pinterest party.

Such a good time. So much craftiness for one church basement. Such fun and wonderful women. So much yummy food. So many good conversations. Some really good laughs. It was a perfect little crafty retreat. And totally free. Can't beat that! 




This perfect crate full of craftiness... from the girl who claims to not be crafty. You're not fooling anyone, Gina. 

Mary claims she can't craft, but holy cow... she can cook.


We may have all just pulled chairs up directly to the food table for awhile. Just maybe.


We presented a fun little gift to one of our favorite internet sensations. =) Seriously... she had gone out for dinner with Pioneer Woman the night before.


Everyone brought their own projects to work on. We had such a variety...







I would suggest always inviting a non-crafty cooking person to any craft weekends you might host. Mary's cinnamon rolls are amazing...

We will be doing this again... and you can see we have room for more! Anyone is welcome to join us!



I was lame and didn't have any fabulous Pinterest projects. Boo. But I updated my little Halloween scrapbook and got all our Christmas cards from 2010 put into our Christmas Family and Friends album.

I spent the rest of the time working on my blog book. Lame. (But the food and socializing were totally worth it!)

I might have wanted to steal this quilt...


Friday was a late, late night. 5 of us left the church at 2:15 am.
I crawled in bed at 2:45 am.
My alarm went off at 7:00 and I managed to get all 3 kids to Lawson's 8:30 soccer game. On time, even! (Somehow I managed to help plan this little party on a weekend that Corey had to work.)
Corey was home by 9:00 and I was back at the church at 10. We had a smaller crowd on Saturday, but still so much fun.

You can read Beki's post about it here... Jody's post here...

Can't wait to do it again, ladies!!

um yeah, ME. I totally want to be there. And I don't know Beki very well, but the very little I do know about her...somehow I'm thinking that the pompom fringe is her very favorite thing in the whole world - right?!?!?

Sounds like so much fun!

Danielle said...

One of my all-time favorite weekends! Loved the time together, the food, the conversation and the craftiness. You know how to throw a great party!

Kara Janzen said...

This looks great! I might have to ask you some more details. A friend of mine and I have thought about doing something like this in the Henderson area...looks like it went well!

Amy said...

You should do one, Kara! It was so much fun.

There really weren't that many details to think about. We found the location and picked a weekend that worked for most of us. I just told everyone to bring a snack to share and their favorite drink. A few people brought cups/plates/napkins/silverware that they already had at home. Everyone brought their own projects/supplies to work on. Very little planning, but it all worked out great!

So much fun! I need another one like maybe next weekend? Already have my next pinterest party in mind.

My t-shirt was snort-out-loud funny!!

I'm looking at your pictures seeing foods and crafts that I missed that night!
We have to do it again.

Thank you girls for such a fun party!!

Melissa said...

I want to come visit next time you plan one of these- how much fun would that be!!! My problem is always picking which of my 100 projects to work on:)

Jenny said...
