Huddle Up Girls!

Two weeks, a few of the coaches wives (H.U.G's) gathered in my backyard studio for our 1st ever 'Craft Night! I have noticed that one of the many things that women have in common is they like to create? Well, these girls are no different, and they wanted to 'make something'! So we rolled up our sleeves and 'popped' the lids on 6 giant tubs of various chipped and broken vintage dishes and jumped in!

Our project that evening was to cover a wooden heart with pottery shards to create a Mother's Day gift. Each of us thought of a sentiment to express with tiny letter beads.

This one says, 'Even if she weren't my mom I'd go out of my way to be her friend'. (see curly girl's design site for more sweet verbage...she has the cutest cards!)

So with hammer and snips, we broke and glued and talked and laughed! It was alot of fun! As you can see...

*NOTE TO SELF: next time provide snacks!

Here are our hearts at the end of the evening.

We let them dry for a few days and then got back together the next week to fill in the spaces with sanded tile grout. They turned out so cute. Don't you agree? I know our Mothers will like them!
The H.U.G's are already wondering what we'll make next. Do you have any suggestions?
