Thank you all so much for the kind words yesterday on both the studio reveal and our home being featured on The Handmade Home! It’s been such a journey- thank you for cheering me on and joining me in it! 🙂
While I was waiting 18 months or so to have a space (or the energy/time!) to craft, I kept daydreaming about having a craft party at our house. I thought to myself- one day, we will have a kitchen AND a bathroom AND a craft room. And there won’t be nails and debris and 2x4s everywhere. Anyone with me? Confessions of a current remodeler? 🙂
Regardless….that time has come. So I gathered some of my closest and most craftiest friends for a fun Valentine’s Day themed crafternoon. Like any good craft party- we had to have some snacks. And I wanted them to be cute. 😛 I had big aspirations of handmaking a bunch of snacks and goodies, but life got busy and instead I picked all this stuff up from the grocery store. My only rule was everything had to be pink or red. Cause I am Old School Valentines-y like that.
Also- can I add major thanks/photo props to Scott who stayed home just to snap some photos for me? I’m actually IN some of these?!?! Whaaaat?
My good friend Stephanie helped me plan our party, and she came over to help me get set up and prepped. We got a bunch of hearts and things pre-cut for others to use, and oohed and ahhed over both of our crafting tools. 😀
Each girl brought over some crafting stuff with them. We had frames, tons of paper, cardstock, markers- you name it! 🙂 I was also super excited to use my hoarded stash of glitter and washi tape. 😀 I just had a great time with these ladies! There was so much laughter and joy. They make my heart happy…I treasured our time together so! 🙂
So, dream fulfilled. I finally got to have a craft party with my friends after imagining it for 1 1/2 years. And you know what- it was much better then I ever dreamed of.
