new old friends ♥

the weekend flew by.
i left thursday and came home sunday
and it was like i blinked.

i flew to Kansas to meet my sweet friend AmyJ.
it was almost three years in the making
since we first found each other on the web

Amy is exactly how i thought she would be
the same 
sweet & kind. i just love her
Becky is funny & full of spunk
a lot like me :)

after spending the first day with Amy 
(which was so sad. it went by way too fast. like it was nothing)
we headed to the craft house in Newton
i just took a few snapshots that will never do this house justice

this was our room...

there is detail in every corner
inspiration on every wall

it made me smile to see my garland hanging in one of the bedrooms

the work room is huge
and beautiful
i've gotten so much inspiration from here
for my own studio

it kinda felt like i was home in that room.

we ate.
like a lot.
like a lot of good stuff.
probably the best stuff ever.

i got to meet Heather too. which was a major bonus that wasn't planned!
she's such a sweet soul. and kind. i wanted to hang out with her more.

also got to meet Jess.
so quiet, and full of wisdom.
i was listening to her talk here and there
really just someone i'd love to know more.

goodbye whatever craft weekend
i've been blessed to stay within your walls
meet your beloved hosts & helpers
and make your ruffled apron
lemme come back again someday mkay?
