aaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh....That is how I feel once the door opens to my monthly girl's day. I decompress, and soak up all that lovely estrogen - storing some away to get me through the football banquet tonight. All is right with the world until it's time to pack it up and head out to catch the bus and dive back into daily life.
As usual, we had more planned than we had time for, but we were able to plan our first annual Soul Sister's Christmas Party and Secret Santa. This is the deal, we all filled out a questionnaire with the following questions:
Tell me about YOU! Name ____________________
What is your favorite…
If you could visit anyplace, where would it be?
If you were stranded on a deserted island, what three things would you take with you?
What is your secret indulgence, guilty pleasure?
Shirt size ___________
Then folded them up to draw a name. The rules of the exchange are as follows...You must make something for your gift using things you already have in your craft room or spend no more than $10 for supplies. Bring it wrapped for the exchange when your Secret will be revealed!
We will also wrap a cookie exchange into it and bring along 1 dozen cookies for each person to exchange.
Next, we had our "color consult" as marzipan mom beautified us and hooked us up with her fantastic array of Mary Kay products. Have you been looking for a Mary Kay consultant? Look no further...just click here and drop her a line.
Finally, joybeadworks set us all up to assemble a vase to force paper white bulbs. They should pop up in the next 6 weeks, just as we're in need of something pretty.
We chose from an array of containers and filled the bottom with small gravel stones. We nested several bulbs into the stones then topped with some spanish moss.
Tie on a bow and add some water to begin forcing the bulb and you're done!
