Today, I got out all the non-fibery, non-textile crafting supplies we had and organized them in preparation for Thing Two’s crafty birthday party tomorrow. Yeah. I thiiiink we have enough stuff. The idea was to use up a lot of her stuff b/c she has so much. This is also a money-saving feature b/c I don’t have buy goodie bag junk; the girls can just take home the things they make.
In keeping with the do-it-yourself theme, instead of having a cake, I’ll bake cupcakes, and the girls will frost and decorate them themselves. We did this at her party a couple of years ago, and it was a big hit.
The last time we tried to do crafts at one of her parties, it was a challenge b/c the girls needed help, and we didn’t have enough adult hands to help them, so this year our friends Marie, Angela, and Jennifer R. are coming over to help. They’re all fun, crafty women Thing Two really likes, and I have a feeling they’ll be a huge help. Hubby keeps asking what I need him to do during the party, and I keep telling him his job is to be the official photographer. I think maybe this way I’ll actually end up being in some of the pictures, lol.
So, take a look at what we’ve got, and remember that we actually threw out a bunch of stuff a few weeks ago. Do you think we have enough?
