On the last Sunday in January, it was my turn to host Craft Club! For our fourth meeting of the crafty minds, we spent a few hours making collages and nibbling on apps and pizza.
Before Stephanie, Kate, Kim, Lauren and Abby arrived, I set up a table in my living room and covered it with the craft supplies for the day's collaging:
- cutting boards
- x-acto knives
- glue sticks
- rubber cement
Once everyone arrived, I gave the girls a rundown on the techniques that I typically use when making my own collages. Then we all just dug in and began poking through all of our magazines, pulling out pages and figuring out what kind of collage each of us wanted to make.
As usual, it was awesome to see how differently everyone's projects turned out.
Here's Kim's - her collage has some ornate gilded age details to it:

I loved Lauren's woodsy, animal- and nature-inspired collage:

Steph's was filled with just the right amount of crafty angst:

Abby's was pretty and peaceful and seemed to fit her personality perfectly:

Mine was just nowhere near finished by the time my guests left, because I apparently take days longer to make collages than anyone else does! Here's what I was playing around with on my canvas... and hopefully it will be completed someday.
And apparently I didn't get a picture of Kate's because it's nowhere to be found. OOPS! Sorry Kate, I'm sure yours was beautiful.
Of course, Craft Club would be a sad affair if there was no food involved, so for munchies we had:
- vanilla frosted mini-cupcakes
- carrots/cherry tomatoes/hummus
What sorts of crafty projects have you been getting into lately?
