It’s mid-February. The temperatures have been cold, warmed up and frozen over again. The respite from Christmas Break is long ago spent and the weeks until Spring Break seems to be too many.
Diagnosis: Mid-winter funk. Rx: Scrapbook and spa getaway at Crop-A-Doodle-Do in Arcadia, Indiana, less than an hour north of Indianapolis.
So pack up your shoe boxes full of photos. Bring your binders of stickers. Grab some girlfriends and make a weekend of it. Once you schedule your getaway, you are in for the scrapbooking adventure of your life. You’ll find terrific workspaces — 4 feet per person!; the use of tools such as die-cut machines, large and small paper cutters, stamps, pens, punches; drink and trash caddies at each station; and wireless internet.
If you’ve ever been on an overnight scrapbook adventure, you know that by the second day, your neck and shoulders might start feeling it. Those late night hours of “just one more layout” can catch up with you. That’s where Crop-A-Doodle-Do’s spa services come in.
Choose from a collection of “Ultimate” services: manicure, pedicure, massage or facial, offered in the private spa room. Each service is provided by certified spa technicians and is paid for separate from your accommodations fee.
Packages — from one to four days — include home-cooked and catered meals, snacks and drinks. Alcoholic beverages are not provided, though guests are welcome to bring their own. Rates range from $59 plus tax per person for a one-day “Day in the Country,” to $479 plus tax per person for a four-day all-inclusive getaway. Discounts are available for groups of six or more.
Crop-A-Doodle-Do can host up to 11 guests at a time. Sleeping rooms range from two-person to five-person rooms. To schedule your getaway, visit the website or call (888) 317-CROP (2767).
