.......was really held in August but two days late isn't so bad. We had a great time. Not as many came as I had hoped but I guess not all are as "organized" as I am or as excited about Christmas all year as I am. Not that I don't enjoy all of the holidays but there is something so special and sentimental about Christmas.
I decorate a lot at Christmas. I tried to downsize one year but my 2 (adult) daughters, neither of which live at home anymore or help to decorate, had an absolute fit. So I have created a monster and have to live with it for a while.
Back to the party.......we watched 2 Christmas movies, ate breakfast casserole, and crafted for about 4 hours. After they left, DD27 (one of the above mentioned whining daughters) stayed for 4 more hours and 2 more movies. We had a great time.
The snowflake clipboard was made by DD27. Mine is the other one. I think she is going to have mom's creative gene! She did a great job! We both want to add a few embellishments but probably need to go shopping first LOL. Some projects have to sit and "simmer" for a while before they are complete. These were so fun and quick, we just HAVE to make more for our friends.
