Craftacular Saturday – Bonus!Posted: June 24, 2012
Well hello….how was the weekend?
May got away from us and my bff Nancy and I didn’t quite get around to putting a Craftacular Saturday on the calendar. Phooey us.
We were back to it yesterday, though….well, kind of. It seems a baby and vino “may” have distracted us. 😉
Here was my plan to craft:
A wine cork corkboard!
Nancy’s projects were these adorable tote and gift bags:
I lined up the first row of corks before I started gluing.
Uhhhh….except….I slightly miscalculated my cork inventory. I only got this far. 😦
I called a couple of restaurants nearby to see if they collected corks – no dice. Boo.
My other bff Jinju happened to be in the neighborhood and checked in to see about stopping by. Corks shmorks, Baby Anton is on his way over! 🙂
Annnnd….she brought pie.
He’s so much fun to swoon over!
After Jinju and Anton left, Nancy and I continued to drink wine and consider plans for the evening. Grill out? Sure! We hit the grocery store for a few supplies. She beckoned her hubby Nate and he showed up a while later, with an additional wine cork stock for my project. Sweeeeet!
Dinner prep. I threw together a Sangria for the ladies.
Nancy made an amazeballs side salad.
Ingredients: Roma tomatoes (two), green beans (a steam-able package), red onion (half), chickpeas (two cans), balsamic vinegar, EV olive oil, and lemon juice (to taste), parsley (a few sprigs), and goat cheese (unmeasured).
So colorful and flavorful….so summer!
Nate shot hoops with the kiddos while food cooked on the grill.
Sam and Henry had S’mores for dessert, we later had the aforementioned pie.
Such a fun day with impromptu visitors and wonderful company! And food and drink soooo delightfully deelish, I could not wait to put my drawstring shorts on. 😉
Later last night I lined up my additional wine corks – I still have a little ways to go. Any donations will be accepted!
I love Craftacular Saturdays that take on a life of their own!
