Once-a-month my girlfriends and I meet at our favorite local coffee shop for an evening of childless, testosterone-less crafting (or whatever someone chooses to work on…or not work on) and relaxation. I named it Coffee & Crop (initially started as a scrapbooking night but few of us actually scrapbook). Some work on craft projects, some bring work to get done, some upload or sort photos, occasionally someone actually scrapbooks!
This week one of my friends posted on our page that she was going to work on t-shirt scarves and if anyone wanted to join to bring their own along. I normally wouldn’t have entertained the idea (saw them on Pinterest but apparently wasn’t smitten enough at first glance to add it to my already too large “want-to-do” craft list). But it just so happened that my husband cleaned out his drawers and closet (#MiraclesDoHappen) and had a few NICE, SOFT (read: unstained, un-yellowed, barely worn, completely plain) t-shirts to get rid of. Perfect! I took them along but already had plans of working on daycare photo books, and as it turned out I never got to it. Until last night, that is!
Faith didn’t have school today and we just don’t get enough quality time together. I had managed to get my workout done in the morning (thank you, Katie, for watching the kids at Jazzercise!), and actually had a free evening at home. And while I had a kazillion other things I could have should have been working on, I decided Faith and I would have an evening of crafts and pampering!
We started with a t-shirt scarf for her so that I was sure she’d get to do something before bedtime. Brad found some old t-shirts for her to use and she and I got to cutting strips from our shirts!
