Anything else I'm forgetting? Can't wait to get crafting!
I'll host. I'm thinking September Wed 19th, Thur 20th, Wed 26th, Thur 27th. Invites open to anyone. I just wanted to post it here first to test the water.
What do you think? Anyone want to do any of these?
Here are some of my ideas:
Mummy Head-Could be embellished to be really cool.
Embellished Halloween Items- We could pick a few items to do. Ex. pumpkin, witches hat, crow, etc.
We are getting ready to purchase our supplies and we have one quick question.
To make it less complicated on figuring out pricing and how much to buy, here are our thoughts on embellishments. If you want us to buy your embellishments, we will get everything you will need that night... except for scissors. There are no options of buying a little ribbon, etc. just a set price that will cover everything available.
For those that are bringing their own embellishments please let us know. Also, you will need to let us know if you want wood for your fireworks.
So far we have:
Ashley - bringing her own embellishments and we are supplying the wood.
Kendall - bringing her own embellishments and we are supplying the wood.
Rebecca - no wood or embellishments.
Amy - do you want us to buy you stuff even though you won't be coming?
Let us know soon... we hope to take care of this in the next two days. If we don't hear from you we will assume you want us to purchase the wood and embellishments for you.
I'd love to end Craft Group with a BANG and make these paper Firecrackers (Yes I'm a nerd)
Looks like that flag banner is made out of oil cloth. So cute for inside or out. Is that an oilcloth BBQ cover I see in the background? That girl has gone above and beyond....
'Patriotic Wall Art'
I was thinking it would be fun for us to do something like this, it reminds me of the Valentine's hearts we did last year when Amy hosted, but 4th of July style. We could do any shape.
It will take place at Rebecca's house at 8pm, Wed. March 14th.
I know this is a later start, but Doug is gone and I need time to get my kids to bed before our party. If you have any questions about the supply list or anything else let me know!
What we will be making:
Each person will make 8 soaps and 3 sugar scrubs with cute identifying tags.
What to bring:
-3 half pint size jars and lids for Sugar Scrub.
In my opinion, wide mouth is best to get out all the scrub. But really any metal or glass container with a screw top lid will do. Just make sure it holds 1 cup. These were not purchased because many of you already have some lying around your house.
-Medium size microwave safe bowl for mixing soap.
The kind with a spout if you have it (like pampered chef kind) or a glass measuring cup would even work too.
-regular size muffin tin
This is our soap mold. We will also have other shapes to choose from. If you have a fun shaped muffin tin you would like to use, bring it.
-(Optional) Embellishments for tags
We will provide supplies to make tags including paper, twine, burlap, a few buttons and ribbon. Feel free to bring some scraps from home to use for your tags or jar lids. We will have everything from the bin available also.
Looking forward to a fun night!
I can host craft night one of the following nights, so please vote on the poll. It will close Saturday.
Wednesday, March 14th
Wednesday, March 28th
Just a note, the sidebar shows Carrie and Callie hosting in April, so the 28th may not give them enough time to execute a craft in the time. Something to consider...
Also, the men's basketball tournament will be over, but open gym will still be going on for those husbands who want to attend this. We may always have a conflict here depending on which night Harmony is assigned.
I am waiting for the Men's Basketball Tournament schedule to determine the date of craft night because I know this effects several of us. As soon as I hear when they are playing, we can pencil a date.
Saw this...thought it was cute! -Kendall
