What a busy week is in store for me this week! Nearly every day there is something going on!
Today we are having company.
Tomorrow is (hopefully) crochet night.
Thursday is a Valentine Making Party for some ladies from church.
Since I am the one with the *brilliant* idea, it is I that is heading this shin-dig up. Therefore, the Valentine Making Party is constantly on my thoughts as I try to plan and prepare food, decorations, card ideas, activities, etc. It is only that I want it to be a fabulous party that I grumble so. What can I do to make it exceptional? How can I encourage the non-crafty to leave, happy with their work? How can I make the home (not my own) festive and the atmosphere friendly?
I really do LOVE to plan parties. I am in my element, so don't believe my grumbles. Truly. I will be encouraging the ladies present to make several cards, setting one aside especially to send to the older people from the church Home or for missionaries abroad. If anyone has any suggestions...please feel free to post them here. I would love to read them. I LOVE to wade through party details...and now I could USE them for this party.
I do plan to make several 'sample' cards to show some 'inspiration' to those who need it, which means I need to get scrapping!
I don't have much time this morning to type all that I would like (lucky for you!),. I have MUCH to do before company arrives this morning. (Remember, we left the house in disarray to escape the gnawwing of the little beastie. Which, by the way, escaped...) Perhaps I will be able to post more of my adventures tomorrow.
Have a pleasant day!
