Crafting for Christmas

This was the first of the craft parties at
 the Feral Turtle pond!
The goal was to cram as many crafts into one day as we could. 
 A good time was had by all, and nobody got their eye poked!
 Of course there were a few glue gun casualties but all in all, a successful day!
We made sock snowmen, which are all over Hometalk and Pinterest.  
We etched glasses for tealights, (no pics...oops) some crafters made cards, and we all crafted a Christmas centerpiece  created from a piece of painted fence board, pine cones and tealight holders.  I was only able to snag a few pictures as it was a busy day with good food (Thanks Mr. FT) and great company!

A few of the crafters with their amazing centerpieces.

This one was mine.

I got a little busy so poor Mr. Snowman is having a difficult time breathing!

The second party was pretty much the same except instead
 of having seventeen people here
  we had four.  Three couldn't make it due to poor weather.
Another party gave me a chance to try out an amazing recipe from one of my
 bloggy friends, 
Heather at the Beating Hearth
A knock off from Starbucks!  
Cranberry, Orange and White Chocolate Love.
Click HERE for the recipe!!  It was very well received.
  I am going to try it again using chocolate chips, as I ran out of
 white chocolate and need to use up my regular chocolate chips. 

 Give it a good!!
Only one pic from craft day two!  But I would say by the smiles on their faces,
 it was a pretty successful day!
