Kickin' It Blogger Style

I'm back from my loooong weekend away feeling refreshed (sort of) and ready to face of the world. (maybe) It's Monday, that's about as excited as I can get. ;) Thank you all for your concern on my job situation. I'm still in limbo and prepared for both options so hopefully I can remain patient (stop laughing) and we'll see what happens. Less job = more crafting.

Our weekend away was loads of fun that including some slot machines, an Irish Pub, many hands of gin rummy and a whole lotta hockey. And yesterday we hit a craft show in Maryland. And you know who we got to meet??

That dorky one in the middle there would be me. Oy. Can you tell which one is my sister? Ha ha, yes that's Mandi on the left and there on the right? . . . that's Katie from See Katie Sew! Meeting Katie was like meeting an old friend. We clicked right away and even made plans for a future thrift adventure together! (can't wait!)

Katie and some of the other EtsyCREST girls shared a booth and let me tell you, they had some gorgeous things!! You know I went shopping, right?

You can see Katie's corner back there on the left and that's Amy from Bella's Boutique. She made these lovely monogrammed cards:

I'm a big advocate of "snail mail" and love having fancy note cards to send. I also picked up these fabulous cards from Miscelena:

Her stuff is beautiful! I should have asked her name, duh. Katie?? And you KNOW I had to have one of Katie's bags and a headband:

Jealous? You should be. I love it. Want to see it again?

Well on my way to being the sassiest girl on the block. :) Here are the other girls from the fair:

Aycee Designs
Get Wired Designs
Kim Mings

What a group of talented ladies!

So all in all a fun weekend. There was also some thrifting and gifting that I'll share in another post. Oh and I'll be drawing the winner of my giveaway on Thursday!


PS: Rangers up 2-1 over New Jersey. God Bless King Henrik.

So glad you had fun. Nothing like a craft fair to take one's mind off of work! That purse is gorgeous! Love those prints!

Dita said...

I love that bag!! Really makes me want to conquer my sewing machine. I think I'll add that to my long of to-dos.

Sounds like a great weekend! I'm wearing one of Katie's headbands today, I love it. We'll have to plan our thrifting adventure soon. Good luck on the work front, that all sounds stressful.

What fun! Sounds like it was just what the doctor ordered. :)

It sounds like the ideal way to spend a weekend. You girls look like a team, alright, the cute team.

Oh I'm so jealous, not just a fun weekend away at a craft fair but meeting up with other bloggers--you all look like you had a great time!

Hey Rebecca - thanks for the comment (my first!) and the encouragement! Just a quick query - how could I get involved in the swap you run on your other blog?

Welcome Back! What a great trip, love Irish pubs, I'm good at those.
Your bag is adorable, is there pockets on the inside? A bit of ruffle in the seams... very happy!

Looks like you had a great weekend and you certainly scored some handmade goodness. I adore the bag that Katie made!
