planning my craft party! Step 1

I'm planning my first craft party! A few of my friends have expressed lots of interest in getting together to craft, eat, play, etc... So I've decided to make it happen.

Step 1 is trying to decide what sort of craft to make. I've been racking my brain for ideas that everyone can do while still socializing and relaxing. Here are some that I've found at Martha Stewart's site.

Idea 1: Making Pretty Cards

Idea 2: Shadow Boxes

Idea 3: Decorated Picture Frames & Mirrors

Idea 4: Jewelry Boxes

I'm hoping to head to Michael's within the week for more ideas & inspiration.
Any other suggestions out there?

Step 2 will be to plan a menu for a group a women that satisfies kosher, vegan & gluten free diets. I'm thinking Mediterranean salads, falafel, gluten free pita.... Stay tuned....
