Craft Day!


Saturday I had a fun craft day with three lovely ladies . . . my daughter-in-law Shannon, her mom Debbie, and her friend Lori. First we went to a “crafter’s sale” where very friendly people sold their gently used or leftover craft books, supplies, and tools for REALLY REALLY low prices. I came home with a delightful bag of goodies! Then Debbie taught us to make these fun ornaments . . . perfect for decorating packages or hanging on a Christmas tree. Click here for a detailed how-to video and here for a shorter version.Β  As someone who has never scrapbooked before, I had a LOT to learn about terminology and how to use the equipment and tools, so I appreciated my very patient teacher. We all love our finished projects . . . thank you, Debbie! β™₯

  1. Love the ornaments you made!!! I made that ornament last year, such a fun project! My sister made several and put them on her friends Christmas gifts for an added decoration.
    My church has a craft night once a month and we meet at various homes; there is six of us but not all go to my church (we bring our own project to work on). I also attend a craft night at a local library once a month as well (different ladies) and both groups are enjoyable! I am all for craft days and I hope you have many more!

    • I LOVE that you’ve made this, Julie! And I love the idea of a craft night group, too. I’ve been churning the idea of starting one . . . just haven’t come up with the perfect plan yet. Now I’ll know who to consult when I’m ready! πŸ™‚

      • When our church started ours, I was in on it. We found a night that worked for everyone and I think we do it on the fourth Thursday of the month, or is it the third? But I was attending Stampin Up! stamp camps once a month and a few of the ladies liked our idea of a craft night and established one at the local library. It’s a great place to find ideas, get inspired and finish the project you may have been dragging your heels on. The fellowship is always great; I hope you do start one, it will be fun! πŸ™‚

  2. Glad you enjoyed your first taste of scrapbooking! I haven’t attempted making Christmas ornaments, as I am usually too busy making cards around that time, but these are very pretty and I’m sure would look gorgeous on cards, too. πŸ™‚

    • It really was fun to learn a wee bit about something brand new! Choosing the paper and embellishments was a lot like selecting things for sewing projects, which is one of my favorite parts. πŸ™‚ And it was fun to try out all those cool new tools, too! πŸ™‚
