Just a few thoughts……Wanna Meet Up (in Colorado)???


First of all………..anyone who hasn’t already, be sure to enter the Hellmann’s/BlogHer giveaway here for $100 to cooking.com. (This giveaway isn’t very full…..so your chances are lookin’ good!) You could use that gift card on yourself or for Christmas gifts. Who doesn’t like a pot, pan, or kitchen gadget of some kind?!!

. . . . .



Okay, this is kind of random but I keep hearing more and more of you are from Colorado.  In fact I just met the cutest girl with darling children on Sunday who was visiting my church and who also knows about this crazy Make It and Love It blog……….and then I didn’t even catch her name.  Ack!   (Hi again!!  And sorry.  Next time we’ll have to run out to the parking lot and chat.  It’s much quieter out there! Ha.)  Anyway, it just reminded me that there are lots of you readers here in this area.  Why in the world do you not live in my neighborhood?!!


Anyway, I should have done this while in GA (so sorry my Georgia friends) but does anyone want to meet up in the Denver, Colorado area?  (Yeah, that’s the U.S……..but if any of you want to fly in from overseas, you are more than welcome to.  But I can’t promise that this would be worth the airfare.  Ha. Maybe in a couple months or so? 

The end of January?  Maybe February?  I really wanted to do something in December……but there is just so much holiday stuff going on, it’s just too busy of a month.  And, I don’t actually live in Denver but I’m willing to drive.

This is so informal and nothing is actually planned.  I just keep thinking I would love to meet up with some of you that live near me.  And I don’t know……….make something, talk about making something, or pretend we’re going to make something and just chat.  Whatever works.


And hey, if only one of you were available, it would be worth the drive.  I just thought it would fun to do a little meet up.


But before I go any further, is anyone interested?  I can’t guarantee sparklers or fancy decorations……..and I promise you it won’t look like this:

(But aren’t those flowers gorgeous?!)


…….but I just thought it would be a good excuse to meet other semi-local readers/crafters (and please, if you don’t actually craft and just read the blog for fun……I would totally love to chat with you as well).  And then some of you could meet each other too…….and hold your own little chatty/craft groups.  Hmmmm…….thoughts?


And as long as I’m asking questions:




  • Would you like to make something?
  • Have a Q&A?  (I have all sorts of secrets…..okay, not really.)
  • Talk about project fails?  (I have plenty)
  • Have a fabric/craft supply exchange?
  • Share sewing traditions?  Or favorite sewing supplies?
  • Eat treats? (sorry, but this one is a must!!)
  • Meet at some swank restaurant and just eat and gab?
  • Compare shoe sizes?   Toe nail polish?  Ummm…..favorite dish soap?



Okay, and a few bigger questions:


  • Does anyone know of a good gathering place in Denver, CO?  Maybe a reception hall, a conference room, a, uh, …..I don’t know.  A really big bathroom lobby? ;)
  • Does anyone own such a venue? (let me know your prices)
  • Or would most of you just prefer meeting at a restaurant?
  • And how is the end of January looking?  Or February?
  • Does anyone have an opinion on a weekend or a weeknight?  (I’m thinking a Saturday…)



Anyway, am I the only one who wants to see who else is in the area?  (And those of you out-of-towners?  Maybe in a year from now, we could do something fun like this in Dallas or LA or Boston.  I don’t know.  We can dream, right?


I know this is random and totally unplanned……but I am the best un-planned party thrower.  Ever.  ;)  They are the least stressful, right?  Let me know if you’re interested or potentially interested.  This could be fun! 


**And please remember that there will be no hand sewn appliqued table cloths, triple dipped homemade chocolate truffles, or fancy bunting with everyone’s name on it.

Key words: Low Key.



Enjoy the rest of your day.

(I have a bathroom to clean and a sick little one to tend to who will be waking up from his nap soon.  You?)

    I’d love to meet up, and also live in the springs. By the way, do you have your Chrstmas tree yet? If you drive up to Woodland Park, you can cut your own for about 20 bucks. Fun!

    I’m north of Denver by about 90 minutes, but I’d love to come! Crafty ladies on the coasts and in Utah always get meet-ups, so it would be awesome to have one in Colorado. I think making something would be a lot of fun and a swap even more fun. I’m open to anything.

