December Crafternoon



This month’s Crafternoon was on a Friday evening, because let’s face it December is one busy month, and this was the only practical day for me to squeeze one in. The bad side about it being in the evening was there is just no way for me to get any decent photos. Most of what I took came out blurry or too dark to use. Our craft was making Putz style houses, and I wish I got a photo of all the houses together they were so cute. I’ll get some photos of my houses and last month’s craft soon as I realized I never posted a photo of that either!
The little snowman favors you see above were a thrift find and I filled the little cups with wrapped candy so everyone could take their own little snowman home.
We did a secret Santa swap instead of the white elephant gift, and had a Christmas cookie swap.
I’ll leave you with a photo of the dark side of crafternoon, or as I like to refer to it– the craftermath!! This is the worst part of an evening based crafternoon because it some times ends up running really late into the night (1:30am for this one) and there is no one who wants to clean at that time of night, its just off to bed at that point. Luckily Katie was spending the night and Thomas is always a great helper too and we got it cleaned up the next morning instead. Paper crafts can be messy stuff!
Just a head’s up for anyone who wanted to buy any of my items from Society6, they have a couple of promos for Christmas, this link give you free shipping and $5 off products (through dec 8th at midnight) but then they are also offering a special where each day they feature a new product deal up for grabs from midnight to midnight. Sunday’s is $6 off all tote bags! So if you were waiting to buy something special this week will be a great time!

    This looks like so much fun! I love that name, “Putz”. And cleaning up after stuff is my crutch. I always hate that, but I like things clean.

    I got my love birds print that I’ve had my eye on for awhile. So excited to get it. I already know exactly where I’m putting it. Thank you

    Melanie, usually I kind of look forward to the clean up-to get everything back in place…but this one I had been busy all day from making soup and cookies for the party-to running out for last minute supplies, that by the time 1:30am rolled in I just had to go to bed haha

    Susan, aw im glad it looks like fun to you! You should try to start one…even if it starts real small with one or two people!

    Dawn,
    its a real good time for sure! We get quite inappropriate and silly when we are all together :)

  9. Susan says:

    I have thought about trying to get one going, Heidi, but I think my friends would need a lot of convincing as none of them are very crafty.

  10. Heidi Kenney says:

    Susan, a lot of my friends wouldn’t say they were crafty either, but everyone always seems to have a good time. A few people were definitely skeptical at first though
