I keep thinking about my Spoonful Lab and a huge smile comes across my face. It was so much fun. Yesterday, I showed you the ruffle aprons I made for it. Today, I want to show you the night.
When everyone arrived, they got to get a drink, browse my decor and supplies, and find a seat. They immediately got to mingle, talk and start creating a colorful fabric garland.
It was open and relaxed and I couldn’t have been more pleased. I loved seeing how although I explained some things…everyone took my instruction and put their own twist on it. I am so glad everyone felt the freedom to create what they wanted.
I love seeing the creative process take place, and being apart of it was just icing on the cake. These girls were creative and have skills!
We enjoyed some amazing desserts made by my sweet friend and fellow blogger Libby at Lemon Grass and Green Tea. She really out did herself on the amazing and beautiful treats we got to enjoy!
I shared some of my tips that I use and run through when I paint wood signs. I’ve walked you through a few techniques in different blog posts, but being live I got to babble and go in more depth. It was so fun to explain my creative process without having to worry about how many characters I said it all in. I loved it.
Rust-oleum was so generous to supply the spray paint as the main supply item for our wood signs. The colors are gorgeous, and I loved seeing how almost every color I had was used.
I loved to see the different personalities come out in everyone’s work. We had so much fun!
Don’t feel bad if you missed out on this one. There is another lab coming! I am already dreaming and planning for my next event. On December 5th, I have a lab in Alpharetta, Georgia. Out of The Box Art Studio is generously giving me their place for the night to host this event.
We are going to create a white feather wreath that is perfect for your Christmas decor and can even carry over into the new year for winter. We will also be creating some Christmas ornaments. This will be a great chance to get out with your girl friends and have some fun and laugh, after (I’m sure) a crazy Thanksgiving weekend. Sign ups are now live! Please go here to reserve your spot today!
Also, if you want to get your hands on some of the woods signs I made to explain my painting techniques, they are going up for sale in my shop this week. A lot have already been added.
I will have swag bags again for my attendees at the Handmade Christmas Lab. Here is what was in our last lab’s swag bag:
Everyone’s earrings, magnets, bookmark (that also acted as our name tag), and card were slightly different. I think they were a hit. I am already planning the next bag of goodies. If you would like to get your hands on the swag items above, please leave me a comment below. I will randomly select a winner this weekend. I would also LOVE if you share my graphic for my Handmade Christmas party around.
Thank you so much for all your support!
