If you have been reading my blog then you already know that we are a team (family) of four creatives. We all pitch in to create and assist the other team members on projects. It is a seamless blending of talents and the best place to be on this side of heaven. Crafting concrete was going to be a fun challenge.
We are all going to Haven Conference (a blogging conference) and there have been some fun contests offered to the attendees while we are waiting to attend we decided why not try our hands at the Quikrete contest. We had to make something with one bag of concrete and make a video of the casting. I had never used concrete and had no idea if this was a good idea, but the team wanted to do it so I was going to need to be a quick study on concrete.
Crafting Concrete Creative Team
Crafting with Concrete the team’s projects
Kippi: We all used Quikrete, but each of our projects used a different mixture. I had no idea there were so many different types of mixtures. It was a breeze to create my project using concrete I wish I had learned about the ease of using Quikrete years ago. You can see my how to make a planter and water feature video HERE. Please note I was out in the Florida sun during the filming.
Patrick: Is our resident concrete expert so he was totally at ease working on his project. He jumped in the first day and had it done then made a couple more projects. Watch Patrick’s how-to video HERE.
Olivia: This was her first time using concrete to create and she really made a stunning project. See how Olivia made a concrete hanging planter HERE.
Sean: Had used concrete for this Eagle Scout project so he was familiar with it but his form was a masterpiece even before he made his project. You can watch Sean make this gorgeous planter HERE.

This was an amazing learning experience for our team not only learning the process of crafting concrete but how to work on four different projects at the same time. I highly recommend using Quikrete for crafting, since it is easy to work with and you can make an endless amount of useful and gorgeous masterpieces.
