Sept family craft night

lynnencfanSeptember 21, 2011

Well after a summers absence our family has started up our family craft night. Saturday night we did mosaic flower pots. I plan to use mine in a fall vignette because of the copper in it. This was our smallest group - we usually have 6 or 7 and it is mass chaos but fun :) .....

Those are really pretty...I like how you all came up with different
ideas to decorate them...each unique.
I also like how you each painted the rims with a different finish.
I'd love to see them when they're all done and 'in action'!
I remember last year you posted your Family Craft night.
I was actually green with envy and thought how wonderful that a family enjoys
getting together to do that. It was so nice to see.

I also remember last year when you shared your family with us, and like Jane I was a lovely shade of green. Its so wonderful to see a family having special fun times like that.

Janey needs to get the bus and we could all join you next time. Tho you might have to find a craft doing something with dishes for our many Dishnuts here. LOL.

hugs, Karen

I do feel truly blessed to finally have all my family so close by - it has been a dream forever. Not to sound too religious here but I firmly believe that God had his hand in all this. I was so pleased that our mother got to witness us all moved here before she passed away :)

Our next project is going to be either mercury glass or the glitter pumpkins - we are doing some online research for best methods and something that can be done in one evening .....

Lynn..I was reading where you're looking to do a Mercury
Glass project - Quick! Last year I was researhing how to do that, and came across a great YouTube 'how to' that seemed real quick and easy. I bookmarked it and I'm posting it here for you..it might be helpful.
There are also a few others on the right that you might want to check out.
