What a Fabulous weekend I have had with my HA hostess sistas. All the stamping, chatting, laughing and now it's time to share those memorable moments. As I'm starting to pick up the pieces in my house and I do feel a bit too tired to make/do anything. I thought I'd share some pictures. Here is a card and some generous gifts that Karen gave me. I absolutley adore the doll card that she made. Don't you? Karen does think "ouside the box" as this Asian doll looks so gorgeous in the shades of pink and orange with the white embossing. Just DARLING ( as Karen would say).
We were so happy when Karen arrived after 2 and 1/4 hr of drive frm Michigan.
This was our craft table where we crafted away....everyone was so hard at work! It was pure magic and fun as we shared that special time together....I was sleep-deprived and wasn't as "productive" as I'd like to be. There's my spot with the coffe cup. I ended up giving everyone a FREE massage instead!
FABULOUS and BEAUTIFUL ladies-Sarah, Karen, Kathy and Tracey.
After we came back to my house in Waterloo after the retreat, we went to "Sakura Island" for Japanese food. We looked so relaxed and happy...Kathy was so sneaky as she secretly handed her credit card to the waitress without us knowing it. When the bill came, we were "shocked" and Dr. John was so impressed how Kathy singlehandedly "tricked" us! Thank you, Kathy!! You are just too fun and generous!!!
Here are the fun shot with my "sneaky" boy David. My sistas just adore him :)
The next moring (our last few hours together) we went to nearby town St. Jacob (a Mennonite comminity- much like the Amish country in Lancaster. Penn.) and did some antique shopping.
I love this quilt and how it's displayed....GORGEOUS!
Tracey and Kathy both asked the shop keeper for the metal frogs! They convinced me to get one and then along the way, Kathy found something that she REALLY has to have! Look at the paper/card holder!! Isn't it a GREAT find? I know that holder is going to adorn her amazing cards even more!
We ended the shopping with these yummy morsels!
Thanks for coming to my way, Tracey and Kathy! I LOVE every minute of it!!
