Ready for the finishing images???? Me, too. Here they are:
|Lot's of "checking out everyone else's work" was going on.|
|Sharon and CeeKay enjoying the playtime.|
|Laura's work space as she was off "shopping" for more goodies.|
|One of Gail's lovely homes.|
|My sister Jenny's Halloween house.|
We then broke for lunch, and I'm sorry to say there are no piccy's of us all shoving food in our mouths (Thank you dear daughter). After lunch we went directly to the action of gift opening. We did a sort of round robin, where we went by most current birth date, and CeeKay was the first up. You were allowed to steal gifts, but they stayed wrapped until everyone settled on what they got and then the flurries of ripped paper happened. Everyone was surprised by what they got and seemed rather happy, too. The top gift went to Laura in the form of a $25 gift card to Michaels.
|CeeKay up first.|
|Goodies being opened.|
|My sister opening hers.|
|Showing off what they got to each other.|
|CeeKay admiring my neighbor Sandy's winnings.|
|We then convened with a serious discussion of the royal family....|
like "why does the Queen keep her purse so close by?" and
whatever possessed Charles to dump Diana for Camilla?
Deep concerns for such a lighthearted event...;o)
|Sandy finished one of the farmhouses and|
chose to finish her second house later when
she returned home.
|My neighbor Sandi finished her two houses|
in record time and they turned out lovely.
|Alyssa created a "Candy" cottage and a|
"Christmas in Killarney" cottage. Both turned out
|CeeKay's two houses turned out wondrous, in her preferred|
color scheme of cream and black.
|Gail finished one house and decided to finish the second|
|Janice's little cottage turned out spectacular. She,|
too is finishing the second one at home.
|My sister Jenny and her adorable little|
|Joanne finished both of hers, and she's not only|
amazing at making bears, but little Putz houses, too.
The ones that got away!!!!!!! My friends Sharon, Loretta and Laura all escaped without getting final piccy's done of them and their houses. I'm sure it was an error on my part, but something tells me they just didn't want to be immortalized while covered in glitter! I'll let it go this time, but for future events/classes, since I do not make money on these classes I need leverage in the way of incriminating photo's, so I'll have to be craftier from now on. Yes, I'm joking, but I will be more alert in the future........maybe I can tie everyone down till I've gotten all the piccy's...........NO?
I love having these events as they are so much fun, the ladies are fantastic and what can be better than just playing, especially with glitter?
Thank you all for being so patient with me through this process. Next week I'll be back to regular blogging and visiting and I'll post Christmas graphics. Until then, have a lovely weekend.
