It's A Party !!!



A couple weeks ago, a few of us got together for a visit and thought how much fun it would be to meet some of our fellow bloggers. We feel like we "know you" through your posts, but it would be nice to have a chance to visit "for real." So Joy had the idea of hosting a Blog Party!

There will be treats and much merriment! In addition to this little get-together, we will be hosting a "Make and Take" Crown &/or Valentine Workshop from 1-3 pm. All we ask is that you let us know through a blog comment or email if you intend to sign-up for one or both of the workshops. The cost is minimal: $18.00 for a crown and $5.00 for a valentine (pictures to follow). We will provide all the materials and will have examples if you need some inspiration. Reserve your spot now because space is limited and you don't want to miss out on the
F-U-N!
In the Valentine Workshop, you will be making the little folded, secret message valentine below. The recipient unties and unfolds each layer of the valentine until they find the secret message inside. Each layer is a different paper. This design was featured in Martha Stewart Living a few years ago. I gave it my own "twist" by creating it using vintage materials: wallpaper and book pages. The ones you will make at the workshop will also be made of some vintage materials!



This is an example a crown that you could make at the Crown Workshop. Joy will have many more for you to use as inspiration. If you have a favorite piece of jewelry or what-not you would like to use - bring it!


Hope to see you there!
