Announcing the Theme for Spring Retreat

We are thrilled to announce the theme for the Spring Crafter’s Retreat: Shine Bright! Esther and I picked the theme for this retreat last fall. It spoke to both of us immediately and we knew we had to run with it. Sometimes the world can seem like a dark place, but we all have a light that shines and we can choose to be a light-bringer to those dark places. Despite the busyness of our lives, we still manage to make time for our families and friends. We take a meal to a sick neighbor, help our children with their homework, and go to lunch with a friend. We smile at a stranger in the grocery store and encourage a despondent

Life is Beautiful

We live in a crazy, busy world. Each day is filled from morning to night with activities. We live each day going from one activity to the next. Sometimes we are able to step back for a minute and reflect on our lives. In a recent reflection the thought came to my tired, worn out mind……life is beautiful. Even though life can be draining and exhausting, there are moments that are amazing and beautiful. Our theme for this fall retreat is “Life is Beautiful. Enjoy the Ride.” I have always been so amazed that even in our most trying, pain-filled times that if we look… if we search, we can find beauty. It is all around us. I think back

Meet Geri

We are so excited to have Geri teach a beading class at our Fall Retreat! She makes phenomenal jewelry and is extremely talented! Here are a few fun tidbits about her. Hi, My name is Geri Allred and I worked closely with Heather Clark at PGi. She got me started with scrapbooking and introduced me to her wonderful sister and mom. We laughed so hard every retreat that my stomach would get sore. I am grateful to continue to be a part of the fun Idaho group of talented ladies! I started making jewelry about 10 years ago with my Aunt Kay. We get together weekly to hand stitch jewelry together, talk about designs, and practice Tai Chi. As you can see

My Favorite Part of Our Last Retreat

There are many amazing aspects of Ruby Bucket Retreat. Walking into a beautifully decorated retreat is so fun and exciting. Receiving a lovely welcome gift and eating delicious treats is delightful. Shopping in the Ruby Bucket Boutique and finding just the perfect gift to buy is thrilling. All of these things are so fun, amazing and unique. But the most amazing part of our last retreat, for me, was our raffle. We had one of our sweet ladies contact us about donating a quilt and holding a raffle in honor of our dear friend, Heather.  Let me tell you about our dear Heather. First, Heather Clark is the sister of my Ruby Bucket co-host, Stephanie. Heather and Stephanie are Malad
