This is just a small sampling of the cookies she had ready.
Here we are in the process
The beautiful results. It is amazingly easy to do. Vicki has all the instructions, so you can just pop over to her blog here and find out the details. None of these are my cookies. There the other ladies in the group, mine turned out pretty but these were definately the knockouts. I will definately start making these for holidays now.
Another thing I love about having a craft group is that we are all good in very different areas.
Vicki is the baker/cook
Chantal is the seamstress, quilter, handicraft woman. She has a beautiful blog with her quilts and tutorials here.
Pilar is more like me, a jill of all trades, but expert at none. Although I have to say she is quite good at jewelry making. That will be next month. She does not have a blog but we are working on her.
Debi is adopting internationally and has a blog concerning that rollercoaster and she also makes and sells adoption jewelry in her etsy shop.
Jane is an awesome, incredible muralist and faux painter, but she is also one of those gals that can do ANYTHING! She really impresses me with ther "I can do it attitude".
Craft group usually lasts around 2 to 2 1/2 hrs. But this week we all got to know each other a bit better and felt more comfortable and we were there for 4 hrs, most of it chatting. I soooooo love all my crafty girls. Thanks for coming and sharing your skills and lives with me each month.
One more point I would like to make. This is something that I have wanted to do for quite awhile, but was hesitant to ask anyone, you know what every single lady was thrilled that I thought of her. I think lots of people would love to do this, but don't feel comfortable starting it. We also have someone starting in the summer without craft skills, but she just wants to hang out. Not everyone comes every month, I purposely asked more people then I thought would be the perfect amount so that people could come and go as they needed to . I love it, I hope this encourages you to start one if you have been thinking about it.
