Craft Day!





Today was a day of skipping work {ok....it was a vacation day}, hanging out with some fun ladies, and crafting!

Thanks to Angie over at Sunshine in the House for sponsoring and hosting our craft day!

It was definitely a great time had by all.


Just a quick background....
This day was inspired by Meg at Whatever, and her craft weekends.
However, after the input of a few gals, we had our own craft day.
Plus, most of us brought our own supplies...which means no extreme costs!
:)
The best thing about this being local...we can hopefully have these more often!
I already have some ideas to share for future craft days.




My favorite craft of the day....making a new flower for my prized purse/camera bag.


The finished product!


I decided to sew the flower.  The other ladies that made something similar to this just used a hot glue gun.  And they still turned out great!
Some ladies hard at work.


Another craft was making tile coasters.

The hardest part for me.....deciding what papers to use!


In the end, this is a look at the colors I chose.
But, I will be adding more colors.  I just need to find my tiles first!  :)


Here's a look at some of the crafts!


 My new flower on my bag.  Did I mention I love it?!  :)


 My makes...a flower, coasters, and gift tags.
 

The goods.


I can't wait until next time!  Because there will be a next time.
I just hope my work schedule will allow me to attend more.

Hey Angie....I think I might send you my work schedule!  :)


Oh, if you would like to enjoy the delicious Sonoma Chicken Salad we had for lunch, head over to Angie's blog for the recipe
Usually chicken salad scares me.  But this was delicious.  I will be making this!


What have you crafted/created lately?

Yea for the coasters! I've been using mine a lot and they are still holding up! Thinking that they will be a great housewarming gifts and stocking stuffer for Christmas.
