Project Night

So I went over to my Mom's house tonight to have a project night. Everyone brings whatever craft project they are working on and well.. works on it. I have been totally digging these letter blocks so I thought I'd do one for Valentine's Day.

This was my workspace. Not a big surprise if you've ever seen me cook. MESSY. I'm not sure why that is, but I can't not cook or craft without making a huge mess.

This is the E of "Love". Not finished yet. Any ideas?

I spent TWO HOURS trying to get the O to look cute and this is all I came up with. Who knew? I had a total brain fart.

The first letter I worked on. Apparently I only have enough creativity in me to do one letter at a time. Love this one though! Maybe after a few days break I'll get an epiphany and see exactly what I want the rest of the letters to look like. Ha!
Anyway, I had a lot of fun. I'm just barely beginning to be interested in crafting and such so I don't have a lot of experience to draw on. It's nice to do projects with other women to get suggestions and feedbacks. Plus it's just fun to sit and chat about random things. Anyway, great night, great craft, had a blast!

Very cute. You are so crafty, and a woman of all trades. Especially a great cook. I wish I could be like you.

Darling!! They turned out really cute.

I love to craft, too! But I tend to be harder on myself about things that I've made as well! Must be the perefcetionist coming through.

What an awesome idea. I think that the Peterson Sisters down here need to start getting together and doing something similar. Crafts are cool.
