Weekend Fun

Happy Monday all! So instead of sharing a card with you today i thought that i would share with you some pictures of my scrabooking/crafing weekend that my awesome momma and i went to this past weekend!  What it is, is a bunch of great ladies who get together and do nothing but work on whatever crafting project they want... scrapbooking, card making, sewing, quilting... eating... sleeping... whatever;)

The owner, whose name is Laura Greenfelder, has taken 2 old churches (she has 2 different locations) and transformed them into fabulous crafting locations.  We go there early Friday morning and we leave sometime early Sunday afternoon.  Within that time we do nothing but craft, eat and lounge around in our crafting "comfy" clothes and enjoy great conversation and stories.

The retreat that we were in this time, (our group that goes alternates between each of the 2 locations.  In May we always go to the second location, the one that we were at now, and in October we head on over to the other location ((the first building that transformed)), holds up to 24 crafty ladies.  Here you can see that it is cozy but yet you still have plenty of room to walk around and spread out!!  There is a little section (that i wasn't able to snap a picture of) that is made to be like another little scrap place which fits a small group of 4 people.  It has it's own separate kitchen, bathroom and bedrooms.

Since the retreat was once an old church, you will find a lot of the natural elements of the church are still being used.  Maybe not as what they were first intended but i think that is what makes it that much more great!! Above is a picture of part of the kitchen, i took it because, you can't really tell but all the tables are made out of old doors that used to be used in the church!  I just thought that was such a great idea!!!!!!!  Plus see the quilt in the back?  There are such beautiful quilts that are hung all over the retreat not only are you there to get crafty but you sometime feel as though you are in an art show surrounded by such beautiful creations!!!

My mom and i always go to the crops together.  One never goes without the other (accept for one time when she went without me because i had just had my daughter).  It is out mother/daughter weekend that i look sooooo forward too every May and October!! She is such an awesome mother and more than that... friend!!!!  We spend our weekend joking, laughing and bouncing ideas off of each other.  When we put both our heads together, we come up with some great ideas and creations!!!

While we were there i spent 99% of the time working on starting my daughter's book.  As you can probably guess her name is Emma, lol:)  I wanted to share this with you because this is a sneak peek at one of the awesome new punches that is coming out in the new 2013-2015 Annual Catalog beginning May 31st!  Isn't it fabulous?!?!?!?!? I am having sooo much fun playing with some of the new items and look forward to sharing them with you!!! You are all going to LOVE the new catalog, it is stocked full of some great new items!!!

Well all, that is my share for today! I hope you all enjoyed a little peek into my crafting weekend!  Until next time...
