crafting at Ericas!!

Erica over at golden egg vintage took me under her wing about a year ago when I reached out to her. I was looking for a blog friend, she has been the most wonderful one. I am sure you all know her blog but if you are in for a treat!!

This is a photo off her blog and I got to see this with my own two eyes!!!

Erica invited a few of us locals over for some holiday crafting. I not only finally got to meet Erica but I got to meet Deb from garage sale gal who was an absolute sweet heart and lovely Tammy from Tammy's in Love who is currently on a blog break. You all were so much fun to meet and I was thankful to be part of such a fun day and meet my bloggy friends!!

Erica had some great stuff in store for is... this is a little peak...
Our starter boxes from Erica..eek!!

 Debs glue sticks were a little long!! LOL
Look at the box of mercury beads... Erica had boxes just like this filled with trees, bells, angels..etc, etc!! It was glorious!!

Can you imagine sitting in that wonderful vintage filled cozy home crafting? 
I didnt want to leave!!

Here are our finished santa chimneys

Not only did I feel so lucky to be at Ericas with these ladies then Deb surprised us with a gift that I still cant believe she gave me ;)

Seriously?? Yes!! I love him so much, my new collection!! Thank you again Deb, you made me one happy gal!! I found another santa mug at the thrift this past weekend, so now I have two..and so it begins!
