I can’t believe it has already been a couple weeks since our last BE CRAFTY workshop. This workshop was a little different then our typical workshops. I had the honor of hosting with my dear friend Ashley and her sweet daughter in Oklahoma. Together we welcomed 50 young girls and their mothers for a Mother + Daughter BE CRAFTY. The day was as sweet as can be. Seeing all the young girls with their mothers spending a couple hours together, crafting and just being was truly special.

The event took place at The Workshop Tulsa ( a co- creative workshop space ). We filled the rooms with pretty decorations and balloons from Shop Sweet Lulu. We set out supplies on the tables that were lined with white table cloths. Ashley and I painted black polka dots on the sides. Balloons and a chalk board sign that was created by Lesley Zellers welcomed the girls as they entered.
The day was full of smiles and lots of excited little voices. We split the workshop up into two sessions due to the high interest; A morning and a afternoon group.
As the girls walked in they all received a name tag. At the end of the workshop we used the ticket numbers for a couple fun giveaways from our sponsors.
Our treat table was decorated with lots of pretty honeycomb balls, tissue fringe, tickets and fabric strips. As a little girl I can’t image walking into a room filled with such pretty. I could hardly contain the excitement myself.
Cake stands were filled with the amazing Livi Lee’s Donuts. I think the girls by passed the lemonade and water when their eyes saw all the different kinds of donuts.
We spent the afternoon creating 4 projects. Each Mother + Daughter got to create their own project. We encouraged the mothers to let their daughters be as creative as they wanted.
They each got to make a cute storage jar + beaded necklace/key chain + headband and notebook.
We were so blessed to have so many helpers . Carol, Ashley’s mother spent the day helping all the girls /mothers on the sewing machines.
At the end of the workshop we handed everyone a swag bag that was filled so many amazing items from our sponsors.
