BEST FRIENDS AND A CRAFTY IDEA!

 Welcome to our new blog: Creative Craft Nights!

 
We are Tania & Tina and we've been best friends for 14 years!  We have been crafting together for nearly all of those years.  We also attend the same church.  Four years ago we had an idea of starting a Ladies Craft Night at our church as a way to bring ladies together, where they could relax, chat with other ladies and of course...CRAFT! 
 
Our church was small at the time, roughly 60 people a Sunday.  We planned like crazy for our first craft night!  We decided to make a Thanksgiving Candle Centerpiece.  It would be on a Saturday afternoon and we had over 20 people sign up to say they would be coming.  We were EXCITED!!  We bought all the supplies, prepped the kits, bought yummy desserts and when Saturday afternoon came we waited at the church for our crafters.  Only two ladies showed up.  We were discouraged after all that hard work getting prepared.  Well, we held our heads up high and decided we will try it one more time with a entirely different strategy.  Guess what?!  That new strategy worked and our Ladies Craft Night has become a big success!!  We will be kicking off our 5th year of craft nights in September 2014.  In the past 4 years we have seen over 150 different women attend craft nights, made over 20 different craft and developed many new, incredible friendships.
 
This blog is a way for us to share with others who are looking for ideas of crafts to do with groups of ladies.  We will write about each craft we have done, with step by step instructions and pictures to help you with your craft night!  We will also explain how we organize each night and share with you what has and has not worked for us.

  1. Could you share your secret of success? We are also a small church and would love to do something similar with our ladies and incorporate a mission emphasis.
