the weekend of crafting and a CRAZY great GIVEAWAY


This past weekend we had a craft weekend in Blue Rige, GA.
Ten ladies pictured from Left to Right: 

What started as a few friends getting together for a girls' weekend turned into a full blown weekend of crafting, shopping and fun. I'm so glad everyone got to come. It was so awesome to meet each of the ladies in person and to be able to create with them.

We did lots of crafting, but before we show you all the fun things we made we wanted to show you all the goodies we got! A craft weekend isn't complete without swag. We received lots goodies, AND we get to share them with one lucky winner!

Ball Mason jar, wooden clothespins, wooden spools, scrapbook paper, 2 rolls of washi tape, supplies for geometric, wooden bead necklace.
And a special thanks to Baby Boy Bakery who provided yummy goodies for each of our swag baskets!

Enter through rafflecopter below.
The winner will be announced on Saturday, September 22nd and we'll be posting photos from the weekend and the projects we created!
