I went to a good friend’s birthday party last night and had a great time! I only knew a few people when I got there, but by the end of the night I had made some new friends!
Here’s Susan the birthday girl with her gift from me. I used an old sewing pattern for wrapping paper and coffee filter flowers!
I filled a box with tons of ephemera from the estate house that I told you I got to go to before the sale! (Mickey’s good friends parents house) That’s a whole other blog post! Anyway… She loved it! That’s her good friend Abbe, who told me where she teaches yoga and invited me to come on an “easy” night!
Susan is an art teacher for the Springfield Public School System. All of the people at the party were artists/artsy fartsy. Need I say more about the fun we were having? Oh, and this party started at 6:00 p.m. too!
She also got this cool three sided jar filled with medals for her assemblage work. (Wait till you see her bathroom!)
Just one shot of her bathroom. She made these frames. That’s why we all bought her STUFF.
She got lots of “artsy” and handmade gifts~lucky and loved woman! Better slam that last drop of wine so she can blow out her candles!
I don’t know who invited these two. I think they were plastered by 7:30 though.
I talked to a hooker girl, Melanie, that I had met once before at Susan’s at an “art day” a few summers ago. She said she will stop by and hopefully join our library group once a month! She said her hooking is so loose compared to mine and she felt not as perfect as my style. I told her I am trying HARD to loosen up my look and be more free flowing. Just as I imagine her work is! Aren’t we always critical of ourselves? We shouldn’t do that. And check out this room. It’s the breakfast nook in Susan’s kitchen. This girl has more stuff than I do!!!! The puppy is Ricky, Susan and her two kids doggie. He’s so quiet compared to JD.
Here’s me and my old girlfriend, Stephanie. We were friends in high school and ran into each other at The Creamery Arts Center where she is the Director of Creative and Education Something!?!~sorry Stephanie. We hadn’t seen each other in 20 years and said hey I know you!
I had to call home at 9:45 to tell him I was going to be out a little longer. The invitation on Facebook said from 6:00 until 9:00. Well the guitar and harmonica came out around 9:30 and I could tell this party was just starting!! This is Katy singing and playing the guitar. She plays in a band here in town. Sorry, can’t remember the name. Hey, it was a party…I’m not expected to remember Everything!!!!
Hey! We’re OLD!!!
I borrowed some artsy books to bring home and drool over. Here’s what’s left of Jimmie Dean when he saw the bag.
Hope everyone had a perfect Easter.
I’ll make me one later in the week. It only took a couple of days to hook and a little time to put together since I had never done this one before. I’ll show you pictures when it’s completely finished!
