Can you can, can, can?

Well, as a matter of fact, I do. Can that is. And I love it. I sometimes feel like an old lady picking things from our garden & then canning them for later but I'm totally fine with that. I really enjoy it and you know, it pretty hip to can these days. Haven't you heard all the kids talking about it? No? Well the older kids are and they're even having canning parties like back in the old days.

Take my girl Natalie, aka "nataliecreates," she's the cutest thing I've ever seen. She has a farm, a garden, she crafts, she blogs, she cooks, she has her own business, she cans - I mean, really, what doesn't the girl do?  She is just as inspiring as person as she seems online.

I had the privilege of meeting her at the Be Crafty OK event a wile back and have been a fan of hers ever since. She just has this way about her that screams joy & comfort.

So I'm sure you can imagine my excitement when the amazing Nats asked me to assist her at her first ever canning workshop at her adorable farm. And though we'd only met in real life once before, it's like we've been friends for life as soon as I walked through her door. Such a great feeling. I mean, to be honest, it felt like home. It was dreamy. I didn't take enough pictures during the workshop, as I was busy helping, so go check her post to see more fun from the day.

But in between helping score tomatoes, wash dishes and chat with the sweetest ladies ever that attended, I managed to snap a couple phone pics.

Have you ever watched How I met your mother? If yes, you'll appreciate this.

I posted this on Instagram with the caption, "today has been legend, wait for it, dary." You're welcome.

Each lady walked away with a jar of canned herbed tomatoes, a fun trifting adventure, a fully belly from the amazing goodness of Kara of arch+craft, a bag full-O-swag and new friendships to last a lifetime.

Thank you, Natalie, for welcoming me into your home & for hosting a fun event at your darling farm. Love you to bits. Can't wait to see what's up next for your farm!!!
