If you've followed along with me for a while now, you'll know that I basically live and breath crafts. Paper, DIY, knitting, and MORE, so now that it's craft month and Spotlight are celebrating this, it's exciting and a FUN excuse to do a little craft project when I can during March! Getting asked to attend the Spotlight National Craft Month Launch was right up my ally. A really fun thing we got to do while there, was watch Patience and Rachel decorate party glasses. NOW... How awesome would this be for a kids party? I do have a birthday coming up for one of my girls and a sleep over is on the cards... So now I'm thinking this is might happen.
Both Patience and Rachel were bubbly, bursting with personality and really funny. At one stage they pointed out to my girls that they could decorate their hats, to which they turned to me with nervous looks on their faces, like ummmmm... to see what I would say. Which caused laughter from the other attendees, my girls crack me up. Both Heidi and Chloe got given the glasses made by Rachel and Patience during their demonstration.
Chloe was SUPER keen to decorate her own pair. So she gave Patience back her glasses, not because she didn't like or want them, but because she didn't feel right she told me making a set and getting to keep another, [proud mum moment]. We got to use these hot glue guns that had an almost pen point on them that are available from Spotlight and SO something I'm going to buy next time I get to a store. They were awesome to use, easy and even my girls could use it.
The table was DECKED out and I mean literally with bling as far as the eyes could see. My girls were in heaven.
Heidi kept the glasses Rachel gave to her and just added a few more touches and Chloe fully decorated her own. Now I need to make a list of supplies. Now that I've gotten to the end of the blog post I just know this is something I am definitely going to set up for Heidi's 11th birthday sleep over party. Of course I'm going to join in, someone has to be the teacher right? Plus I just can't watch and NOT join.
