VIP Crafters


So, every couple of months or so, my Mom hosts a Craft Day.
It's kind of like getting on the "list" to a VIP, Hollywood party if you get to go.
Seriously, there are women knocking each other down and crawling over each other to get invited.

Also, we don't make cheesey crafts that you buy at some booth at the mall.
We make classy stuff, that you personalize to your tastes and colors in your home.

This craft day was building a plaque, based off of my infamous, "No Whining" sign.

I chose to do "Happy Wife~Happy Life".  Of which, I will proudly
display somewhere in my house, so that Brandon has a CONSTANT
reminder of how to make his life easier!

Mmmm hmmm...I make it real easy for a guy, don't I?

Here are some pics of women working hard, making
a little beauty for their homes and results of their work....

Yeah, it's great.
We always start with fruit, scones, and coffee.

Then we get to work, slamming Diet Coke, if necessary.

There is tons of "girl talk" and screaming and laughing.

We break for lunch where everyone brings one of their best recipes.

Lastly, we put on the finishing touches and call it a day!

Craft Day...

Ha ha ha, at first I totally thought that sign read "Shabby Wife, Shabby Life"! That could be a pretty accurate sign too :) Especially after having 3 kids and trying to squeeze in a shower everyday!
