Welcome to Hibernate & Create – Connecting and Inspiring Creatives! 
We are so glad you found us! 

Our History:  Hibernate and Create started in January 2016 as the “31 Days of Creativity Challenge.”  Kelli’s goal was to hibernate from the cold Nebraska weather and utilize the first 31 days of the year to finish some of her art & crafts projects and start a few new ones!  She quickly realized that if she needed motivation, so would others.The challenge has blossomed into a beautiful Facebook community of individuals from across the United States and Canada.   If you’d like to join this wonderful group of inspirational spirits, click here. We’d love to have you join us to share your creative activities and support others.  


Hibernate and Create took the next step in January 2018, where with the encouragement of the Facebook group, the first Hibernate & Create RETREAT was hosted in Omaha, Nebraska at the Hot Shops Art Center.  We had so much fun working on our projects and taking courses from guest instructors, that it has become an annual creative gathering.

In 2019 we added the Overnight Retreat experience to the line-up.  Our first retreat was hosted at The Whatever Craft House in Kansas.  The overnight retreats are always on the move!  2020 brought the retreat to Kelli’s home state of Nebraska and plans are now underway for an overnight retreat in 2021 in Mexico!
