A Crafty Weekend

Have you ever invited 25 of your favorite crafty friends to your house for a weekend of crafting? Sounds pretty crazy, but boy, was it ever fun!!!

We started the weekend with some card make and takes, then moved quickly to making a tri-shutter album and conducting a Copic marker technique class...of course, there was plenty of food and drink the whole weekend. A fettucine alfredo dinner was provided by our wonderful husbands! They are such great sports.

After dinner we visited, worked on our own projects and worked with the cutting on the Cricut. Most of us have Cricuts, but it was fun to learn new ways to use this very powerful tool. We were enjoying ourselves so much, we did not realize it was getting late until 1:00am!

We began Sunday morning with breakfast on the patio on a beautiful Texas morning. Everyone worked on their own projects until the afternoon when we started our group projects with a Stampin' Up card make and take.

We finished the day with colored pencil/Gamsol coloring and Distress Ink and water coloring technique classes.

Now, on to storing all the crafting supplies...more to come from the weekend, we have pictures...lots of them...thanks to my wonderful hubby!

For all you participants, I'll post the link to the web album when I have the photos uploaded.

Happy Crafting!
