2016 Val-Pat-East-Home Edition

Like how I combined all the holidays into 1 hyphenated word? I'm cool like that.

Let me tell you a story about perseverance.

Once upon a time there was a lovely lady named Christie. She was a dedicated crafter. Some may call her an expert crafter. She had a fun friend named Claudia and they loved to craft together. They even loved to spread the magic of crafting by hosting craft nights. One day, Christie got a terrible ear infection. It was miserable for her poor little soul, but she was in the middle of working hard to get craft night done for her friends in the kingdom. What did she did she do? She persevered and crafted on for 3 straight days all while her ear was muffled and aching. That is how dedicated she was to this craft night. Soon, her ear healed and she was able to enjoy all the lovely ladies who came to craft night.

The end.

Now that, my dear friends is a true story! We have worked hard over the past 3 days to make these crafts, and it was a struggle. We started on Monday, and things were a total joke. We were uninspired, making mistakes right and left, and had all our kids with us because school was cancelled for a snow day. I think at one point we just looked at each other and said, "What in the heck are we doing?! Argh!"

When life gets to this point, you just need to take a break. So, we regrouped and finished all the crafts on Tuesday and Wednesday. Whew. Who knew crafting could be so taxing?

But when all was said and done, it was worth it. We love the way the crafts turned out and can't wait to decorate our homes with them. :)

So here are the details for craft night...

When? Saturday, January 30th
Time? 5:00 pm - 10:00 pm
Where? Christie's house. We'll send an email with the address.

Oh yes... the crafts.

Felt Tree Hoop
Takes about 1.5 hours to complete. (But it's worth it!)

LOVE Board
Board is approx. 8x10 (size may vary a little)
Takes about 30-45 minutes to complete.

Valentine's Day Wreath
12 in wreath
Example is wrapped in yarn (but that takes f.o.r.e.v.e.r.) so your wreath 
will be wrapped in white muslin cause it's a lot easier!
Takes about 1 hour to complete.

St. Patrick's Day Paint Chip Board
I've been wanting to do this for about 3 years now, have had the board for 2 years now
and am so dang excited to finally have it finished!
Board is about 18 in x 24 in. 
It will be made of MDF so it'll be pretty lightweight.
Takes about 1.5 hours to complete.

St. Patrick's Felt Pinwheel Banner
Quite possibly the easiest craft of all time.
Takes about 2-30 minutes to complete.

St. Patty's Day Wreath
Another super easy craft. 
Takes about 30 minutes to complete.

Family Home Evening Board
Measures approx. 10 in x 14 in
Takes about 30-45 minutes to complete.

 It's Your Special Day Plate/Celebrate Plate

Halloween. Thanksgiving. Christmas. Misc. Crafts All Rolled Into One Craft NIght.

Before we start this post we are gonna put a disclaimer out there: We. Are. Not. Professional. Photo. Stylists. Period. The End.

Glad we got that out of the way. And if you're still reading... congratulations to you! We love you. 
We feel really horrible about cancelling last craft night, but life gets in the way. 

We have spent the last 3 days crafting our little brains out to bring you all these glorious goodies. All in the middle of working our normal jobs, school starting for our littles, in the middle of one of us doing a bathroom remodel and the other one just moved. Oi.

BUT it's all good because these crafts are epic. Like epically amazing. Like we are totes redeeming ourselves for cancelling the last craft night.

The whole time we were crafting we were just in awe of how cute every single one turned out. And you bet your beans we will be making #allthecrafts right along side you!

So.... let's get down to the deets. 

When and where and what time will be on our Pops & Podge Crafty Nights Facebook page. 
We just don't want to put that kind of info out on the internet anymore. Kinda creeps us out.

So, if you're not a member of our crafting group on FB, just search for us, and we will add you. 

And for all the new peeps out there welcome, first off. And secondly, all crafts come prepped and ready to go. We cut the wood, sand it, cut the vinyl, and buy all the supplies. We have whatever you need to make these crafts. All you have to do is show up! Yay!

Now... onto the crafts. Love them. Want all of them. 

Trick or Treat Blocks
Biggest block is approx. 9x8 inches.
And yes, that's a dang cute little felt bat. 
This is a super easy craft and should take approx. 20 minutes to complete.

Oh, by the way... all times are approximate and allow for a little eating/socializing/FB scrolling time. 

Mummy Wreath
It's a wreath. Wrapped in cheesecloth. Cute glitter ribbon. Felt bats (we're tiny obsessed with bats...)
Easy craft. Takes about 45 minutes to complete.

Feather Garland
2 choices: White feathers or colored feathers (red, maroon, yellow, orange, and brown feathers. They come assorted, so those are the colors you get.)
You can spray them with glitter (which we h.i.g.h.l.y. recommend!) or leave them plain.
Super easy craft. Takes about 12-15 minutes to complete. 

Wood Pumpkin (or Punkin in the words of Christie...) Patch Trio
Tallest pumpkin is 9 inches tall. About 2 inches wide. 
Cute little buttons and leaves. Cute little sign. Cute little craft.
Pretty easy to make. Takes painting and gluing (yes, that's how you spell gluing. We Googled it.)
45 minutes to complete.

Gobble Gobble Gobble Sign
Comes in 2 different sizes: 11x14 or 10x10. You choose what size you would like.
The letters are stenciled on... we did an ombre technique that we can teach you or you can do solid colors. Ombre does take more time... just FYI.
This is a pretty easy craft, but it can be harder if you ombre it. Just sayin'.
Wood comes all prepped. The pallets are premade. 
Takes about 45 minutes.

Country Fall Wreath
Move over chevron... plaid is where it's at!
We are head over heels in love with house this turned out! And it was seriously one of *the* easiest wreaths we have ever made. It takes about 45 minutes to complete. 


 Sharpie Santa Plates
Small plate (bread plate size) $5
Large plate (dinner plate size) $8
Add milk mug (red only) $4

More personalized options on the sign up sheet.
This craft is pretty easy. All you're doing is making dots. BUT it does take some time. 
So, we're going to say about 20-30 minutes per plate.
Please note that you have to let this dry for an hour and then bake it for 30 minutes.
If you're wanting to do this one, please make sure you allow yourself enough time to make it, let it dry, and bake it. You can be completing other crafts while you're waiting for this one to finish.

Lighted All is Calm, All is Bright Canvas
Painted canvas with stenciled letters. BUT this one has lights on it! 
If you like then you should have put a light on it... 
Sizes: 10x10 or 11x14.
Easy craft. Takes about 1 hour to complete. 

Country Christmas Wreath
Same as the country fall wreath.


Felt Holly Berry Garland
$5 for 5 feet.
Super easy. Just cutting and a little sewing. And if you're not comfortable sewing, we can help you out. No worries.
Takes about 30 minutes to complete.

Have Courage & Be Kind Trio
8x10 signs
Painting and stenciling. Add some hardware on the back to hang. The end.
About 45 minutes - 60 minutes.

Explore Trio
If you want it stained, please let us know and we'll stain it ahead of time.

State Love Board
Yes, we are doing these again because they're so popular. Any state you want. Can even do USA if you want to!
Dark stain or light stain. You choose. But we need to know ahead of time.

You must sign up by October 9th! We also only have a capacity of 28 people. First come first serve.

That's pretty much it! As always if you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask! We're not scary people and will work with you!

Here are da crafts, yo.
