Thinking About Vacation :)

I have been really busy getting ready for my trip coming up. I am going on a mini-business-relaxation vacation. I will be attending the Make Mine Pink Retreat on Cape Cod. Joyce has rented a beach house and its gorgeous. I know she has so many fun, inspirational and informational things planned. There is a total of 9 of us going, and I know its going to be so much fun. I have never been to New England and this is somewhere I have always wanted to go. I think we will have some free time to explore and do some shopping. I know I plan on visiting Marion Pie Shop. Its came highly recomended from a very reliable source. lol

I have kind of slowed down on the business this week. I cant do everything and its high time I learned this. I have a pet sitting job that will take me about 4 hours per day and working full time too. So I am spending this weekend getting ready and everything sorted out. But as soon as I get back renewed, refreshed and ready to go, there will be alot of new things coming. This week I made this tote bag for my trip. I tested it out and used it today. Works good! :) I did make this cupcake wall banner that is part of a project that will be going to a magazine for consideration for a feature.

I will be around to visit you all! Have a very Happy and Blessed Memorial Day. Many thanks of gratitude for everyone serving our country and to those who have served to make America the country it is today :) Until next time............gail

Gail, good luck on the banner -- it sure is cute! I love the tote also! I love the trim on it...I was admiring Carol's as well...I need huge ones with snaps as I carry so much stuff!!!

Well, I am GREEN with envy over missing this retreat! :(( I have not been to New England yet and I dearly would love to go. So have fun for ALL of us that won't make it, ok?

Enjoy your trip...the Cape stays cooler than down here...but there is something about being by the ocean...very calming...inspirational...

PS Watch out for those Puritan squirrels!

You all are going to have a great time on the Cape. What a beautiful house. The Cape is just gorgeous. Be sure to experience the Christmas Tree shop if you never have.
Your purse is gorgeous. I love the fabric and ribbon combo.
Have a good Memorial Day. We're off to the beach to cook out.

Hey Gail,

It's me again! Monday was a normal work day for me, but my colleagues in US were on holiday, so I came to know about it. I hope you're having a blast at the retreat!
