A true 4.5-star pampering weekend away from it all! Come and join us for 3 full days in the beautiful Adelaide Hills where we will be creating some amazing projects using Mintay products. Your whole kit will be provided, and full instructions, including video tutorials and assistance will be given throughout the 3 days.


This weekend is all about leaving the hustle and bustle behind to enjoy calm, positive time and serenity while you create. There will be no set agenda so you can craft and create your projects at your own pace. This way, you will have time to relax, learn and have fun while creating beautiful, designed projects in your own time.You can choose to make as much or as little as you want. Everything you need will be in your kits so you can finish at home if you wish.We will be using products from the Mintay collection. (Project(s) to be announced).


You will receive a Goody Bag with all the designed projects kits, embellishments and full instructions to create. And some other surprises. I will be there to help with any questions or techniques too!


You will be given a project booklet with all the set projects and full instructions to keep. There will also be video tutorials recorded on a private Facebook page for you to access during and after the event.


Your fabulous weekend begins on Friday whatever time you can arrive. Craft room opens at 10am. Morning tea will be served at 10.30am (it can be put aside for you if need be). Your table will be ready waiting for you to unpack your tool kit plus all your goodies from your Goodie Bag. Everything you need will be in there.

You can explore the Resort Park by taking a leisurely walk around the grounds, sit and relax with a cup of tea or get started on your projects. There will be samples on display so you can see what the completed project(s) will look like.

There will be internet access so you can also log into our private Facebook group or my YouTube videos to watch the tutorial videos.


Those who know me, know that I LOVE to spoil you and try to make your weekend as special as possible. There will be prizes, pillow gifts, games, and other sweet surprises for you throughout the weekend.
