This ain't your momma's craft night...

Craft nights have evolved over the years...
In our grandmother's day, it probably looked like quilting or darning socks.

In our mom's day, it might have included decopauge. Or tole painting.

For us?
Beeswax candle making?
Cake decorating?
Jewellery making?

I was prepared tonight to make cards. Invited some friends to join me, telling them to bring anything they wanted to work on. Something creative.

I set out my work space on the table before everyone arrived, planning my projects for the evening:

I had made these a few years ago, and I wanted to make a few more.
Ones that were less ugly.

And I wanted to do something with the hearts I had cut out in 2012, just before I packed up all my crafting supplies:

And lastly I wanted to use this turquoise paper.
And was hoping that Terry or Maxine would have an idea or two.

But then two friends cancelled.
And the other two showed up with laptops.


THIS is what crafting looks like in 2014:

Notice how fast I cleared away my real craft supplies and transitioned into digital crafting.

So inspiring.
So fun.
So this century.

Three things I'm thankful for:

1. Paper
2. Font talk
3. Online photo book templates

Shalom friends,
