Just for the fun of it, I hosted a girlfriends craft weekend here in Vermont. Robin drove up from Boston area and Melinda came from Philly. Meleen joined us and my daughter Erin came over too.
Because it was almost Valentine's Day, I suggested we make tagbooks like this one I made years ago for Mary's magazine. Everyone brought personal photos and bits to add in and I have so much stuff in my studio to share. Wow, it was a crazy, fun craftorama.
We built the books from scratch making pockets to tuck tags into. Click here for another look at the book I made for Mo. (BTW our little Mo's getting married in June!)
Melinda brought this pretty stack of wool and the vintage card - her cats are actually named Bubble and Squeak!
Meleen filled her book with clever tags for recipes.
Robin delighted us with her cute bunny ears!
There was a fair amount of hanging out with mugs of coffee, simmering meals (and a Dutch Baby) and comfy evenings relaxing while catching up.
Southern Vermont is such a magical place and I love to share it. Having this happy group of crafty women at my home was such a treat for me. Soon the weather will let us be outside on the deck where we can stir up a pot of indigo and dip dye our tag sale finds. We can explore the back roads of paradise. And when we've made the most of the day, we can build a campfire at the pond and let the laughter fly up to meet the stars.
If this sounds like fun to you, email me. I'm an AirBnB host and would love to create a special girlfriends weekend experience just for you. Summer is so sweet here!
