The second Books Snacks Crafts Wine Club commenced last night. As usual, we had plenty to snack on:



I didn't photograph the wine selection... but believe me when I say there was plenty!

Madam Secretary doing a fabulous job keeping us organized

Miranda "un-crafting" Autumn's t-shirt rug (I think the plan is to add this t-shirt yarn to another rug in order to make it bigger!):

Margaret getting serious about hot glue:

Glue gun is serious business

I worked on Stephen West's Mystery shawl! Details tomorrow. 

We finished our discussion on Tina Fey's Bossypants and the next scheduled book is Ellen DeGeneres's book Seriously I'm Kidding. I think both these books pretty much sum our little club up...we are bossy, and we take ourselves veeeeery seriously ;)

Sorry for the lack of craft photos but my camera died! I used my iPhone for some of the photos. Next club meeting is in one month, and I'll be sure to have my camera battery charged :)

A couple of gals were interested in the Cucumber Snack I brought. Here's the recipe:

got the recipe from my mom...don't know where she found it!

Cucumber Snack
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/4 sour cream
  • 8-16 ounces cream cheese (recipe calls for 16 oz but I only used 8 oz this last time, and it tasted great!)
  • 2 heaping teaspoons of Knorr's Leek Soup
  • a little pepper
  • 1-2 cucumbers
  • 1-2 baguettes 
  • dill, for sprinkling
Mix all ingredients together (not cucumber, bread, or dill). Spread the mixture on thin baguette slices. Top with thin/medium slices of cucumber. Sprinkle dill over top. Enjoy!

Anyone else stoked that tomorrow is FRIDAY?!
