Totally Inspiring...check it out!!

So I have the chills right now.....you've got to check this out!

Winner of the Retreat Giveaway from Cathy Zielske on Vimeo.

We're promoting our next MemoryWorks Scrapbook Retreat and partnered with Cathy Z. (a popular scrapbook desinger, author and blogger) to giveaway a FREE pass to our retreat. There were over 300 posts....this was Cathy's video on her blog announcing the winner.

There were comments from scrapbookers everywhere posting why they needed a retreat - some wanted to escape the every day demands of life, while others wanted to be inspired and get creative. But there was one post from Lori in Minnesota that tugged at everyone's heartstrings.

Here's what Lori posted:

"My house burned to the ground on February 7, 2009 and I lost ALL my scrapbooks! I need to start scrapping again. I'm in over my head with insurance paperwork, so a scrapbook retreat would be a great place to get started."

The winner of the retreat had posted this:

"I vote Lori in Minnesoty goes....my life is busy, tough, fun, but good right now. She needs a "pick me up." I also vote that we pool all of our stuff and send it to her so she has something to scrap with."

Just something to restore your faith in human mankind and the ties-that-bind those with the same passion! Due to the overwhelming response on Cathy's blog....and the posters who entered to win...we're welcoming Lori to the retreat for FREE! I can't wait to meet Lori....and I know we'll have even more surprises in store!!

That was great. I loved how SO many people put their names in the contest and said if they won they wanted to donate their prize. It's nice to see things like that going on.

Also, I am missing you already! Let's get together again for lunch or a movie. One of my favorite parts of the trip was sitting next to you during the movie ;-) Fun times.
