So happy to be back!!

I"ve been out in Boston for a couple weeks and it sure feels good to be back!
My husband's sister and family are preparing to move back to Minnesota... YEAH!!   So my SIL, Tina, and I flew out there to help them get their house ready to be put on the market and start packing.  We did lots of painting, cleaning and packing but did manage to get some fun activities in.

Tina ,Chignon, and I both belong to the Cricut Circle and a couple weeks before the trip we had posted on the mb where we would be and if any Circlets from surrounding areas would like to meet up.  We did get some responses and Diane, Capadia Designs, was kind enough to open up her home to all of us.
There ended up being 7 of us that got together and we had a wonderful day.  Tina and I had already in Boston for a week and we were going through some craftin withdrawels so it was perfect timing  for us. We met at about 10am at Dianes , had some cake and fruit , visited, and then ventured out.  Diane gave us a tour of Concord , hit the LSS, Ink it Up, and then stopped for sandwiches and ice cream.
We ended up back at Diane's and guess what we did??!!   You betcha, we went to her craft area and   played for the rest of the afternoon and into the evening. She was gracious enough to let us use her stuff and  we learned some new techniques. Yeppers, lots of enabling going on .... I see an Imagine in my future :)
It was a  great day spent with some wonderful women!!

I'm now back in Mn and trying to get caught up with everything, 2 weeks is a long time to be away from home.  All I can say is its great to be back and can't wait to get back to the craft room!!
