the party!

Thank you for your tremendous response to my party preparations on Friday. Your words carried me through as I sewed up all eight sets of ears, horns, tails and reconstructed cracker "bags"... The effort was worth it.

Everyone (including me) had a wonderful time. Five year olds are powerful people! Their ability to express themselves through dramatic play is always fascinating. With such simple props they transformed into magical creatures... a stampede of unicorns dancing through my house is something I'll never forget.

Who wouldn't enjoy being greeted by these lovelies waiting for the next unicorn to come in!? Pin It

  9. wish I had more action shots to share, but wanted to maintain the guests' privacy. Although I'm always ready for an opportunity to dress up, sewing one more set of ears didn't fit in the schedule. I was writing treasure hunt clues up until the very first guest arrived!

  12. My "rosettes", like the ones you used on the metal for the gift bags, never turn out well. Could you possibly do a tutorial showing how you made yours? Thanks!
