Let’s Create Together at the Whatever Craft House | Creative Soul Camp!

I would love to create, shop and just hang out with you in Kansas this fall!  I will be teaching for Stephanie Ackerman in her fall Creative Soul Camp! You can register HERE.
This is from Stephanie Ackerman.
There is something amazing that happens when Art & Faith Collide and when you are in an amazing house full of women, food, coffee, snacks, paints and time to be quiet, restore, rest, stay up late, wake up early, wear your jammies all day long.
It’s just really good.
That is the best way to explain it because honestly, there are not words to go along with what happens…and ya know what else?  Jesus shows up every.single.time.
What’s Included??
Each day you will get to enjoy amazing and fresh meals prepared just for you. Yep, three meals a day so be ready to eat.  Leave your diets at home and bring your stretchy pants.  In between, there will be a ridiculous array of salty and sweet snacks and apples, coffee, water and tea with bags of sonic ice of course.
The Craft House is located in Newton, Kansas.  It is an amazing 100-year-old restored home that is used for retreats and sleeps 17. Upstairs there are four beautifully decorated bedrooms.  Each room has between 2 – 6 twin beds.  It will be hard to pick just one because they are each crazy cute. Be prepared for late night giggles and some early rising roommates.  There are three full bathrooms that will be shared.
Creative Time & Supplies 
Everything you will need for the creative sessions will be provided.  IF you have a Journaling Bible and/or an art journal that you would like to work in, please bring that.  Tip: You may want to keep a little extra space in your suitcase for the projects you create.
Airport Transportation & Pick Ups
You will be picked up on Thursday afternoon at 4:30 pm and dropped off on Sunday morning to Wichita Eisenhower Airport.  Please arrange to arrive by 4:30 pm the day of the retreat and schedule your departure for after 12:00 pm on the last day of the retreat.  If you are planning to drive to the retreat, we ask that you plan to arrive no earlier than 5:00 pm on the day the retreat begins.
Field Trip
During the retreat, there is a fun ½ field trip planned to head out to two local Antique shops & The Barn. Again, extra space in your suitcase and a little extra cash is recommended for this day!
Daily Routine
At the beginning of each day and at the end of each night we will have a devotional and discussion time. There will be a creative session on Friday & Saturday with lots of supplies to play with each evening. There will be plenty of time for naps, walks and you will even be able to schedule an in-house massage if you would like.  Note: Retreat registration does not include massage fee.

    Hi Jeanne,

    Can you please give me some idea of how much of this is art lessons/workshops? What will we be doing? I’m really considering this, but need to weigh the tremendous cost with what’s included in my considerations.

    Thank you so much!
