we’re off to see the wizard!

ok not really, but we are going to kansas to see meg for craft weekend, and thats about as magical as going to oz!

me and my sweet friend, joy, are handing off our kids and flying out this morning for our great adventure.  so crazy excited!

i so wish i could go a few days early to craft weekend.  silly i know, but i’d love to fold and organize fabric, make pretty beds, and ready the house.  seeing meg’s teasers on instagram has been too much for me!

i have very few things that i’ve vocally put on my “bucket list” but going to cw is one of them – yippee!

and joy and i have talked about/dreamed about (having a lot of money to:) rent a uhaul and drive out to the crazy long garage sales in the midwest or wherever all those amazing antique fairs are.  isn’t it so fun to dream with girlfriends?  i think i’d have to take my mom with us too – she’d probably kill me otherwise!

i keep forgetting to show you all the new products i added to the shop, and the sold out ones that are restocked!

    Welcome to KANSAS! Actually, you won’t be that far from where I live, Meg’s house is in the town that my husband works and we live out in the country around the area. Can’t wait to see your post, I would love to go to a Craft Weekend sometime!

    I know you are flying into Wichita but I can’t tell what town Meg lives in? I live in Kansas and I just have to say – Jayhawks yuck!!! How about those Wildcats. ;)

      AGREED! Go ‘Cats! I’m pretty sure Meg lives in or around Hesston, from what I’ve been able to tell following her blog. :)

    sean told me you were en route! jealous AND super excited for both you and joy.
    you’d have to take your s.i.l., on your dream road-trip, too! you know i would be great fun. i’d bring 80’s cover songs, my camera AND video vlogging voice to document the trip, make us stop for milkshakes along the way, and you’d meet all kinds of interesting people i nuttingly approached. :-)

    AHHH! I live in Wichita. You’re one of my favorite handmade shops/bloggers and it makes me a little giddy to know you’ll coming through my area! I had NO idea about Craft Weekend until this post, which makes me a little sad since my time in Kansas (13 years now) is coming to an end in May (Navy wife). I was in your neck of the woods in October (and was sad you weren’t at QBM!), so you coming to mine now is kind of awesome. (And coincidental, because, really, no one picks the middle of Kansas for a vacation spot when they live in California! Ha!)

    Have so much fun and travel safe–looks like an incredible time!
