THE BIG EVENT- NEXT YEAR, 2012 : a get-together for GardenTenders has snowballed and I decided that it might as well be an event for all of our CreativeHands sites: LumberJocks, GardenTenders, HomeRefurbers.

Location: MsDebbieP’s – Southwestern Ontario, Canada (Brant County Region)

Date: To be determined .. early-mid September, 2012 (Sunday, Sept. 9th?)

  • There is room for trailers in the laneway
  • There are also many hotels just 1/2 hour away and a trailer park just 5 minutes away.
  • gardening talk, woodworking talk
  • lots of food
  • sharing stories, how to’s
  • and?

anyone think they might attend?

I’ll be mentioning it throughout the year and next.

If you can’t make it for the get-together but are in the area, let me know and you can stop by on your way through :)

Thats on my way home ! (Everything I enjoy is on my way home, somehow)
Only problem is 2012 is so far away,
FIRST my memory (I will forget by then)
SECOND my health (I ‘ll probably be … then)
THIRD there cannot be an auction sale that day !!!!!
Keep us posted Debbie.

Sounds like a blast. Heck of a road trip from here about 1300 mile trip. Definitely will take some planning to be there. Look forward to hearing more about it.

I can’t Deb, in Canada I’m considered an undesirable because I had a DUI back in 1973. I could get dispensation for $250.00, that’s just temporary. For a permanent one it would cost $500.00. I’m considered a felon there. I’ve been to Ontario too 15-20 times prior to them making that law. Get the Law changed and I’ll be there. Promise. hugs, mike
