I definitely would not say I am crafty and my mom will attest. Crafts do not come natural to me, I am not always a perfectionist, I get bored, and I talk to much to get anything done. BUT I refuse to not do crafts. I love doing them. I love when they actually turn out and I love giving gifts I have made to people. It seems so much more personal. In fact, my crafts are kind of like my blog. A little messy and thrown together, but who cares! :)
So, I decided to do a host a little craft get together today. I invited a few women in our ward to make some hair bows. Five women and 3 toddlers and 4 babies later we had survived. I did most of my bows after everyone left lol. I am not sure any one got a lot of crafting done and I should have provided more food (what is a get together with out food), but everyone enjoyed the company.
Here are all the bows I made...
The crafting counter. Thanks to Kim we had a lot of awesome buttons!
Baby Brenden was enjoying the new scenery as he crawled under the table.
Baby Annie was the youngest member of our crafty crew, three and a half weeks! She is so precious and loved the swing as much as my kids do.
Isn't this a great picture of baby Jesse?! haha
Baby Eloise joined the sleeping crew! She is also sporting a bow and headband made by her mom Kim.
Here is the rest of the crew. I didn't get one good picture of the toddlers, but look at those hot mommas!
I seriously wish I was more naturally crafty. What do you wish you were good at?
