I have a group of friends that I do crafts with. We call our get-togethers Craft Club.
My friend Karen is the mastermind and creative guru for the rest of us girls. (She even has her own craft-room! It’s like a Man Cave only better.) We do what she says and our crafts usually turn out pretty nice. I didn’t think I would like doing crafts and I was skeptical of my creative abilities, but this group of girls makes it fun. We eat. We drink. We laugh. We encourage.
Some of my projects have turned out better than others. Sometimes I am pleasantly surprised in what I’ve created. The Hearts-on-a-Stick craft involved a lot of hand sewing. I found that I really enjoy sewing and have now taken up

I would love to see and hear about any craft projects ---or really any project--- that you’ve had fun with or learned from.
Until next time,
Be Good to Yourself,
