Crafts for a good cause!

Of course I put off till the last minute a few things and now I was in a rush. Stressed and needing inspiration I logged on to my blog and began searching for a few quick, easy, and cheap crafts. Ok, so maybe this wasn't such a great idea there was so much that I didn't know where to begin. Finally, after hours of searching I made a decision. These crafts needed to be ready to head to the California Women for Agriculture State convention. As an officer of our local chapter it wouldn't look good if I didn't donate, so crafting I began. Thanks to the inspiration from Jenn at Craft-O-Manaic (www.craftomanaic.blogspot.com) I quickly got to work on a Halloween Topiary tree and a Treat wreath. They were very quick, easy, and cheap! My daughter loved helping with the treat wreath, although I have to say there were a lot less tootsie rolls than we started with and they didn't end up on the wreath, hmmmm.... These crafts we a lot of fun, I highly recommend checking out Jenn's sight she has great Halloween craft ideas. Take a look at my creations, hopefully they will be a big hit at the State Convention!
