Oh man! That chair gets so much attention. And after covering it with blue jeans, it became a lot more comfy. Like how your favorite pair of jeans feels, you know? You DO need a LOT of hot glue sticks, though. I bought 2 huge packages at the home depot store, and I had 2 glue guns going at the same time.
These were so much fun! I made a bunch of them and put tea lights in them. But I think I will put candy corn in some of them to give away. I love Halloween. But,I couldn't find black glitter. So I used those hole-less beads. Now my table and floor are covered with them because they bounce like crazy! I'll have to get my lint roller out to clean up I guess.

It's time for another Tulsa Crafters Meet-Up! The last one was so fun that we decided to get together again. Same time, same place, different date. Meet us at Doubleshots on 17th & Boston at 2:00 on Saturday, August the 19th. Be sure and bring some of your craft projects to share. We are going to have a craft mag swap, too. So, go through your stash of old magazines to see if there are any that you are willing to part with, and you can trade them for mags that someone else brings. We just want to feed your craft addiction, that's all! If you want to post the flier at your fave craft store, download the PDF file at the What's New Page on www.pattiewack.com. I can't wait to see what Christine and Jenny share this time. I'll bring my camera, so bring your smile!
The Tulsa Crafters Meet-Up was FUN! There were yummmmy soy candles, cheeky mirror star magnets, darling button embroidered cards, an appliqued purse, stenciled soulful tees, paper teacups, paper dolls, a masked scrapbook, and a bodacious album filled with outrageous mosaics and amazing miniature models of interior designs. And that's only the stuff I can remember. Whew!
Here's a pic of us doing a little show-n-tell in between giggles and java. The temp outside was blazin', but we were cool chicks inside with iced coffee and great projects and ideas to swap. We want to do it again! So, if you are in the Tulsa area you might wanna think about meeting us next time. I'll be sure to post the time, date and place in the next PattieWack Newsletter.
Kudos to Jenny (on the left) and Christine (in the center) for their cool crafts and inspiration. I think that now I am going to have to try my hand at making soy candles, and maybe even try cutting a stencil from a photo for an extremely rad tee-shirt. See ya next time!
