Women of the Well Craft Day

June 22, 2010

This past weekend I had the privilege of doing a step-by-step DIY for the Women of the Well craft/cooking day. 

The girls really loved getting creative with the projects.  Adding tape here and there to create unique designs on the glass.

I even showed the girls some other fun projects you can do with the chalkboard paint.  Here’s how to cover up an ugly lumber yard logo with the paint.  Now you have a repurposed and custom mug to give as a gift for keep for yourself.

It was such a blast — Thanks girls!

Happy Tuesday!

Weekend Recap in Pictures

June 21, 2010

This past weekend was full of so many fun and creative adventures, I didn’t want it to end!

Thursday and Friday, we celebrated Alex’s brother’s birthday.  Thursday night we went to Houston’s.  It is an amazing eatery with American style food.  Amber and I shared a veggie burger and it was the best veggie burger I have ever had in my life.  You must try this restaurant out!

Alex and I got Chris a gift card, but we wanted to make it a little special.  I printed out the template for the bow tie gift boxes from Paper Crave, and put his gift card inside.  It was extremely easy and really fun to make.

Friday night, we went out to Memphis — another great restaurant.  Then we went to see Toy Story 3.  It was fantastic and I loved it!

Saturday morning, I was hating life.  I woke up sooooo early!  But I was like a little jumping bean when I arrived at the flower market.  So many flowers! Creswell, Caitlyn and I went crazy buying tons and tons of flowers.

Then I went straight from the flower market to a craft day with some of the girls from my church.  Tiffany, one of the sweet women I work with, invited me to do a craft for their Women of the Well bible study.  I had done this particular craft back in February for the Virtue blog at Harvest — it should be posted in the next month or so, and Tiffany wanted me to do it again for their girls.

Sunday was Father’s Day — you all knew that though, right?

We went to my Dad’s church, The Well in Oak Valley.  It was a great service and a good time of worship with close family and friends.  We then got to hang out with Alex’s parents for the evening and enjoyed long conversations and good food.

I also enjoyed making cards using some Martha Stewart clip art to make cards for both my dad and Alex’s dad.

So, that was my fun, creative, crafting weekend!  I hope you had just as much fun as I did!

Happy Monday!
