On Wednesday night my friends and I got together to do some crafting, eating, talking, laughing, and cooing at babies (there were 2 babies this time!)  We had a lot of fun sharing ideas and inspiration and techniques with one another and I can’t wait to do it again.  There was learning how to put in elastic for a skirt

And discussions on blogging ideas and picture editing programs

Here are some links to a few of these things that I learned last night:

Over at Blue Eyed Freckle there is a great tutorial on how to put the elastic into a skirt.  The pictures are good and the results are adorable!

Also over here at Made is a great overall skirt tutorial.  Towards the bottom of the great photos are step by step instructions for the elastic but the whole tutorial is great!

My friend A informed me of this great photo editing software Lightroom by Adobe.  It is a tad on the expensive side but I could see wanting to buy it at some point in the near future.  There seems to be a lot more control with the photos and you can change a bunch of little things to tweak it just the way you want.  I think I like the control aspect of it the most.  Until then,  I still like to use Picnik.  If you haven’t heard of it, it’s a great site where you can upload your photos and edit them.  Well, that was a very informative craft Wednesday!  Do you get together for crafty nights?  What kinds of things do you bring/like to learn?

I don’t know about you but I LOVE to find new products and things to play around with.  I have been thinking lately about doing cupcake and cake toppers but wanted something that lasts forever and is a little bit easier to work with than polymer clay.  Now, don’t get me wrong, I love using polymer clay but sometimes I can have difficulties with kneading it and getting it ready to use.  Honestly, I don’t always have the patience so I’m really excited that I found this new product called ClayCraft by DECO clay!  It’s soft, it’s pliable, it dries on its own without an oven and just look above at the gorgeous final product.  The possibilities seem endless and I can’t wait to get some to try it out!  Check out their site for product information, ordering, and galleries of all the amazing things you can do with this stuff!
