I love to sit down and create something with my hands - it's especially fun when it has nothing to do with "work". It's great to gather a group of friends, gab, eat goodies and get crafty!
In relation to this post I did about a "crafting secret", pull creativity and ideas from your pool of friends and family and organize a craft night!
Just pick one project to do, when, where and what is needed for supplies. I charged a small fee and supplied everything for the project. Mainly because I had most of it on hand already. (back to that crafting secret......) I was able to spend an evening with people I enjoyed being around, taught them a fun new skill and everyone went home with hands full of beautiful goodies they had created! I smell a monthly get together coming on....... ;) Maybe one of the other girls will host and teach something fun! (hint, hint.....)
Fabric flowers and rosettes seem to be everywhere and they are being crafted up in all sort of materials in all sort of different ways! Our group hopped on the band wagon and we got crafting!
Remember this photo from last week?
It was a clue about the crafty girls night I was organizing! Refabulous has a great tutorial on how to create the style of flowers I love. And think outside of the box......they aren't just for hair! Clip on your handbag, cardigan, jacket, create a choker, wrist corsage and more! When wearing them in your hair I love the look of clustering them together or wearing a med-large sized one low behind my ear. They are SO fun and great for ages newborn on up! Here are a few I crafted up to help inspire you!
