I had the most amazing opportunity to attend Craft House Weekend #whatevercraftweekend in Kansas last weekend and had the best time! Our name came up on the waitlist (some people there had been waiting since 2011) and I had two colleagues from work join me for a weekend of crafting, eating and antique shopping, what more could you want! There were 12 women that stayed at the house from all around the country (and Canada) and it was so fun to meet some incredible women and make new friends. Here are some pictures of my weekend and some information if you are interested in going. (warning picture heavy:))
The house is amazing! It is Meg’s old house that her family used to live in. They moved and now rent out this beautiful house for groups and every few weekends they host Craft House. It is an all inclusive weekend and Meg and her friend Kimberly, our wonderful hosts, make you feel right at home! Kimberly took care of all the cooking and Meg assisting us in crafting well into night. Here are some pictures of the house, I would be happy to come back anytime!
Here is a picture of the house right after we got there and the next morning. I loved when we pulled up all the lights were on and the curtains were open inviting us in.
Everywhere you turned there was something else to look at
Snacks for late night crafting. Look at all of that amazing supplies! A crafters dream!
Some more pictures of the house, the kitchen and the most beautiful staircase.
The pièce de résistance, the work room!
We made five fun projects over the weekend. Craft House signature ruffle aprons, wire word signs, pom-pom garland, leather belt bracelets and felt triangle pillows. We worked on the aprons on Friday night and then Saturday evening Meg showed us the rest of the projects and we worked on them throughout the evening. It was so nice to sit in this fun house in the beautiful and well-lit work room chatting with new friends.
The fabric we got to choose from for our aprons. We also got some fun swag to take home!

The Food and the Antique Barn
On Saturday we headed out for some antiquing and found some amazing finds.
We had a good time at the barn and took a fun photo in front of this colorful door
Did I mention how awesome the food was? I didn’t take a picture of everything but Kimberly made sure we did not go hungry! Everything was homemade from the cinnamon rolls, cheesecake, chicken enchiladas, egg casserole, coffee cake and individual pot pies. I have never craved a pot pie before but I am craving Kimberly’s now that I have had one!
So all in all it truly was a dream-come-true weekend! I had very high expectations and they were exceeded! My favorite thing about crafting is spending time relaxing and being creative and I got to do just that! If you are interested in attending visit Meg’s blog for information on the weekend and the waitlist.
I hope you all can find ways to make time for yourself and doing what you love!
