Creative Evening

We all had so much fun. The pom poms we're up. The candles burning, the food ready, the friends arrived. The conversation started. The laughter had my stomach muscles working overtime. The girls made their little birds. We made so much fun about our little birds, some more than others. Now we can't wait for next month. I'm sharing a few memories of the evening.

The Invite

My invite to my little Creative Evening. I took one small little paper bag, with a white gel pen wrote my invite, closed it up and sent it off with all my blessings.

Creative Evening

I invited my girls, they accepted, now it's getting organized for the evening. Actually it's this Friday and I want everything to run creatively smoothly. It's a challenge. I gave myself a small little budget, extremely small and want to do everything myself. In between running around for kids, work, husbands, friends, rugby, hockey practices, family, birthdays I think I'm getting there. It's a challenge. It's exciting and I'm very much looking forward to the evening. All the supplies and food are sorted. Getting hubby to do some fine tuning tomorrow evening. Made a few tutorials to share during this week. Got my mind sorted about how I want the blog to go and what makes me happy. It's going to be great fun.
