Have you ever walked into a place and felt like you have just entered a whole different world?
When you walk into www.GetCraftyStudios.com it feels like you have entered a whole different world! A place where you can relax and just be yourself. A place where you totally lose track of time and what is going on in the outside world, I have so much fun that I totally forget about all of the chores that need to be done and phone calls that need returned. Creativity abounds, inspiration is all around and friends gather to relax and just have fun!
The Get Crafty Studios staff takes care of all of the chores and do not forget any details. From providing a clean resort to cooking fabulous meals and even turning down the beds each night! The idea behind the scrapbook retreats at Get Crafty Studios is to crop ‘till ya drop and be pampered so that you can go back into the “real world” refreshed!
The weekends at Get Crafty Studios are designed as a place for women to get away from the “real world” and have uninterrupted time to work on their scrapbooks and spend time with friends, as well as make new friends! The weekends are unstructured time for ladies to be comfortable and scrapbook or craft, you can even stay in your pajamas all day if you wish! Leave your watch at home because the Get Crafty Studios staff will do all of the cooking and cleaning for you!
The focus of the weekend is of course the scrapbooking. Large tables are provided, with plenty of room for you to set up all of your supplies and have plenty of room to scrap. Each scrapbooker brings her own supplies, however, loads of great tools are available at the studio for everyone to use, including a Sizzix die cut machine with over 6 different fonts and many more dies,Quickcuts, lots of punches, computer, printer, scanner, sewing machine, light table, heat embossing gun, paints, stamps and much more. Supplies, including a large selection of paper, diecuts, stickers, adhesives and embellishments are also available for sale at very reasonable prices.
The food at the studio is always a big hit. The best part being that you don’t have to cook it! The food that is served at the studio cafe is so popular that guests have requested a recipe section on the studio website! When you stay for the weekend you get 5 meals. Breakfast is continental with great choices. Lunch and dinner are favorite recipes that have been collected by the studio staff.
The Get Crafty Studio and Resort is housed in a charming brick building in the heart of historic downtown Parkersburg, WV. Diana, a frequent weekend guest of the studio, says the accomodations are very cozy and it truly feels like you have entered a different world where you can relax and be inspired to scrapbook. Lori, from Largo, FL, summed it up by saying, “Get Crafty Studios has the best location and facilities, it is great to crop as late as you want and get great food too.”
Each of the bedrooms at the studio are lovingly decorated with creative inspiration and relaxation in mind. “The rooms are just so beautiful and fun” is a sentiment expressed regularly by guests of the studio. Christina, one of the founders of Get Crafty Studios, says that the bedrooms were decorated to inspire creativity and rest. Christina also stated that the guests regularly comment on the decor of the studio and how much it inspires their creativity. “We have even had guests try our room color combinations on their scrapbook pages. They especially love the striped wall in the crop room!”
