Reflections Retreat is honored to welcome Scrapbook Royalty to our event. Scrapbook Royalty is a non-profit organzation dedicated to raising money and awareness for other charities through unique scrapbooking and crafting events. They will be hosting a silent auction to benefit the American Heart Association on Friday night at the Isle Carnival. Did you know that heart disease is the #1 killer among women? Click here for more facts about women and cardiovascular disease. Along with some great auction items that we have collected from manufacturers, we are asking Reflections participants to be a part of this special silent auction by bringing a handmade item for us to auction off. This is optional and everything handmade is welcome! Minibooks, jewelry, pottery, paintings, set of cards, skies the limit! To help us with checking items in, it would be helpful to have a description and value ahead of time. These can be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org. We will prepare auction bidding sheets and assign you a number so that when you arrive, you can just drop your item off. We are happy to take items at the event as well! We know you are all creative souls and we can't wait to see how much we can raise from your "works of heart!" Whoever's item raises the most money will be crowned Queen of Crafts and presented with a Tiara and gift.
