Holly Kaster
Hi, I’m Holly. I guess you can consider me a seasoned scrapbooker. I've been scrapbooking for over 15 years and was a scrapbooking demonstrator for 8 years. I was also a Stampin' Up! demonstrator for 2 years. I have experience in organizing large scrapbooking events and love to try new techniques. I left my full time job as an Auto Body Designer at General Motors for my dream job - a stay at home Mom to our adopted daughter, Grace and one of the owners of Cropping Daze Retreat. By pure miracle, our biological son arrived in January 2008 - a wonderful surprise to us all! I reside in Brown City with my husband (and soul mate) Brian, our children (Grace and Mac), a wonderful black lab (Sadie), two cats and a barn full of chickens. I really look forward to the weekends I work at Cropping Daze and treasure all the wonderful people I am lucky enough to meet there. I am one of the fortunate people in life who actually LOVE their job. I can't wait to meet you!
Phyllis MacLeod
I am the retiree of the group– at least I retired for 5 years, until the call of having a scrapbooker’s dream retreat became an obsession. Thus, Cropping Daze Retreat, Inc., became a reality. I have been an avid scrapbooker for almost 11 years and always looked for places that would afford me a whole table to myself! I have enjoyed our guests immensely and look forward to meeting even more scrapbookers and other hobbyists in the coming year, as well as welcoming back returning guests. I am a widow, with 3 grown children, 6 grandchildren ranging in age from 31 to 3 years, and 7 great-grandchildren.
Dawn Timoszyk
Hello, I'm Dawn! My husband and I have two precious little girls at home that keep me busy. I have been an avid scrapbooker for 9 years and just love all of the memories I have preserved for my daughters. I wanted to create a weekend retreat that would provide all of the things that we, hard working women, would love. I am looking forward to another year of meeting new friends and taking care of all of you during your stay with us. See you soon.
