I hosted a table sponsored by Plaid (thanks Mod Podge Amy!) where we used Mod Podge, paint, glitter, fabric, and paper to decorate paper mache letters for our homes. If you remember, I did a little teaser post here.
Well, let me tell you: there were some incredibly crafty women there! I had such a fun time helping people learn to use Mod Podge while watching their creativity unfold.
First of all, I have to mention the venue. The Social was held at Catalyst Ranch in the West Loop of Chicago, and I have to say, this is the coolest venue I have ever seen. Super eclectic, funky, and colorful, it was the perfect spot for crafting!
My table was all set up and ready with a sign, paper mache letters, and all the paint, Mod Podge, and brushes I could ever need!
Once the doors opened, there was a flood of women of all ages filling every seat in the place. And let me tell you, the women I had at my table were amazing! Some used fabric...
Some used paint...
And one girl even found an old Charlie Brown book in the scrap pile and used the characters to create a Peanuts R!
And the finished products were just so cute.
Everyone had a fantastic time, and I was so happy I could be a part of it!
Another great part was catching up with great crafty friends, like Candie Cooper!
And of course, the woman who founded it all and is just a pleasure to work with, Amanda Edwards. She followed her dream of hosting a huge Chicago-wide crafting social event, and now each one is bigger and more amazing than the one before it!
Thanks so much to everyone who came out and enjoyed the day with me! It was a blast!
