Crafting in the Hills

Some of my scrappy friends and I spent a weekend in the mountains of Georgia, USA to do some crafting and to enjoy ourselves,  in short, to get away from the hustle and bustle of our busy lives and just relax and do what we like to do.  For some of us this was the second time around and for others it was the first time.  Whatever the case, we all had something in common and that was to let our creativity flow and learn from others.  Here are just a few scenes from our trip and the project that I shared with them:

While some of us worked into the wee hours of the morning, the rest of us just kicked backed and enjoyed the peace and quiet of the moment.  Age was no boundary as we had the company of one of our older friends.  It goes to show that creativity has no age limit.
As a friendly gesture I made gift bags for everyone.  These bags were crafted using a plain craft gift bag.  I added patterned paper to each side and then piled on the embellishments,  Inside the bag were a number of crafty gifts( ribbon, diecuts, etc.)

Have you been on a  crafting getaway  trip lately?  Why not tell us about it.  Share the joys and pleasures you had and the friendships you made.


  1. Looks like plenty of crafting going on. Love the bags. Wonderful gesture.

  2. There is just something special about fellowshipping with your sistah crafters. It looks like you ladies had a ball and I love how the gift bags turned out. I have never tried making a gift bag, but after your posting I’m going to give it a try this weekend. Thanks for sharing.

  3. Looks like you all had fun and the bags are lovely!

  4. Thanks ladies and yes we had the best time craftinf, sharing and laughing.

  5. Faye, its been a year since I've been on a getaway, but looking at all the fun you ladies had has got me thinking about changing that! Love your goodie bags too!

  6. The goodie bags are awesome! Thanks for sharing the photos of a great crafty time together
