While Mike and I don't normally celebrate valentine's day, I will take any holiday as an excuse to get crafty! I'm much more likely to tackle this with the motivation of others so last Tuesday a few ladies/kids came over for a valentine's day crafternoon.
I'll be honest, I had zero expectations of getting anything done! With a one year old running around and hosting duties, the chances of accomplishing much was slim to none. Surprisingly, that actually made it more fun–– no worries about finishing anything, it was just a time to hang out, relax, and staple some paper...
Lots of snacks, cookies, candy, wine (it was past noon, I swear)... a pretty perfect afternoon I must say.
Things got messy in a really, really good way. With kiddos, supplies, and paper everywhere there was no way we were all going to fit at that table - luckily the floor works and kept the kids somewhat entertained wondering what the heck we were up to.
We kept most of the crafts pretty simple, I'll try and post some tutorials as soon as I can so stay tuned!
I totally encourage you to do something like this with your friends, it was so fun. I've already been told that I need to have another one for my friends who work during the day!
Thanks to all the great ladies (and kids) who came to craft with me!
