Work Crafts

So I don't know if I've mentioned before but I'm lucky enough to work a job that requires me to be crafty from time to time.  Right now I'm planning a program to put on in February that's a Pinterest Party!  I'm super excited by it.  I think I finally have my crafts picked and I'm just making sure I have all the supplies I need.  We'll be making these three projects:

And the infamous Sharpie mug!

Here's the method: All you need is a sharpie (any color) and a porcelain dish that you want to permanently alter. You can even use super cheap mugs from the dollar store to create gifts or party favors. Just draw on the surface of your mug and bake it for 30 minutes at

Now the Sharpie mug I tried at the last Pinterest party I did and the Sharpies didn't seem to work so well.  This time I got Painters Markers at JoAnn's and in theory they should work better.  I've also gotten a bunch of stencils to use for both the bags and the mugs if people don't want to freehand.

I'm super excited to try the new crafts and hopefully I'll get a good turnout for it!  

Anyone else hosted or been to a Pinterest party?  Any advice for me?
