For each day we were there I made them a treat with a note!!

For Wednesday – 


A plastic tube with Swedish fish and gummi worms!! A second picture shows the whole thing –


For Thursday – 


Bag of M & M’s with a complimentary note!!

For Friday –


A tiny cello bag with a cute topper made from this die over at Avery Elle! Filled with yummy mini gummi bears!


For Saturday – 


A little thought with a couple of glow sticks to remind them to glow and be a light for others!!

And there you go – That was our retreat!!

I think it was fun and we all seemed to enjoy ourselves and get a few things done!!

    Every gift was just so sweet and fun, maybe a little “corny” but everybody likes that, right? It’s so nice to see all the fun ways we can be creative every single day! Great projects!

    These are so over the top adorable! Love all your punny sentiments. You have the best handwriting–It really should be made into a font. I love how for the gummy bear one you spelled out the word bear in matching rainbow colors. :)

    I hope you are pinning all your cute ideas to a board you create that has “my creations” on it. These are SO PIN WORTHY!! I love the fun sentiments you used, your presentation of the the goodies AND how you displayed them in this post. I so wish I had the mind to think up these adorable things like this but there is no way my mind works like this. EXCELLENT design!! And any time you want to come over, my door is open!! I would love you to help me clean (better yet-take home what I should not keep!!) and play with me!! It would be SO FUN!!

    You are so clever and creative with these retreat gifts, Taunya! I love the fun sayings and how they go so well with each of the gifts. I’m kind of partial to Swedish fish (the red ones, LOL) so that one caught my eye. :)
