Crosses + Awesomeness = CROSS-OMENESS!!

Yes, us ladies got CROSS-OME this time around!  Tricia chose our craft and has had her eyes set on making these mosaic like crosses.  We had lots of visitors this time around and had lots to eat and laugh about.  Andrea (sister of Jen and Tricia) joined us as did her daughter Kabrina, and Tricia's daughter Storri.  Again, the guests made some really cute things and just may not be invited back! ;)

We started with our cute cards this time.  Even some of our guests brought cards.  The one Erin brought looked like a dirty movie...(not that any of us have seen a dirty movie that came wrapped like this, we are only IMAGINING it would!) wrapped in brown sack like paper and was the size of a video box. 

Momma Krafter and Jen had the same idea....making several cards to give instead of 1 card all decorated.  Jen ended up with Momma K's and Momma K ended up with Jen's! 

(This was the best pic of the tags Karen got!  You will see them on the table in front of her!)
Kim ended up with the brown paper mystery one...so we had to open it and it was very cute and clever indeed!  Erin used a plastic video box and included several scrapbook items. 

Andrea ended up with Tricia's which was some cute flowers with brads. 

Wendy got Storri's which was giraffe print label with aqua and green fibers. 

Erin got Andrea's which was a 'Crafternoon' bookmark (fitting for a student/teacher....she has lots of books to mark!). 

Tricia got Kim's which was a fiber card with a marroon-ish and heart theme. 

And, Storri got the awesome MISC. one from Wendy (looks like FUN stuff!!)

And we had our SKYPE-ing going on, as well!  Here is Kim!

OK....now on to the crafting!
Tricia supplied some crosses and the glue.  We all brought our own embellishments (some brought beads, old jewelry, western embellisments, etc!).

Here are Erin's supplies...Cross, silver paint, pretty colorful beads, silver beads, glue, and a margarita!

Crafternooners Go Mosaic

(yes....this is a bit delayed.....post has been written, but wanted to attach pics.....and the pictures STINK!....I tried copying them from our Facebook group...not so good.......but I really want to get this posted so I can get caught up on our next Crafternoon!)

April Crafternoon found us at Wendy's.  While we thought she was supplying us with all new laptops...it was actually a square stepping stone in a Dell box. 

We had lots of goodies to snack on and some yummy lemonaid to sip.

Wendy had invited her sweet parent in laws, her mom, and a sweet friend, Tabitha to join us craftin' crazies.

Plus Wendy had a 'grout boy' that also tripled as greeter ( "Welcome to Crafternoon!" as he answered the door) and delivery boy (those darn stones were HEAV-EEEE!!!!).  Thanks for it all, Gerald!!! 

We all went about our designs on our own and all assembled them differently.  Best I can do is show you what everyone came up with!  And us getting there!

Wendy's Sweetness she calls "Mom"

Wendy's (she tried telling us it was like "icing a cake"...whatever!)  :)

Fibercard / Card drawing..........Not sure we got pictures of everyone's.  We really need to be better about that.  They are all so cute, clever, and crafty!

Here is the card Momma Krafter designed, that Jen ended up with.  LOVE THE RED AND BLACK!  Plus there was some more matching black and red stickers and other goodies!

But, my favorite part of Crafternoon, is just hanging with my 'family by chance.....friends by choice'.
