She Loves to be One of the Girls

Yesterday we had another Kansas City(ish) crafty blogger meet-up.

Lots of awesome people were able to come this time. And Jenny hosted again. And since someone is pregnant, we decided to also make it a surprise baby shower.

baby gift from me: a minky blanket and two mini-moopies

We had a great time and talked about everything (as usual) (we're a gabby bunch).


And it was great to have an afternoon out, especially since Aaron left for a business trip today and our basement flooded last week and oh shit, I'll just bitch about all that tomorrow.

Thanks for organizing everything, Laura. It was such a great time. Stupid me. I forgot to take pictures of my baby gifts. I guess it didn't happen.

Those are the cutest moopies! And you crafted! How lucky are you?! The fabrics are wonderful. Take it easy with Aaron gone considering you are injured at all.

Love your mini-moopies and blanket.

It's nice to get out sometimes, isn't it? Especially when we know we are about to be housebound with rowdy, rambunctious boys while hubby's away. (I speak from experience here. I am not insinuating that your boys are the rowdy, rambunctious types.)

You lucky thing to have so many local bloggers!

Love your (oops, the baby's) 'eyes wide open' moopie!

Bea said...

Does one have to be a mother to join these parties? :-) I'm crafty!... Well, not as crafty as you these days.

Stacy said...

I'm so lucky to be the moopy recipient. Well, my kids, that is. :) One moopy has already been to my work, the Paper Source and LatteLand. Busy moopy.
