photos were taken, paper was layered and sewn, smores were made, thrifting was accomplished, ukulele's were played and we stayed up entirely too late, chatting and laughing. Jessica and I got to spend some times crafting!! because really, what else would 2 crafty souls do? I made her a book cover for her travel journal. (thank goodess for saving leftover scrap paper, you can whip something cute up in no time.) She had one color request for yellow+teal+orange, which lead to our many discussions throughout the weekend, about my disdain for orange at the moment, but for Jessica, I couldn't say no.
Prior to their arrival, I made them a little welcome basket for their room. I love the idea of creating a B&B type atmosphere, and it's just something simple to make your guests feel comfortable while they stay in your home.
Jessica and Jeff are truly talented and wonderful people. Jeff was fantastic with the kids, (he may or may not want this shared) but... Alaina talked him into playing Barbies more than once throughout the weekend. It was cute, she was so smitten with him.
So, my new travel/crafty friends departed yesterday. I'll miss them both, Jessica's company and Jeff's awesome ukulele playing!!
