As Ruby gets older and engages in more creative play and art projects, I'm always on the look out for fun ways we can spend time together as a family while expanding her imagination. Crafting Community hosts a once-a-year weekend-long event in Palm Springs, CA where families gather together for a few days for crafting, food, sunshine, pool time, and a while lot of family fun. I've been wanting to go for years, and this year we're finally going!

So today, we've partnered with Crafting Community to give away a family package to come to the annual crafting retreat (at the Ace Hotel Palm Springs from May 1-3, 2015) to one lucky reader and their family. The package is worth $1800 and includes:

- (2) night stay (accommodations, resort fees + taxes)

- (2) days of art workshops (more than 20!) led by renowned artists

- (2) days of recreation activities led by professional instructors

- All food and beverages

- A custom Crafting Community tote filled with premium goodies!

- Sunrise yoga + complimentary bike rentals + game night

- Unlimited pool access and a ton more fun activities (see the full list right here!)
