I made it through the employee dinner and the cookie exchange............yipee! There's still a lot of ham and sweet potato casserole, and now more cookies than I care to think about! Everyone seemed to have a good time, even the kids had a great time coloring and playing with my vintage toys........yea! I feel vindicated now, having bought all these vintage toys for my future grandchildren. Fisher Price is still king of toys, as far as I'm concerned. I wish I had gotten images to share of the little ones running around with the FP clown jalopy, the FP choo choo train, squeaky toys, Mr. & Mrs. Potato Head, etc. I was pretty busy "hoovering" up all the candy and mopping all the spilled drinks and breaking up pillow fights in our bedroom, but I really enjoyed it. One little boy was particularly smitten with a small stuffed Scooby Doo that talked and every time it said something, I told him he had to kiss Scooby.........and he did......it was so sweet to see.
While at Laura's on Sunday for the cookies exchange, a few of us have started concocting a two day crafting/sleepover event for February. If anyone is interested, please email me with your interest and/or type of project you would like to make or see made. We've already talked about creating our own bottle brush trees to then decorate a pretty box that can be used to either store candy or be given as a gift to someone else for Valentines day. The ever lovely Jenny of "RedheadSadie" mentioned that she'd love to participate and help create vintage hairdo's for anyone who's interested and we can do all kinds of silly sleepover stuff. Nothing is ever taken seriously here at ImagiMeri's Studio's when it comes to play time.
I'll be back next week with a tribute to my dear husband for his birthday.
Take time to treasure everyone you love in your life........everyone, and take a moment to help someone else this time of year.
Hugs N' Love,
