Craft Day Loveliness

I love a good craft day. And my absolute favorite is getting to sit around and craft with some of the best ladies.  We try to get together for a craft day every few months or so.  We all bring a different craft and sit and drink wine, eat food, and work on our projects.  It’s like the old fashioned quilting circle, but with 4 different projects happening at once.

I love that these days become a chance to try something new.  I am a crocheter, it’s my go to craft.  But last weekend, I opted to try my hand at modpodge-ing some Altoid cases to turn them into business card holders.  Turns out, I love modpodge!

Wow September is going fast! And I’m somehow managing to keep up with it all and my goals of finishing some of these blankets!

Last weekend, it was my birthday, and Husband and I did an electric run with some friend.Here’s a picture of us playing with the glowsticks, post run:

And here’s us running through the black light tunnel:image (1)

See how much fun we are having? The run really was great, and it was an awesome way to start off the new year for me.  This might  become a new thing for me!

Aside from that, I have been kicking but at the Blanket Challenge! I pulled out some of the old ones and got to work remembering what on earth I was doing in them, and I am so close to finishing the one for my friend.  I really think if I hunker down, I could finish it this weekend.
