I would never have thought I would be saying that I like this particular scent, but in this particular case I am loving it. The scent is of freshly laid carpet, and the freshly laid carpet is right here in our main lobby, with plans in February to cover the second floor as well. Deep colors of rust and brown compliment the furnishings perfectly!
Come craft with me!
If you are a faithful blog reader then you know you have learned a little bit about me these past, oh my, about 2 1/2 years now? Shall I quiz you now?
My favorite drink? My favorite hobby? My favorite color? My favorite food?
I know many of you who do read my blog, but for those of you I don’t know I would love to meet you! So, I have been toying with the idea of hosting a crafting weekend here at Interlaken! It can benefit both of us: you could get you away from it all doing your favorite hobby while I get the chance to meet and thank my faithful blog followers! Now, my favorite hobby is scrapbooking, but that doesn’t mean you have to scrapbook to be a part of my crafting weekend – eight foot tables will be provided so you can do your favorite thing. You can knit, quilt, stamp, paint, cross stitch, sew – the choice is yours. I will provide my favorite food and drink of course, so if you don’t know what they are already you’ll find out then! Like I said, I am just toying with this idea and haven’t even put a package together yet, but would absolutely love to know if any of you would be interested, so feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I would plan this fun event in the colder months (late 2012, early 2013) because (if you read then you know) I love to be outdoors when the weather is warm! I hope to hear from you soon!
