Sometimes all you need is a craft day with some lady friends to get your creative juices flowing. Yesterday I spent the day at my friend Diane’s house. We now kindly refer to her as DIY-ane because her and her husband are always coming up with super creative and fun projects.
She had a couple of her neighbors over (yes, she built a house and ended up in a fantastic neighborhood with other young, hip, and creative women) and a few of her other friends were invited as well, including ME! We spent the morning beating and staining wood, which turned out to be a great stress reliever, and painting some unique frames.
While everything dried we made a trip to the holy land of DIY, Hobby Lobby! I had never been before and it was quite overwhelming at first, especially as we attempted to navigate the aisles with seven curious ladies. Our task was to find all the items needed to finish our projects for the day. My personal task was also to walk out of there alive and without spending a fortune. I think we were there for about an hour and a half and all left smiling!
After our return to Diane’s we enjoyed pizza, bloody marys and mimosas while we completed our projects. I think overall everyone was super impressed with how theirs turned out.
My 30 Before 30 list includes one craft a month (#11) so I definitely nailed March, and since I think I missed February I will count this for that too. 🙂
If you have any super fun crafting ideas please share! I am definitely in the mood to do more especially as the weather gets nicer. I look forward to DIY-ane hosting another crafting day as well since she is such a good teacher and obviously inspires us all to be creative DIYers.
