Workshop Preview: Me-Time Crafts

Danielle here!  As a kid, I loved camp. And given the opportunity (and time) to go back now, I would. But sometimes being with new girl friends 24/7 for two weeks can be a bit much. All the sharing, swimming, learning, and socializing can leave you feeling as if you need 10 minutes to just hang out quietly by the lake, which is why I loved "me-time." Me-time was camp speak for unscheduled, do-what-you-want between activities time (at least at Camp Chenoa -- Swift Water (Green & White Mountains), represent!).

One thing I loved to do during me-time was work on a small craft -- something that could be easily picked up and put down as time, location, and friends allowed. I hope to run an entire series of Great Escape workshops for different me-time craft ideas, but one I'll be doing this year is the me-time craft most dear to my heart: GIMP! Gimp, also known as plastic lacing, is a well-beloved craft for Girl Scouts. We'll cover a few of the basic stitches and "finishing touches" to turn your gimp items into bracelets, key chains, or other fun accessories.  http://pinterest.com/pin/424534702344197717/

We'll also explore the craftier side of every prepared Girl Scout's favorite must-have item: DUCT TAPE! It's not just gray and boring anymore. It comes in all sorts of crazy patterns and colors! We'll explore fun, easy-to-make items that you keep and can take back to your girls.
Now, go register for the Great Escape and for your workshops! http://gsgreatescape.org/workshops/
