It’s Craft Day!

My friends and I decided we need to spend more time hanging out.  So we are instituting a monthly craft day.  Every one brings her own project, and the hostess of the month makes a light lunch.  Today was our first craft day.  Our crafts included knitting a scarf, digital scrapbooking, creating a stash of cards, felting and making party favors.  It was a blast getting some work done and chatting.

Lunch was a fabulous home-made white bean and kielbasa soup with fresh bread and pie for desert.  Health and delicious!

1 pound dried white beans (such as great northern or navy)
14 ounces kielbasa, halved lengthwise and sliced 1/2 inch thick
4 cups low-sodium chicken broth
1 14.5-ounce can diced tomatoes
1 large onion, chopped
6 cloves garlic, chopped
1 teaspoon dried rosemary
5 ounces baby spinach (6 cups)

1. In a 4- to 6-quart slow cooker, combine the beans, kielbasa, broth, tomatoes (and their juices), onion, garlic, rosemary, and 1 cup water.
2. Cover and cook until the beans are tender, on low for 7 to 8 hours or on high for 5 to 6 hours.
3. Just before serving, stir in the spinach. Serve with the bread.

i was working on party favors for my friend’s son’s first birthday.  They are having a farm themed party, so cute.  The favors will be a small box filled with treats and toys.  The boxes will have a little sheep on them with the sentiment “Thank Ewe!”  Hoe cute is that!

I used the Stampin’ Up set On the Farm, with black Memento ink and colored the image with Copic makers.  The sentiment was printed.

Thank Ewe!
Thank Ewe!
