Hey guys!  So, I'd really love to do another meet up...maybe in the fall sometime?  Late October to November is my favorite time to drive in Michigan!

Does anybody have any ideas of a place to meet up?  I know we've done Lansing, Royal Oak, and Frankenmuth...

I'm in Royal Oak (near Detroit) and I'd be willing to travel, if there's someplace awesome to go!

Wow! It must have been fate that brought me in here tonight!

I was so sad to miss the Royal Oak meet. I can't even remember what happened. I just remember being super busy and then suddenly realizing on Monday, that I'd missed the meet. Dang!

Looks like it was a good meet. Great picture. It's good to have faces for the names!

Anyway, life slowed down a bit and I was cleaning out the craft cave today. Made me itch to craft and logged on here to see what was up! And here you are looking to plan another meet!

I hope to make the next one and I'll think on suggestions for a location. Isn't there a DIY Fair in Ferndale sometime in the fall? I'll have to look into that.

Well, I'm off to reaquaint myself with Craftster!

Ferndale would be good - I remember when it was kind of an icky place and now it's all trendy and nice!  Ofcourse I worked there when it was mildly icky still. Cheesy

I don't know of anything nearby that is amazing right now, but I'll keep my eyes open.

I was sad to miss the last meet up, it was even on my birthday.  I am moving to the area in September though, so I'll be checking out this thread to find out the next place.

Ooh, me too! I've only made one meetup and would love to get back in touch with some of you local ladies! I finally made it out to Frankenmuth and wish I had gone with you all. I'm in A2, but I can go anywhere!

It would be great to see you again, Banga! Smiley  My daughter still talks about how you took the time to show her how to do ATC's. Smiley

She was so cute! Love a crafty kid!

Anyone know about the Ren Faire in Holly? When or even where that is? Could be fun for a meetup!

RenFaire is August 22 - Oct. 3rd weekends. 

I know that I'm going at least once with my hubby.  I get free tickets - they trade tickets for ads in the college papers.  We love it! Smiley

I am, thanks, and I hope you all are great as well! I've been a little absent from craftster for a while after a new job and a move, and now on the job hunt again for fall! Crazy times, but I'm still around!

I'm so glad you're still in Michigan, Banga!  I thought you had moved back east.

We have always meant to go to the Ren Fest, but we've never actually gone!

You and the hubby would love RenFest!  Kevin wasn't thrilled the first time, but then he got into the spirit of it and now he likes it. Smiley  Last year we dressed up and that was fun too.

We're workin' on it, but the job world isn't cooperating! Maybe in a few more years...

I would love to go to RenFaire, so I need to start working on the husband for that one Smiley

I have only been to the Ren Faire once, but it would be a spectacular place for a meetup, I believe.

I missed out on the Royal Oak meet up and it was only 25 minutes away. Cry

I hope I can make the next one.

Ferndale sounds good.

I had a blast at the last meet-up, so I'm definitely in for something!! I'm in Flint, so you guys don't want to come here... but anything within an hour or so drive I'll try to make.

Oh- I'm at the RenFaire off and on this season. If anyone is going and wants to PM me ahead of time, we could possibly do a mini-meet-up.

Any new plans for a meet up this fall? The DIY fair is this weekend in Ferndale. I was just down there and they have many more vendors than last year.
There are a few more art fairs this year. You all did a project last time you met up didn't you? Ther are a lot of art stores that will set up a special project if you have a group of people coming in....

Someone please sned me a message if something does come up!

Thanks,

Beth
