Cowtown Crafters Christmas Party 2016

It truly is the most wonderful time of the year with friends and family. Our annual Cowtown Crafters Christmas is a highlight of the year and this year's party was no exception!

Everyone created a surprise project to be used in the Sneaky Santa gift exchange game. Keep on reading to see some of the amazing projects this crafty bunch created.

Betty the elf made her appearance, too!

Before the Sneaky Santa gift exchange, we played Unwrap the Prize game. Prizes were wrapped inside a plastic wrap ball and each person tried to unwrap it to win.

There were prizes hidden throughout the plastic wrap but in the very center was the grand prize - a Starbucks gift card with a number on the envelope. The number corresponded to Stampin' Up! bundles of products. You should have seen everyone trying to unwrap the goodies!

The Grand Prize Winners:

Are you ready to see those Sneaky Santa gifts? Hold onto your hat! This really is one creative group and I'm always amazed at the beautiful projects they create!

Marliyn created this adorable butterfly shadow box that Laurel is holding (and Janet is photo-bombing!). Did I mention we're a crazy fun group?

Sophia made this beautiful clothespin wreath.

Betty made this adorable desk set and she even poured resin to make the pen holder and the paper weight!

Sharon's tree shadow box was just stunning. 

I created the Hope, Faith, Love banner. Look closely - I used some new designer paper from the upcoming Occasions catalog (it will be released on January 4!). Do you see it?

Laurel created this beautiful tray frame - so sparkly and cute!

Deli not only stamped the fabric but she sewed this adorable organizer carrier!

Shadow boxes were a hit and Cindy's was so beautiful with the sparkly snow and glistening sleigh.

Michelle created the this sweet Jesus picture frame. So pretty!

Stephanie not only created a shadow box but she went above and beyone with the lights! I told you we have a crafty group, didn't I?

And, as if that weren't enough, we all made and received adorable little Stocking Stuffer treats. 

Cindy, Janet, Sharon and I each created one of the boxes below and when we passed out our treats, everyone had a complete set that spelled out L-O-V-E. Be watching for more information about a class coming soon so you can make your own LOVE box set, too!

Our annual Christmas party is just one of the many activities we do as a team! The Cowtown Crafters also have monthly meetings, crafting retreats throughout the year, our own exclusive Facebook group with tons of ideas and so much more! I'd love for you to join the fun with us! It's easy to get started with the purchase of a Starter Kit.

Happy Stamping and Merry Christmas!
