Be Crafty {Friday Harbor}

A barn in the middle of San Juan island…at least I think it was in the middle. I got a little turned around driving around, so we’ll go with middle. It was the just the right location on a stunning island with gorgeous weather for a Be Crafty Workshop.

My friend Amanda has been hosting crafting workshops for several years. My sister often helps her. A while back we tossed around the idea of doing one in Friday Harbor together with our friend Sara Parsons. It was such a treat to step away from normal life for a bit and be surrounded by those girls.

A rustic barn. Simple and lovely decorations. Crafting. Photography. Old & New friends. My sister. It was so very good.

Refreshed by new and old friends. Encouraged by the ladies that attended. Inspired by the beauty of the island, the hospitality of the Parsons, the conversations with friends and the crafty setting. Thank you to those that came, those that helped, and my sweet friends that hosted. My cup overflows.

Sara Parsons (and her daughter Stella) captured these next two shots…I am so thankful for these girls and this time with my sister!
