craft night

Last night I had some of my favorite girls over for a much needed craft night. With everyone’s crazy work, school and surf (I’m looking at you, Auntie!) schedules it gets kind of tricky to find a night that works for everyone. And as an extra bonus, my mom is in town visiting so she was able to join in the fun too!

We were all pretty flexible on the craft choice so my mom and I headed to our local Ben Franklin to get inspired.

I don’t know if it is the same for you, but I have imagination overload every time I step foot into a craft store. I had a few different projects in mind for our craft night and was wondering how I was ever going to choose, but once we saw these wooden owls we knew that we had to get them!

Back at the house we set up the supply station. We provided everyone with a wooden owl, their choice of scrapbook paper, some paintbrushes, and eye supplies (bottle caps and little googly eyes)

Everyone came over and was excited to get started on their owls. But first, we had an important matter to take care of…eating!

A gathering in my family is not a proper gathering unless their is delicious food involved. For craft night, my mom and I put together two pastie pies. (pronounced “pass-tea”) You can read more about pasties by clicking that link but for the sake of this post, all you need to know is that they are delicious and a family favorite.

Once both pasty pies were devoured and brownie sundaes were had by all, we were ready to start crafting.

It was so neat to see how everyone’s owls turned out. I know some pretty creative ladies. Here are our finished products:

Pretty cute huh? What would you use your owl for?
