you’re invited :D

To a craft-along par­ty this week­end! :D

The idea for a craft-along par­ty was inspired by the com­ments from the weav­ing post. Over the years I’ve got­ten to know many of you through this blog — so grate­ful for your craft­ing tips, ideas, and encour­age­ment! I would so love to have a craft­ing par­ty togeth­er with all of you, but we live so far apart! So I thought, why not have a vir­tu­al craft-along par­ty? Where we craft togeth­er in spir­it :D

I fig­ure every­one’s sched­ule is dif­fer­ent, and I’m kind of con­fused about time zones… so instead of set­ting a 24-hour peri­od (as I ini­tial­ly sug­gest­ed in my last post), I thought the par­ty can be extend­ed to the whole week­end :D

So! The details!


When: Sat­ur­day & Sun­day, Novem­ber 10 & 11 — your local time :D

You’re invit­ed to set aside some time over this week­end to craft along with every­one who’s join­ing the par­ty. Can be an hour, sev­er­al hours, the whole day… What­ev­er you wish in terms of the time and what to make ‑ maybe a craft that you’ve been want­i­ng to try for a while, maybe con­tin­u­ing on a project that has been hiber­nat­ing, maybe just set­ting aside an hour to be spon­ta­neous and make some­thing unplanned and free-formed, maybe bak­ing a cake for the sake of bak­ing a cake… Or maybe gath­er some friends and have an actu­al craft­ing par­ty, that would be super awesome! 

Share your awesomeness: 
If you wish, send me a pho­to of what you’ve made, per­haps also a description/story about it, and I will post them right here on the good ol’ blog. It will be like a mini gallery exhi­bi­tion and cel­e­bra­tion! :D

Send­ing pho­to:
Please send pho­tos of your craft-along par­ty project by Wednes­day,
Novem­ber 14 to genuinemudpie[at]gmail[dot]com 


Every­one’s wel­come to join, the more the mer­ri­er, so feel free to spread the word!

Peo­ple are wel­come to join spon­ta­neous­ly, but if you can leave a com­ment below to let every­one know that you’re plan­ning on join­ing that would be real­ly excit­ing! :D   


Have an awe­some start to the week, everyone!

  6. I am going to try and join in. I am mak­ing some Christ­mas gifts for my grand­kids … felt “car cad­dies” for those lit­tle met­al Matchbox®-type cars. Am also mak­ing some felt food; they love that; hope to get some straw­ber­ries and maybe some pump­kin pie slices made.

  7. I’m try­ing to fin­ish up a cro­chet neck warmer… hope­ful­ly I’ll be done in time to send you a pic. This is a fun par­ty!! I’ll bring the yarn. ;)
