A few weeks back I celebrated my 39th (and last) birthday. My very dear, talented and generous friend Terri Brush and I came up with an idea to celebrate called Cowgirl Campout!
We invited some of our friends and Terri hosted the most amazing weekend of crafting and friendship. I camped out at her house in style, me and Audree and the truck packed up our gear and headed down I-5 to Terri’s.
I stopped at the rest area to pee (bigtime coffee drinker from seattle, remember?) and parked next to this. I couldnt resist taking a photo of the two side by side!! Something else funny happened at the rest stop
(isnt this how all good stories start????)
A man walked up to me and asked me if I bought my truck from a guy named Myron. The answer is yes! I was over 150 miles from where I purchased the truck, but ran into Myron’s neighbor none the less! He recognized the truck right away. Such a small world!
Anyway, I arrived and was amazed and shocked when I saw all the trouble terri had gone to! She had her entire back lawn decorated to the nines with vintage sofas, floral arrangements, a huge pink tent, photobooth and much much more for the festivities!! It was so adorable I almost fainted!
Cowgirls started to arrive one by one, ready to hoedown and craft. They brought jacked up 4×4′s, and horse trailers turned hotel, it was so fun!!
Here’s more of what it looked like …..
I even dressed up Audree inside and out for the party!
As the sun set and the party got into full swing, there was a huge surprise. Girls started screaming and clapping and out came this!!! Can you believe it?????
Ok and as if that wasn’t enough, the next day our art classes were absolutlely phenominal. We made belt buckles, enameled necklaces and more. Here is a snippet of my buckles and a necklace I made.
If you ever want to join in the fun, I urge you to check out some of terri’s camps, they are fabulous as you can see! I will be at the fall Terri Brush Art Camp at the beach next!! To find terri, click here!
