i have been to many crafting retreats over the years and this is definitely one of the best. The owner has thought of everything. There was comfortablyenough room for 10 of us and because there is an awesome "stash" of paper, punches, big shot dies and basic scrapbooking supplies it meant that WE didn't have to haul everything from home...phew...

LOVED my visit to Craftaway. This is the premier site for paper crafters. Anna has thought of everything! From the studios, to the bathrooms, to the kitchen, all were fully stocked with supplies for a terrific stay. The beds were super comfy, the bathrooms were well stocked and had great water pressure, the studio had great wi-fi and all tools...

Anna and her place are awesome! The drive from Plano was lovely and quick. Just make sure you don't have your windows open when driving by the landfill. :o) The house was beautiful!

This was my 3rd time packing my crafting stash and heading to Craftaway. WOW! could say it all, but I must give some details, as this one word 'WOW' has so much behind it.

Craftaway Studios was by far a breath of fresh air for this city girl. It was a hectic week and although I couldn't join up on Friday night, the nice not-so-far scenic drive was amazing. Rolling meadows, cows, the occasional horse and I might add even a nice little elk and deer farm caught my eye too! The serene quiet...

Loved our weekend scrapping at the Craftaway Studios. The STASH was an awesome amenity to have. The snack bar was great for the late night/early morning of 3:00 am when you needed to move and get new ideas and just needed a "sugar boost." The best part was the chairs were SO comfortable while sitting and the bed was perfect...
