The Crafty Girl's Summer Camp

So I shamelessly stole this idea from someone else. But not someone in my town, so I feel like it is OK. And I'm beyond excited about it--and have been for over 6 months now! Drum roll please...............

What: The Crafty Girl's Summer Camp--a 1 week day camp full of fun and crafts
Who: 12 girls ages 8 to 11
When: Monday, June 21st through Friday, June 25th; from 10:00 AM to noon each day
Where: my house
How much: $45; this covers all supplies
How do we sign up: Leave a comment at the end of this post with your daughter's first name, your first name, and your email address. I'm pretty sure no strangers are going to be signing their children up, so I'll know who you are. I will email you specifics after that. If you are interested in signing up, but there are already 12 girls before you, go ahead and leave a comment anyway; you never know when someone is going to cancel. Money will be due June 1st.

Day 5: I've Been Framed!

I honestly have no idea how sign-ups are going to go. If way more people want to do it than I can handle at one time, I might schedule another session in July or August.


  1. Whne you are taking another persons idead to better people lives, I think its forgiven. Girls need a good role model. I am a big fan of Big Sisters.

    What you are doing is wonderful.

  2. Kiersten would love to do this It looks like great fun when do you need the money by? Please let me know thanks LaDawn

  3. Lauren is a pretty sure yes. My mom is in town that week so it is possible we might be gone one day but I will know more as it gets closer. I'm happy you are doing the tote bag!

  4. We're in!
    Thanks so much for thinking of me. :)

    I have an 11 year old - Morgan.

  7. I want to do this exact thing this summer! A friend of mine owns a store and has an extra room that I might be able to use, which would be great since I don;t know if I could fit everyone into my house.

    I will be following your progress and posting about mine soon too! :)

    Best wishes!

  8. I love this idea! I might have to steal it and switch it up for 4-6yr olds.

  9. What a lovely idea!
    Such sweet projects : )

  10. That sounds so cool! My daughter is a bit older and I'm not sure that we live near you but I'm sure she would love that!

  11. Great idea! Something like this would be good therapy for us women in our 30's! I love your blog, and I'm now craving red velvet cupcakes. Kristy V.
