Oh! And I forgot to mention - Alby played a session of Dungeons and Dragons with me last week, and he must have some great luck! He was rolling 20's like crazy all night!!

All right! Here's a few photos from my trip down to Gainesville, FL, last weekend. More can be found on Alby's Flickr Album for his visit with me this round:

On the road, we pulled into the SC Welcome Center for a pit stop. I think I have a photo of May from a previous round in front of the same sign. A mockingbird decided to land on the sign right as I snapped the photo of Alby!

One of the first stops in G'ville was at a brewery that opened up since we graduated and moved away. The interior of the tasting room was gorgeous - lots of reclaimed wood. I loved their motto "Inherently Floridian". They were also animal friendly (like most breweries) so we had some fun watching pups play (Sadly no photos of that).

The hotel we stayed at was on Bivens Arm Lake, so despite being landlocked, we got to see some water:

No trip to G'ville is complete without a visit to "The Swamp". Alby really matched the stadium well, but we had to sneak around and avoid making anyone think we were impostors from Auburn or something Wink

Alby also got to hang out with one of the many campus gators:

And saw some of the beautiful historic dorms built in the 1920s:

The Welcome Dinner for the wedding we were there for was held in the F Club (attached to the football stadium). I'm not really into sports, but I thought it was cool that the Heisman trophies were kept there. I asked Alby to sit in front of Steve Spurier's trophy Smiley:

I received such an amazing and beautiful shrine from WiccadWitch yesterday and it just blew me away!! She went with my Woodland theme and made a scene out of a very magical forest.

The shrine is tucked into a shallow box with lots of bark detail around the outside that match the trees inside:

Two gnomes hide among the mushrooms on the forest floor, as well as a magical mushroom fellow. There are shiny beads and a geode nestled in with them, too.

In the background, a fairy and dryad watch over, and several more shimmery fairies float like dots within the trees. The background fades off so perfectly!

I already have this terrific shrine hanging in my hallway with past crafted swap goodies. WiccadWitch, this shrine is such a piece of art! Thanks so much for being a terrific partner Smiley

Last weekend, Alby and I kept StudioANF company at her Spring Daze booth in Cary, NC. Alby was really supportive and helpful! The festival is usually one of the most enjoyable arts and crafts festivals in our area when it isn't raining all morning like last weekend.

We saw some fun things at the festival, like this cool owl wandering around, and an adorable old school trailer where someone was selling cupcakes.

My favorite bakery, La Farm, was also there. Anyone recognize the name or breads? Wink

The next day, we had brunch, sherbet mimosas, and a Tom Jones watercolor paint session with friends.

I hope Alby is having fun being dragged all around with me! Tomorrow we are headed down to Florida for four days, so we will be a little our of touch for the rest of the week.

I received my flag from Acadian Driftwood today, and it is perfect for my collection! The hand stitched wood grain is amazing and her stitches on the text are awesome too. I love how the bottom edge has very natural decayed wood tattered-ness to it Smiley

And here is the one I crafted for myself using scraps from the printed fabric swap - I carved the tree stamp and used textile ink for stamping it. The base of the flag is wet felted roving in lots of colors that I love.

And all of them from this swap together! So perfect Smiley

I'll have to take a bunch of better pictures in the daylight and with my previous swap flags after I get back home next week.

I received two beautiful flags from cmarion this week! She went with "Bloom" and "Flyte". I love all the fabrics and colors she used. The stems on the flowers are super interesting looking too. I need to try something like this next time.

I can't wait to hang all my new flags Smiley Thanks cmarion3!

Oh my goodness, that painting smock is adorable on Felicity!! I love all the "coworkers" too. Alby is spending a craftathon weekend with me and . I might have to make him a smock too because we are having a watercolor painting brunch on Sunday after swap crafting and a craft festival on Saturday Smiley

Here's some more from our weekend trip in Maryland!

I am such a nerd for structural things (which is probably why I am a structural engineer Wink), so on the return trip, the bride-to-be who was carpooling with me took some photos of Alby riding along as we went over the Chesapeake Bay Bridge:

While taking a pit stop in Baltimore to pick up my husband before returning to Raleigh, we decided to get a snack at R&R Taqueria - a Zagat rated taco place that my husband has been mentioning he wanted to try.

On the road again! I love the Virginia is for Lovers slogan everywhere, so while Mr. PB was driving, I managed to grab an on the move shot of Alby with a sign on the interstate again.

We grabbed dinner in Richmond and sat outside where we could see several VCU buildings in the city.

I also took this shot of Alby yesterday with my team's mascot at work - the Green Monkey. They were just "hanging out" Wink Grin

Here's another dose of photos from my trip with Alby over the weekend.

Full disclosure - this trip was for a college friend's bachelorette party that I helped plan. On the way from Baltimore to Ocean City, we wound up making a pit stop at a produce stand (we needed fruit for sangria Wink). Alby looked so pretty up against the flowers in one of the green houses they had behind the produce stand.

We rented a house for the weekend that was on a canal off Buck Island Pond.

Alby helped me decorate for the party. The theme was Gilmore Girls. I had never watched any episodes before the party, so I'm very thankful for the internet and Pinterest. Alby seemed to fit in well at the "Knitathon" corner.

After we set up and watched a couple episodes, we went down to the beach. It felt a lot like the beach I grew up on, except the colors were all different.

I'm really going to have to get better at taking pictures without my hand showing up. Sorry, waterbaby! Tongue

Sorry for the delayed photos! Alby arrived on Thursday, just in time for a speed-crafting date with my buddy StudioANF, then got packed up to head to Maryland with my Friday right after work. We spent the weekend on the road though, so Alby already got a good welcoming trip to kick off his stay!

He arrived with some craft supplies, so we will definitely be doing a project together at one of the next craft meetups I got to! His little traveling trunk is pretty adorable too.

He got to meet one of my kitties - Castor (and received lots of nuzzles), but Gemini was being camera shy on Thursday. We will try again this week.

We did some crafting together Thursday night. He helped with the prayer flags I'm making for another swap.

He went to work with me on Friday and saw how much of a messy desk I have (at work and at home! Tongue)

He also helped me when a round of Doctor Mario with flying colors during a break. We really showed Gregg who the Doctor Mario champs are! Wink

And I'll photos from our weekend trip for the next day or two so I don't hog the board today Smiley Can't wait to share! waterbaby, if you get impatient, you can see them all here plus some ones I didn't share here: Alby's Raleigh Visit Album

20  Re: Little Visitor Swap Round 23 (SU 4/1 - 4/15 SO 4/19 and 9/20) in ACTIVE SWAPS WHERE SIGN-UP PERIOD HAS CLOSED by PerfectlyBohemian on: April 06, 2016 10:49:38 AM
Hmm. I'm really tempted to join again It was fun showing off my city and bringing along a friend while traveling. Also had probably way too much fun with the scrap book I made for my last partner, too.

Felicity hasn't been out much lately either. I think Laurel (my full-sized Blythe doll) has been getting enough of her on the shelf lately. Cheesy I know I will be traveling from NC to FL in May, going to the coast in June, to a farm in VA in August, and doing some camping towards the mountains at some point this summer, but my big trip for the year (to Germany) isn't until fall - bummer! Still a lot of stuff to do though.

GigglyGirl, your friends Gabby and Lulu are the sweetest little visitors I think I have ever seen and make me want to squeal with delight. I might have to pin them as inspiration for the strange doll swap when/if that happens Wink
