Craft Class Week 1….

As promised....here is a photo of our first weeks craft project.
This was a LOT of fun. We used different sized drill bits to drill designs into our pumpkins.

I think this was the most popular design.

  I loved this design....a pumpkin vase. My apologies for the lack of lighting. You can click on any one of these photos to enlarge them.

I have to admit. It's been a very long time since I have carved a pumpkin, but this is a great and easy way to do it. 
I just put a small string of lights inside, so it can be plugged in vs. having to light an actual candle. That always scares me if you are keeping your pumpkin in your house. 

I wish I had pictures of all the ladies carving/drilling their pumpkins, but I forgot my camera. (frown)

I know I've posted out of order, but I should be all set after this.
Next up....week 3!

Craft Class Week 2….

 First of all, let me just say that I cannot believe I have let almost the entire month of October go by without a post! I am so sorry about that!!

Now that fall is here, that means it's time for my fall craft classes.

In case you haven't noticed, I am starting with week 2. I still need to get pictures of our first week's project, so once I do I will be posting that one straight away.

Okay, so this project was totally designed out of the fact that I really needed something to hold up my cookbooks while following recipes. I was always propping them up on something, only to have them sag down...wash, rinse, repeat!

This is what I came up with... 




It's also great for displaying your favorite cookbook from season to season.

 I also found some other uses for it! (wink)

Oh, and for all you techy's out there...it makes a great stand for your Ipad or Kindle, too!

Just look at these ladies...so hard at work.

It was a great night, and I think they were pretty happy with what they made.
 
Great job ladies!
