Crafting extravaganza

Ok peeps, got my creative mojo back and this week it's all about burlap!  I made a runner with my daughter's class at school to be auctioned off later and it came out great.  They stenciled on it using my stencils and wrote what they are thankful for on it with sharpies.

This was more about the organizational aspect than art to me, I had to figure out how to accommodate 23 kids and keep them busy and productive for an hour while I helped 4 kids with the runner.  What we came up with is making place mats - basically they drew Thanksgiving scenes on yellow paper which will be laminated. In my back pocket I had a third project for those that finished early - paper towel napkin rings which they painted.  Phew!  It was a busy day but fun.

Now I'm waiting for my new crafting group to come over to "Huset Lagom" for some fun making more runners and drinking hot cider.  I really hope that they like the project too.  At least I have a lot of experience now with the process and I feel pretty confident about how to use the material.  Here's my house set up, now just need to buy some flowers and pop the wine. :-)  Happy Sunday everyone!
