Now that the whole DT has posted their Holiday Projects, it's my turn. My post is going to be a little different with the Hambly projects at the end. Last week i invited a bunch of friends over last minute for dinner & crafts. I wasn't really sure how it was all going to come together in less than a week, but i have some special people who helped a lot (Thanks Meg, Cass & Zach).
I melted mints in the oven at 250 degrees to make peppermint brownies.
I also made this croquembouche for the first time at Thanksgiving, it was such a hit i made it again, and also included eclairs, for the chocolate lovers.
After dinner we took everything off the table and it became the craft table! (yes this is the same table pictured above)
It was so much fun. I bought 8" x 10" blank canvas and DIY wood bangles for everyone. Then i grabbed a bunch of Hambly rub-ons (i always have a tons of open packs at the studio) some ranger dabbers & claudine hellmuth studio acrylic paints. It was fun to see what everyone came up with! Love what my friend Cara did with her canvas, she did a cute painting and added some rub-ons for the border and a few other places. (it's still in progress here)
The bracelets were also fun. We painted them using Claudine's Studio inks, they dry fast and are perfect for the rub-ons to adhere to. I (of course) played with the doilies rub-ons.
Jenn layered the rub-ons on hers. ( i think this was her first time using rub-ons.....)
Here's Jenn modeling the bracelets we made. (she also wore the black one to her show on sunday, must be a good craft project if you were it on stage when singing!) We are hoping to start craft night once a month in 2010.
I hope it works out!