    Heather says:

    Being all the way over in Idaho Falls, I’m thinking I won’t make it this time around. :) BUT, should you do it in a year again or if for some random and completely unexpected reason I happen to be in CO this coming Jan/Feb, I would LOVE this! It would be such a fun time. And if you are able to pull it together in a couple months, PLEASE blog about it! Those of us who aren’t able to make it this time around would sure love to be part of the fun, even if only through blogosphere space. :)

    Hey! This is such a good idea. I just moved to Denver and so it would be really great to get together with some fellow mamas, crafters, or just girls! I live in the surroundings of denver, so I would totally be down. I grew up in Denver and just moved back, so I know a few things and places. We should talk….ill hit you up on FB!

    I’m in Santa Fe, NM, about 5 hours from Denver… I would definitely consider coming!! I can just let my husband know that I’m not the babysitter anymore!! ;)

    That would be so awesome to do some kind of get together. I would love a make it- take it kind of event. I am in the Parker/Aurora area. It would be great to have a crafty kind of mini-getaway.

    I’m about an hour north of Denver, so it sounds fun. I would have to see when it get closer!

    Oh, and regarding what I would like to do…. ANYTHING! Making a simple crafty thing would be fun, but so would eating/snacking/chatting/relaxing!

    That would be super fun! I live in Denver, around the DTC area (think south-central I-25 corridor). My vote is FOOD. Like a restaurant. Hacienda Colorado in Parker (I-25 and Lincoln) has a group room that the LDS Business Network uses every month. It can fit quite a few people.

    Me! When you said wanna meet at the IKEA in a previous post I was bummed that you were joking (or so I thought) and you wouldn’t want to meet up with your crazy blog stalkers. ;) But you’re serious! So me!!!! I’m in the Metro area as well.

    Meg says:

    I’ll probably be visiting the in-laws in Littleton sometime in there. I would LOVE to “coincidentally” plan my trip to match up with a craft/chat/whatever session.

    Make it and take it with lots of treats sounds great to me!

    I’d love to get together. I actually talked to you about the possibility of teaching a class months ago. I’m in Aurora and I’d love to learn any tips or tricks you have for a beginner sewer. Besides that you have a million great projects that I want to try that I haven’t yet due to my inexperience.

    new leaves says:

    I’m in the Denver area. Craft, gab, food or any combo thereof would be great! I lean to weekends but can work out evenings.

    I can think of a few fun spaces, but they’re all on the smaller side. Let me know if you need help with this once details are a bit firmer.

    Sarah says:

    Sounds fun! I live about 30 minutes north and my hoa has a great room we could rent…just a thought. Too bad it’s not summer…we also have a fun hoa pool with slide where the kids could play.

    jesser says:

    You had me at CO ;) … born and bred, live just NW of the city. There are plenty of places to meet up. For larger things I most often use our HOA clubhouse (there are tons of those) but that might not be the thing. Seeing as it’s crafty-related, Club Workshop (http://www.clubworkshop.com/) might be a good place to meetup. I have not been there myself but I understand it’s very big. For a smaller group, there are nice rooms of many sizes at Wynkoop brewery. I’m sure others will have even more (and probably better) meetup location suggestions. Cheers! Always fun to meet crafty ladies (and gents).

    Erica says:

    Sounds like fun! I could leave my 3-year old with the in-laws. But I’ve got a baby who absolutely refuses to take a bottle, and she’s a horrible car traveler! So a 6-hour drive including 5 hours of crying does not sound appealing (trust me, we did it last month!)
    I’m in Delta….I’d love to know who the Fruita and Grand Junction people are…they’re only an hour away!

        I saw your post above that you recently moved to GJct. Welcome to the area! :) Where are you from?

    Tina says:

    I am just west of Denver in Lakewood…it would be great fun to get together and meet other crafty Colorado ladies! If it’s a small group 10 or less, we could use the conference room at my office. Nothing fancy but it’d be free space. :o)

    Kara says:

    I’m in Westminster! Would LOVE to do something like this!
    I think it would be awesome! I’m not super crafty myself (little things here or there), so I don’t know about the exchange (don’t feel I would have lots to give).

    Keep us updated! Weekends are best, but could work out an evening.

    So excited . . .

