Blogging Moments to Remember

This gathering of friends held last week explains, in many smiles, why blogging is so much fun.
Our friend Jemma of At Home with Jemma organized an Arts & Crafts retreat for those of us who live within driving distance.

We had wonderful food and props to play with.

There were amazing crafts organized by Laura of Decor to Adore and Judith of Botanic Bleu.

The tables were set with care to welcome us.

KariAnne of Thistlewood Farms was in town and she shared her beautiful 
Sweet Tea fabric line with us

We had the best time! This was a day to laugh and encourage!
There are very nice people behind blogs who love to share creativity and life. 
I'm so happy to be among this group of blogging girlfriends.

Going through pictures I realized that there were quite a few people here who apparently ducked from the cameras. We'll get you next time!!

Thank you girls for a wonderful day.
 Remember, get together with friends as often as you can. ♥

Does it make sense to say that the party looks like the sweet people and vice versa?

It makes perfect sense to me.Look at all of the smiles!

Blondie's Journal said...

How fun! And I thought Texas was so big! I've followed Laura and KariAnne forever, and Jemma for the past year so it was so cool to see their pretty faces as well as yours. Yay !

Jelly jealous! You girls are having too much fun! For as big as Texas is, you sure make it seem like Hometown, USA the way you were able to get together!

Have a great week.xo

Like Mary Poppins -- practically perfect in every way. Maybe even better than MP -- no practically about it! It looks such fun, Stacey! I can tell there was lots of joy and fun in that room!

What a wonderful time you must have all had. I have been to a couple of different blogging conferences, but I haven't really connected with other bloggers. I would love to have a circle of friends or even acquaintances like this! You have inspired me to reach out to some others! Thanks for sharing at Celebrate Your Story!

Such a pretty table setting and that fabric is gorgeous!
