the craft girls all arrived….everybody flew in.  :)

we ate a yummy dinner.
and cheesecake.

we have made one craft so far….much more to come.

and the bathroom was finished at noon friday afternoon.
the ladies came at 4.
ha ha ha …..nothing like a DEADLINE to get stuff D O N E.
our contractor and craig worked so hard to get that accomplished…..awesome.
it's hard to get a picture with my lens….but i am in love in here.

ok….it's 2:44 so i think i better go to sleep.


CRAFT WEEKEND is too much fun.

and i have 11 new friends!!!!



sherry f - Seeing all these pcitures makes my heart so happy. I have for years wanted to do this for some of us Christian adoptive mommies who just need a weekend to refresh and refuel and create…LOVE this..I pray one day I can come your way.

Shari Barnes - Where did you get that striped shower curtain?? I must have it!!!

Victoria - Love how you set everything up! It is beautiful. Your blog with the colors, fabrics and textures make me so happy to look at. 🙂
By the way, love your family picture canvas with the frame over it on the mantel!

Arielle - So I know it’s super random to say something reminded me of you seeing as how we’ve never actually met, I just “know” you through your blog, but I saw this on Pinterest and instantly thought of you. Looks like so much fun!

Lin - I am jealous. I would love to spend a few days crafting. I love the new shower curtain by the way.

rachel / - i love looking at all the tiny details & can’t wait to see the rest of the photos from the weekend!!! your new shower curtain is awesome & am considering getting the yellow & white version of it for our bathroom redo!!!! thanks for the heads up!

Linda - Your home looks so happy!

Kristin S - I just want to stare at that tablescape all day long!

JulieL - The bathroom looks great and so does the crafting space all ready to go! Can’t wait to see pics of the weekend and what you ladies made. I read your blog and Ashley Ann’s so I can’t wait to see what you both post this coming week.

kelly - love love your blog. i’ve been checking back like a crazy person to see if you’ve posted pictures of craft weekend yet. i can’t wait to see what y’all did!!!

Vera - Looks like so much fun!!
Hey, I wanted to let you know (and am too tired/lazy to find your rainbow cake post to leave this comment on there) – I have a little rainbow cake trick… I never loved the purple on mine, until I made one yesterday (you can click on my blog if you want to see) and I used PINK and blue (and just a little bit of red) instead of red and blue food coloring and it turned out to be a much prettier, brighter color purple! 🙂

crystal b - you got a ruffler!! and look at all the machines! cool. The decor looks so cute. Hope you had a blast and that you aren’t too exhaused.

Lora - Meg…
Statement: Your bathroom is awesome! I LOVE it.
Question: How can we get into one of your Craft Weekends?

Janine - Your bathroom looks fantastic. And so does craft weekend. The bunting and the lights are adorable. I would love to go to one but my family would think I was insane flying half way across the country to craft with “strangers”. I put strangers in quotes because I feel like I have gotten to know you and Ashley Ann from your blogs. For now I’ll just have to look at the pics of all the cool kids having fun and making awesome crafts. I hope you and all the ladies are having a great time!

Sarah H. - Oh, my heart is hurting b/c I wish I was there with my friend Kimberly! Aahhh!!!
I so hope you all have an absolute blast this weekend. Everything (including your bathroom) looks fabulous!

Sarah - I must know. Where or where did you get the shower curtain? You maybe already posted that and I missed it but I can’t live without it 🙂

Jacci - Love the dining room all set up for craft weekend. i need my living room to look like this all winter 🙂 no one could have the “gray day blues” in a room like that!
and I really like the shower curtain and color scheme in the bathroom. The pattern of the stripes is cheerful and high energy, even though it’s not a bright color.
I’m a neutrals-with-pops-of-color gal, and I’ll be interested to see how this room gets more Duerksenized over time. I like the neutrality a ton, but I have a hunch some crepe paper rainbow or polka dot towel is gonna creep in there at some point 😉
You’ve really outdone yourself on this dining room prep. This is just about the most charming thing ever. I totally want to come to a future CW. Last night, though, I gave my sweet baby and bath and rocked her to sleep. No regrets 🙂
Have a wonderful time!!!!!

kribss - I want first dibs on your next craft weekend! Looks like a great time : )

Kimberly Dial - It’s my goal to one day be able to attend Craft Weekend … enjoy! (BTW, your bath looks fabulous!)

Penny - Beautiful bathroom! Can’t wait to see more pictures from your CW. I belong to a craft club. Great friends. We meet once a month (sometimes twice) and craft. We rotate homes and have great snacks. We are hoping to maybe do a weekend one of these months. It would be so much fun.
Wishing you lots of fun ladies!!

Terrie G - LOVE your bathroom! Does that sound the least bit funny or weird to you?? lol!!
CW looks super cute & very festive!
Have a lovely time!!
Happy CrAfTinG!!
