talby happened to be playing her final basketball game that day in Marion at the same time we were shoppping so i snuck out and cheered her on!  I was so happy to get a peek at my family in the middle of CW.

then i was picked up on the way to the barn.
i can't ever get over how much they have every single month.
i am a junking addict.

everyone finds treasures.

i found this.

it was a no-brainer.
when you find something that is this perfectly your style… you almost HAVE to say yes.
yellow? chippy paint? working doors, shelves and drawers? turquoise ON THE INSIDE?
there was no way i was saying no to this.
IMG_8365-2
i can't wait to fill her with craft supplies.
i think i will name her Sunny.

we got on some comfy clothes and got back into crafting.

another fabulously creative, kind, happy group that we are honored to be able to serve and pamper.

thanks girls for coming all the way to kansas to get crafty.

thanks shannan and taryn for being rock star helpers!

craft weekend has been a complete blessing in every way.
what started as a "let's try it ONE time to see if we like it" has turned into this wonderful, JOYful job
that both kimberlee and i are loving every minute of.
what started as a weekend of making crafts has turned into helping women find their creativity again.
giving them an opportunity to BE CREATIVE… to rest…. to refresh their spirits.

i love craft weekend.

 

more information on HOW to get to Craft Weekend is all found HERE.

Lori Austin - Fantastic pics from another super fun CW.
Tulips + jar + yellow trivet = LOVE! 🙂
I also love that Shannan was one of your helpers. I started
following her blog thru you some time ago and was pleased to find she
lives in my own state. How fun! Both of your blogs have been such a blessing to me.

Jes - Love these posts! In the picture of the swag there is a print in the back that looks charcoal grey, with a sort of linen looking texture and a bit faux chalkboard like. Would you please tell me where it is from? Thank you!

Michelle from Australia - The star quilt is to die for. I would fly to Kansas just to find one like that!!

Jacci in Ohio - Love it 🙂 The tulip photo actually made me gasp! lol. I love the flowers on your island every single time no matter what they are. And the jar… perfect.
Looks like another super fun weekend 🙂

Thanks,
Cindy B.

Stef - Alright Meg. My 6 1/2 year old daughter {Rachel} is my crafting queen around here. She wants to create and craft and decorate and re-shape everything she gets her eyes on. She even gifts me, her non-crafty Mother, tips on how I can make things and decorate things.
She just saw this blog post and the gasping and oo’ing and awwing and can be heard for miles and miles 🙂
I believe she uttered the words “I wish we lived by her so she could be like my Mom.”
Just thought you’d want to know, you have a little admirer.

Gale - Looks like so much fun!! I feel blessed to have been part of #12! Love LOVE love your cabinet!!

Dawn G - a weekend full of fabulous! thanks for everything – so. much. fun!

DebZorn - You have really found your strength! Craft weekend just looks like so much fun! Your yellow cupboard is spectacular. Thank you for sharing.

Stacy Mc - Love your craft weekend posts. Such a happy place! You and Kimberlee need to do Craft Weekend Book, or at least cook book. Would be a best seller for sure! Even a ebook would be great.
Stacy Mc

Lorie - So blessed to be part of lucky #13! It was such an amazing weekend. thanks for having us Meg&Kimberlee!
