The Beautiful Ones

I spent the weekend with so many beautiful people. Friday, I met a group of lovely crafters at Etsy's Craft Party. There were parties all over the US. I attended the one at Inkling Shoppe in Chicago.

The party included everything you would need to craft away: scissors, glue, fabric, trims, buttons, cupcakes, and wine!


I decided to bring the project that has been floating through my head. I wanted to cover my old Beaters and make them beautiful again. The party was 2 1/2 hours so I had loads of time to knock it out and wear them out the door. I made 1 shoe beautiful and got bored. (SN: This is why I have so many UFOs -- unfinished objects). Le Sigh.

Right: I need to clean up my edges and do the other shoe.

I started a fascinator but became more interested in finishing my cup of pinot grigio and chatting with Natalie (Leader of BurdaStyle's Chicago Club).

Natalie (Jill of all Crafts), Kpoene' (Craft Queen Hostess who made her dress out of lace she dumpster dived), and Moi.

Saturday, I spent the day with just one beautiful girl. She's a little cranky though. She has a tooth coming in. Yeah!!! for the tooth, boo-hiss for the discomfort. She also has some nasal congestion. I'm not sure it's a full blown cold though. Is it, mamas? Is it related to the tooth?

The best part of the day was when she knocked out in the new Boba. I had a sweet 45 minutes of peace. V needed it too. She hasn't been sleeping well.

She's sleeps. Hurrah!!

Sunday, I went to The Make-Up Show. I won a ticket from the ChiTown Fashionista (wooohoooo!). SN: She's my favorite Chicago fashion Blogger. I love makeup and really wish I was a person who could do full face everyday and of course know what I was doing. I didn't leave with anything. I am now regretting that. A lot of the products were discounted too. The introvert in me got overwhelmed by all the gorgeous beauties clustered around every booth.


I ended the day at my sister's house with my beautiful family minus Miss V and Daddy V. They had a daddy/daughter day.

How was your weekend?
