After giving my friend this wreath for her bridal shower, all of my friends wanted to learn how to make yarn wreaths. So we scheduled a date to come to my house for dinner, wine, and crafting! It was so much fun! We are going to plan to get together the last Friday of every month for a different craft. I love this plan!
The evening started out with a very successful, yet long, trip to Hobby Lobby. I swear, I could spend thousands upon thousands of dollars in that store. I have to go in with a list or at least a rough idea of what I want, or I will spend hours and far too many dollars there.
Upon returning home, we had some tasty BBQ pulled chicken and mashed potatoes that I had made, a glass of sweet red wine ($3.00 from Walmart! I was skeptical, but it was actually really good. We'll see if I get a migraine from it in the morning, I suppose), followed by dessert, which was a glass of Moscato.
Then... let the crafting begin! I set up the card table, some of our kitchen chairs (classy, I know), and got the hot glue gun and Pandora radio going before settling in and showing my friends the ropes.
|Notice the bottle of wine. Every good craft project needs a |
bottle of vino. Yum! (Betsy, on the right, didn't make a
wreath because she had to leave early. She's moving at
7am tomorrow! Next craft night, though!)
|The joys of crafting!|
|Zeke was very enthusiastic about being our quiet observer.|
|Perfect for the fall! All it needs is some ribbon|
to hang it from!
|That would be an empty glass AND bottle.|
|We were serenaded by some live tunes from Hubby|
#2 for a bit... No, I don't have a second hubs. This is
Kraig, the hubby's best buddy, who is also a great
friend of mine.
|I guess that crafting got a bit dull to watch. Or maybe he just wasn't|
in to our girl talk anymore. There's only so much a dog can hear
about True Blood before he has to tune out.
|Abby getting her craft on! Don't you love that|
...and all three wreaths were complete!
|It's a little nautical, I think, but those flowers sure|
|I love Anne's color combination!|
|Three beautiful ladies and three beautiful wreaths!|
I cannot wait for our next craft night: August 26th. We will be making jewelry! We also already have mosaic table tops on the brain for the following month!
