Craft Day

 It all started with an idea for a cute invitation.....

I *needed* a day to hang out with girlfriends. To chat, laugh, eat, drink and just have fun! What better excuse to throw a craft day.

What's a craft day without food? The fabulous Jacqui from Baby Boy Bakery sent us some delicious chocolate peanut butter cake pops, I made funfetti dip and sloppy joe sliders (recipe to come) and each of the attendees brought something delicious to share as well!

And food is good, but drinks are better :)  My sangria blanca, mint limeade and raspberry pineapple infused water.


...all served in glittered mason jars.

The crafts!


We did make your own stationery.


Hoop art.

And adorable buntings. (Taught by Heather of Cookie Mondays.)



Not only did we have amazing company, amazing crafts, amazing food and drink, but amazing SWAG!!!

I have some incredibly generous friends who sent goodies for each and every attendee! But they're so amazing, they deserve their own post, don't you think? Be sure to check out the Craft Day Sponsor post, coming SOON to see the fabulous sponsors, what they gave away, and one of you will win it all :)

Craft Day was tons of fun, thanks to the fabulous women who came! (The photo is missing Tegan and Marlee!)


Thank you to the fabulous girls who came, crafted and chatted the day away with me - I can't wait for the next one!

I've only had one craft day (so far) at my house everyone worked on there projects i.e. we had sewing and jewelry making going on. I provided lunch and snacks. after we cleaned up we all went out for dinner. We've been trying to plan another day ever since we all had alot of laughs and got our projects done too!
