February Craft Club

I've posted before that my little group of girlfriends has a monthly craft club. We take turns hosting it and the hostess makes dinner and gets all the supplies and demonstrates a craft. I hosted our October meeting and then it was my turn again this month :)

 I got all the stuff for each of the girls to make a Valentine's Day mailbox for themselves, their child or their spouse. I love this craft because it was super cheap - the boxes were only a dollar from Target and the stands (actually candleholders!) were from the Dollar Tree. I got a bunch of scrapbooking embellishments and stickers on sale at Michael's to dress them up with.
 I put out some of my old antique white dishes (that I got for a few dollars from an estate sale) and I had some pretty cloth napkins on top.
These glasses were a huge hit! I bought a set of goblets at TJMaxx and dipped the stems in chalkboard paint and let them dry for a few days. I love that each girl could write her name on her glass and there was no confusion who's was who's :)
I made this recipe from Martha Stewart for dinner with salads and garlic bread. I'm not kidding, this recipe is SO easy. Literally dump everything in a dish and bake! But it seems kind of fancy because it has orzo and feta cheese and fresh dill. Love it!
I made these cupcakes I found from Pinterest. They are my new favorite cupcake!!!
By the way, if you're on Pinterest and you want to follow me, you can find me under "brittanyhuffman" - I would love to follow you back!!

Happy Wednesday :)

P.S. You all know my love for Erin Condren planners and organizing things! I've been on the lookout for a coupon code or voucher for two of my girlfriends who are wanting a planner - to no avail, boo! - but there is a giveaway happening at my new friend's blog here for a $25 giftcard. :)
