Whatever Craft Weekend {Part One}

This past weekend I helped Meg host Whatever Craft Weekend.
We set up most of Thursday and all day Friday.

Ashley, and our guests, most of whom we'd never met, moved into the craft house Friday evening.
After some initial introductions, cupcakes and dinner (in that order), we got down to the business of crafting. (By the way, I was the cook for the weekend, but I gave up trying to take pictures of the food due to the lighting in the dining room and kitchen. Grrr.)
See that apron Meg is wearing? That was our first project.
The ladies got down to business right away.
Some of them had never sewn, while others were quite comfortable behind a sewing machine.
We crafted into the wee hours of Saturday morning.
We ate the best cheesecake ever.
Meg and I fell into our beds happy.
I couldn't fall asleep, which is unusual for me.
I kept thinking about these incredible women who were becoming such good friends of ours.
I lay there thanking the Lord for each one and thinking about His creativity displayed in each.
Women were created to be awesome.
Can't you see it displayed in each one?
More awesomeness from Craft Weekend tomorrow!

    Where do I even begin?
    Thank you so much for a weekend I will never forget. Never.
    Your love was felt in every single thing you guys did.
    the decorations,
    the food,
    the conversation,
    the crafts,
    the singing,
    the driving {especially the backing up part}

    You are a kindred spirit in many ways.
    I'm so glad we met.
    Even though we are miles apart, I hope the friendship we kindled in Kansas continues. I really do.

    Can't wait to see you at Blog Sugar!!

    Thank you from the bottom of my heart for everything.
