May’s Craft Night!

8 Jul

“Old wine and friends improve with age.”

This month, us gals got together to design special wine glasses for our wine! Yesenia had a fabulous set up, with ideas for some of us who are a little less creative. It’s always a great evening when the Craftinista’s get together! Thank you Yesenia!!

April!

8 Jul

April was another great craft night! Rebecca C., hosted at Kara’s apartment. We were able to be very creative and get a bit messy with Modge Podge, one of our groups favorite mediums! We made Modge Podged frames. Each lady let their personality shine through on this one! Thank you Rebecca for a fantastic craft night!

Magical March!

8 Jul

March was hosted by the lovely Monica! We made gorgeous green shamrock brooches. Mo, is always festive, and even had “Green Margarita’s” to get us in the spirit for St. Patty’s Day!

All you need to make this amazing craft is wooden hearts, green paint, green GLITTER, pipe cleaner, and a GLUE GUN!

Look at how amazing they turned out!

Thanks Mo for hosting!

(Special Thanks to Mrs. Holtkamp/Will’s mama for some of the supplies!)

Snazzy Semptember

10 Jun

September was hosted by Rebecca C. She is an amazing crafter and has a love for jewelry making. She decided to teach us how to make a simple drop earring. Unfortunately for most of we couldn’t hang with her fantastic skills. But we still managed to finish one earring each! I still believe we all deserve a fist pump. Thank you Rebecca for teaching us something new!

Pictures to come soon.

Another sewing adventure!

10 Jun

January was hosted by the lovely Olivia! This month brought the sewing machine back. We made lovely vintage tote bags.

Good thing we had Jess and Rebecca O to help us thread these crazy things or we would be out of luck!

Thank you O for a great night!

February Surprise!

10 Jun

For February the Craftinista’s had a super top secret surprise in mind. Our dear friend Monica decided she couldn’t wait until November to be married to the love of her life, so they were having an impromptu small wedding ceremony. The craftinista’s wanted to celebrate one of her last nights as a single lady with a surprise dinner at Niko Niko’s. (yumm-OO). Despite an ice storm we managed to get the bride to be there. We had a lovely evening, making Mustache Valentine’s cards and playing with Mustache Tattoos. We did get some uncomfortable stares from others who were trying to eat. Nevertheless we had a great evening!

Holiday Aprons

9 Jun

Decembers craft night was extra special. Not only did Raquel host a fantastic party (with some AMAZING chicken salad, I might add), we made ROCK STAR HOLIDAY APRONS! Our blood, sweat and tears went into this craft. The sewing machines were against us, that night, I am convinced! But we totally rocked our craft! Also, we had our first holiday cookie exchange which was a yummy yummy success! Thank you Martha Stewart for the inspiration.
