Craft Night: Fabric Flowers
I don't know if you've picked up on a theme here, but craft night with my gals is one of my favorite nights of the week. Last week, my talented friend, Lauren (check her Etsy shop-- gaaaahhh), taught us how to make these beautiful fabric flowers. She's a florist by trade and an everything-else-creative by nature. My new favorite night-time craft is to make these lovely flowers after my kiddos go to bed. You've gotta have the art-release, right?
We had a much smaller crew than normal for our last craft night and it actually ended up being the perfect number. (Which reminds me... I have a "Craft Night Tips" post coming soon! I've learned tons over the last year.) Anyway, Lauren brought some of the wine bottle candle holders she's been making for weddings, and I took a LOT of pictures (Johnny helped, too). When your dining room looks this cozy, how could you not?
It was SUCH a fun night and I'm so thankful for all of these talented ladies I get to call friends. I'm in the process of making a bouquet for my entryway and I can't wait to share it with you all! In the meantime, what kinds of crafts would you like to see here on this old blog? I've been making more creatures (building my stock for a proper update), but what other types of projects are you interested in reading about? I have a whole list and I'm trying to decide what to tackle first! xo.
