Recoopering From A Crafty Weekend Full Of Fun & Lack Of Sleep With Lots Of Laughs!

Hi there and good Monday to you! Did you have a good weekend? I had a very fun filled weekend with 10 other very crafty ladies.. we scrapbooked and stamped Thursday – Sunday. I got home mid afternoon yesterday and I have to say.. I am exhausted.  We crafted til wee hours of the morning. I am so happy with all I got done this weekend! I’m still smiling with great memories that I will cherish with these wonderful ladies. Ada, thank you so much for holding such a fun event. Ada holds these events twice a year. It is a big job, a lot of pre planning and it shows. She is a great lady and what a fun group to join for the weekend. I’m so happy she had a spot for me to hang her and the gals!

I was in West Olive Michigan, which is along the lake shore of West Michigan.. between Muskegon and Holland. It is called Into The Woods, and for a good reason.. it REALLY is into the woods.. over the mountain and thru the hills to crafting paradise we go… ~~~

I just wanted to share some pictures from the event. We did something fun each night at Midnight. Nothing too crazy or drastic.. but fun and randon.. like.. making “leaf” angels.. trust me.. it was fun and we giggled for quite a while after that too!

This was our scenery.. who cannot be inspired when you see this out your windows each day.. and the leaves on the trees are starting to change.. I love!

I loved taking a walk outside. The weather was mild. It was perfect!
