I hope you all had an amazing, food & family filled Thanksgiving! I sure did – and to help ring in the holidays, the hubby and I had a Christmas decorating marathon on Thanksgiving night (all while watching a Muppet Christmas Carol – my favorite holiday movie 🙂
On Saturday, I hosted a little holiday crafting party for some of my girlfriends. I called it a Christmas “Crafternoon”, and had a blast planning and prepping the projects, food and drink for our festive gathering.
I started decorating really early this year – a week and a half before Thanksgiving – in order to have the house ready for the party. I’ll be back later this week with a little house tour of this year’s decorations! In the meantime, here are some pics from the crafting party.
We made mason jar snow globes, mini boxwood wreaths, scalloped felt & burlap trees, and burlap ornaments. I crammed a lot of crafting into one afternoon!
It was so much fun to see everyone get their creative juices flowing, and put their own twists on each project. I think we all inspired each other!
How awesome is this rustic mini boxwood wreath made by my girl Molly?
And here is my beautiful friend Tiffany modeling her pretty wreath adorned with a bow!
One of my favorite things about blogging is sharing with, connecting to & learning from all of you readers, bloggers & friends in the blogosphere. It sure would have been nice to invite ALL of you over to my place to eat yummy snacks, sip delicious hot spiced rum cider, and craft the day away. But, since my apartment barely held 8 of us yesterday, that would likely have been disastrous!
STILL, to spread the crafty love & express my gratitude to all of you lovely readers out there, I want to give away a crafting kit full of all the supplies you need to make the projects you see here today!
One lucky winner will receive a fun-filled box packed with the materials needed to make:
2 mini boxwood wreaths
1 Mason Jar Snow Globe
2 Scalloped Felt Trees
4 Burlap Ornaments
In addition to the supplies, I will include instructions for each project (plus you’ll be able to check back here for posts on each one that I will put up in the next couple of weeks).
Then you can use your homemade goodies to decorate your house, gift to friends and family, or make with a friend!
The giveaway closes December 8th at 11:59pm. Just follow the link below for easy entry.
