The Lodge at 6 Mile Lake is located in Bono, AR. All bedrooms and 2 full bathrooms are located downstairs. The event room, bathrooms and kitchen are located upstairs. Unfortunately, it is not handicap accessible. You only need to tackle the stairs once in the morning and once at night. You can click here to view their facebook page. Bed linens and towels provided. If you bring an air mattress, you'll need linens and towels.

All supplies will be provided. If you want to bring some of your own tools, you are welcome to do so. I will have space if you want to bring extra items to work on. I will also have additional project kits available for purchase at the event if you finish early and want to work on something else.

There will be iced tea, water, snacks, coffee available throughout the weekend. If you must have sodas, feel free to bring them! Let me know if you have food allergies or restrictions! If you want to bring some snacks as well, feel free - I never turn down extra food - lol!

We will also have an organized card swap and a stamp swap for those attending!

Stamp swap - Bring up to 5 stamp sets that you'd like to trade out, then check out what everyone brings. You only agree to swap stamps if you think it is fair. If you don’t like the trade (or offer), you can feel free to politely say “No Thank You” or offer something else (or in addition) to the offer and see if the other person takes you up on that counter offer. You might want to bring some extra embellishments to sweeten the deal. Swapping is entirely up to the individual and I will not be moderating any swapping.

Card Swap - We will have a special occasions themed card swap. Numbers will be emailed after the deadline. I will send out a sign up with occasions so we have just one per assigned per occasion. Or you can let me know when you register what occasion card you'd like to have. Examples are baby, wedding, sympathy, graduation, shower, get well, etc.

If you have any questions, please let me know. I'm super excited about this event and have been thinking about having one for years. If this goes well, we may schedule another one in the spring. If you'd like to register, you can email me at Thanks so much and I hope to hear from you soon!
