Crafty Owls

I didn't want to blog about my Crafty Owls idea because I didn't want to jinx it. Let's face it most of my brilliant plans don't really work. But this time I really, really, wanted this to happen and I am so glad it did!!
I had 11 women over and the first project I picked was to make headbands based on the "Lauren Headband" from this tutorial. It looked easy enough and also adaptable for all different styles.
Not only did these women create - they inspired!! And here is the crazy thing. The thing I really didn't expect, but I should have known would happen, I learned something new about myself and it had nothing to do with crafting. It feels good to be with friends and I really needed it.
Maybe, this idea didn't come to me as a need to be creative. Maybe this idea came to me as a need to be fulfilled... I can not wait for next month!
Speaking of being full of fill... they couldn't resist jumping in a pile of pillow batting. What the heck, right?
On the home front we are landscaping our backyard. Here is the before picture... more to come.

Me too mama! Funny how sometimes things come out of our mouths and then we think "OMG" :) I am so fortunate to have such wonderful friends in such an unfortunate times. (doesnt hurt that we are all going through the same stuff on some level too so we dont feel so nutty lol) and AMEN to that! Craft night is just what the doctor ordered!
