  • cut out the flower you like from Flowering Foils Speciality DSP and sponge with inks…..I used Petal Pink, Lovely Lipstick, Cherry Cobbler for large flower centers, and Mint Macaroon for leaves

2020 Creative Escape Confirmation and Information

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 in house, or alcohol
