Lantern Vases - January 5th

It seems like Christmas approaches and life tends to get WAY crazy. With that craziness (and Teresa, CraftyWife #1 moving) our blog has been so neglected!

We planned a craft night making these cute Lantern type Vases for December
and it sneaked up so fast that some of you weren't able to make it.
We will be holding another vase night next week on Thursday, January 5th at 7:00p.

Another fun craft will be posted soon- more info coming!

Last Craft Night....

Okay, it's been WAY too long since this poor blog has been updated.

Here are the 3 pictures we took at our last craft night
(making stocking hangers)....
They turned out so cute and
we hope you all were able to use them for Christmas!

November Craft - "The Stockings Were Hung...."

As young married couples, many of us run into the problem of not having a fireplace/mantle to hang stockings on for Christmas. Instead of just nailing stockings to the wall, we thought it'd be fun to make a wall hanger to put your stockings on. This sign is 19''x10''.

This craft night will be held on Tuesday, November 8th at 7:00pm.

We have a few price options this month based on the number of knobs you want on your sign.
Option 1: sign with 2 knobs will be $10
Option 2: sign with 3 knobs will be $11
Option 3: sign with 4 knobs will be $12
Option 4: sign with 5 knobs will be $13

You have three color options: cranberry red, cream, and hauser green.

This craft night has closed! We'll see all of you who signed up next Tuesday!

If you can't come to the craft night on November 8th but you'd like to make this craft, you can buy a kit for $13. See the form for more information.
Just a quick reminder that your spot will not be held until you have paid-

If you are coming to our October craft night, remember that you can sign up there for this one! If you choose to sign up at the October craft night,
please bring your money with you so we can start getting your supplies.

Thanks everyone!

Googly Eye Frame

When I saw this frame I knew I had to make one!

Check here for the tutorial. I waited too long to find "EEK" letters in stock at Joanns, so I ended up buying a 19 cent wooden bat to put on mine.

What a cute idea!

Button Button!

This little craft only takes about 5 minutes... Turn cute buttons into earrings! A few of our friends have made these, so we gave it a try.

Supplies needed:
2 buttons (Joanns has fun buttons on clearance right now)
earrings (found at craft stores - $2.50 for about 24 pairs)
file (tool or nail)
wire cutters
glue (super glue or hot glue)

The first thing you will need to do is cut the back of the button off so you have a flat surface to glue your earring to. You will then want to file the back (using the file) so it's smooth.

The second/last thing you'll need to do is glue your earring to your button!

Pretty easy right?!

Who We Are & What We Do

We like to craft, but we've found that sometimes it's hard to find time to start AND finish projects. Because of this, we decided to set aside one night where we could start and finish one project and have fun crafting with friends.

Here's how it works:
We'll pick a monthly craft, set a date, get all the supplies for everyone, and do any necessary preparation. The craft will be posted here on the blog with the cost and the information we'll need from you. We'll try to keep all crafts around $10 -

Each craft will have instructions for how to sign up. We will set a date that you will need to sign up AND pay by. Refer to each blog post for instructions.

Each month at our craft night we'll display the following month's craft. Come prepared to sign up and pay for the following month's craft.
