Monday was a wonderful day with my good friend Skye and her lovely girls. We finally had a chance to have our paper doll birthday party that was postponed due to rampant illness in her house. It was so wonderful to see the girls having so much fun! Lila made a paper doll, a huge ice cream cone and a "pado" (for all of you out there not familiar with a "pado" it's Lila's version of a caterpillar). Harper arrived home in the middle of the chaos and was upset we'd started without her but she too was soon engulfed in the swirl of paper, glue, buttons and other glittery parts and pieces of our art. Time flew and the next thing we knew Grandma and Grandpa were there and we hadn't even thought about cleaning up yet.
Tuesday, Wednesday were dedicated to making a box for my friend Rich's going away party.
|Handmade box for Rich|
|A few of the handmade paper flowers for the centerpieces.|
|One of our centerpieces-thanks to the wonderful help of my co-organizers of the party. It took the 5 of us less than an hour to get them all set up and the rest of the room decorated|
|Centerpieces on the Appetizer tables|
|The honoree Rich, his wife Sharon and the party committee, sans Barb LeMense (who had unfortunately left by this point in the evening).|
|Bee hive theatre in progress|
|Close up of the bee hive-still a long way to go but it was so fun working on it.|
