Crafts!, Inspiration, Party

It’s a Beach Party!

One of the things we love most about The Craft Shack is building a community of like-minded people of all ages who love to create! Since we don’t have our trailer yet (still awaiting a reply) and we don’t have any parties booked for the month of June, we are hosting a beach party!!!  Save the date: June 29.

By hosting, we mean:
We’ll be at the beach, with our awesome tent set up.
We’ll reserve a fire pit and have lots of wood.
We’ll have fixn’s for s’mores to share.

We’d love for you to join us! Bring your friends, family, beach chairs, sunblock, towels, food and drinks to cook out and stay as long as you’d like. If you know how competitive the fire pits are around Huntington Beach, you know we’ll be there ALL day! Sun up to sun down, so come when you can. You can let us know you are coming by leaving a comment below or RSVP’ing on our Facebook event! We’ll have to disclose our exact location on the morning of the event but our goal is to be somewhere between Bolsa Chica and Sunset (Orange County, CA) with hope that we’ll be walk-able from the free parking area.

And, well, it just wouldn’t quite be a Craft Shack party without a craft. On this day, we’ll be making Truth Cards and sending them to Brave Girls Club.


What are Truth Cards? You can read all about them at the Brave Girls Club site and we’ve taken their brief description to post here too:

“The idea for Truth Cards came as a way to overpower the awful script that sometimes runs in our head, preventing our souls from feeling whole or healed. Truth cards are little messages of love and truth that are written directly to our souls….telling us the TRUTH when we are believing words that are keeping us from believing the love and truth.”

We are constantly inspired by them and absolutely love their style and the positive messages that they project each and every day. They provide all of the instructions on how to make them and where to send them. And even the printable Truth Card making kit. We will have all the supplies ready to go, so you can make one or many and we’ll make sure they get sent back to Brave Girls Club to be distributed to women who need to hear words of encouragement.

We truly hope you will join us and if you can’t because you’re following us from afar, perhaps you will be inspired to make some on your own or with a group of friends near you.

So, to recap:
June 29th 2013
Bolsa Chica State Beach
Sun-up to Sun  Down
Look for our double-wide tent and colorful pennant flags
We’ll post shout-outs on Facebook the morning of the event with our exact location.

Are you in?
