valentine's day craft party with shindig paperie

i learned one thing this week.

lit candles & tissue paper don't mix.

in the midst of making tissue tassel garlands, we had a little fire incident & i'm not even kidding you- these gals kept crafting. they didn't miss a beat! we stomped on that fire & with ashes in our hair, we kept craftin'. y'all, these gals are my people. 

this week was the valentine's day craft party led by yours truly & the fabulous shindig paperie! aside from a few flames, it was an absolute blast!

we sipped fancy cocktails by the amazing jen lewis & enjoyed good conversation over a handful of valentine's day-inspired crafts. we savored mini cupcakes & a fabulous chocolate bar filled with chocolate-dipped strawberries & pink m&m's. 

the gals were even surprised with swag bags filled to the brim by generous sponsors! the gals took home tiny succulents with mini happy flags that i will be debuting in my shop very soon! yay!

i led the girls in instruction on making tissue tassel garlands in pinks, red, white & gold colors.

we also made valentines for our favorite people, including hand-lined envelopes & pretty embellishments. these girls take card making very seriously. love it!

y'all. i can't even get over the fact that i get to meet & teach amazing gals with a passion for living creatively. it fills my heart & blesses me so. 

& so i am absolutely thrilled to announce a little workshop i will be hosting in my hometown area with my girl brandy of bella vita jewelry! more info will be on the blog monday along with registration details, but you do not want to miss this fun afternoon!

my central arkansas home girls, mark your calendars! i can't wait to hug your necks!

Do you charge for your craft parties? I would love to start something like this. Would you mind sharing in more detail how all this works?
