craft weekend {part one}

Oh craft weekend, you are GOOD for the soul! I haven’t unpacked all my treasures from last weekend–I think I don’t want to admit it’s over.

Chrissie and I flew into Wichita late Thursday night, grabbed a milkshake from McDonald’s and drove three hours to Kansas City to do a morning show segment with Better TV, Kansas City. After the segment we did some hard core thrifting and drove back to Wichita to meet up with Meg, Kimberlee and the girls for craft weekend.

One of my favorite thrifted treasures is this apple red stapler–that works! $3.

I love vintage glassware but I hardly buy it as my boys tend to break it. We use plastic around here 😉

My twin sis, Chrissie completes me–and I know that’s totally cheesy but it’s also totally true!

When it comes to thrifting, that girl doesn’t mess around. She had to buy another suitcase to get all her {{amazing}} treasures home.

I couldn’t resist these adorable yellow metal letters. A perfect reminder to PLAY a little every day.

Dear friends. I wish I had more time with them–it’s never enough! Meg is honest and funny and heartfelt and REAL.

We had some gray skies and chilly rain. It felt more like winter than spring!

Do you know Kimberlee? Man, I love this girl. We share a heart connection. I haven’t laughed as hard or cried as much in a long time. Seriously GOOD!

This group can CRAFT! They are pros–and so sweet. And funny. I laughed a lot!!

And a thrifted dress–more on this one soon.

Just looking at these pics makes me want to go back. Have you done something that’s good for your soul today?


  1. HOW did i miss this post???
    i am clueless.
    thank you for coming!!! it was WAY too short. like we said… the hardest part about craft weekend is saying goodbye to the helpers. 🙂 THANK you. can’t wait for kimberlee and i to tour california and thrift with YOU at YOUR favorite places!!!

  2. Can you give me more details on the craft weekend locale?? I am new to your blog/posts… I follow you on Instagram and love all your pics!! My bestie and I meet up numerous times a year and I would love to visit where you went if that is a possibility?
    Always – Abbey

  3. I loved this post! I just soaked in all your beautiful photos! Do you have any idea of the artist of the You Are Loved print? I need that for my daughter!

  4. I am thrilled that you and Chrissie could come to CW again! And I pray that you come back again, and again and again, and again.
    And I also dream of time in California.
    Someday soon, I hope!

  5. A craft weekend sounds wonderful. I would love that. Looks like you ladies had a great time.

    By the way, my mom has a twin sister and I have two sets of boy/girl twins. They are 13 and 16 years old. 🙂

  6. I so want to go to one of those craft weekends! So glad you had time with your sis. My cousin is like my sister (we are the only grand daughters!), and I am going to Hawaii to help her with her brand new baby in two weeks. It will be SO GOOD for our souls!

    Today, though, this is what I did: I watched the trailer to Ethan Hawke’s new movie “Before Midnight.” I am obsessed with “Before Sunrise” and “Before Sunset,” and I can’t wait to get lost in the final film of the trilogy (it started just when I was graduating from high school!). They are such beautiful films, but I’ll take the last trailer for now!

  7. Love that dress! What were your favorite thrift shops in KC? I’m new here and would love your opinion. 🙂

  8. Oh my word, a crafting & thrifting weekend looks amazing! I have only had the pleasure of following your blog for a couple of months, so it was so fun finding out that you are a twin!

  9. Such a wonderful weekend! You are absolutely right – it was food for the soul. I soooo enjoyed meeting you and Chrissie. You are both AWESOME! “No moleste!”

  10. Everytime I see a craft weekend I just drool. It looks like so much fun! I’m on the list so maybe one day I’ll get to go!!! Wonderful pictures, beautiful smiles! That dress is fabulous on you!!!!

  11. Perfect sister get away! Megs weekends seem to be daydream worthy. Love that dress, great shape and color. Looks like it was waiting for you…

  12. What a lovely weekend! I so want to do one of those some day…I didn’t know you had a twin…somehow I missed that.
