Craftin' and Friendships ... at the Bloomin' Inn.

On Friday, 5 of us left for Pincher Creek to the Bloomin' Inn Ranch Bed and Breakfast.
Nancy, Leanne, Tamie, Jackie and myself packed up 2 mini vans FULL of crafting supplies and our "lightly" packed overnight bags and headed out (the "Roaming Red Barons"). A drive that would normally take 4 hours, took us ALL DAY due to the many stops we enjoyed along the way...yep, to shop, of course! What else!?! :) We met up with Melissa in Ft. MacLeod and then made us a 6-pack. We arrived in Pincher Creek around 8:30 in a massive wind/snow storm and were very thankful to be unloaded and in the workshop by 9 or so. A lot of creativity occured and some girls just took advantage of the "rest" time and did some chillaxin', got massages, went shopping at the Pantry, Country Store etc. Here are some photos of the weekend....enjoy!

Here is Nancy's van - LOADED!!
