December Craft Night

We sure had fun at the last Craft Night of 2009/Christmas Party! We started the night out with a pot luck dinner, then on to the make 'n takes. The store also remained open for participants to shop if they wanted to take advantage of Craft Night specials.

Look what Gail made! She told us that she spent more time on the gingerbread men than on her card for the card drawing. We could all tell how hard she worked- aren't they cute?

I did the Christmas tree pie box make 'n take, but featured another take on the pie box by making it into Santa! Participants filled their trees with candy canes and used chocolates for the stump. Who knew that die was so versatile?

Here's Gwen and I with the make 'n takes.

The other make 'n takes were done by Tracy. She actually offered 2 projects! The one on the left is a gift card holder made from the new Sizzix die. The project on the right is a Christmas tag. I didn't have enough time to write in the "To and From", so my project is incomplete!

Here's Michele and Gail with Tracy doing the make 'n takes.

Here's Debi, Michele, and Margaret just hanging out.

And Donna and Michele S. having fun!

At the end of the night Michele did a drawing and gave away a Christmas goodie bag which Gwen won (sorry, no photo). Congratulations Gwen! Now you can't say you don't win anything!

We also had a Card Drawing, where anyone who wanted to, could participate by bringing in a handmade card. The cards were numbered and we all picked a number to see who got to take home which card. It was so nice to leave with a new card and a new idea!

Overall, Craft Night was a time for all of us to have fun, do a little crafting, and socialize with one another. Thank you to all who attended! Please check the blog for more info on our Januaray Craft Night, which is scheduled for January 15th (note that we had to move the date due to store closure at the beginning of January).
