Blogger Crafter-noon

Last weekend, Abby of Les Bottes D'Eleanor was kind enough to host a little Akron blogger get together. The idea was to have an afternoon of crafting, snacks and general blogger networking and workshopping. All of those things were accomplished in addition to taking pictures and girl talk - so it was a definite success!

Abby (who conveniently lives in the same neighborhood as me!) had the cutest craft and snack tables set up for when we got there. 

Yep, those are rice krispy treats made from fruity pebbles made by Megan and they were soo good! Jessica brought local favorite Aladdin's Hummus (the.best.) and I made a quinoa and bean salad. 

Abby had the great idea to make fun collages out of old magazines, of which she had a huge stack. I love making magazine collages because flipping through the magazines is almost as fun as piecing together the cut out pictures! 

Above is my little collage project. It would be fun to do a series of them and then frame them as part of a gallery wall, wouldn't it? 

I'm so glad Akron has such a great community of bloggers. I love the variety of unique and interesting ladies I've met through this little hobby we share. 

Thanks again, Abby! 


  1. You ladies are all so cute, love this idea and those snacks look so yummy!

  2. Thank you for your company, Rachel! It was a great crafternoon, and I can't wait to have another!

    We have a gallery wall with collages at work, and it's pretty cool (the different frames make it really neat, too)!


  3. An awesome day indeed, so inspiring! :D

I have been functioning seriously challenging, many thanks for allowing me to share the actual along with you.

  5. This looks like such a fun crafternoon! I LOVE Aladdin's (yep! I'm from the Akron-Canton area, too!)!

  6. Ugh, totally wish I could've made it to this! :( this summer has been a crazy whirlwind. Hopefully we can all do something fun in the fall!
