Lake View Lodge Update

We've been working fast and furiously over the last two weeks, getting ready for Craft Haven Retreat's Grand Opening! Painting, cleaning, moving doorways, building shelving, and oh so much organizing! Thanks to Verne, Sonny, John and Wayne, things are looking good around here. Here's a picture of one of the finished bedrooms, the Star Quilt Room! It turned out super cute. I'm working on the Log Cabin Quilt room today. What fun!
Christopher's hockey rink on the lake is snowed over since our last trip up. He's been shoveling a new one and hopefully we'll get to try out our new skates that we all got for Christmas!

We'll be hosting a Stampin' Up! workshop at Lake View within the next two weeks. We'll be trying out Stampin' Up!'s new line of clear stamps and making projects for Valentine's Day.
There are still openings so let us know if you would like to attend! Details will be posted soon.

Back to cleaning for now - more pictures later!

Welcome to Craft Haven Retreats Blog!

Welcome to the official blog for Craft Haven Retreats! For those of you that don't already know, Craft Haven Retreats is a brand new business that my dear friend, Melannie, and I have formed. Craft Haven Retreats will soon be offering the most fabulous, all inclusive, weekend crafting retreats ever! Just imagine spending an entire weekend with your best girlfriends, doing what you love the most - CRAFTING! Whether it's scrapbooking, card making, rubber stamping, quilting or bead working, Craft Haven Retreats is just what you need.

Leave the "to do" list at home and spend time relaxing with friends, both old and new. We'll take care of everything for you - the cooking and cleaning, the laundry, grocery shopping, and running the errands. We'll car pool your kids, mow your lawn, walk your dog, put out your cat and visit your mother-in-law. Well, maybe not all that, but we will provide you with everything you need for a truly awesome weekend retreat!

*Comfortable accommodations at our newly acquired Lake View Lodge. Located on beautiful Dewey Lake, Michigan, this spacious lodge style home will eventually accommodate 18 weekend crafters
