To make it easier to read about our trip to Ireland, I have made a page that is just for that. There is a tab above for Ireland Trip 2014 or click on the Home tab to read my other posts.

Casino Crop

Hey crafty people!
Y'all know that have been on a few design teams, 
but you may not know that I help run a crafting studio.
My Happy Place is located in the City of Tonawanda, 
not too far from my home.
We have crops on most Saturdays and a few times a year
we have what we call Specialty Crops.
These crops run 11 a.m. - 11 p.m. 
and have a theme, goodies for all participants, games, prizes, food
and lots of fun.
Recently we had a "Casino Crop"
We had a lot of fun organizing and running this crop and
I think all the people who came had a great time too.
You know that saying, What happens in Vagas, stays in Vagas?
We decorated the walls at MHP with our version of that saying.
(I know there are a couple letters that look like they are missing, 
they are there, they are white and just don't show up in the picture. Sorry)

I made these little dice boxes for each cropper.
We had some goodies in each box.
The big die in the background had prizes in it for "winners" to choose from.

I had this "Roulette" scrapbook paper, so I added a spinner.
Each cropper was given an envelope of buttons,
they would choose a number and placed their 'button bet'
 and we'd spin the spinner,
if their number came up, they got the pot of buttons.

These are the scratch offs that we gave each cropper.
It was the first time I'd made them, so the scratch off area wasn't as
neat as I'd have liked them to be, but no one seemed to mind.
Everyone was a winner, prizes ranged from an extra punch on their MHP punch card
to $ off a "Crop and Craft"
We went all out with our theme, even with the food.
Above the food table were some dice.
One of the snacks "Casino Cream Cheese with Jalapeno Jelly"

Our "decked" out dinner table

"Texas Hold 'Em Turkey", "High Roller Ham" and "Call Your Bluff Beef"

"Ceasar's Palace Salad"

"Poker Chips and Dip"

To "die" for brownies

"Diced" delight cupcakes.

I hope you've enjoyed this little look at what else I do to be creative.
I love planning for our crops along with Jen and Danielle,
my "partners in crime"
We do have a lot of fun.

Thanks for stopping by,
come again soon.

Until next time, Happy Crafting!
