Hey, friends! Remember last month when I shared with you about the first ever meeting of my real-life "Crafty Ladies" group and the fun decorative wooden blocks we made? Well, we recently got together again to have some more girl-time and craft therapy. This time, more ladies were able to join us for our spring projects.
We had two projects, decorated flowerpots and decorated wooden eggs. Everyone had the same stash of supplies to use: fabric, paint, Mod Podge, ribbon, jute, stamps and Staz-On ink. Once again, I was just amazed by how differently each person's projects turned out even though we all had the same choices of materials. Take a look at some of the finished products:
My friend "Short Jess" decided to cut a butterfly out of a piece of fabric in my stash and Mod Podge it on top of a coordinating fabric. Then, she added ribbon and left the very top natural.
My friend Kelly painted her pot and added "Live Simply, Live Hopeful" around the rim with alphabet stamps. She decided to use her eggs as plant markers when she and her hubby plant vegetables and herbs this year.
Another butterfly lover, my friend Sarah, used fabric on her flowerpot and painted her eggs in various spring colors.
My mom, Sherl, covered her pot in turquoise polka dot fabric and a contrasting bow. She decorated her eggs with spring-y ribbon and small flowers.
My girl Erin, who I'm sure you remember from the Christmas Handprint Plaque and various other crafty adventures, made this fun flowerpot covered in turquoise fabric and eggs stamped with special words.
I am loving the pink eggs made by my friend Tall Jess...she trimmed scrapbook paper with pinking shears, wrapped it around the painted eggs, and finished it off with some twine. She also used fun green fabric on her flowerpot and a wired twine accent.
I'm crazy about the eggs my friend Jenni made: "He is...Risen, Lord, Friend, Savior." Love it! Her pot turned out gorgeous too, covered in fabric and finished off with a ribbon accent.
And me? Well, I stamped some words on the eggs, then used my Martha Stewart dauber to add colored polka dots. I like the way they look arranged in this basket I found.
And my pot? Well...it speaks for itself, doesn't it? Who saw that one coming?
What do you think?! Do I have an amazingly talented and creative group of friends or what? I just love these girls and I love having a time set aside each month for getting together to make fun things! Which projects are your favorites?
