jennibell - I made Pam’s Cheesecake for the first time (I KNOW, you’ve only been talking about it for YEARS) for my son’s birthday and it was an absolute HIT. My husband loved it so much that he went out and bought all the ingredients for a second one over Thanksgiving. Unfortunately, I over-baked it and it wasn’t *as* good but since we know how good it CAN be I’ll try again soon. A new family “special treat” for sure. Thanks for sharing!!!

Jenna - I want one of the rainbow necklaces … And I’m going to shop the soaps for a gift!

Amy B - I plan to order from Barn Owl Primitives. I love their signs!

Kristi - I love the You Are My Sunshine plaque! I love the bright yellow and have always loved that saying. Such great items!

Stephanie - LOVE the JOY craft. Where did you get the large letters from??

Friday Favorites » Between You & Me - […] Meg knows how to color her world happy. Not everyone can do this. She has mastered it. […]

Charla - Rachel P. is my dear friend. Don’t you just adore her? If she comes again to help you I’m planning on hiding in her suitcase! I’m going to har house tomorrow night for a craft night and hoping we’ll get so make some of your cute projects. Fun fun fun!!! Love your blog, Meg. It’s a slice of happiness every day!

Sara - Okay, last comment, I promise. Marion Ogden from Bearly Makin’ It had that coffee can in the mail to me within 10 minutes of my phone call. That is crazy awesome! And he’s just trusting me to send him a check. I’ll be sending him a check WITH a thank you note. He was so nice and funny. Unbelievable customer service. Is that a Kansas thing? 🙂

Sara - I lucked out and found the name of the antique store in an older post of yours and a link to it. I just called and they’re shipping a Fleming’s Flavor-Rich Coffee can to me in Virginia. So fun! I feel bad for asking them to ship out a $6 item, but the man was very nice about it and laughed when I told him I saw it on Meg Duerksen’s blog. He figured. 😉 I am so excited to give this to my friend named Fleming!

Sara - I tried eBay and Etsy for a Fleming’s flavor-rich coffee can but there are no current listings.

Sara - Hi Meg, talk about merry and bright! You do color the world with rainbows and glitter and brighten everyone’s day.

Could you PLEASE tell me the name and location of the antique store you took the crafters to? I would like to get in touch with them and see if they would ship an item to me. I *need* that Fleming’s Flavor- Rich Coffee can from the antique store pic. I want to give it to a friend named Fleming (!) who took pics of my baby girl as a gift to me. Thank you so much!!!

Jen - What fun!

Laura - I think the craft house has made you and Kim look YOUNGER

stephany - I spy a lot of changes in the craft house…beautiful changes, but I am glad that I was there when some of your old “family home” was still there too.
Looking forward to seeing all of the new things in store for the 3rd floor and the rest of the house!
So exciting!

Michelle Hunt - What an amazingly relaxing, fun weekend. I don’t think I’ve ever been told before then “You are not allowed to clear the table”. Super cute crafts and everyone’s turned out great! Meg is as adorable and sweet in person as you would think she would be. What a special weekend we all had 🙂

Rach - Agreed. Such a great group of women. I had so much fun and all of the crafts I brought home are such a nice reminder of the weekend!

No group picture this time? Were we all making silly faces?? 🙂
