Regina's Visit


Happy Friday!

Regina and I spent nine fun days together this year.  We went out to dinner two nights, made an all-day excursion, attended a stamp camp and a crop night, and managed seven days of all-day crafting!

We each made an amazing project that Regina found on-line.  I will be posting mine and the link sometime in the coming week.  In the meantime, here is Regina's fabulous version.  

Last year Regina showed me how to make beautiful daisies and this year I showed her how to make a double slider card.

Here is a picture of the welcome gift Regina gave me:


They are pot holders/tea coasters!  The polka dot circles are coated for setting your mug on.  You know I have been making good use of the purple one!

Here is a picture of us at dinner on the last night of our visit:



After dinner, Regina gave me a package and said not to open it until my birthday.

So, what was in this package?


So purple-licious!


This box is breathtakingly gorgeous!  Regina did an amazing job of embellishing it!


Inside is a mini cake, candle, and box of matches!


I can hardly believe that tonight will be three weeks since our goodbye (until next year) dinner.  I look forward to next year's get-together!

Thanks for stopping by and I wish everyone a very crafty weekend!

Wow, what a amazing gift. Those purple baskets are amazing and that litte box...
But the tea cozies are great, too. What wonderful idea.
See you Tuesday.