    I saw the title and got so excited…and then I realized we’re going to be back in CA by the end of January. Boo! We moved here from Boulder this year, but we’ll be back for Christmas. We’re staying until the second week of January, so I had hope! But I’ll probably miss it. I’ll watch though, and if it happens earlier than you’re thinking, I’ll be there!

    I am moving to Denver in March/April and would love to meet up if your gathering gets delayed or you decide to repeat. I will be in need of crafty friends! I am always up for making something or an exchange sounds fun.

    Oooooooh, it would be AWESOME to meet up in Denver! I’m actually close enough to make a weekend work (although I admit to feeling totally unworthy of the presence of y’all! hehe).

    Would you like to make something? YES!!!
    Share sewing traditions? Or favorite sewing supplies? YES!!!
    Eat treats? (sorry, but this one is a must!!) uh, OF COURSE!!!
    Meet at some swank restaurant and just eat and gab? That sounds super fun!

    end of Jan/start of Feb sounds fab, and a weekend (Sat!) is a must :D There are TONS of places we could meet – the Tech Center has lots of nice hotels with various sized conference rooms. Downtown there’s a hotel called the Curtis that has some really fun and swanky decor (google it, you’ll see what I mean! When we stayed there we had to go to each floor to see the decor hehe!).

    • 60.1
      Ashley says:

      Totally. As it gets closer, and if we do crafts, I will mention that bigger kids will need to stay home (just so there isn’t craziness with running around and such) but babies are welcome. As long as they don’t chew on cords or pull on glue guns. ;) haha!

    Michele N says:

    I’m not in Colorado so I wouldn’t be able to join, but if you ever come back to Boise, I’m in! Although we have a hard enough time trying to get 3 or 4 of us together to craft at a time. We’ve managed one candy making day so far and trying to get together this weekend either for more candy making or to sew Christmas presents & teach my bff & daughter how to sew. I would do a small craft project & some sort of exchange. Even if it’s bring scraps, combine into small quilts/blankets or hats or stuffed animals & then donate them to a local children’s hospital or something.

  68. 68

    I’m in the Broomfield area (just north of Denver) and would love to meet up! Ashley, as a spin-off idea, would you be interested in starting a facebook group or google group for crafters in the front range area? It would be fun to do a large meet-up, but it would also be nice to just find out who lives near each other for smaller meet-ups, too. Would anyone else be interested in this? Sometimes it’s hard for me to get too far away from home, so finding people who are really close to me would be so nice (hint, hint, all of you who said you live in Westminster or Arvada!). I’d be happy to start a facebook group, but I don’t have the platform for advertising it like you do.

    • 71.1
      Ashley says:

      Bring him!! As long as he’s small and isn’t pulling on glue gun cords, I’m sure he’d be fine. More details about that will come when I start finalizing some things. Deal? :)

    I would love to meet up and craft or chat. I live in the north suburbs of Denver but work in Westminster. I work at a school and we could probably use a classroom or gym for free…it wouldn’t be fancy but it would be a large space to host a crafting event or a larger group.

      Oh yay!!!! Your name is Steph! After you walked away I was like, “Ack….get back here so I can at least ask your name!” I know, it was crazy and my kids were getting antsy to get to class. But I didn’t realize you were from so far away. But yes, if you’re back in town early next year, let’s meet up. I think your two little ones you had by you were my 2 younger ones ages, right? Around 3 years old and baby? Anyway…….I’m glad you saw that note about you. Too funny! You knew just who I was talking about! :) Cracks me up. Thanks for saying HI!

    Raelynn says:

    I think this sounds great……being new to CO (OK I’ve been here almost 2 years) I haven’t meet too many friends that share common interest, so this would be great…Im in for whatever!!

    rachel says:

    Yeah! I’d love to do this. We just moved to Cheyenne so Denver isn’t too far away. I’d love to do it on a weekend and think a crafty night would be awesome. I’m not a big fan of the restaurant idea since I’m not sure how easy it is to talk to everybody when you’re seated down like that. I also think a craft supply exchange would be awesome! I have so many crafty things that I don’t use any more and so many I’d like to get:)

    • 80.1
      Ashley says:

      Oh wow, my husband is doing a clinical rotation right now in your E.R. Today is his last day so he doesn’t have to be so far anymore. But he has loved the rotation there.

