A lovely winter afternoon was spent crafting with a few dear friends. Every possible craft supply that may give inspiration to the heart and hand was carefully set around the creative space.
While making things, yummy treats sweet and savory along with Esprit de Noël tea and homemade hot chocolate with whip cream and teeny tiny chocolate chips sprinkled on top for the children were sipped and nibbled on while cutting, gluing and conversing.
Using these wooden spools was at the top of the list!
Before everyone arrived, I had a quiet moment to entertain my craving to craft. A few natural items created this pleasing piece.
During the following hours some glitter was accidentally added to the tree and gave it that bit of sparkle it needed! Thank you dear friend!
A hand felted fluffy bird was the beginning of this colorful place marker.
The first of the wooden spool place markers! The natural grooves in the wood sparked the stripes.
Now for some pink!
Yay! The birch bark paper straws found a home in this piece along with the bell, inspired by one of our dear friend's creations!
Searching through the whole collection of beloved deer, this one was the perfect size.
Our dear friend brought a gift of beautifully homemade wrapped twig ornaments... which inspired wrapping Lake Superior driftwood!
Gold, hearts and some natural items were gathered and put together in an ornament.
Using the same idea, my daughter added shimmery color to the letters and glitter! Love it!
A couple more of her design!
