Pinterest Parties

Ande and I try to have Pinterest Parties once a month.  Today was the day.  Sometimes we do the same project, and sometimes we each do our own.  But, we do it together.

By the end of the day, Levin has had ENOUGH and Ande's dog Chewie NEEDS a walk; but we both walk home with something worthy of being hung on the fridge.

Today it was making clay eggs.

I put this picture in because I like that there are cell phones in the background.
Someday we'll get a kick out of seeing what phones looked like "back then."

Ande is the artist in the family, so it was no small deal when she said I was better at making clay eggs than her.  I suggested she not make her eggs so flat on the bottom.

In October we made wire and muslin mummies.

Following the directions, or at least looking at the picture a lot.

The sheet Ande ripped up for the mummies

Apparently this is my crafting sweatshirt...
Either that, or I wear it so often the odds are high it would be in both pictures

My mummy had to be posed in a break-dance move.
His proportions were so far off, only a break-dance pose could hide it.

These Pinterest Parties just reaffirm my belief that women need women.  Ray seconds it.

I agree women do need women. I think there should be a pinterest party on a Saturday then I could come crash it. =)

Pintrest days are the best!

I'm just so glad you guys have pinterest parties. I third the motion.

I just wish I lived close enough to join your parties!

Okay 3 things I love....
1). I love your apron and I seem to have one like it:)
2). I have that exact sweatshirt and always seem to wear it while crafting.
3). I LOVE pinterest thanks to you and only wish I was closer to join in the fun.

Not only do women need women, but sisters are the best. How fun that you guys are able to get together for fun days like that. (And even if Levin has had enough, he gets Aunt Ande time. From the aunt side, those are special times and I think those relationships are such a sweet blessing. For everyone involved.)

I sometimes find myself wishing I lived in Seattle.
