Fall Creative Retreat – Stamp Camp 2015 (part two)

Back again today to share a little more from last months Fall Retreat.
You can take a peek at Part One HERE.

Creative Retreat at Kirkwood Camp www.stampwithanita.com
This was our incredible view all weekend overlooking the lake with all the slender and color of the Fall leaves reflecting in it’s waters. Simply breathtaking and a reminder of how good it is to take time to not only come here and create, but be still and take in all it’s beauty.

Looking at this pic I can still recall just how refreshing and comforting it was to stop and breathe in deeply all this goodness and exhale with peace.

There is just a special buzz when creativity and friendship is happening all at once!

A few more pics of things that brought a smile to my face over the weekend…
Special tokens of kindness and friendship were spotted

And even “Stigma” made an appearance. It was a blessing that Natalie was with me for the weekend finishing up her “Stigma” fur suit. It is amazing how talented she is. As I sit and write this Blog post, I am also a reminded to not take any minute of any day for granted, because in this moment she doesn’t have the strength to stand let alone be able to work on any projects. I recently did a Blog post HERE on our ongoing struggle and journey with health issues.
Over the years I’ve had a number of gals attend my retreat who were struggling with various health issues and it’s nice that everything is under one roof to make it easier for them to attend. And honestly there is just something special and healing about this sacred place.


Oh… Did I mention how yummy the food is!!! We were well feed for sure!
Tim is an AMAZING chef and host for the weekend!

And of course you can’t watch a Buckeyes’ game without having a tailgate party “camp style”, along with our a chocolate fountain and indoor campfire for roasting marshmallows!

I leave this last pic with you today as I need to go figure out what we will be enjoying tonight as we watch the Buckeyes play again. Come back soon to check out PART 3 where I will share with you some of the photo booth fun we had as well as a peek into some of the fun projects that were created over the weekend. Till then…
