This weekend I hosted my first craft night here in my new place of living. We ended up with 5 people and did some freezer paper stenciling (or as I’ve been calling it, FPS. let’s all use it 3 times in a sentence today and make it a thing!) It was the perfect number of ladies and the perfect first craft. Easy enough to do while gabbing and snacking, but not so easy that we were done in 5 minutes.
I’m going to show you a picture, but you have to remember that I’m not one of those crafty bloggers who goes all out in decor and food for these kinds of things. I’m a one trick sewing pony and only a wannabe crafter. (also, we don’t get to choose our furniture or curtains, so please don’t think this decor was my idea!)
And I graciously slaved away to provide these yummy snacks for my guests by stopping at the local bakery and ordering some chips and salsa from the mexican restaurant. The lengths that I go to to entertain will boggle the mind.
Everyone’s FPS turned out great. So great that you’d think I’d have remembered to take a picture. Nope!
But here’s what I made:
Just your standard pink-on-pink unicorn.
The reason I’m showing you so many pictures has nothing to do with my mediocre-at-best FPS and everything to do with the fact that I MADE THIS SHIRT. I know, I know, it’s just a tshirt. But I couldn’t be prouder if it was my 4th child.
And I want to marry my coverstitch machine.
And here’s where I need your advice: What should we do for our next craft night? I’m leaning toward making easter banner/pennant/thingies. So I guess I need to know what we should do 2 craft nights from now. Cuz this is definitely going to be a regular thing. We ladies need more excuses to get together to chat and have a glass of wine but still walk away feeling like we’ve done something productive. Like FPSing. There, I said it 3 times. Your turn.
