CRaFt Party!

“Crafts make us feel rooted, give us a sense of belonging and connect us with our history. Our ancestors used to create these crafts out of necessity, and now we do them for fun, 
to make money and to express ourselves.” ~ Phyllis George

My little girl is not a little girl anymore.  Nor do I plan parties for her anymore.  She plans her own.  And she likes them nice, simple and crafty.  {No big planning and decorating committees like I used to do them.}
For her 14th birthday, she wanted to make sock monsters/plushies with her equally crafty & ultra-artistic friends.
And if you're not, you become one just by hanging out.
All you need is some old (or new) socks...
Some oddities/scraps/found objects...
A good reference book {I borrowed Strayed Socks}
Fillers {you can get them from any craft store or use scraps}
And a little bit of patience and concentration.
And voila!
Here's everyone's creations.
 Now, do they look like their creators?
Thank you, Auntie Breya {who is just as creative} & Taz, for hosting TC's birthday.  She had a blast.
