Birthday Bash

Well, the birthday was great! I had a party with some of my friends on Saturday and we had the best time. There were so many people I wanted to invite but space limited the guest list. I also knew some of my friends who live out of town would not be able to travel for an evening party but they were thought of for sure.

We started out with making paper bag purses. Everyone's was different and so beautiful. I wish that I had thought to take a picture of everyone with theirs but I was too busy enjoying the moment to take too many pictures. And even the not so crafty friends were good sports and made one as well.

We took a quick break and had chicken fajita salads with sides of Falafel and humus and grapes. All things that I love. Then back to creating masterpieces. I am going to use mine to put all the pictures of my birthday in. I did make sure to get a picture of everyone there to put in there. After we were mostly done with the purses I opened some lovely presents that my friends were so sweet to bring. You will be seeing quite of few of these things in upcoming art journal pages. There were too many items to list and I can't wait to get my hands on them. First I have to unload my dining room table of all the craft mess and move it back to my art room. Then I can organize and be ready to create. My long-time friend Karin over at brought me a beautiful dessert that she made especially for me. YUMMY! and incredibly beautiful too. She is talented like that. Thanks Karin!

It really was a shame to destroy this piece of art but, what can I say, somebody had to eat it. Then we finished the night off watching Stranger than Fiction, a Will Farrell movie. If you haven't seen it you have missed out. It is the cutest, sweetest story and I won't say anymore, you will just have to rent it and see for yourself. I already want to watch it again. Then too soon it was time for everyone to go home :( and it wouldn't have been a party without a party bag to take home with them. These were kind of fun because I hit an estate sale last week and picked up a bunch of hankies and vintage jewelry that I used to decorate the bags. Each one was different and it was fun to see who picked which ones. Lots and lots of fun and memories to last for a long time.
