Your getaway week-ends sound fabulous. When I finish chemo treatment I would love to be rewarded with one of your week-ends. Would love to be with Rebecca Sower in class sometime. I love taking classes from Kaari. Maybe I can make that one. Thank you so much for your inspiration.

Barbara Bennett

I hope to come to one of your retreats one day as they sound wonderful. I was fortunate to have met Rebecca Sower at the very first CKU in Provo, Utah in 2001. I was in her 'Storytime' class. I also love her book, "Scrapbooking Life's Little Moments" and her blog. All of your artists are so very talented and generous to share with us!
