craft-a-way camp 2015

last weekend was the 3rd annual craft-a-way camp and it was another fabulous year! craft-a-way camp is the brainchild of amy and ethan of small craft and they do a tremendous job of pulling this whole thing off. this year we had a full day of rain the first day and they quickly adapted and set up the workshops in our cabin. that same night the sky cleared and was followed by the most fabulous sunset. this made way for our annual sing-along campfire featuring 90s tunes, small instruments, and vegan s'mores! add in running around a field with sparklers and you've got the perfect summer night.

during our two straight days of crafting we attended workshops taught by amy cronkite, ethan cronkite, marcy davy, courtney fischer, and val willer. at the workshops we made stud earrings, made lanyards (out of gimp?!),  made macrame plant holders, did some weaving using things found in nature, dyed scarves with indigo, and screen printed banners. that's a lot of awesome crafting! there was barely any downtime as we found ourselves making lanyards and wrapping sticks with yarn when we weren't at workshops. there was some serious crafting going on! we also went on a beautiful hike with ethan leading the way teaching us about the surrounding natural area.

it was wonderful to spend two full days relaxing, screen-free in the woods creating with such a super group of people. we had a good mix of returning campers and new campers and we seriously laughed and had fun the entire time. craft-a-way camp holds a certain magic to it and it's hard to put into words. all i know is that i'm still in craft camp hangover bliss mode and i can't wait to do it again next year!
