In 2016, I put together a ladies craft night with coloring books.  It was FUUUUUN and I was hooked on the magic we made.

I’m hoping that 2017 brings more and more ladies craft nights!

How do you plan a get-together??? You start with a TO DO LIST:

Here’s the table!

I kept it pretty simple. Just the right amount of feminine touches for my taste!

I wanted to show the ladies how I melt crayons on a hot tray and I pulled out my typewriter so we could type on cards and make poems.

    That’s amazing! We should all have a girls craft night every now and then!
    The table setting looked amazing and the food too:)

  • Jane M

    OH HOW I WISH I LIVED NEARBY AS THIS KIND OF EVENING IS SO UP MY ALLY! So you know what? I am going to try hosting a party right here in my home for my friends. We sadly lost a great great friend last week (gone too soon) and this art night might be a great way to start the healing. I’m going to pose this to a friend. Thanks for the inspiration!

  • Rachel

    Oh man this looks like so much fun! I need to make more time for fun nights like this in 2017! Crafting is such a great stress reliever. Thanks for the inspiration :)

  • Elizabeth

    I love your table! Where is it from? We need a new and bigger table in our dining room.

    • Tracy

      we got it on clearance at restoration hardware! You gotta stalk their sales. Sometimes they’re amazing.

  • cindy

    this is so great! your pictures are amazing and so are your crafts- what fun!

  • Vanessa

    I’m totally inspired! Now, if I could just get you and Courtney up here for the fun!

  • Amy

    Your photography is beautiful–I love the lighting in these photos. You never cease to amaze me with your creativity and how it extends to all aspects of your life. You truly enrich my life with inspiration. I love how your menu is special and thematic yet totally approachable. If only we had Trader Joe’s in Canada!

  • Mary

    is it just me? i feel nauseated lately looking at food & lifestyle blogs. part of me appreciates that most don’t acknowledge current events, as it maintains that blissful feeling of calm when you see a happy place where everything is beautiful. however as the ugliness of the trump administration seeps further into our everyday lives it all seems so silly, a distraction from what our focus should be on, as the country is being restructured every day. sorry for venting here. i love this blog and appreciate the way you fill your life with art.

  • Amanda

    This is such a great idea!

  • Lori

    I wish my friends that live nearby were crafty because this looks so fun! Your table set-up is beautiful!

  • Lucie

    So much inspiration in one post! Love all of it but what especially caught my attention are the beautiful creative floral arrangements,,, that succulent!

  • Alexis

    I love this! Do you have instructions for the melting crayon activity?
