Happy Summer, Socialites! The next gathering of the Twitter Craft Social will be Wednesday, June 15 at 2 PM Eastern Time. In honor of the season, our topic will be Crafting Up Summer Fun. Get ready to talk about craft projects for young and old, your favorite summer recipes, ideas to upcycle or DIY a popular summer pastime, garden crafts, you name it!

As part of the June social, we’ll have a blog carnival so that everyone can easily share their ideas, pictures, recipes, and how-to photos. Join the Blog Carnival here.

You are Invited to a Garden Party…

… a Craft Social Garden Party!  We’ll gather together at 2 PM EST on May 22 to talk about Garden Party crafts. We’ll also publish the first Craft Social Blog Carnival in conjunction with this theme. Here are the details:

Hour 1: Share pics of crafty things you’ve made for your garden, outdoor living space, etc.  We’d especially like to see recycled and upcycled crafts. If you blog, write about your project and publish the entry on May 22 as part of our first Blog Carnival. We will share instructions on how to be part of the Carnival in a separate post.

Hour 2: Garden Party craft-along. Sister Diane and I will publish a list of basic supplies and using Twitter, we’ll create a Garden Party craft item. Afterwards, we hope everyone will post pictures to our Flickr group.

We will post Blog Carnival, prize and craft-along supplies information shortly. Stay tuned to your RSS Feed and Twitter. Don’t forget to follow @craftsocialnet to receive the latest tweets about Craft Social.

May Craft Social…and more

Save the afternoon of Saturday May 22 for the May Craft Social! We’ll be chatting from 2-4 PM EST . We are working out the details for the May Craft Social theme and will announce it soon.

While we have your attention, take a moment and add @craftsocialnet to your Twitter lists. It’s our new and oh-so-official Twitter account. We may not follow back, but we’ll be sure to tweet the latest Craft Social news and appreciate all your re-tweeting!
