{super saturday search}

For the past couple of years, I've been involved in planning an annual all day crafting extravaganza...otherwise known as Super Saturday. (but in our case, Fabulous Friday) It's held in the late fall, and it's one of my favorite days of the year--friends, food, and really great projects.

We've now started "the list"--which includes all the projects we'd like to include that day. I know, it sounds early, but with sign up sheets going out by late August/early September, we've got the summer to make all the displays.

So, I'm enlisting your help, because I know how creative you are--I need all your best Super Saturday ideas!

Here's the type of project I'm looking for:

1. Able to make 30-40+ at one time, in the same area
2. Materials are easily accessible, in bulk (no one-of-a-kind projects)
3. Needs to be completed in one day--but some things can be assembled ahead of time
4. Something that will appeal to many people
5. great gift ideas
6. relatively low cost--I'd like to keep it in the $5-$15 dollar range

For those of you who are also planning a Super Saturday, I'd love to know what you're doing!

I'm so excited to see all of your projects, and I'll be sharing my favorites.

This party will be open until August 1st, so please keep adding to the list as many times as you'd like. *No businesses/advertising please.*

I don't have a post to link up to, but wanted to share an idea. we did the glass etching. I think they had specific sayings (I can't remember) and then each person brought their own glass to etch. I love my pan that has our name on it. I don't think it was too expensive either. Good luck. Can't wait to see the other projects.

I thought I'd share some of my favorite nearly-free projects made with materials people often throw away. I hope they give you some ideas.

Love your blog, by the way.

I was in charge of our Super saturday last year and remember the stress of finding what to make. I started a blog for our ward so people could see what items we offered, then they would email me what they wanted to make. I linked to a lot of projects for you.. don't know if I did it right, I have never linked to anything before, but I love your blog and wanted to help!
BTW, we were told our ward is not aloud to do Super Saturdays anymore.. can't do anything that people have to pay anything for! I am soo bummed, so I will live through you :)

I posted a few up on Mr. Linky but I just did our Super Saturday this last year and I thought I'd give you a few more that I don't have posted up on my blog:

Travel pillows (I attached handles to mine)

They were a big hit, but required sewing machines.


Crate Covers

(I made a lot of these)


T-shirt necklaces are easy and fun as well!

hope that helps :)

I am so super glad you are doing this... We are as well planning our Super Saturday for this year and need to keep costs super super low. We want to do a craft for kids, adults and families. We always have people bring soups for the luncheon. So fun and yummy. I'll be checking back often!! -- Oh- and where is the original post of the nativities? I know someone will cut all the wood for them.... Just can't remember where. Any ideas? Thanks!!

I saw a link for a craft retreat a few days ago, but I can't remember what blog was posting about it. But the craft retreat had lots of cute ideas that they were doing as classes.

I really love the Christmas Advent using the mini muffin tin. I plan to make it.

I wish I could come to your Super Saturday. I'm in a married student ward and we don't get to do fun things like that because everybody says they are too poor! Bummer.

I don't know if you have looked here. We did these and they were great.

we did the temple pictures which are a little pricey $47 but alot cheaper than what you see for 200+. Also we did sock monkeys.

I am going to enter this for her because I have made three in the last weekend. I love them, they are easy to do and SUPER cute for girls going to college or any teen that needs a bulletin board. I love the ones I made and I think you will too. The board was $3 the boas were like $6 the flower was from a fake flower that you take apart and get four from it for $1, then the ribbon and bling depends on what you get but like $4-$5 and hot glue. They are adorable and a great gift idea. Good Luck!

GOod luck! Luckily, I've never been on the enrichment committee! Our ward quit doing stuff like this a couple of years ago because it cost money. Any activity that cost even a dollar, they discontinued! So sad!

I don't have any links but I thought I'd share some things we've done. In the past, we tried to offer cheap/free things along with the ones that cost so we could involve more people.

*We've done the family proclamation with pictures on the mat--it didn't go so well because most people forgot to bring the pictures and frame w/mat. But I know that's gone around a lot years ago... and also the Living Christ one with pictures of Christ.

*We did these quiet books, they were a HUGE hit:
I think we had 50-60 and everyone loved them. Unfortunately, I ordered a mass quantity of the page protectors through a craft store and they fell through.. so we had to run around to a handful of stores to get enough (sad). But it was great and we still see them at church (we did it 2-3 years ago).

*Little bath salt sundaes

*boards with vinyl

*I'd love to do a cookie sheet Christmas countdown calendar--but i don't know if that's hard to get supplies for....

*We did strawberry freezer jam once

*Scripture bags made from placemats

*some felt advent calendars and tree skirts

*I think felt finger puppets would be fun, super cheap and easy... and good for moms with little ones.

Good luck. :) I think it's very stressful, but fun too!

Here is the blog we created to show different projects for out Super Saturday. People really like the projects and everything was completed that day. I actually ordered most of the kits from a Utah company, so we did very little of the prep work. It was REALLY nice!
