Spooky Coasters

These are the coaster decorations that the SASSSC girls made at the Diva Retreat. Each was given a package that contained 6 4x4 coasters, the letters to spell out "spooky" that were die cut with the big shot, and one embossed spider web. Everyone used their own paper and additional embellishments. I think they turned out fantastic! I want to thank the designer of this idea, who ever you are!

Since I had already made a "spooky" set, I decided to make a "merry" set at the retreat.

SASSSC Weekend

The Diva's

The SUV was loaded to the top. Lynn and I rode with Adriana. We all had projects to bring for the group to make, plus our luggage, garage sale items, party bags for the Divas, and all our supplies. We thought it would be better going home, but it was just as packed!

High Tea

Crafting Divas

Group shot Sunday morning on the porch

What a wonderful time was had at the SASSSC retreat at Premier Estates in Wallis, Texas. 10 of the SASSSC ladies were able to go. The planning committee had 5 projects planned. The theme for the weekend was Diva. We presented each member with a pink tiara to wear for the weekend and we named all the meal times with a "royal" title, such as Dinner at Buckingham Palace, the Royal Ball, Lunch at the Pub, the Queen's Brunch and High Tea. Many of us also squeezed in a shopping trip to Archivers before and after the retreat!
