Wildest Of Dreams

In my wildest dreams I could not have imagined what awaited me at the 7th PWA annual retreat! 

BornToBeadWild Just when I think I’ve seen it all, a whole new breed of fun finds it’s way through the jungle of my life and once again I find myself laughing so hard my sides hurt.  Smiling out loud, I mean really loud.  Sleeping as little as possible (so as not to miss anything good!)  Eating way too much (Blame Yvonne and Leola!) and even singing at the top of my lungs to the Mama Mia soundtrack with 13 other ladies and one lip syncer (You know who you are D*b!)  Okay, okay, okay, I know that this wasn’t everyone’s favorite moment, but it was one of mine, most definitely! Ü

So many inside jokes, scary stories and silly moments bonded our group together in a unique and special way.  I like to think that everyone got exactly what they needed that weekend, and a little bit more than what they expected.  I know I did!

I am in the process of editing the photos to upload and share but for now here are a few teasers……..

Brian hooked up his trailer and loaded all of our goodies inside… everything fit no problem!

PWA Transport This is the welcome mat that we put at the front door.  Pretty much sums up the PWA retreat code quite nicely, I think!

Welcome Mat

Here is an aerial view of some of the tables.  Gosh they look so full of fun stuff!!

Whenever beadie buds get together there is sure to be some kind of money business!

Monkey Business And if you weren’t addicted to Banangrams before the retreat, you’re sure to be now!

Bananagrams Mmmmmmm………  Leola baked fresh chocolate chip cookies for us!

Fresh Baked Cookies There were “healthy” snacks too…….  Ü

Good Snacks THere is always such interesting trash at these things……..  Ü

Interesting TrashHere is a bottle cap project by Mary Wallace!   (I’ll be posting more of the fun things that were made when more photos are ready to share.)

Marys Bottlecap Project Uh oh!  Who let Marion play with fire?????

Play With Fire Seriously??  I’m telling the truth that we did NOT plan this twins outfit and I wasn’t even aware of it until I got this photo from Susan!  LOL!!  But dang we are cute, don’tcha think?
