Well my friends, you know that I am not involved in hardly any group/club activities; so why not join another?
lol! Yes, this is a big fat lie! If you don't believe me, just
ask my hubby.
Between club, stitching group, quilt guild, craft group #1, and now craft group #2 it's a wonder I find time to do anything else. :)
But somehow I manage to clean my house, (now and then) and even make it to a few thrift shops.
Craft group #2 met last week and we had such a
(s)mashing good time!
Doing what? Making cute little spring/Easter scenes inside of vintage potato mashers.
Each month one of us takes charge and we meet at my home (just happens to be a central location), and have a ball crafting, laughing, and eating.
Everyone's masher was different. There really were some unique ones. Here's mine after it found a place in my kitchen.
I love my little chick family nestled inside an old tart tin and mama is quite the party animal!
Cathy (with a C, this is an inside joke) painted her handle and tucked in a sweet little carrot eating bunny. Shirley, (Zetta's Aprons) who is the one that was in charge this month has 3 of these cuties. This one has a bluebird with a daisy as a hat.
Trina's ( Tea Time with Trina) precious bird is sporting a party hat as well. I love the chippy paint of the red and yellow handled mashers. Two more of Shirley's.
Kimi arrived late and only had a few minutes to put hers together before the photo shoot. She pulled it off nicely!
Paula, (Pollyanna Reinvents) has the cutest little girl wearing a tutu and bunny ears along with a chick resting inside her nest.
Joanne's has the cutest striped handle and lots of wonderful hand dyed seam binding ribbon. I didn't notice that the tag was hiding her nest inside.
And here they all are on display.
This photo made me laugh of everyone snapping pics.
Shirley knew that the mashers would be a fast project so she asked if we wanted to make this quick and easy banner as well.
Of course we said , yes.
I simply hung mine from my kitchen fan hood.
Cathy hung hers on a mirror.
Paula's joined some of her wonderful Easter décor on her mantle.
Trina's is so cute tucked behind the blossoms.
Joanne's is a sweet addition to her vignette of Annalee characters. I love that duck!!
and if crafting wasn't enough. . .look at this spread!
Shirley brought her darling lamb to show us.
Now you can see why I can never say, "no", when it comes to joining another group. (wink)
I will be sharing with these lovely parties:
