Craft Day Stuff

There's something about girl time that rejuvinates the soul. It feels so great to send the boys off for "man time" and spend the day in your pajamas with the girls you love; laughing, talking, eating, crafting. It's blissful.

That's what we did last weekend. We sent the boys to Salt Lake to watch a Jazz game and the girls gathered at my moms house for Craft Day. We started sanding wood at 10 am that morning and didn't finish our crafts until after 10 at night. I haven't had that much fun in a long time. Each of the girls game up with a craft to do and then we got all the supplies for "our" craft. We made scrapbooked wood blocks, aprons, mail pails, coasters, princess cutouts and boxes, The kitchen was a mess. But it was totally worth it.
I haven't had that much fun or laughed that hard in the longest time. Sometimes you just need to kick back with your girls.

I love crafts! I miss the Enrichments where we used to make stuff. I'm not motivated enough to do it on my own. But I love doing them with others.

So how did it go with the fam...?
