I and 6 other women went away for a scrapbooking weekend to Belgium, WI.
Here's her facebook page.
This is a nicely decorated, redone, older home with 2 bedrooms, kitchen and eating area, dining room, sitting room, 2 bedrooms, one full bath and one 1/2 bath, crafting tables in the basement and tables also in the front room for scrapbooking. It's such a peaceful, clean, and calm house. JoJo provides the bedding, towels, and any basic kitchen utensils you need. She also has many, many stamping and scrapbooking tools to use.
We arrived around 2 on friday and left sunday after 3pm. Jojo did stop over sunday to see us...we wanted to meet her, she's so energetic!
I think some of the gals ate lunch there but we ate before we left here. It's only an hour ride from here....that was so nice ...not to have to drive for hours. Friday night we went out for fish, we just walked across the street. The remainder of the weekend we cooked, taking turns. Saturday morning we had belgium waffles, for lunch we ate chicken salad sandwiches, fruit salad, 7 layer salad, and some cookie bars. Dinner was Nachos, salad, etc. Sunday we had omelets.....yummy! Lunch was leftovers...and we had plenty to go around. Saturday was a gorgeous day so I ate on the deck and went for a walk with Carolee.

I impressed myself by staying up until about 2 am on friday night and working on my scrapbook the whole weekend. I finished one book that I had started and completed another one.
Here we are!

This was our bedroom....love the colors...each bedroom had 4 twin beds.
The Ott lights were provided, along with magnetic mats (with magnets). I now can see how the magnetic mats could be useful.
A few of my simple pages.
The page below is one that Penny designed, it is MUCH cuter in person.
The side flap on the right opens to reveal a place for more photos. There's space on the front of the house for a photo also.
Penny is a CTMH demonstrator and the company sells these really neat add on flaps/pages in various sizes. I love 'em!
We also made some really cool necklaces. We could do this Ava :-)
These were really easy. I chose the Awesome because grandson J always tells me I am. Penny was so very helpful!
