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!

    Christina says:

    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. :)

    Kendra says:

    Oh my gosh! You have to do this again later in the year! We’re moving out to Fort Collins in June and that would be so much fun!

    I would LOVE some crafty fun time! I live in Fruita– about 4 hours away but I would totally drive over the mtns. for some inspiration!

    Day is better so I can leave the little ones with my grandma. I don’t have much else to add except I am SUPER EXCITED to hang with some crafty ladies :)

    Brianne says:

    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!

  12. 12

    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!! ;)

    Charlotte says:

    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.

  14. 14
    Kelly says:

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

  15. 15

    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!

    Jessica says:

    If you want to drive over to Grand Junction, the Two Rivers Winery is fabulous and there are 10 rooms available to rent. And then I could come!! :-)

    not in the area…but it sounds like too much fun. depending on the whens and wheres i would definitely look into making the trip.

    Becca says:

    Me! Me! Me! I live in SE Aurora, love your blog and would totally be up for some crafting. Some of my favorite tutorials were the flip flop series, ruffle dress and little boy jeans. Keep me posted on what you decide.

    Kristina says:

    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.

    Sounds fabulous! I’m in the Boulder area, so an easy drive to Denver for me!

    I would love to come and might be able to pull it off…I live down by Cortez area.

    Kristin says:

    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.

    • 22.1
      Ashley says:

      Haha……I wasn’t really joking. But also didn’t really organize anything. But I really would like to meet you guys who are so close!

    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!

    Marie says:

    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.

  29. 29
    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.

  30. 30
    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).

  31. 31
    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’m from Grand Junction and would LOVE to hang out……..

        Hi Ellen! I just looked at your website…you’ve got tons of cute stuff on there!
        I could probably learn a lot from you…I’m a total newbie.
        I saw your post above that you recently moved to GJct. Welcome to the area! :) Where are you from?

          Katherine says:

          I’m from Grand Junction too….funny how all these west slope people are on here…I always thought it was the UT bloggers having all the fun. lol

    Wow! You have a lot of readers in or near Denver. Denver is one of my favorite places to visit. I’d love to join you if only I could teleport there for free and have someone watch my first grader after school for me. Hey Santa, can you work that out?! ;-)

  35. 35
    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)

  36. 36
    Brandi says:

    This would be great! I’m in Arvada (NW of Denver) and would love to meet up!

    That would be so much fun, but I’m in California and I have a baby coming at the end of January. I hope all of you girls have a great time and don’t forget the pictures!!

    Jennifer says:

    I ilve about 3 hours from Denver, and I would love to come! Just let me know ahead of time. As far as what to do , food and chat has my vote, but whatever works too!

    Melissa says:

    I would love to meet up! I justmight have to come out if you do this! It would be fun to be a part of this! But if I can’t…. I still want to come in the spring sometime when Robin can maybe come up too! I am dying to see you! Love you tons!!!

    Valerie says:

    I vote end of January – when it starts to get gloomy.

    My husband knows of a HUGE conference area and is working on getting it for a decent price for us. Let me know and we can work it all out!

    Chance says:

    I’m in! I think a fabric exchange and/or small crafty make and take would be fun! Maybe peeps could donate supplies for a craft and/or bring a treat or appetizer to share! Saturdays are great! Let’s do this! I am in the Denver area and would love to help in any way! Just let me know what we need to do! Mid Jan. or anytime in Feb. work great! Thanks for initiating a get together!

    • 49.1
      Ashley says:

      Yeah, I’ll have to work on some details to find donated supplies. Hmmmm……there are places in Denver who might be interested, I’m sure.

  50. 50

    What a blast this could be! Let me know! Email chain? I am in Denver! Great idea~

  51. 51
    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 . . .

  52. 52
    Brianne says:

    Seattle! I happen to know your cousin, Brad, who lives here. I’m sure they’d let you stay at their house :-).

  53. 53
    Cathy says:

    I live in Col. Springs and would definitely make the drive up to Denver for a little meet up. I’m up for lunch/dinner or a crafty time or anything!

  54. 54
    Katy says:

    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!

  55. 55
    Nikki says:

    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.

  56. 56
    Jennifer says:

    I live in Oklahoma but Denver is only 8 hour away!! If the date was right I would TOTALLY come! :0)

  57. 57
    Amy says:

    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!).

    • 57.1
      Ashley says:

      Amy, THANKS for all the ideas and suggestions. Love it! I’ll have to look into those venues. See you there! (Wherever “there” is!)

    Yes that sounds like fun! A Saturday would be better for me or a weekday and February would be good.. Would it be ok to bring my 8 month old son? I’m just and hour or so south of Denver.

    • 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!

  61. 61
    Shannon says:

    I would totally come! Live down in the Springs so Denver is totally do-able!!

    Can you please come visit Oklahoma?! I wish I lived closer…..sounds like so much fun!!

    Tami says:

    I know who you met, because she is one of my facebook friends and mentioned she met you! Stephanie is her name :) And I’ll have to make sure my SIL who lives in Fort Collins sees this post :) I, unfortunately, live near Raleigh, NC, so no trip for me…although I am planning on visiting my bro next Fall….just sayin’ And, yeah, it’s a small world, yes?

    • 63.1
      Ashley says:

      Oh how funny! That must be her!! And darn, we were just living in Savannah 6 months ago, so not far from you at the time. I wish I would have planned something like this in Atlanta. Bummer.

    I’m in Denver and would love to meet up with everyone!

    I live in the Broomfield area and would love to meet everyone!

  67. 67
    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.

    I live in Manitou Springs (just w of Colorado Springs). I don’t think I could leave my baby here while I take a trip to Denver… but I might be able to attend if I can bring him.

    Crafts/dining/anything sound good to me. :)

    • 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? :)

  72. 72
    Ally Lott says:

    This would be totally fabulous! I live an hour north in Greeley. BTW– any fellow crafters living up in N. CO who’d ever want to get together and have some sewing, gluing, crafting fun?

      I’m in FoCo and NONE of my friends are crafty!! Maybe we can get together. However, this meet up sounds like a blast!

    Shannon H says:

    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.

    It was me at church:) It was so fun meeting you! Your kiddos are just as darling in person! I SO wish I lived in Colorado and could meet up, but I actually live in Ohio.. Seeing how I have in-laws there though, maybe I will get lucky and be there whenever you schedule this! Sounds like SO much fun!

    • 77.1
      Ashley says:

      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!

    Wilma Payne says:

    What a cool idea!! I live in Pueblo, and would love to drive up, depending on the date of course. I work, so a weekend would be best, and February would be better for me than January or March.

    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!!

  80. 80
    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.


  81. 81
    Jen says:

    Such a great idea. I just moved to Parker, CO over the summer. I vote crafting and food!!!

    Julie Denney says:

    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. :)

    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. :)

    I’m just north of Denver – I’d love to come!

    I would LOVE to! We started out in Rexburg and moved to Denver a year and a half ago. Food and chatting or food and crafting works for me. 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!

      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!

    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.

      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.

    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.

      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?

      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!

      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.

    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!

    Oooooh, I would love this! I am in Boulder and am available whenever– I will make it work :) :) And I love the idea of Front Range fans meeting up– that sounds like the funnest group ever!

    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!!!

    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.

    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!

    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!

    I grew up in CO and was just there for Thanksgiving… wish I could come out for this get-together! How fun!
