Pinterest Craft Night :)

Seeing as many of my friends are totally hooked on Pinterest it was only natural to at some point get our booties in gear and try our hand at making some of the fantastic things we pin :) I've already entered this realm before with joining in on the Pinterest Challenge (you can see my previous attempts here and here) and this time wanted it to be a more social occasion.
I got in touch with some of my crafty friends who were close by and we decided to have a craft night.
Meet Liesl...
and Mia...
who were awesome enough to agree to the plan. We jumped backwards and forwards about how we were going to do it. We debated about everyone choosing something off their boards they wanted to make or choosing something collectively which we could all try together :) We ended up deciding on the latter and decided to make the angels you see below.(you can find the original Pin Here)
As this was an etsy Listing there weren't any instructions so we had to wing it a little bit . There was also the slight hangup of not being able to find any natural coloured tongue depressors and ending up with the craziest coloured ones ever!
We painted and ate and chatted and glued and had an awesome evening. Our little angels were surprisingly time consuming to make but in the end I think the turned out to be very cute :)
Here is our 'choir" as we christened them:)
My angels are now at home hanging out happily on our Christmas tree.
We're very excited for Christmas (the trees been up since middle November:)) and the angels add a perfect touch of home-made fun.
We enjoyed it so much we're talking about making it a more regular thing, so here's hoping there'll be many more fun craft nights ahead :)
