We had Crafty fun last week!

11 Aug

Thanks to the 27 participants for coming to our “crafty afternoon” of cupcake decorating and duct tape creation!  Much creativity was on display, with the cupcakes — just prior to consumption 🙂 — and in the duct tape totes, wallets and the doggie raincoat you made!  We didn’t get any photos of the duct tape creations, but see below for a sample of the cupcakes….
