Meet the Owner

linda-bioWhen we moved from our Penthouse apartment located in a 125 year old remodeled building in downtown La Porte to our home in the country, we debated what to do with the apartment. Being an avid scrapbooker for over fourteen years, and one who loves going away on retreats, I could not think of a better place to open my own business.
With the support and guidance from my loving husband, The Penthouse Retreat located in this beautiful rehabbed building became a reality and a dream come true for me….being in business for myself while incorporating my favorite hobby. The Retreat gives women a place to get away for a weekend to work on whatever hobby they may have – it does not need to be scrapbooking. While it also gives me a place to hold classes, workshops and my Close to My Heart Scrapbook Clubs.
After opening the Retreat, it only made sense for me to become a consultant for Close to My Heart. This allows to me provide scrapbooking and stamping supplies to those who scrapbook/stamp either through orders or by having some products on hand so the ladies don’t have to leave once they are there if they don’t want to.
There is free Wi-Fi service along with a wireless color photo printer (that a
lso takes SD cards), that allows the women to print off photos right there without having to run to Wal-Mart or one of the local drug stores.
Be sure to check out the rest of the website to see all we have to offer. Then line up your friends, choose a date and then contact Linda for availability and further information.
