I'm getting behind on my posting... and need to get back on the ball :( Dan and I got away this weekend and when to South Dakota to see my Aunts and Uncles there. ( moms sister and brother). It was so nice to get to spend some time with them and to get away for a while. It's only about a 4 hour drive so not to bad. I always enjoy the time in the car anyway:) I need to share these photos before Valentines Day has been here and passed , so I'll share my other photos ( from the weekend) in my next post.
The photo jar below is one I made with Vintage Street Market goodies. This was done using things from their Vintage Valentine kit. You can see more about it here on the VSM blog, and see more projects done using it. It was the inspiration for the projects we made when I had the "Art girls group" over last week.
I was good for me to host the gathering this month. Something to focus on to keep my mind off the sad things of the past few weeks. If was fun to dig out Valentine things to decorate the table with.
I even make and decorated some little individual cakes. ( things I used to take time to do, but just haven't for a while).
I used my AccuCut pennent die to make a festive Valentine banner for the window.
And the my girl arrive! yay!
After chatting and catching up... we had some snacks.
...and then the gifts! I don't know how we got started ..each giving everyone some little thing..but I swear it feels like Christmas once a month. lol
The we clear the table and get busy crafting. Actually we did a couple of different projects on this day, but I didn't get photos of the other one. Everyone didn't get finished, so they took them home to finish up.
(Below) every ones photo jars. Aren't they cool?
I look so forward to Art Group days with these girls. Fun group!
