Today, I got to do this cool thing! Nest Crafty, hosted by the awesome Amanda of My Little Dears and Jessica. We got to make crafts! Now, I never do this kind of stuff. Let's just say the greeting card biz has basically overrun my desire to make anything else. But this was a great excuse to hang out with a bunch of super cool gals and learn how to make some cool crafties.
These were all pretty simple crafts, but all set up having everything you need right at your fingertips - and things I'd never, ever do at home.
Check out my creations... some are better than others. Hey, I'm a greeting card aficionado, I do not wear many other hats...
|Upon arrival, our nametags, made from a metal can lid! Genius.|
|A sweet transistor radio fabric mousepad (thanks Ashley for the super fabric.)|
|Hoop art! I've never messed with these before so this was super fun. Hot glue gun burns, but worth it in the end.|
|Turns out, I remember how to sew! No, I didn't make the gray pillow. I made the very simple peach pillow.|
|with a super cool back.|
|Terrariums! Oh, how nice to leave somewhere carrying a pretty plant with you.|
|Yeah, I could not do these. My buddy Laura had to do it for me. New respect for people who stamp metal...|
|Decorate-a-jar! This was fun, and I love things to put stuff in.|
Overall a super day, I'm so glad I have all these unique things around my apartment now. I feel like I accomplished a ton of stuff in a 4 hour time frame too! A special thanks to the fine ladies who put this on - I'm so glad I signed up!
Have a great weekend,
