Creative Escape 2020

This year marks a new adventure for Creative Escape! And I am really excited to let the adventure beginnnnnnnn!

It makes me laugh……When I was sick in bed with a fever this past Friday, I got an email requesting a little more info from me to prepare the lease agreement for THE GREAT ESCAPE LODGE… aptly named for our Creative Escape to be at the Great Escape Lodge….sounds like a winner!

OK……I guess I’d better slow down and explain! September 25-26th Creative Escape will be at a log cabin in Beech Mountain NC that sleeps 35 this year.

I am taking reservations for 32 ladies! So click on the link below, print off your confirmation and information sheet, fill it out and return to me with your $50 deposit fee. This will go immediately to help offset the $2200 on my credit card to reserve the accommodations.

Questions you may ask?

How far is Beech Mountain NC? It’s 2 hours from my house and I hear its around 2 hours from Spartanburg. I will get specific address later

Cost for Creative Escape? It will be an extra $125 to cover house and 2 more meals. However, you may come as early as Thursday evening (have your supper eaten or with you) and stay as late as Sunday morning. I plan to leave Saturday night but you may spend the night and make sure all is clear and out by Sunday 10am. (You’ll be on your own Saturday night supper too.) I will provide some good restaurants in the area at a later time. Normal cost for CE with bundle purchased from me is around $225. So total put back $350 or you can save/pay $50 a month

Parking at rental? There are 12 spaces to park at the house….so I would encourage car pooling.

Help unloading bags? Yes, I think that an awesome thing especially this time. I am going to be working on that….possibly my hubby if I let him spend one night on Thursday to paint???? Maybe someone in the area???

Theme for Scrapbooking? Don’t have any idea….got to wait until I see the annual/Christmas catalogs. Yes, you may leave this part of the confirmation blank and tell me later.

2020 Creative Escape Confirmation and Information

(I hope you will be able to just copy and paste this part on to a document…if not, I will bring copies with me to club/team meetings/or let me know and I’ll mail one to you.)

This year marks a new adventure for Creative Escape attendees!  I have reserved the above log cabin located in Beech Mountain NC to house our retreat for September 25 -26th.  I am allowed to check in Thursday, September 24th at 4pm….so you may arrive that evening (make sure you have or bring your supper) and must be completely vacated by 10am Sunday, Sept. 27th.  I will be leaving Saturday evening.

One goal in renting a home this large is to have a bed for everyone and a little extra free time to relax, hike, or craft.  The cost for renting breaks down to $115 per person and then I will have you for 2 more meals….so I think I’d better add $10 for food, drinks, and consumables.

This log cabin has 10 bedrooms/6 bathrooms and sleeps 35.  I will be taking 32 reservations this year for Creative Escape!  Please get your $50 deposit in ASAP.  

Please note on the seating…..I will make efforts to sit you with your requests, but I have not actually been in the house yet….so arrangements may vary from previous years.

While at the house please NO: pets, smoking inside, or alcohol

Cards for your inspiration:

Sorry…can’t seem to do what I need to do to put description under pictures this evening.

The first birthday card is by Debbie F. I love the flowers she colored and the addition of the rhinestones make it all pop with color!

Next….is a great collapsible card again using the Happy Birthday stamps and dies….a great purchase of die set and SAB freebie! and

the last set of cards…I don’t think I’ve shared with you. It’s something I made with mom on Sunday afternoons. The birds are from a precious gift from my friend Carole K. They are Kleenex she found that totally match the stamp set, Free As A Bird from Stampin’ Up. I let my mom have them…she totally loves them!!! And we used the Felted Napkin Technique to make all these cards. 🙂 smiles to many faces Carole! Thank you all!

    Sounds exciting. I can reserve when I get home. I’m currently in London, to be home at the end of the week.
