Wanna Scrapbook Get-A-Way Weekend?

We all need to schedule “me” time and I can not think of a better mini vacation that involves relaxation, pampering, scrapbooking, and friends! “The Kansas Keepsakes Retreat, Inc. is a one-of-a-kind bed and breakfast retreat center that is a perfect location for any scrapbooker’s get-a-way weekend. You will love the cropping/crafting room. It has over 1,100 square feet and is located in a separate building only two steps from the back deck so you can pound grommets or laugh all night long without waking anyone.”

“The original house was built in 1907 in Lyons, Kansas, and has been beautifully renovated specifically to meet B&B and visiting groups’ wants and desires. The house has beautiful inlaid wood floors, two incredible fireplaces, a huge dining room, and a warm cozy living room.”

“Our groups receive a total of five great meals beginning on Friday evening through Sunday brunch. This also includes numerous snacks and unlimited beverages, (regular and diet soda, tea, coffee, bottled water).”

“Our cropping room is large and spacious with over 1100 square feet of working area – built especially for scrapbookers. Each guest gets a full 8-foot table all to herself. We have sturdy solid tables – not the flimsy kind. You can spread out your tools and embellishments when you get here and you do not have to pick them up until time to go home. Our chairs are adjustable executive office chairs with casters for moving around without having to get up. Each table has an Daylight lamp, extra outlets for your personal tools, a large waste basket, and a spill proof drink holder. There are two television sets so you can watch TV or a movie while you crop, and a stereo with CD player to listen to your favorite music.”

“The cropping room is open for non-stop cropping from 1:00 p.m. on Friday until departure at 1:00 p.m. on Sunday. It is located in a separate building just two steps off the back deck so you can work all night without disturbing anyone, or if you choose to retire early, you will not be wakened by those obsessed scrapbookers who will not sleep. The cropping room will be open for guest use during the midweek retreat from 1:00 p.m. on Monday until departure at 1:00 p.m. on Wednesday. The cropping area has its own kitchen so you can have a cup of coffee or a cold drink and a snack should your energy start to slow during the night.”
“We encourage you to bring your own personal tools and favorite cropping supplies because there is plenty of room for everything on your 8-foot table. We also have a great variety of tools for your use while at Kansas Keepsakes Retreat Inc., some of which are listed below:

We have adhesives, papers, markers, brads, flowers, ribbons, buttons, and more embellishments. There is enough to make sure that you will not run out of the basic necessities plus a little more. We do not want you to go home with uncompleted projects.”

“The price for our all-inclusive scrapbooking weekend at Kansas Keepsakes Retreat, Inc. is $275.00. This includes lodging for 2 nights, nonstop scrapbooking for 48 hours, meals from Friday evening through Sunday brunch, lots of snacks and unlimited beverages, and hostesses to care for your every need. All crafters are welcome to spend a weekend with us. Although we only have supplies and tools for scrapbookers, our 8-foot tables are large enough to accommodate almost any craft.”

“A $75.00 non-refundable deposit is required with your reservation. Your weekend must be paid in full 30 days prior to your stay. The balance can be made in payments if you wish. We accept Visa, Master Card, personal checks, cashier’s checks, money orders, and of course, gift certificates.”

“Weekend guests may arrive at 1:00 p.m. on Friday afternoon. Check-out time is 1:00 p.m. on Sunday afternoon. Our cropping room is open for your use from the time you arrive until departure.”

“Midweek scrapbookers may arrive at 1:00 p.m. on Monday afternoon. Checkout time is 1:00 p.m. on Wednesday. Your stay during the week also includes lodging for 2 nights, nonstop scrapbooking for 48 hours, meals from Monday evening through Wednesday brunch, lots of snacks and unlimited beverages, and hostesses to care for your every need.”

“Each scrapbooking guest must fill out their own reservation form. Reservations with your friends should be made at the same time in order to insure that we can accommodate all of you on your preferred weekend. Please let us know who you would like to room with. Before filling out your reservation form, please check to be sure your desired weekend is available. If not, contact us and we will see what we can work out for you.”

The Kansas Keepsakes Retreat, Inc. can only accommodate 12 scrapbookers, so please email me at amymuse@myctmh.com or call me at 785-539-3189, if you are interested in this opportunity. I will have information at all of my events during June and July, even though I am not organizing this retreat as a Close To My Heart Independent Consultant, but rather a scrapbooker and friend.

The tentative dates for this mini vacation are flexible at this point, but early August before school, but after all the cool summer pictures have been taken has been suggested! Stay tuned for more information…
