When Friends Get Together...

I don't know about ya'll, but when my gal pals & I get together...we love to craft! Pictured above from left to right is Me (Cranky Queen), my very talented friend, Melanie, & the diva of junk, Wanda (Excuse Me Why I Buy This Junk....& we get together often to work on various "creations."
Melanie's house was the location of this gal's night out. She is really into re-purposed jewelry, & chose to work on a wonderful necklace using old religious medallions, crystal chandelier prisms & vintage jewelry.
This is the finished product~this picture really doesn't do this piece justice!
Melanie wore it to work the next day!
The Cranky Queen chose to experiment with an altered~art jar with a sea theme. I filled the jar with sand & shells....& I could not refuse using this vintage picture of an adorable little girl holding a seashell to her ear!
The Queen really concentrating on her task at hand...

Seashells, torn pages from an old dictionary, cheese cloth & sea~themed jewelry was used to alter this jar

This verse speaks to me...
Wanda & I hard at work!
Wanda's choice of crafting that night was changed mid-stream due to some "technical errors"...that happens often~LOL!

Wanda then experimented with a Formica counter top sample tile, making a key chain. As you can see, she was VERY proud of herself!
So at the end of the evening, everyone accomplished something & enjoyed good food, good gossip, fun crafting~even the pups joined in on the fun!
The Cranky Queen is really not that "cranky"...with friends like mine, how could I be?...Good friends are like fine antiques...priceless~


  1. And a good time was had by all! But I have one thing to say. You really MUST start cropping pictures. LOL (Or I MUST get the weight off. That's the better idea.)

  2. Looks like you girls had tons of fun! Love your jar and that necklace!


  3. Fun stuff!! You gals look like you would have fun no matter WHAT you wee doing!! :o) Smiles & Hugs ~ Robin

  4. I love how your sea-themed jar turned out. I have a friend who comes over to craft with me and it's so much fun...we're not always as productive as the three of you were though!

  5. We sure had fun...lets do it again some time soon!! So much junk...so little time!

  6. How fun! I know you must have a blast when you get together with the girls. A night of crafting and girl talk sounds fabulous to me!

    Thanks for linking to the party this week. I've missed seeing you. ;)

    Have a terrific weekend!

  7. This is such a great idea...getting together with friends to spend some time visiting and crafting! Doesn't get much better than that.

  8. Looks like so much fun! Thanks for linking up to Share the Love Wednesday. Hope you'll be back this week!
