Carolina, Crafty Chica & Contest Winners
I’m back from North Carolina. It was a great trip except seriously, I have the worst travel karma. I got stuck in Atlanta when there were maintenance problems with the plane so in order to not completely miss all of the meetings I was scheduled to be at, the company had to hire a car to drive me from there to Asheville (about a 3 1/2 hour jaunt). A trip through the country in the back of a town car, driven by a lovely Czech gentleman who happily turned on NPR for me while I worked on my laptop is hardly roughing it, so I’m really not complaining–I’m just saying that my travel history has reached comical levels (see former posts about driving over the border to Canada, being caught in a record-making blizzard, changing in the cab in Colorado for an event we were 2 hours late for due to flight delays, etc.). Anyway, from what I could tell Asheville seems like such a great little town! It has a New England look, but an Austin feel to it. Sometime when I’m there for more than 24 hours, I’d love to see more than just a few blocks of it.
Alright, without further ado the winner of the Kim & Kelley “Lemon Drop” scarf kit (and yes, I did actually put all of your names in a bowl and drew one out–I’m old school like that) is: TURVID!
Hey Vicki! I live in Asheville. Did I miss an appearance or something 🙁 That is so not cool…
And you know, 20/20 says that Asheville is the happiest place in America. I love it here. Come back when you can visit longer!
Beth–No, you didn’t miss anything. I was just there for some meetings. 🙂
Yes, Ashville is awesome! There’s a whole lotta craftin’ goin’ on there & in NC, in general- you should plan an event or appearance. marg
I lived in Asheville for many years. It is a very beautiful place that friends and family tell me keeps getting hipper all the time. I live in Seattle now.
and thank you so much!
