This month our Craft Club girls were in the mood for a little home improvement. Although our needs were varied (everything from wall art, to decorative coasters, and a clean / dirty magnet for the dishwasher), we kept with the theme in our projects learning new techniques from each other along the way. 

As always, we started out by catching up with the girls and enjoying a few snacks; pita and dips from a local Farmer’s Market, kale and quinoa salads from Whole Foods, fruit, and delicious cookies from Gelson’s bakery.
We did eventually get to work … One of the girls began creating a functional item for her home, a hand painted dishwasher sign to help her keep track of when her dishes are “refreshed” and when they are “disgusting”. We can’t wait to see it finished and displayed in her home.
These adorable coasters were made with just a little Mod Podge, some patterned scrapbook paper, porcelain tiles from Michael’s, and a really fun bird stamp.
Tami began creating pieces for a gallery wall for her home. Martha Stewart letter stencils, a paintbrush, and black acrylic paint were used to include an inspirational quote on simple canvas paper. She is so excited to finish this project and display the entire gallery wall collection soon in her home … photos and tips in a special DIY post to come soon.
Each of these projects will help to improve the girl’s homes in their own way. We hope we have inspired you to choose just one home improvement project to complete this month. It is always fun to have something new to look at or use that you have made yourself. As always, we had an amazing time and can’t wait for next month’s Craft Club meeting.
