First Annual Christmas Craft Smackdown!Karen2014-06-27T19:16:41+00:00
The holidays are a super busy time for me here at LwTHQ, and sometimes I find myself wishing for just a bit of downtime in between fairs to do some not-for-sale crafting. A quick stroll through the interwebs revealed many awesome and fun Christmas projects, most of which were offered up as free tutorials by benevolent craft masters. I assembled a few of my favorite projects, and held my first ever “crafternoon” here at the studio.
What was planned to be a relaxing afternoon with friends armed with glue and glitter transformed into an awesome 12-hour Mimosa-fueled craft smackdown! One participant said it was better than therapy. I say it is the beginning of a regular occurrence here at the studio. The creativity flowed, the laughs were easy and the finished items were fantastic!
Note: I could not photograph all the finished items, as many of them were gifts. Don’t wanna spoil any surprises!
It’s only the 12th, so plan a crafternoon of your own…you will be so glad you did. If you don’t have time to craft your own gift this year, hit up one of the many craft fairs out there right now and support a local craftsperson while surprising your loved one with a unique, handmade gift. One place to look is this weekend at the Degenerate Craft Fair in Brooklyn. I’ll be there!
