We have tried to keep costs to a minimum, but as you can appreciate, if you are taking something of value home or giving as a gift, there must be a cost involved.

Please make sure you place your order and money ON TIME…that is; no later than Sunday September 7th to Sister Holder, Sister Websdane or if in Duncraig Ward, Sister Kilday or Sister Speed.

Friends are welcome as usual, but they too must have ordered and paid for any classes on or before the due date in order to participate.

We are also requesting your fave Christmas Treat recipes to be emailed to for possible inclusion into our “Twelve Treats of Christmas” Recipe book or CD. The winning twelve will be selected by our judges panel whose decision is final and no correspondance will be entered into!!

We hope that you will bring a sample of the recipe of your choice on the day to share for morning and/or afternoon tea. Lunch will be provided.

If you have any further queries please comment on the site or ask the powers that be…(as mentioned above!!)

Well…how was that? Pampered enough were we? I think so.
A great big thank you to all our willing specialists,

Roger the Tai Chi Master, Bill the Back Expert, Caitlin, Bath Products Extraordinaire, Hamish, King of the Juice Machine, (and part time Pool Boy) Marie-Ann the Beauty Queen, and Lisa the Mobile Skatt Meister! Also thanks to the Resort Hosts, Bishop and Sister Richard.

They even got rid of the kids!!! (Now that’s pampering!!)
Honorable Mentions to those Muffin Providores…some of which were marginally healthy, and Maxine outdid herself with a batch of Friands (posh muffin, for the uniniated!!)
We had a great turn out, and also all went home with a veritable feast of Pampered Pressies! (Yes…chocolate WAS involved!)
I will post recipes as they come in. (Bath bomb recipe to follow.) My muffin recipe will be on my recipe site soon and I will post a link here…(mine were the Chocolate, cream cheese ones).
Once again, thanks to all those who worked so hard to make this a great success…and stay tuned for the next Enrichment…we’re thinking Midnite Madness, Get Ready for Christmas Early!! YIKES, yes really, I mentioned Christmas because if the second half of the year goes as fast as this first half, we’ll all be decorating a tree before we know it!

1 1/2 cups baking soda
3/4 cup citric acid
2 tspns essential oil
2 tspns natural food colouring
Optional: herbal tea or lavender seeds or such – for added texture

Mix dry ingredients together first, then add in the oil and food colouring.
Put into ice cube containers or muffin tray, squish down to make it really compact.
Leave overnight.

This should make about 20 small bombs
