A craftin we will go...

It was a chilly day in October. The rain was pouring outside, while the fire crackled inside. Sweet smells came from the kitchen, along with the sounds of chatter and laughter. Four women got to know each other, all the while learning a new crafting skill. We talked about spiritual things, raising children, and how on earth does one cut a straight line?  It was a marvelous day that ended all too quickly!

When I got the email from my friend saying that she needed guinea pigs to do a trial run for a handmade holiday workshop she is working on, I very emphatically said YES!! My Sweet Mother-in-law came over to hang out with the girls for the day to free me up to participate. Don't you just love Grandparents? :-)

We Made these super cute fabric stars. I just love em! You could use Christmas colors and decorate with them for the holidays. You could sandwich them in a super pretty frame. You could hang them from the ceiling in a Princesses bedroom to show her you would give her all the stars if you could ;-). The possibilities are endless!

Thank you so much to my friend for the wonderful day!
You are such a wonderful hostess and friend!!!


  1. Awww!! I can't tell you how glad I am that you came...I had the best time! I hope you've had a great weekend and didn't miss your girls too terribly much. :) Can we get together again soon?!

  2. I did have a really nice weekend...but it was harder than I thought being away from the girls for so long. Yes, I want to get together too! Are you free to come over to my house one day this week?

  3. Yes, that would be great! We (thankfully) have a pretty low-key week...let me know when works for you.
