Our first......

...make and take Birthday party was a huge success.

I was asked by one of our lovely customers, Donna, if she could bring her daughter and 3 friends to our Saturday afternoon craft club to make something instead of taking them to the cinema, of course I said "Yes" and after a lengthy discussion our 'Make and Take' Birthday party's where born.

The girls were given the choice of 3 items to make,

* a 6" circle with a hanging heart onto which a monogram initial was added and embellished with flowers, pearls, buttons etc.
* a a peg rack for the long necklaces the girls are all wearing onto which we added their name and again it was embellished using the same sort of items
* a pen pot with a wooden primitive heart to one side and their initial to the reverse, the pot can be used for pens, make up brushes etc.

Two girls chose the pots and the other two chose the peg racks, all used pink to decorate them and a vast number of embellishments. The main thing was that they thoroughly enjoyed it and took away an item they had all made themselves. Unfortunately I don't have any photos to add yet as Donna needs to check with the other parents to see if they mind me using photo's of their daughters on the blog.

At the end of the afternoon Donna asked if she could bring them again just for a craft afternoon in the school holidays so another day booked for 'Make and Take'.

All in all a success I think!

A huge 'Thank You' to Karen who dealt with the other customers yesterday whilst I was busy in the workroom with the girls

  1. Sounds like they had fun.

    Perhaps nexttime you can take some pics of the finished projects - just in case the parents don't want pics of their children shown.
