Ladies Craft Night : Coloring Book Edition

Ever wanted to host your own Ladies Craft Night? Tracy from Shutterbean shows you how she put together a coloring book party!

There was a 3-year period in my late 20s when my friends and I would have weekly Ladies Craft Night that coincided with the TV show, Project Runway. Oh, and I think we watched the first three seasons of Glee together too. Our Ladies Craft Nights involved dinner, cocktails, ladies chats, and some sort of paper craft. Us introverts were so talked out by the end of the night that it took us the rest of the week to regain our strength for next week’s craft night. It was awesome and it truly filled my heart to be around like-minded women. I feel fortunate that the three of us were dedicated to keep that routine going.

My Everyday Life : Week 30 on Shutterbean.com

What I loved about these craft nights was that everyone shows up with something to offer.  If it’s not a technique, it’s a good story, it’s a hug when you need one, it’s the support of people who are on your same wave length. It’s those moments of vulnerability when you’re laughing so hard and you’re not sure your bladder can handle it. Maybe you had a little whiskey? Maybe you’re just living? Maybe you just feel better when you’re coloring a drawing while talking.

My Everyday Life - Week 33 on Shutterbean.com

In the back of my brain I’ve been daydreaming about hosting creative workshops in the Bay Area (and maybe BEYOND!). I want it to be similar to the ladies craft nights I used to have with my lady friends. Food + crafts + drinks. There’s a lot to work out, and I’m not sure how many people I would want to come for a workshop (ahem, introvert who prefers intimate gatherings). But there’s no way to figure out all of those things unless I actually do it.

Last week, I hosted a Ladies Craft Night at my friend’s shop Neve + Hawk in San Anselmo. It was 4 hour chunk of time with creative ladies and I think it went pretty well!

Let me show you what was involved:

Egg-In-A-Nest Pesto Pizza

My friend Katie’s new cookbook Rise & Shine: Better Breakfasts for Busy Mornings comes out tomorrow an it’s just what you need if you want to shake up your breakfast game. I am need of it, are you??! I’ve been on a toast with butter kick for the past 4 months and I need to legit quit it. It’s not the kind of breakfast that keeps me full. As a result, I get hungry before lunch and find myself eating too much to compensate. Time to change that with a filling breakfast.

In the book there are LOADS of healthy breakfast recipes and this one immediate stood out because I love arugula AND egg on pizza.

Try this Egg-In-A-Hole Pesto Pizza made with pita bread for a healthy breakfast. Recipe on Shutterbean.com!

For this Egg-In-A-Hole Pesto Pizza, a pita is spread with fresh pesto. Cheese sprinkled on top of that. A nest is created with arugula. An egg is dropped into that nest and it all goes into the oven for some browning and crisping action. It’s blasphemous how easy it is. Breakfast game = stronger than ever. You just leveled up!
