up your sleeve!

Lastly, we can't believe the October retreat filled up so ladies booked it full in one day flat! Since we have all our participants signed up, we've listed the swap poll for October; please vote in as many as you like. Depending on the numbers we may have a few and we'll give you the option when we take sign ups to participate in one, two or all. With the poll we're just looking to see where the interest lies most. Please keep in mind that if you sign up and aren't able to participate email us ASAP so we can fill the spot or make additional items to cover your spot - we're happy to do so, just let us know.

Michelle and Nicole