      And you’re right about the restaurant. If there were only 8-10 of us, that would be different. But it sounds like we’ll need more of a mingling atmosphere.

    NorthWest Montana! :) It’s a bit far, I know. You’ll have to document this little get together for all of us out-of-towners. I’m totally jealous at how many of you are close enough. It’s so fun to get together with other crafty gals, or gals who love crafty things! What a fun idea!

    I would love to meet. How fun! What about meeting at a public library? They always have meeting rooms and since I assume you won’t collect money, it should be free. Maybe I can soak up some courage to try sewing clothing. :)

  86. 86
    Sarah says:

    It would be so fun to meet you! I live in southern WY and will totally drive down to the big city for a fun little event. Although I am due to have my own cuddly munchkin in January so we’ll see if I’m able to be super mom and pull it off or not. :)

By the looks of it, 80+ people might be too much for a restaurant :), but I am up for whatever! it would be so fun. Just don’t wait until April because I am having a baby then!

      Ashley says:

      That’s where we started too! We had one more stop in GA but are now in CO like you too. And yeah, the restaurant idea is out. There’s no way we would all fit or be able to talk while sitting down to eat. And congrats on your baby!

    Diane says:

    Yes! I actually started following your blog because I met you at a baby shower a few months back (it was Emily’s shower). A few of my friends and I used to have a craft night once a month and it fell apart. I would like to have a local person or two or three to start having a get together with again.

    • 89.1
      Ashley says:

      Oh how funny……that sweet little Emily! I was pretty new then, so everyone was pretty much a new face to me at that baby shower. But it was sure fun! Are you her neighbor? If so, we should meet up for something locally. :) If not, maybe this meet-up will introduce you to a few new people.

    Chelsea says:

    Oh, and wouldn’t a church cultural hall work great? I attend the Denver Stake center which might be the most centrally located, although it is more on the South end of Denver, depending on where everyone is coming from. Just an idea.

    • 90.1
      Ashley says:

      I thought of that too……but am worried now that it may get too big for a non-church related activity. I’m sure there are other places that will work. I just have to keep looking.

      Thanks! Ashley

    I am thinking of moving to Colorado in January and it would be super fun to meet. Does anyone live in Fort Collins? That’s where we want to move? Do you like it there?

    • 93.1
      Randi says:

      I moved to Fort Collins about a year ago, and we plan to stay forever. There’s a reason this place makes the list of Top Places to live year after year! There’s so much to do and it’s so family oriented! You’ll love it!

    • 93.2
      Ashley says:

      I don’t live there…..but I have a brother who does. And he loves it. And so does everyone else who talks about it. Good luck with the move! Hopefully you can meet up with us after you’re all unpacked.

    Cumorah says:

    Aah, that’s so sweet! I thought you’d never ask. :) I live in Colorado Springs {looks like there are several of us here} and would be thrilled to craft, chat, and eat with you! Restaurant and chatting. Sounds great. But can we load our crafting gear into a restaurant? Hmm… maybe a potluck and chatting and crafting. Sign me up for ham & red pepper dip. I think you will love it. And yes to a Saturday in either Jan or Feb. Sounds perfect. Post holidays, pre-warm weather…I will need something fabulous like this to look forward to! Thanks girl! See you soon!

    Does anyone even know where Walsenburg, Co is? That’s where I am from and if the weather cooperates and the day decided on works I would love to meet some Colorado bloggers! I have been trying to get up a list of Co Bloggers to do something like this and am glad you have taken the reigns!!!

    bee blessed

    Stephanie says:

    I live just outside of Denver, so I’d totally be up for it! It would be fun to do a craft, or even just talking about sewing and crafty stuff. A Q&A might be fun. Anytime is good. Keep me posted.

  98. 98
    Annie says:

    Hi Ashley,

    I would be up for anything. Sorry-I know that’s not super helpful in making decisions. I do think that restaurants are hard to hear people and conversations and my throat always hurts afterwards… so something a little more cozier would be nice!

    I say sometime end of Jan. or Feb.

    This will be fun!

    mary says:

    Oh I meant to tell you that if you are coming up via I25 we are between Trinidad and Pueblo- would love for you to stay the night in your travels if you’re that way- we have a great big house that we use for ministry purposes just like this!

