some girls drove hundreds of miles.
some girls even flew thousands of miles.
me? i walked 50 feet across the street.
for what you ask?
(we were laughing with you waffle, not at you)catch up with.
to some people i know it sounds a little sketchy to be hanging out with people you meet on the internet,
but they were all awesome...like we had known each other for years.
my neighbor meg hosted all of us for a three-day crafting extravaganza.
it was a giant slumber party...
funny stories, crafting in PJ's, eating all the wrong (but delish) stuff, staying up super late, sleeping in.
this needs to be my job. :)
we made 3 different crafts...
julie taught us how to make these awesome flower necklaces.
a rainbow one...
they were these uber cute artsy embroidery hoops.
this was mine.
not this time...i probably sat for 30 minutes just staring at all the fabrics and felt.
i felt very overwhelmed, which is SO not me.
i finally just kept throwing stuff together til i liked it.
for once i felt a little out of my comfort zone of crafting...which turned out to be good for me.
i love how everyone's came out completely different.
this is the one i made.
i was lucky enough to have a mom who taught me when i was super little. thanks mom!
jess gave everyone ruffled pillow envy when we saw hers.
it was so full and so soft.
(meg's blog has links to all the tutorials)
i have a feeling i will be adding ruffles to everything around here.
i'm sure craig will just love that. :)
we even took a field trip to a great antiques store that even has a huge barn full of goodness.
she was so stink'n adorable in her dress and bonnet.
i just wanted to make sure you out of staters didn't think that's how us kansas folk dress everyday. :)
everyone found lots of goodies to take home.
how could you not? look at all this stuff.
-to all the fabulous women who were there... jess, kimberlee, heather, julie, meg, amy, ashleyann, cindy, & jana.
thank you for the fun weekend.
it is something i will never forget.
i feel as though i have been blessed by meeting each and everyone of you.
you were all awesome,
and you are all so wonderfully creative & kind.
thanks to all of you, i am officially addicted to crafting retreats & enrolling in space camp.
..so when's the next one?
