Oh my. Hello, friends! :)
It feels like it's been a looong time - it's nearly been 2 weeks! he he.
A wonderful week of vacation was had, I have to say! I got back home from everything early on Monday but it's been whirlwind since then, so here I am!
Our first official car road trip (we don't own a car & hubby just got his license renewed a few months ago) took us to my cousin's lovely wedding & visits with family, camping in the Okanagan & looking for Sasquatches (yesss), hot springs, and then to top it all off, I had the most lovely of crafty weekends in Seattle that I'm just realizing I forgot to/couldn't finish a blog post about before I went - eek! I think I mentioned it, but I didn't say where exactly I went. hmm...
Can you guess where I've been crafting?
Picture this: a beautiful old house full of whirring sewing machines, busy crochet needles, colorful yarn & garlands, suitcases & tables of vintage goodies (eeek!), and sooo much productivity and inspiration from many lovely fellow crafty souls - not to mention the loveliest of lovely ladies guiding us along the way - a crafter I'm sure you admire. :) Happppyyyy....
I'm all smiles today. Have been all week, in fact.
It was such a perfectly peachy weekend. So lovely in every way. My belly is happy from yummy home-cooked food, my bag is full of handmade goodness & new finished projects. I'm renewed creatively and really really motivated to get going on things that have been in my get-it-going pile for a long while. Yay! It's just all around a good inspired feeling I have welling up inside. :)
A little hint, for you:
Um, yeah. This is my dream room. (photo source).
This photo just reminds me of the feel of it all, at least for me.
I'll be back here with some eye candy once I wade through photos from the trip & weekend - pictures are already starting to pop up online from the other lovelies I met and it's so exciting! :) he he. Will share as soon as I can!
And speaking of the get-it-going pile, I'm super-behind on stuff right now: freelance work, long overdue fun work, blog posts, photos...you name it. Agh! It's overwhelming but doable, though. As it always is around vacation time. I was hoping to start getting back on track Tuesday, but I've been fighting a super-pesky dry cough for about a week and a half, now, so that hasn't happened. Starting tonight & into this catch-up weekend, here I come!
My sincere apologies if you're waiting on and e-mail or anything from me -
I'm backlogged on those the most, but hope to be caught up by tomorrow night.
Thanks for being so patient, lovelies! :)
More very very soon - and don't forget to guess!
I'm so curious to see who you think I crafted with across the border...
