I am home from my trip, and for some reason I am having a hard time getting back into my routine! I have had bloggers block about writing this post. Quite frankly, the thought of capturing the weekend in a blog post is completely overwhelming! I will say that I was beyond thrilled to meet Jamie, Janel, Nicole, Rachel and her beautiful family, Jen, Talisha, Kristin,Katie, Angela, Mandy and Kim (who have the cutest mother/daughter relationship!), Elsie and Jeremy, Erin and Will, and Haley.

One of the most exciting aspects for me is that Janel taught me how to crochet! I have avoided learning this skill like the plague (always seemed too fussy), but now I am slightly obsessed.

I actually have a good use for all of this yarn! I have already completed one project...

But this is not it. :) Inspired by this adorable owl clutch I bought from Elsie,

I made this pug purse. Go ahead and laugh--it's pretty horrible! I think I need some more practice...

On a totally unrelated note, I joined Twitter this morning. There is a little link on the sidebar if you want to follow me.

Hope all of your weeks are going well so far!

for just learning how to crochet, your purse is amazing! i have known how to crochet since i was six and i have yet to teach myself how to do anything but crochet in a straight line... which means, a lot of blankets and scarves... ;-)

anyway, i'm impressed!
