craft getaway weekend

Matt and I made it a goal to give each other a weekend away each year to do whatever we’d like.

This year, I chose to host a Craft Getaway weekend at our house.  I did it several years ago, and it’s one of my favorite things.  And it always ends up being with some of my favorite people.  (okay, and favorite food… and of course, crafts.)

Bestie Lacey got to come help host – she’s the hostess with the mostest.  I love sharing a mutual gift of hospitality with her. (yay Lacey)

Blah blah blah… if you’re interested in coming to the next one (sometime whenever that is) I’ll let the pictures speak for themselves.  It was an ultimate blast of treats, crafts, great friends, pajamas, girlie movies, yummy food, homemade cheesecake, good convos, antique shopping and did I mention good food?



Cheesecake. Yes please. With a side of Miss Congeniality.IMG_0145_s

Craft 1: Tote Bags


Craft 2: Reclaimed Wood Signs


Craft 3: Hand Stamped Jewelry



A little shopping before dinner…


So, if your napkin comes with a button hole in it, is it just for decoration or is it for making a bib?  Any etiquette experts out there?


… and sweet friends donated their goodies for our SWAG: the best decorated sugar cookies you’ll ever eat (and cute too!) compliments of Cay Bolin, and cutie cute hand-painted, hand-lettered signs by Lori Redfearn at Letters by Lori (check her out on Instagram).  Thank you so much, ladies, for contributing to our weekend!


Lace – thanks for hosting with me!

Suz – thanks for coming all the way from Africa just for this.

Carrie – thanks for sharing your peg people talents with us!

Until next time, my ladies. I cherished each moment!
