Simple October Workshop - Christmas Edition

We had the best time crafting at the Simple October Workshop.
These nights are filled with good conversation, growing friendships, crafting pretty things, treats and coffee.
Some of my most favorite handmade shops sent some goodies for the ladies that attended. Each one unique and so very talented. I'll be posting all the details about them soon.

We crafted festive felt banners, faux Christmas tree snow globes, hand stamped muslin bags, and creative paper gift tags. Seeing all these creative ladies bring their own style into each one of their crafted items is my favorite. I am so sad that I didn't get a photo of all the finished projects together this time. They were all amazing!

Vintage trucks with tiny Christmas trees and sprigs of evergreen decorated little parts here and there. Oh, my heart!
Thanks to my mom for trucks. They are all from her and are so cute. I'm sure some of them were my dad's when he was little.

One of my sisters made the chocolate layered bars and my mom made thin twice baked potatoes and spinach artichoke dip. I only made the white chocolate peppermint tarts but everything was delicious!

One of my sisters hand cut each one of the paper snowflakes that were hanging from the ceiling. They made the room feel magical with the twinkle lights. Also, I have to mention that my brother in law, Kyle, helped us so much by hanging everything from the ceiling. We would not have made it without him.

And seriously, I would have been so over my head with trying to get everything done without help from my mom, sister, brother in law, and my husband for watching our twins the entire day. Liam still stays with me and he was such a trooper hanging out with us while we worked.

I'm so blessed to have so many wonderful people in my life.

Thanks to all who came, you are such a blessing to me and your support is immeasurable. Thank you!
