Recap: Mini Valentine's Day Bash

photo (17)Where do I even start to recap the Mini Valentine's Day Bash?!? Valentine's Day is one of my most favorite holiday and I was so excited for this event!I hosted this event at Loops.  If you are local and haven't been to Loops , it is a super fun and cute yarn store and the owner is just the sweetest for offering her entire shop for us to craft the afternoon away. My sweet friend Karen aka my Crafters Bash wing woman and Kim were so sweet to help me set up the day before an thank goodness we did because you never guessed what happen the next day. IT SNOWED and it kept on snowing! I was in pure panic mode! I knew were were expecting snow but it was suppose to happen way later in the day and honestly, I didn't think I need to come up with a backup plan. Thank goodness to awesome friends who calm me down that morning! I was so worried that the ladies weren't going to be able to make it yet alone myself. I have  anxiety when it comes to driving in bad weather. I quickly posted a message to see if the should reschedule the event due to the weather but let me know you. I have the best ladies who come to my event. They braved the bad weather and all but a few ladies weren't able to make it and luckily for me, my sweet friend Lesley came to my rescue and picked me up. I was in total shock. I couldn't believe that these ladies would risk driving in the bad weather just to come to my event. I have been so blessed to have met the most wonderful ladies who buy out my events and support me 110 percent. What started on a whim as turned out to be a blessing and I am so thankful that I get to host these events.
