Crafting Goodness

So I got together again with my favorite friends this week for our monthly crafting night, and each of us had brought surprises! I think women enjoy giving each other gifts. I know I do! Look what my bestest friend Deb gave me from Say It With Letters .

It was a plain shape and I altered it. So cute and so girly! I love anything with a scalloped edge! I'm going to hang it in my daughter's room. She also gave me some other shapes seen below. My sister gave me some other fun things to create with! Thank you girls!

Then we all tried our hands at making fairy jars. It was a fun project but harder to complete than all of us thought. We were all so quiet and intent on our work. But I think they turned out cute - don't you? We're going to try again in the future to perfect this craft - we all enjoyed it so much!

Has anyone else created a fairy jar? If so, comment and leave me a link - I'd love to see what you've done!

You "dressed" up the dress from Deb so cute! I love all her items!

All the fariy jars in your photo are so creative! I was in a swap a while back and here's a Flickr link to the one I made:
