Pinterest Night 2

During our Pinterest Party we had fun making a couple of crafts. When ladies arrived they put together a Mason Jar tumbler.
We added chalkboard Con-tact paper to the lids and pretty paper straws.

At the end of the evening we made clothes pin magnets decorated with Washi Tape.

I mentioned in yesterday's post that I had quotes all around the's a sample of what makes me laugh and think...

During the evening, a friend shared about comparing ourselves with each other and how we're all gifted differently...and that is OKAY. Be grateful for who God made you to be.

Pinterest Night

Enjoyed an evening of fellowship, food and crafting with the ladies at church. We tried to set the evening up so that those who are Pinterest fanatics and those who have a life outside of Pinterest could both enjoy the evening. We had a potluck where we encouraged bringing a recipe that was pinned, found on the internet or even just a recipe clipped from a magazine. We also had a show and tell and made a couple of crafts.

I decorated the tables with Mason Jar projects from Pinterest and quotes I've enjoyed. All the projects are pinned on my Pinterest Party Board.

I had a table with jars for candles...

These pretty vintage jars and coffee filter flowers decorated another table.

A collection of jars containing gifts on another...

Christmas ideas on another...

And finally a table devoted to utilitarian ideas...

Tomorrow I'll post some of the quotes used around the room as well as the group crafts.

We have a new addition to our family...we adopted her from a garage sale this weekend. She's going to live in the craft room and keep me company. She makes me smile :)
