Artsy sort of day

Well, it was a super fun day with the girls. We had lunch , chatted , shared ideas and projects, cut dies like crazy, and had fun just creating together.

First I'll share the projects we worked on.

I did these little fairies.

and these... which are pretty silly I know. It's my Dad, with his Dad. If you knew my dad and what a jokester he was , you would totally understand why the "gestures" hat is so fitting.

Paula put her fairy in the shadow box. I love that she cute a ticket to make her hat, and it says Nebraska on it! lol
Everyones projects turned out fantastic and it was so fun to Create together.


We had Chicken salad, with Cantaloupe and Honeydew melon. Cucumber and cream cheese sandwiches and Chocolate Covered Strawberries.

I used my 12x12 scalloped die from AccuCut and Scrapbook Papers for our placemates. (seemed fitting)lol I had gotten these papers in a pkg ... 6 for $1 at the dollar store. I thought they were kind of pretty.

I was so so honored that Jessica made this beautiful piece of art for me. She does this with a woodburning tool , pastels, watercolors and acrylics. I wish you could see it in real life.. it's amazing! You can click to see it bigger.

Stephanie made these for everyone. I told you they were a talented bunch!

Paula made everyone these goodie baskets.

We cut dies for future projects and ... ooooogled over the new bird , crown and wings dies. They have some amazing new dies. You can check them out here .. and also see some fantastic projects on the new AccuCut blog. those girls do a great job of keeping that blog filled with great projects and ideas.
... Oh.. I just looked and my Dress form is posted there right now... woo hoo!! You can see it here on the AccuCut Blog
That dress was the biggest altered project I've ever done. ( and yes... HB.. it took me more than ONE night!) lol


Yep... we had us some fun!

Thanks for coming over girls.. it was so fun! Wish all of you could have been here!

Ooooh, what I wouldn't give to have shared such a special day with like minded crafters! Most of my friends work outside the home and don't make time for themselves. I really need to go to NE for some fun. The lunch table was so inviting; the lily of the valley so beautiful. hmmm . . . reminds me of days gone by in the deep south.
I have a surprise for you . . . but it isn't ready yet. tee hee

What an AWESOME day of fun!!! I'd be happy just to come over for that yummy lunch! ;)

Oh, and I kinda new it would take more than one night to create something that gorgeous. It would have to take you at least two!
