A Sweet Aroma: Blue Ridge Craft Weekend & a Giveaway

This weekend I had the incredible opportunity of going with 9 other ladies to the
Blue Ridge Mountains for a time of crafting_ hanging out_ shopping_ and sharing.
Can i just tell you how amazingly awesome it was.
I went not knowing really what to expect and a little nervous too. 
You know bc you never know how things like this will go.
You never know and i'm just being honest here, how 9 other ladies will wind up getting along.
But you know what there was.... a sweet aroma that hung in that mountain air.
I was left and took away the sweetest memories and some great new friendship. By each of them.
By the trip as a whole. From left to right here they are...

Upon arrival we were each met by a basket of swag with our name on it.
Swag = a basket full of handmade goodness. I felt like i had gotten to go to the "Oprah's favorite things" show. I mean really. Each item was something to ooh & ahh over. Lots of the items had been handpicked for color or preference from our etsy favorites. The thoughtfulness, right?.

Well not only did we get a basket full of swag but you have the opportunity to enter 
through Rafflecopter and win a basket, too. 
One winner will be chosen and announced on Saturday, Sept 22 to take away all of these lovely goods.
