Craft Club (Friends plus Food plus Crafts = a great time!)

I recently had a friend invite me to join a "Craft Club". Basically, there are four of us - we rotate each month hosting everyone at our respective houses. The hostess makes dinner for everyone (wine included - sure makes the crafts more interesting! Not to mention the conversation.) The hostess also plans a craft for the rest of the group.

Each of us has different skills to bring - Anna is the cake decorator, Susan is the scrap booker, I am the seamstress, and Shannon - well, she makes a mean Manocotti!

Shannon hosted the first of our get togethers and she did a great job. Here are some pictures of what we all made.

She noticed bottles similar to this at a gift shop selling for $28. Well, us crafty girls aren't going to pay that when we can just make them ourselves! She went to Wal*Mart and purchased the bottles for around $2. Bought a tube of E600 glue for around $2. Then drove to a little gem of a place here in Texas - Sam Moon - if you've never been before - I warn you - its not for the faint of heart. It's a huge store filled with tons of cheap jewelry, hand bags, scarves, etc, etc. Do not take your children if you can swing it. In fact, I believe that on Saturdays strollers aren't allowed. It's in Dallas if you're ever that way. Big tourist stop for the female gender (you see lots of men standing around outside) - lots of shopping fun - you just have to know what you're getting yourself into!

Anyway - Shannon found the pendants at Sam Moon for around $6. We just glued those babies onto our bottles, and voila! Beautiful accessories for the bathroom, kitchen, etc. Don't you love them??!

Thanks girls - I'm looking forward to more "Craft Club" evenings!

By the way, in case anyone is intersted. My boy just learned to take his diaper off. He's currently running around the house naked as a jay bird!
