Meeting Friends In Person For The First Time

Hi ! I finally got to meet two of my blog friends. Joyce and Cathy! We all live kinda near by, 
Joyce is a little farther so we met in a central place. It  was so much fun to meet someone I only 
know from being online. Joyce and Cathy had met before, so I was the new girl.  I 
have never done anything like this before.  As my son would say" meet online strangers!!! "only because that is what I would have said to him. :) He was kidding though. Well, I have to say Joyce and Cathy are  just as they seem online warm, kind, friendly, and fun to talk to. We shared about our families, stamping , I may have used 
up more time on my 11 grandchildren.  I loved hearing  about Joyce's girls. I loved learning about Cathy's family as well . Cathy and I go to many of the same places to shop.  Well I am not a very good 
writer so I will just let you look at the pictures. Thanks again Joyce and Cathy for including me in your get- together. It was so nice to meet you both. Thanks again for the kind gifts.

This is the beautiful gift and adorable , not owl, but penguin card from Joyce.
The treat box was filled with delicious home made caramels! The caramels were so
good. I make candy too and know it is a lot of work.

This is the beautiful card ,amazing home made candles, and box from Cathy.
Cathy even made the box! 

I made this small tag and Honeycomb candy. The girls out did me !

This is the three of us, Im at the end , Cathy and Joyce .
I hate to be in pictures. 


  1. The three of you look so lovely together. Beautiful picture. I love your post and how brimming with kindness it is. The goodies exchanged look marvelous. What a crafty lot of lasses you all are. So cool that you've met up. I'm not half jealous. ;) Very special.

  2. Wow-- you are quick to post. It was so nice to meet you and spend the morning together. And, that candy was delicious. I had to force myself to save some for the rest of my family.

  3. I just had the very best time meeting you MaryBeth. It was such fun to talk about our lives and crafting. They time flew by and I am looking forward to the next time we can get together. PS, I was lucky enough to get to photograph your candy before it was completely devoured. It was delicious. What a great way to start off the holiday spirit!

  4. Hey Marybeth it sounds like you had fun. Nice picture. That gumdrop tree I didn't make but it would be easy to do. This one actually has hard plastic gumdrops and I think fishing line goes through the middle of each gumdrop, you can see that on the top red gumdrop. I think you could just hot glue the gumdrops on a styrofoam cone and add that string of green beads. You should paint the styrofoam cone first. Love to see it if you make one. I bought it at the Wreath Factory a few years ago.

  5. How fun!! All three of you had awesome gifts.. Love all your other creations. I'm your newest follower:)

  6. Oh, how fun! Wish I had crafting buddies! And I think your offering is fantastic! Cute image and I love those sparkles and ribbon.

  7. That is so cool! Looks like you had a great time. The projects are awesome. ;)

  8. I love that you met some of your online friends and I loved seeing all the wonderful things that you made for each other! I love your tag!!! I love the vintage feeling of the image and the holly at the top of the tag! All the projects were inspiring! I haven't done any baking yet!!! Winter break started tonight so next week it is cards and baking for me! Happy Holidays!
