For the past couple of months I have been thinking about starting a craft club of sorts with some of my friends. I love making stuff, and I don't always have someone to give it to; I just want to experiment and make it. I wanted to have a couple of friends over, make a preplanned craft/card that I thought of ahead of time. I've hosted a couple of craft nights, and we've always had fun.
Interestingly enough, a friend texted me a couple of days ago wanting a craft night. So I put in the idea of having doing these every other month. They loved the idea. In exchange (since I won't be charging them), they will cook our meal for that night. So they (who likes cooking more than I do - I suck at being innovative, or tasty, with my cooking) will cook, and then I will plan and demonstrate the craft for the night. Then they'll make it themselves and take it home, happy.
I'm so excited. I gave both girls personalized etched mugs for Christmas last year and they loved them so much I think that will be our first craft. We'll etch stamped images on mugs. I can't wait.
