Garlandy Goodness!

On Friday I had the pleasure of joining my dear women friends for a crafternoon. We strung beads (glass, wooden, and paper), pompoms, and mirrors on fishing line. Why, you might ask? To which we would answer, why not?

I have happily nestled into a community of womenfolk who share my lifelong passion for all things crafty; we all embrace any opportunity to socialize. If we can throw some beads or yarn into the mix, we've got it made!

Here's the Garland Goddess (me!), modelling her wares.

Visit the blogs of these wonderful friends at Twig and Toadstool and Wabi Sabi Wanderings for a garland tutorial, beautiful photos, and daily inspiration. I am blessed to count these women among my friends.

  1. I LOVE the Garland Goddess photo! Here's to many more "Why Not Crafternoons"...

    BTW, you are equally skilled at crafting with words.

  2. Wonderful to see our afternoon from each of our perspectives! Oh...I'd craft away an afternoon with you any day of the week!!!!
    (you too Wabi Sabi)!!
    love love love

  3. You ladies are awesome. I want to come and do crafts!! The garland looks beautiful!

  4. I would love to join you ladies on one of these crafternoons soon! Your joy and spunk inspire me immensely. The colours are wonderful in these photos!
