Super Saturday *Craft Group Style*

After the shock of being told there would be no super Saturday where crafts would be made for our ward. My lovely craft group took action. We decided we would have our own super Saturday with crafts. With this group of ladies anything is possible. In order for our day to be a success there is a ton of work to be done. We all chose assignments...such as being in charge of food, crafts, set-up, clean-up and hosting the event.

This post is showing the project options. Please feel to take a peek and be inspired by the talented ladies I am surrounded by. Just ignore all the linguistics of me talking to my craft group. My blog seems like the easiest way to post the information plus you all get to see some fun ideas.
CRAFT GROUP: We have decided our Super Saturday will be Saturday, November 13 at Kristen's home. It will be from 9:00am to 3:00 pm.

Check out the projects below and email, call, tell (make sure I write it down) me what projects you will be making. All money will be due to me (melinda) by November 1st. That gives you a month to figure out what you would like to do and get your money in.

To avoid being charged for the same item twice for different projects (done by different people) it is my hope that each crafter can bring the following items from your stash at home:

*Paint brush/foam brush. Bring as many as you feel needed.
*Scissors and/or paper cutter.
*Modge Podge. You can never have enough. Go buy the big old one.
*Ink Pad. Each project will state if you need this but my guess is you will need a black and brown one.
*Sand paper

Since Wendy has moved (even with me holding onto her leg pleading for her to stay) certain items will not be provided in her kits. Please read the "details", "you get" and "you supply" section of each project.

I had no clue when we started this that there would be so many projects. Prepare to have a hard time choosing :) I still have one more project to post!

  11. Some of the crafts are being sold. Feel free to email me and let me know what you are interested it in :)

  12. For the wooden play food kits did you cut out the shapes yourself or can you purchase these unfinished?

  13. Do you have a pattern for the lollipop turkey? My Craft group would love to do this one. We also love the menu board. Lots of great work here! Nice Job.

  14. Wondering what your technique is for the book wreath? =)

  15. Do you sell any of the crafts you made for Super Saturday? I am the Enrichment counselor in our ward. We are going to skip Super Saturday this year and do the crafts throughout the year. We want to make menu boards soon and I LOVE these.

  16. Aloha! I just came across your post and I love these ideas. Is it possible to purchase your patterns for the framed "Rejoice", "Peace" and "Adore"? I think it would be an easy craft for the older sisters in our Relief Society. Thank you for your time and for sharing your ideas! Mahalo, Susan
