Whew…. what a weekend!

I am pretty much on cloud nine this week (even though I’m dragging a little bit, still!). It was such a wonderful weekend at my 7th (!) Cape Cod Creative Escape event. As always, my amazing helpers (Sherry, Anna, Linda, Jackie & Heather) helped me pull off an amazing weekend of fun. I thought I’d share some of the highlights here with you today… for those of you that weren’t able to join us… maybe it will help entice you to join us in November — from Nov. 16-19 at the Four Points Sheraton in Eastham. Registration for the fall event will begin August 1st. So be sure to join my mailing list if you want to be in the loop on that. Each event has a “theme” and for this one it was “carnival.” So we tried to make everything match that theme… here were the centerpieces that my niece put together using some carnival tickets and some fun photo props (which we encouraged the attendees to use in their photos throughout the weekend): This was the registration table centerpiece and a bunch of the “welcome” gifts everyone received.

During rehearsals on Friday, I was super nervous… I really wanted to vomit before it was my turn to have my “test” run. But I made it through that (and actually nailed the time allotment I had!) so I was feeling much better. On the day of the actual presentation I went over a bit on my time, and forgot to mention one important part of the stamp set, but overall it was fine. It was kind of funny because at the beginning I told them a little bit about my previous public speaking experiences (the fact that I always cried) so I told them not to yell at me if they couldn’t see something or if I did something wrong as I’d probably cry (I was really only joking — well, kind of). Well, for my first two projects the camera wasn’t working, but no one told me! They
