Family Tradition Share / Blog Candy

The holiday season is approaching FAST! Family traditions are important and special no matter how big or small. We spend a lot of time scrapbooking special events & memories and here on the LMN-O-Pea blog we are really interested in hearing some of your family's holiday traditions!

So….share with us! What makes the holidays special to you and your family? What is it that your family does every year and without it the holidays just wouldn't be the same? Do you bake cookies as a family, is it a special recipe that Grandma or Mom makes only during the holidays? Or..maybe its something totally different. We would love to hear your stories so respond to us here on the blog...post..post..post away :-)

Also by responding on our blog only (not the yahoo group) you qualify for a really cute giveaway! Each person that shares a family tradition with us will be eligible to win!! A winner will be chosen via the integer generator and announced the week of December 1st. The winner will receive a small gift in the mail from LMN-O-Pea!

Future Retreat Update

Much to our delight everyone is having such a good time at the retreats, those of you who have expressed interest in the April retreat exceeds our usual capacity. Originally, we gave all our past retreaters a week to sign up before we opened the retreat to the public. Given the overwhelming response and new friends who want to be included we feel it best to switch to a true first come first served policy.

We have reconfigured the room to allow for additional retreaters. For those of you who have attended in the past, don't be alarmed. We aren't taking any space away, you will still have your regular crop space and the same amount of room between tables.

Sign ups for April are open and you are free to sign up anytime you like. In order to hold your spot you must complete your registration form, email it back to us and pay your deposit of $50. Your second payment will not be due until Feb 15th, third & final payment due on March 15th. After we have received your registration form and deposit you will receive a confirmation email that you are registered. Once the retreat is full, the contact list we set up will become our waiting list. The registration form has been posted on the yahoo group. Paypal buttons for each retreat are here on the blog for your convenience. If you prefer to mail your payment; please contact us for payment information and if you would like to be on the contact list for April or October of 2009, please email us ASAP so we can add your name.

Please encourage anyone wanting to attend the retreat with you to email us ASAP and join the yahoo group.

Thank you,

Lisa, Michelle & Nicole