    Sounds great! My SIL is in your ward actually- funny stuff. She’s in the primary pres. We might be there for Christmas. Would love to meet you again in Denver- we live in the Springs- but I’m sure we could get some people to come!

    • 103.1
      Ashley says:

      The Savages?? I think she told me about you. Ronnie sounds familiar! Anyway…..how fun. Be sure to tackle me down at church even though I’ll probably be rushing a child to class or calming a fussy baby! :)

    Carol says:

    I would totally love to come. I live in the Phoenix area but would be willing to make a visit to my Denver friends that time of year. You should really consider phx area! It’s much warmer that time of year. : )

    Kirsten says:

    I live about an hour north of Denver too but work in the Denver area and would LOVE to meet up:). I would probably best be able to make it in a Saturday during the day, so long as I convinced my husband that he has had his time for trips, and now I’m running off to meet complete strangers who love crafting like I do. I’m sure he’ll be super supportive:)
    Its dunny you’re suggesting this because ever since you said you moved to CO I’ve wondered if I might ever bump into you! Oh, and I’d be happy with doing anything, and early Feb would be my preference (then we could do valentines day crafts…maybe)!

    • 105.1
      Ashley says:

      Haha……I know what you mean! I told my husband my idea and he’s like, “You don’t even know these people!” I laughed and promised we would meet in a very public place. :)

      And hmmmm…..you never know, we may bump into each other. But don’t laugh if I look like a mess, trying to find a great bargain scrap of fabric at the fabric store. ;)

    Hey Ashley, I tried emailing you back from like a year ago but Im not sure if you ever got it, I guess your address changed. I would love to meet up sometime. I was hoping to actually visit you on our last road trip when we went to denver and colorado springs this past August, but never got around to figuring it all out.

    I dont know what the roads or weather is like in the next while, but I love a good road trip. I live in Colorado and live west of denver ( Email me I would love just a one on one sometime (well plus kids or even husbands). Id love to share some old college dance videos or photos ;)

    ALSO id be into a big craftin, snackin, idea talkin day with other fellow crafters sometime too. Weekends are a must for me. (else who would watch the kiddos during the adult craftin fun time)

    I would say February. Im always itching to get out of the house and travel then (of course I could use a tropical getaway each feb too!)

    Maybe you could get a hotel conference room. Maybe they would have some sort of deal if you suggested blog readers traveling could stay there in their hotel???

    • 113.1
      Ashley says:

      Hey RoShawn!!! Awwww, dancing memories, that would be fun! And yes, we need to meet up…….even if it’s some crazy crafting thing in Denver! :) And I know, the dreary time of the year is the best time to have something to look forward to. :)

Quite a few of us live in communities with club houses that you can rent out for $25-50. Or there is always the option of meeting at the Church for free. My birthday is January 16, sounds like the perfect day for a sew expo! I’d love to help plan. I love to plan parties! I love to sew, what’s not to love!

In the meantime I will be a daily stalker and an occasional commentor!
    Have a great day! Hug your poor little sick one for me!

    I wish, but I don’t know if I could justify the drive from Salt Lake! We are about to close on a house and I can’t tell you how many of your sewing/crafting posts have inspired me! I have begun plans for furniture, bathroom, curtains, and I’ve made several of your kid tutorials for my little guy. I wish I could meet and thank you in person!! I considered starting a craft blog showing my work, but it would be a repeat (all track-backs!) of your blog!! :)

  131. 131
    Stephanie says:

    Ooooh – sounds fun! Go Denver! I would love for you to show us how to make something. Or have us bring our own supplies and make it right along with you (obviously something easy that doesn’t require sewing machines). And/or bring a few or a bunch of the projects you’ve shown us so we can look and touch them. And it should also be required that everyone bring something to eat and we’ll have some super yummy snacks.

    SO wish the US was as small as some of these European countries sometimes. It would makes these fun get-togethers easier! When I drive, 4 hours puts me through 4 different countries… and I can go from Amsterdam to London (ok that trip actually takes 5 hours by car)!!!

    I never realized you relocated to Colorado! That is excellent! I would be game for meeting up. I had no idea how many of us are from the Aurora/Centennial/Parker area.

