Craft Nights and Mangos

Every Wednesday night you can find me attending (mostly hosting) Craft Night. In the beginning there were only two of us but it quickly grew when more alcohol became involved. A couple of weeks ago there ended up being over 20 people in my apartment, and mostly everyone was doing some sort of art/craft.
I've seen a couple of articles about craft nights, what to do, how to host and all that jazz. NOTHING like my craft nights. It got me to thinking if it's even worth calling a craft night. Trust me it is! One week we may be making clown costumes, another week will be all food, but there is always some sort of crafting going on..even if it's just beer drinking (still a craft!). I love it and wouldn't change it for the world.
Just a little insight of what goes on at craft night:
jewelry making, drawing, painting, resin work (fixing bicycles), knitting, sewing, crocheting, and probably some I forgot about. All in all I believe we do a fantastic job.
Just remember there is no "right" way to do something, just do it to have fun and fit your needs!
I thought I'd share a picture from this past weeks, it was taken as the night was winding down and most of the people had left, a good night indeed.

Onto the mango trees! They are doing very well, one has little leaves and is getting taller ever day! The other does not have leaves at the moment but hopefully will start up soon :) I also bought a new pot for them today for when they grow up a little.
