Craft Social = Creating, Eating and Fun!

Last Friday was the 2nd Chicago Craft Social I've attended and it was so fun to be in one place that you can do over 10+ fun and crafty projects. Me and my friend Sarah went this time and we paid our $5, got to eat a plethora of delicious delights and completed 3 projects: Fabric covered boxes, glass etching and ModgePodge coasters.
The coasters are made of maps of the places I've been - Chicago, Africa, Mexico, London. It was pretty awesome that they provided a big fat book of maps for us to cut up!
The fabric boxes were a lot of fun since we got to use awesome designer fabrics care of The Needle Shop. That was a project I've always wanted to try, and now I know!
Lastly was the glass etching lead by one of my favorite bloggers Jessica Jones of How About Orange. That was really neat to do! I especially liked the cup Sarah made that just said "gulp".
The whole place was full of so many things to create yet so little time...actually it was 3 hours, but it was like being a kid in a candy store and you could try a bit of everything for $5. I can't wait for the next one...I hear talk of a Holiday themed one. I'll keep everyone posted!


Wow! Sounds fun. When and where do these happen? Any at night for us working folks?

It happens in Evanston, IL. Its at night too! from 7pm -10pm
