What's Happening

MOTHER-DAUGHTER WEEKENDS - HERE ARE THE DATES!!
We have instituted a series of Mother-Daughter weekends in the summer months to provide an opportunity for you to get away with your daughter (bring aunties and grandmothers too!) for a weekend of fun, crafts, scrapbooking, and a chance to spend some time with your girls. We do not specify an age limit for this, but find that 8 olds and up will enjoy an entire weekend more than younger girls, but we leave that up to you. There are 4 or 5 crafts that are provided for the girls to do, and other times will be spent with their Mothers. A more kid-friendly menu is also provided. The price for TWO people is $400. DATES: June 23-25, July 28-30 (now SOLD OUT), and August 4-6. Make your reservation soon!

COMFY CHAIRS!
Make yourself comfortable with our comfy black leather chairs. They also swivel and move up and down for maximum adjustment for your scrapbooking pleasure.

LIKE US ON FACEBOOK!
We are on Facebook - check us out for updates to weekend availability, photos of guests and food, etc.

TAKE ADVANTAGE OF OUR EASY PAYMENT PLAN!
We know how hard it is to come up with a full payment at the time that you book - that is why we have an easy payment plan to help you budget your weekend. When you register and make your $65 deposit, you will receive a payment coupon sheet that will divide your remaining balance into four equal payments. You may make these payments any way you choose, as long as the entire balance is paid 30 days prior to your weekend. In addition to checks, debit cards and money orders, we accept Master Card, Visa, American Express, and Discover cards.

CAN'T WE COME ON THURSDAY?
How many times have we been asked, "Can't we come on Thursday?" We are now going to honor these requests IF 6 or more people schedule to come. This will be a "non-pampering" Thursday - you may check in as early as 3 p.m. on Thursday. Thursday dinner and Friday lunch will be your responsibility, but we will serve a snack at 11 p.m. Thursday and a light breakfast will be available from 9 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. on Friday morning. Your regular pampering will begin at the regular check-in time of 3 p.m. on Friday. There will be an early check-in hostess on site Thursday and Friday, and your regular team of hostesses will arrive Friday afternoon for the rest of the weekend. A nominal fee of $50 (no discounts or half-price for this day) will be added to your normal weekend fee of $280 for a total of $330. As noted above, six guests will be required to sign up in order for us to offer the Thursday check-in, or a minimum of $300. REGULAR WEEKENDERS MAY ARRIVE EARLIER ON FRIDAY, BUT WILL BE ASSESSED $5 PER HOUR FOR EACH HOUR BEFORE 3 P.M. ***If you sign up for early check-in, but do not attend, you will be charged for early check-in*** You will not believe how valuable this extra 24 hours can be!

PARTY TIME! Now accepting reservations for New Year's Party Weekend - Dec. 29 - 31, 2017!
Cropping Daze holds two fun parties each year - a celebration party for our anniversary each July (the closest weekend to July 12), and a grand celebration to bring in the new year. The weekends are filled with raffle prizes and special party treats on Saturday night. Send in your deposits now to hold your spot! Always check our website for possible openings - currently the entire weekend is open. The date for the New Year's party this year is December 29-31, 2017, which means you can still be home in time for New Year's Eve! Call or e-mail now for this super fun time!

CROPPING DAZE HOLDS PRICES FOR 2017
In consideration of the economic climate of Michigan, we have decided to hold our prices for 2016 at the 2009 level, $280. Although expenses continue to escalate, we want our guests to be able to enjoy the same level of quality food and hospitality that you are accustomed to, at the same price as 2009. Deposits will continue to be $65, non-refundable, with full payment due 30 days before your arrival.

YES YOU CAN BRING YOUR WIRELESS LAPTOP!
We have provided wireless internet access. Your laptop must have a wireless card to get on the internet. Our cropping room computer will remain off-line, so that more guests have a chance to journal and print their personal remarks. We hope you will enjoy having internet accessibility for your laptop computers, I-pads, and tablets.

CROPPING DAZE CONTINUES OUR HALF-PRICE PROGRAM
Cropping Daze Retreat is pleased to announce our half price program. When you stay 4 PAID WEEKENDS at Cropping Daze, the 5th weekend will be HALF PRICE! We appreciate your business and want to tell you so by extending this special offer. So come on back and visit us again...and again !

MASSEUSE AVAILABLE FOR EXTRA PAMPERING!
The services of an "in house" masseuse are available to those guests who desire that extra little bit of pampering. Please check out the Spa Services spot on the home page for details and prices. You can also check the website, atimtounwind@gmail.com.

EARLIER FRIDAY CHECK-IN TIME - 3 P.M.
In response to requests from past guests, we will now open the cropping room only at 3 p.m. so that you may bring in your things and get set up to scrapbook, quilt, sew, knit, chrochet, or bead. We will show you through the house proper and to your rooms at the regular check-in time of 5 p.m. This will allow you to get an earlier start, and it will still afford us the time to make the proper preparations for your weekend of pampering!

OTT-LITES FOR TRUE NATURAL LIGHTING
Whether you choose to scrapbook, bead, knit, crochet, quilt, or pursue any other hobby, you will appreciate the natural "Ott" table-top lighting at your station. Ott-Lites are a true, natural light that allows you to correlate your colors more effectively. Cropping Daze continually strives to bring our guests the best in equipment and services. We hope you enjoy the lighting.

HAVE A GIFT CERTIFICATE? RESERVE YOUR DATE NOW!
If you have a gift certificate or a reduced rate certificate to Cropping Daze, please make your reservation as soon as possible. These certificates are valid for a certain time frame only, and even our summer months are filling up quickly. We don't want you to be disappointed, so please pick a date and send in your registration A.S.A.P.!

CAN'T GET THE WEEKEND YOU WANT? PUT YOUR NAME ON A WAITING LIST -
Maybe that special weekend you wanted to scrapbook is filled at the moment. That doesn't mean it can't reopen!! Many of us receive wedding invitations, someone becomes ill, or other special events in life crop up that we don't know about a year ahead of time. Occasionally, someone has to reluctantly cancel their weekend, and that may be good news for you! If the weekend you want is filled, ask to have your name placed on a waiting list. If the weekend opens up, you will have the first chance to book. Check the website often to see openings as they occur.

TOOLS, TOOLS, AND MORE TOOLS
We are continually adding new tools for your cropping pleasure. We have recently added a Big Kick machine. We also have a Sidekick machine,12" border dies, and embossing plates. These new tools are in addition to the computer with its journaling programs, rubber stamps, decorative scissors, embossing tools, templates, punches, and much more. We also have a large library of scrapbooking magazines and books.

THE STORE
We have a quanity of embellishments, adhesives, paper, Cricuit mats, and other miscellaneous supplies available for sale. We also stock tee-shirts and other logo clothing. While most scrapbookers come with everything you can imagine, there are times when you may need just the right embellishment or shade/print of paper that you don't have with you. Our store is not fully stocked to the extent your favorite scrapbook store may be, but we try to save you a trip out if possible.

LOOKING FOR THE PERFECT GIFT?
It's never too late to purchase the perfect gift for your favorite scrapbooker! Just call 989-845-4700 to order a gift certificate, which we can e-mail to you or send by regular mail. Gift certificates have no expiration date, but are good for the weekend price listed on the certificate. Give a gift of a weekend of fun, relaxation, and a chance to be creative and productive. Birthdays, anniversaries, and Christmas are the perfect time to give a wonderful weekend experience to someone you love.

DATES OPENED
We have opened a series of dates for which we have received no registrations or deposits. We apologize to anyone who had originally reserved these dates, but unless you follow through with the appropriate deposit and registration, we cannot hold these dates for you. Even with return guests, we have found ourselves with unfilled spots because we trusted they would come and they decided at the last minute not to attend. We hope you appreciate that we must meet our obligations, and therefore we must use our facility to capacity to accomplish this.
