I don't even have a great excuse for being gone. School is out for summer vacation and we've just been home, hanging out and having fun. There is a new scrapbook store in town that I'm just totally in love with and I can't get enough time in. My scrappy girlfriends and I have been scrapping away together. The laundry is piling up, the garden needs to be weeded, my scrap room is a total disaster (going through yet-another-redo), yada yada yada.... basically, you know, life is happening!
So Tuesday the Scrappy Girls all got together for our weekly crop and we had a patriotic theme going on. It was really my turn to host, but being as how I can't even see the floor or a single tabletop in my studio at the moment, one of the girls graciously offered to let me have it at her house and I just brought the stuff with me. That was a genius solution- thanks Kandy!
I brought along some goodies for us to create with- chipboard stars, lots of vintage images to play with, patriotic-themed flashcards and some hand-dyed seam binding. Over the last couple of weeks I've also been doing some canning and I brought everyone some blueberry-lemonade jam. Hope they liked it!
We had Pulled Pork sandwiches, iced tea and brownies. Kinda like a picnic, only in a really beautiful house instead. with no ants. or flies. or frisbees to duck. and the air conditioning kept us nice and cool. Basically, I think I've decided I like indoor picnics better than outdoor picnics!
