Last night, a group of my friends got together for a ladies’ craft night. A few months ago we met at my house to attempt cross stitching (see our attempts here) and have been trying to get together again ever since. Through our discussions, we decided that we should rotate houses, so no one person is always burdened with playing hostess. The general idea is that whoever is hosting decides on the craft project for the evening and is responsible for buying all the supplies needed–allowing everyone else to simply show up armed with snacks, wine or beer and enough money to cover their portion of the supplies.
This month, Shannon Ander (who was featured in “Closet Case” here) played hostess. The craft of the night? Freezer paper stenciled tote bags. The cost to each crafter was a mere $10 and we all walked away with awesome new tote bags…made by us! I’m not going to provide you guys with a tutorial, but after a quick Internet search I found that one of my favorite blogs, How About Orange, offered up one here. At any rate, here are some pictures from our craft night–sorry, some are a tad on the blurry side.
