What a fun week. Today was the first part of our tea party camp and we had a great time crafting. We sewed, glued, cut, taped, painted, and prepared for our actual tea party tomorrow. We will spend the first little while in the morning finishing up some decorating details. But so far, we have made our placemats (painted and stamped), sewed our napkins (the kids cut and pinned, and helped sew some), cut and made our bunting, cut, glued and decorated our flower pots and baked the cookies...here are a few pics from today... (but you will have to wait for tomorrows post to see how cute the whole room looks)
this by the way, is my favorite photo from the day - little hands preparing to sew...
Here are some recent finds:
IN THE KITCHEN:
Mini Sugar Glazed Scones (king arthur flour) just like those delish starbucks ones, but better and cheaper - we love that!
FOR THE KIDS:
TEACH MAMA needing ideas for activities with your children, toddlers, great educational find -sent it to the top of my google reader list!
Eye Spy Bottle: 4 Crazy Kings (what a fun idea)
Customized Water Bottles: Siggskins looking for new water bottles for my schooling kido's and this is it. love that i can create something personal for each of them.
And here are a few books we are enjoying from our trip to the library:
What I love about this book aside from the timing (ahem, wrong dryer setting recently - no not me!!) was how all 4 of kids were drawn into it even though it started by my reading it to the youngest. I love books that do that!
Well, come back tomorrow - the dining room is all decked out and a room full of beautiful little girls will be coming for tea. And I will share some pics and more details about everything we did...
