On Saturday, Dec. 17th, Hometalkers in Fort Collins, CO got together for a crafting workshop. While sipping cider and munching on snacks, we made a light up snowman, and a glittering glass tree. It was an amazing time and I met some fabulous ladies and made new friends!

While the glue was drying on the snowmen, we moved onto learning the technique of using Pledge Floor Cleaner and glitter to glass pine trees.

This was such a fun time, I can't wait to do another one! Let me know if you're interested in the next one! Even if we're not close, perhaps we can come up with a way for me to do one with you... there's always Facetime and Skype!

    This is a great idea. How did you find Hometalkers that lived in your area? It sounds like a lot of fun.

      That sounds great. It looks like a fun group and very well planned. I'll let you know how it goes, I will try for late spring because this winter is crazy. Thanks for all the info!!! Merry Christmas!

    In my area there is a home makers club . Once or twice a week meetings. Picnics, quilt parties, mall visits, and a great "outlet" for our widowed friends. Once in a while a quilting for a worthy cause. Lunch is pot luck, bring a dish.
