MAKERS Craft Saturday Recap

Perhaps the only major FAIL for this MAKERS Craft Saturday was that we didn't get a group picture! We were so busy crafting & making cool things {and crafty friends} we didn't take a time out to pose. Boo. But everything else was pretty much AWESOME. Truly there was so much excitement and laughter throughout the day it was just a joy to craft with this group of women. Each of their projects was as unique & special as them. 

We have to brag on ourselves too, the project variety included everything from sewing, re-purposing items to painting & personalizing everything. Many items were home decor related & make great gifts or inspiration for redecorating a room. If you were to go out at purchase these items finished on Etsy or at retail you would pay more than $400!! What a value you get at J2J!

Anyway, our MAKERS did a few sewing projects, a Garden Flag & a Ruffled Table Runner - let me tell ya, they are ruffling pros now! 

We even had our own resident monogrammer onsite to personalize their projects which was a special touch. Shout out Kara for sitting at your desk for so many hours working with the ladies. You're amaze-balls!

The MAKERS also put their painting skills to use to make customized frames, rustic clocks, &  reclaimed wood signs

 Check out their frame choices ranging from clean & modern chevron to distressed & classic styles. They always inspire us by taking ideas to the next level.

Tick tock LOVE.

Safety first! Rocking the safety glasses ; ) 

We practiced white washing & barn wood distressing techniques on our clock creations.

Some of Erica's completed crafts!

 Julie's colorful creations!

Myra loves rustic & her crafts capture her style.

Getting a little later into the evening...sparkles make us laugh uncontrollably.

We re-purposed old windows into chalkboards. They even learned the tips & tricks for creating beautiful hand lettering on their chalkboards.

The final project of the night was applique banners perfect for the porch or mantle, personalized with the word of their choice.

We can't wait to see where their projects find their final home & we hope we inspired each lady to share their creative spark. J2J is blessed to provide a place & instruction for ladies to be MAKERS!

Mark your calendar for our next MAKERS Craft Saturday....September 14th!
