In total, we traveled 20,350 miles (32,558km) to make it happen!
On October 18, 2014, six card hobby blogging BABES met in real life! BABES stands for Benevolent Association of Beloved Esteemed Stampers....and here we are:
Meeting for the first time!
From left to right (seated) is Anita from France, me (Geri) from Manitoba, Canada, & Ardyth from Ontario, Canada. Standing left to right are Kim and Darnell, both from California, USA, and Bev from Wisconsin, USA. We're not sure where the muscle man in the background is from!
Here are just a few pics of our fun adventure! There will be more once my camera makes its way home! I forgot the dang thing on the counter at the lake house! THANKFULLY Bev and Anita noticed it and rescued it for me.
Crafting in pj's - great! Snowflake" - the resident Albino squirrel with pink eyes!
Is she (or perhaps he) not the sweetest thing ever?
|Yes...2 pairs of reading glasses!|

Darnell & Anita, relaxing and snapping some beautiful scenery pictures!
Early morning crafting!
I've edited my post to copy & paste this MAGNIFICENT picture from Kim's blog! Not only is she an incredibly talented card artist, but the girl takes a mean photo! Thanks Kim!
Another fabulous picture 'borrrowed' from Kim's blog!
The week flew by so fast! We talked, we laughed, we sang, we drank copious amounts of coffee, we went out for dinner every night (hey....it`s a holiday), we snacked, we toured, and we crafted. My return trip totaled 2771 kilometers/1731 miles which translates to approximately 28 hours of highway driving...but I'd do it all over again in a heartbeat!
Six women - complete strangers in real life, best friends in blog land....and now friends forever!
We turned a dream into reality!
