It’s the little things in life that make a difference. Every year with our Card making Retreat I realize again how precious friendships and life in general are. Every year for the past five years Tarryn and her Gran Shirley attend our camp. Every year I am amazed at their special bond and relationship and every year I go home thinking how much more I could have done for my grandparents and how much more I should have and could have appreciated them. If only I took gran for one more cup of tea or did something small for her instead of being afraid of what people would think. Every year with camp we have mother and daughters attending and you see the special bond they have and every time I think the same thing….
Every year I take camp for granted – getting home tired and having to unpack and repack and organize everything you used for your class. Then I think back on how appreciative the ladies are for everything they receive. Nothing is expected so every little thing that they receive is welcomed with open arms instead of resentment as to the amount of the actual gift. So a special thank you goes out to all our sponsors and those who gave gifts like Absolutely Scraptacular, Paper Crazy, Paper Enterprises, Scrapbook Direct, Scrap Sheets, Sogno Mio, Sunday Tribune, Glitter Factory, Carrots Crafts, Country Crafts, Great Impressions, Stamps Galore, Studio J and University of KwaZulu Natal.
Then our last minute sponsor who so generously and freely gave Scrapbookex! Thanks Glenda for all the marvelous things you gave away. The ladies all went home with a stunning Kaisercraft bag filled with STUFF!! Your generosity is much appreciated and that at the very last minute! Literally! Our annual card making competition at the camp went down really well with the winners who received stunning prizes. Well done Amanda de Jonge for winning…and that after last years’ fourth place – just goes to show how much you have improved your skills! To all the other ladies who attended and made camp a huge success – you know who you are – thanks a bunch! It seems like our humble little camp is getting status all around the country and growing with interest and stature each here! Well the same camp site has been booked for 2010…what was Carol thinking? Anyhow…see you all next year!