    I used to live in Denver, and I work in Theatre so my recommendations may be expensive but they’ll definitely hold people! 1. The convention center 2. The Ellie Caulkens Opera House (rents out the basement) 3. Any of your local high schools probably rent out their theater for very inexpensive or free (great space if you ever wanted to do a workshop or live demo) 4. Racines Restaurant – it is delicious- has a free parking garage and can take large reservations 5. Let’s go bowling? For something informal and fun, Arapahoe Bowling Center has a great deal on games, and is close to I-25 (off Arapahoe Rd) (Oh, and my Dad owns it, so he might cut you a deal if you drop my name)

    Ok, I read through almost all of these replies and it looks like Parker / even Park Meadows is kind of in the middle of all these Denver areas…just sayin’. Would love to do this meeting thing. Maybe everyone could bring treats and something crafty to share…we could even make this an annual or semi-annual thing. What a great idea! BTW, what church do you go to? Please check out my blog http://loveitsewmuch.blogspot.com/. I’m new to this but excited! Would love to see you there!

    You know how sometimes you think you are the only one who is in the area a blogger is talking about and you feel so special that they are thinking of being in your area? Oh yeah, then you go to the comments section and there are about a billion other people who feel the same? But you feel special anyway because you have wanted to do a craft/sew night meet up anyways. Ok, so that only just happened but still.
    I’m in the Parker area and I know that the Lone Tree Rec Center and the Lone Tree Cultural Center (could be called something else) are both pretty reasonable during the day and could hold a larger crowd.
    Can’t wait.

    I had a thought: for those of us out-of-towners who travel, we could meet up with you sometime at the Denver airport! Yup, I would be willing. I fly United quite frequently and could have a long layover to accommodate a meetup.

    What a lovely idea! I live just 20 minutes north of Denver. Love your blog – totally patterned my bedroom after yours when you posted about those fabulous pillows you made out of Amy Butler fabric and it makes me happy every stinkin’ time I walk into my room. Please share deets when you have them!

    I just came across your cell phone holder and then to this page! I would so love to meet other crafters! I live in Littleton, but have friends who have a hall in Arvada that might be willing to let us use it!

    It depends on how many people and how big a space you would want. Living the Sweet Life http://www.livingthesweetlifedenver.com/home/ is a small bakery just off I-25 across from downtown and they have a small upstairs that is super cute and they rent it out. Also, for a bigger space that is super cool try Elliot Street Collective in NW Denver
    2460 Eliot Street, Denver, CO 80211 Phone 303-997-7763

    Also, near those two is The House of Commons (tea room) http://www.houseofcommonstea.com/default.asp

    All are centrally located near downtown Denver

    I’m in Aurora! I’d love to come to come to something like this! I’ve made a few of the projects you have posted over the years and really admire how you upcycle things. I think it would be a great treat to get together with you and other crafty mamas. :)

    Julie says:

    Wow a lot of people interested. Sounds like you need to make a Meet Up.com group to get this all together and organized. (especially for any local spin off groups :) ) I dont know much about the downtown area but I think some pubs have little back rooms that you can reserve, Breckenridge Brewery might be one of those, not sure. I think there is a scrapbook store in denver too. Michaels in Superior has a craft room that is available too if someplace closer to Boulder is needed. Would love to join up with you all!

    I’m in Denver and would be interested in coming (though I just stumbled across your blog today). I went to an etsy meetup at the central library – the central library (downtown) and all the other libraries have meeting rooms available, though I think the one at central is by far the biggest. http://denverlibrary.org/content/meeting-rooms There was food there so I don’t think that goes against their policy, though I’m not sure.

    Hi, Ashley.
    I’m from Brazil, borned in São Paulo and living in the Northeast of Brazil, Recife, Pernambuco. Beach, sun, good people. That’s the way we, brazilians, are: happy, cheerfully, funny.

    What happens here is amazing. Yesterday I was talking about one secret desire in my life: If possible and if I could choose a place to live, although my dreams about Europe, it would be Colorado. Just Colorado and its beauty! No matter where. Welcome to my life, Ashley.
    I’m following your blog and if you want to, follow mine. There is a translator online. Thanks again.

    I think we do live near each other! All of your pictures have the same view as most of my pictures! And I recognized the rec center in the picture from the run you did. (You probably saw a super pregnant woman running the same race…thats my sister….)

    I would be willing to come…let me check my schedule, and I would be able to bring 3 sewing machines. Can we also bring crochet and knitting projects?
