Crafternoon with Miss Pauline

Happy Monday! One thing I never thought I would say is that I have auctioned myself off. Yes, you read that right. My tween’s school was recently holding a silent auction as a fundraiser and they were asking for donations for the community and parents for items to auction off. I thought, why not offer an afternoon for four friends or 2 mother/daughter teams to come craft with me one afternoon, and why not turn it into a crafty tea party too! I realize most people don’t have my obsession with crafting, craft materials, a crafty office space and half of a garage filled with a variety of different craft tools and supplies. And my tween often has friends over where I pull out some items and create a project for them to work on.

So I was pleasantly surprised to see a number of bids to spend the afternoon with me. One of my lovely Club subscribers actually won the prize, and I can’t wait to coordinate my crafternoon with them. And I thought I would take a friendly poll.


If you won a crafternoon tea, what type of crafty art project would you most excited to participate in?

A. Something holiday related (Halloween, Thanksgiving, or Christmas for example)

B. Making a homemade gift for someone else

C. Painting on canvas

D. Food crafting – baking or creating fun yummy treats

E. I would want to be surprised, I don’t have a preference.


Comment below with which one you would pick if you could spend a crafternoon with me where all of the supplies and project instructions were supplied.

Thanks so much for your participation.

    I would want something we created for the holidays that we can use year after year.

    I wouldn’t do a “surprise” food project — too many food allergies, intolerances, etc. out there these days!

    I know my tween and I would love a holiday craft or making a homemade gift for someone…I know that’s two answers 😉
