Not Alt Summit Awesomeness…

So yesterday I went through what was awesome about Alt Summit. Today I will talk about my favorite part of the whole trip – the WAY MORE AWESOME part, the part that was not Alt Summit.

Where we got to relax and unwind and just be our silly selves with our sewing silly buds!!!

A small group of friends organized a lunch where we could get together, meet up, and laugh. And I was blessed to be able to be a part of it. And let me just tell you, these ladies are the awesomest. I love them all!

Miriam from MadMim, Emily from Replicate then Deviate

Amy from This Heart of Mine, Amy from Naptime Crafters

Tori of Sassy Steals, Delia of Delia Creates

Miriam, Sachiko of Tea Rose Home, Miranda of One Little Minute

And we even got to help Miranda celebrate a 30th Birthday!!!

I love them all, and this was by far the highlight of my trip! Anything where I can just relax, unwind, and truly be myself around people that I know love me for who I am. Where I am not worried about handing out my business card – ha!

It doesn’t get better than that!  I just wish more of you could be there!!!

My dream? A day when all of us crafty divas live in some pre-fab sewing / crafty community together and Martha is the president of the association. HA!  Love you guys!

Thanks so much for stopping by, and until next time…

Happy Sewing!

    When I think about the whole trip, thinking about this lunch makes me smile the biggest. I felt so at home, I don’t think anyone would guess that most of us had never met before!! There’s something to be said for being around our people!!

      Amen!!!! ha! I really loved seeing you again Mim, there is something about seeing someone in person. I was saying the same thing about you too – that you were just the sweetest person! And I loved seeing the shirt you were wearing on your blog today!! That made me feel special, like I had a sneak peak before hand :)
