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.
