My Girl Scout troop went to the Crafty Cottage in Bentonville last night. We earned the ceramics and clay badge. Crafty Cottage is a fabulous place for all kinds of crafts. They teach sewing, knitting, pottery, basket weaving, etc. My girls had a great time. I knew it was good when Sunny turned to me and said "This is the best place ever". I love watching them learn something new and to see how each of their personalities come out.
If you are local and would like to check out Crafty Cottage go to http://www.craftycottage.net/
and tell GiGi I sent you. All the employees were so helpful and talented
Below are some photos of our night.
Finally set my date on the camera today.
So much concentration. We made a pinch pot and added coils to make a coil pot. At one point mine looked more like a toilet! The girls got a kick out of that
We also painted a piece of pottery. One of the Moms was in charge of taking pictures. Even though I don't like photos of myself I am glad she captures some so that Coco and I will have the memories.
The troop has been busy selling cookies the past couple of weeks. Cookie sales are alot of work but luckily I have a great Cookie Mom to take of that for us. If you know a Girl Scout buy some cookies to support their troop. This is 1 of the only ways they have money to fund trips like the Crafty Cottage.
