Craft Night: Let's Get Clippy

I'm not an overly crafty kind of girl, but something about hosting a ladies' craft night sounded fun to me and my favorite gal pals/partners in crime (plus it's #15 on my list).

I'm blaming Pinterest: so much inspiration to be found there and actually following through on a Pinterest-y idea helps justify the amount of daily time I spend searching and pinning.

And apparently my friends were all crafting undernourished. For the first time in my party inviting life I had a 100% YES, I'M COMING! response rate. Who knew these girls were just waiting and hoping to be invited to a gathering where Mod Podge takes center stage??

The craft of the evening was Mod Podging paper onto clipboards (tutorial here) - some girls are planning to use these for organization at home (i.e. a clipboard for each child's school papers) and some are planning to give them as gifts.

So for three hours we ate and plotted and cut and Mod Podged and laughed and crafted...and problem solved a few crafting mishaps.

We might not be Martha Stewarts in the making but we did get out for an evening and forget about the laundry and our needy adorable toddlers and, as an added bonus, we got in touch with our inner craftiness. In a busy, virtual world, there is something to be said for working with your hands and actually physically accomplishing something.

Viola! {A few of our finished products below - mine, T's and KMac's}

Our mantra: Finished is better than perfect.

Until next month!
