Crafts: This year we did make some cards but we also had plenty of things from my pal Wendy Lee. Check out her blog here. She is a crafty one.. She brought in some journals for us to decorate, some burlap and muslin bags and we took advantage of all that for sure. And, there was definitely some embossing going on by the end. My pal Becky had a whole list of people to make cards for so she jumped in and got busy. I love that she actually plans for that with the party. That's why I try to have it early enough that you can send your cards out on time. My pal Anadara was new and she is a brilliant singer/songwriter but a novice at crafting. It was fun to watch her find her way. We had to explain to her it can be like bowling. Gotta play a bit before you find your stride. She actually had some fun stuff to bring (most of which wasn't opened) but we abused her fun green ink pad for sure! Becky is also great for bringing a trunk full of things like glitter, her signature googly eyes and retro Valentine's. Love it. Lots of commercial Valentine cards which are fun to tear apart and recreate into something else. We love it.
Fun was had by all. Very successful day. I love this because I always learn something new that I can use somewhere else. I learn about a new place to find supplies. I eat great food and get to chat with the ladies. Yay!
