Craft Group

Last Saturday I had a few girls over for some crafty fun. We had a blast! Here are a few pictures from our little get together.
I have no idea what was said but evidently I thought
it was HIL-arious and my Mom was not so sure.....out of control! :o)

Let the crafting begin! We did 2 different types of flowers (burlap with lace and black and white check with black tulle). We fastened a clip and a safety pin to back of each so they could be worn different ways. Oh and just an FYI I haven’t decorated my dining room yet. Just in case your wondering why there is nothing on the walls.

We gave my Mom a hard time because she had a HUGE glue gun. I told her, her crazy big glue gun could be our craft group mascot. It was out of control! I should have taken a picture of another glue gun next to it so you tell just how big it was.

It was great to see how everyone took the project and made
it their own. No 2 flowers were alike.
Nikki made a little flower collage which I LOVED!

Jennifer brought a bunch of butcher paper that we taped to my dinning room table. It worked out really well. When we were finished we just rolled it up and threw it in the trash. We used some extra tiles I had left over from a
project as resting place for our glue guns.

I had so much fun hanging with the girls! Hummm what should we craft next month?


  1. What a great idea! It looks like you guys had a great time!

    Love the pins, too!

  2. Looks like everyone had a great time! I like the burlap flowers you made. How did you make them?


  3. Hey! I've been lurking. Forget where I discovered your blog but I spent last night reading through all of your entries. I love thrift stores and crafting. I've gotten some great ideas from your site too! I've had a blog for years now but it's always centered around my four lovely ladies (5 and under)! I think it's time to dedicate an entire blog to my thrift stores finds and crafting. Thanks for the inspiration! : )

  4. I had such a blast! I can't wait to do it again :)

  5. This looks like so much fun! I have tried to do this around here but my friends aren't that into crafts! Love the flowers too! - What a great ladies night!

  6. I love this! Looks like you all had a lot of fun. If I lived in Texas we'd be best friends. haha.

  7. I love the flowers- both the burlap and the black and white one in your inspiration box. Do you have a tutorial for the black and white one? The burlap looks like I could figure it out, or at least something close!

    And I love that you live so close with your family and crafty friends that you can do that! I admit, I'm a little jealous! :)


I LOVE comments and read them all so knock yourself out! If you have a specific question, feel free to
e-mail me by using my e-mail link in the side bar. I would love to hear from you :o)
