Pinterest Party

I know. I totally went MIA for nearly a month, and that is NOT like me. Life was a bit of a whirlwind, changes going on, new stages, endings to some chapters. I started to feel kinda down, what with the gray skies and all. Then two things happened: the sun came back out (literally and metaphorically,) and I started doing art again. Seriously, art is better than therapy for the busy/overworked/emotionally draining times.

Tonight I went to a super fun Pinterest party. We had to bring some kind of craft inspired by Pinterest, for the Dirty Santa game, a food item from Pinterest, and our favorite quote from the site.

For my craft I brought this:

It's done on a large canvas board...maybe 11x 14?
First we peeled crayons. lots and lots and lots of crayons. The kids helped a lot with this!

Next, I traced a worship figure onto packaging tape and stuck him on the canvas board.

See that glue gun? I ran the peeled crayons through the glue gun, and all down the canvas board. When it was all dry, I used a toothpick to "cut" around my figure (so the wax wouldn't break off into strips) and then peeled my tape figure off the canvas board. That was all! Fun and pretty easy! My own little sister stole it from someone in the Dirty Santa game, and ended up bringing it home. :)

For my food item, I brought these:
Goat cheese pops rolled in herbs, pecans & bacon. I repeat: ROLLED. IN. BACON.

And this here was my quote:

Such a fun party theme! Thank you, Debbie!

Love the crayon art and the neat idea to have a Pinterest Party. I've gotten so many ideas from there, including this one of yours, that I too have started drawing again to keep my sanity.
