ScrapGirls Retreat!

I just got back from Minnesota where I have spent the last four days having the most incredible time hanging out with my fellow designers and friends from ScrapGirls. I thought I would share some videos that we took so those of you that missed it could see what these gals are like in real life. Hear their voices, see their faces and see a little bit of their personality shine through. (The video is a little bit rough, since we had to shrink the file size to fit it all into one - but you should still be able to get the basic idea of it. If you want the real actual high quality file, just let me know.)



We had a great time talking nonstop (literally) for four days with an occasional walk around Theresa's gorgeous property! (Thank you Theresa so much for letting us stay with you!) I have never felt closer and more comfortable to anyone than I did these guys. They are incredible, talented, wonderful people and I realized even more so what an incredible opportunity I have to work for ScrapGirls with these amazing people.

Beau even survived staying home with the kids for 4 days. I came home to a clean house, washed laundry, no dirty dishes, and happy children. (He even cleaned my office which was an unbelievable mess when I left.) Did I not marry a good guy or what!

Loved your video! Thank you so much for sharing it with us. I wish I could have been there and so glad you all had a great time. It was really cool to actually hear the voices from all the familiar faces on SG. I knew who everyone was as soon as I saw them.
Thanks again!
