October Make and Take Craft Weekend

Can I just say, what an amazing group of ladies we had this weekend and how awesome the weekend was! I'm totally bummed it's over! We had so much fun getting to know each other, laughing together, watching everyone's different creative styles come to life, shopping together and sharing yummy meals together.

Goodie Bags

Friday night we settled in with dinner at the farm tables, then it was off to the Craft Room to begin our ruffle bags and to start on the mason jar vases. The ladies all came up with such awesome combinations for their ruffles. I love to see all the colors and prints that are put together, it's always very inspiring!

Saturday morning, after a make your own waffle breakfast, we headed out to do a little shopping. Our first stop was The Vintage Farmhouse, which has such great stuff and it's always changing so you never know what you might find! Our next stop was Tanglewood Cottage, that has one of a kind bigger pieces which I would love to add to my house! Lunch was at The Blue Duck and was delish as usual, then the ladies walked around downtown for a bit and did some more shopping.

Back at the Craft House we jumped right in with the next round of crafting. Dinner was thrown in the mix along with cheering the Cardinal's on to a victory! These ladies were pretty serious about their crafting and worked so hard but we still had a lot of laughs together.
