Event description

Hello Scrapbooking & Crafting Friends!

Happy Valley Conference Center, nestled between Santa Cruz and Scotts Valley, is the perfect destination for you to do the things YOU love to do! There is NO agenda for the weekend except for YOUR agenda! The food is fantastic, the setting serene, and the focused time away, invaluable! Come scrapbook, stamp, sew, knit, paint... Whatever makes your heart happy! Check out this YouTube video for a glimpse into your weekend escape! (

The basic retreat is Friday at 3pm-Sunday at 3pm and costs $320. You can add an early Friday arrival option for an additional $35 (which includes 9am arrival and lunch on Friday), or a Thursday 3pm arrival option for an additional $120 (which includes lodging on Thursday night, as well as breakfast and lunch on Friday).

Your retreat cost includes all meals (starting with dinner Friday, unless you have chosen an early-arrival option), accommodations in rooms that sleep 2-4** guests, and a full 6' table for executing your craft. Check out for more info on this great venue!

Your minimal on-line deposit of $25 here on Humantix is NON-REFUNDABLE, but will be applied to the final cost of your retreat. Once you have registered, I will send you an invoice with your final bill and detailed info on how to make your final payment. 

Final payments will be due by SEPTEMBER 1, 2023. Feel free to make payments of smaller amounts between now and then, if that is helpful.

CANCELLATION POLICY: NO refunds of deposits will be given.*** Once your payment has been made in full, you can receive a FULL refund (minus the $25 deposit) up until one month prior to retreat, a 50% refund until two weeks prior to the retreat, and no refunds can be given within two weeks of the retreat start date. If you test positive with Covid within 5 days of or upon arrival at the retreat, I can offer a partial credit towards a future retreat.


Feel free to let me know if you have any questions! Hope to see you this spring!
