March 12th Shopping Trip *More Info

Here is the original post in case you missed it- Vintage Shopping Trip

I've been gathering more information to make sure we are all on the same page,

Here are the bullet points:


  • Meeting there at 11am (because lets be honest, getting there by 10am with 2 kids of my own plus a carpool isn't going to happen) *See Picture Below
  • Parking is $5 (You're gonna want to carpool so you don't waste more money on parking that you could use to buy vintage stuff! I can help set you up with someone in your area)
  • I have posted a picture of the fairgrounds with parking and where to meet. If you are going to be there before or after 11am please text or call me (If you don't have my # PM me on facebook right meow) 
  • As stated before KIDS are welcome and I'll be pushing a stroller with my kiddos in it. (Kids 12 and under are free)
  • Bring cash for parking and in case you'd like to purchase stuff. 
  • Bring a bag because I'm sure you'll be purchasing stuff. Good stuff. Beautiful stuff.
  • There will be food there. Ummm... more specifically Waffle Love and other less important food trucks.
  • Tickets are $7 at the door, but I've heard there is usually quite a line. I have already purchased mine online. With online fees it was $8.81 total. I was sent an email with one of those weird square things that they will scan at the gates. 
If you have further questions please let me know. 

Smaller bullet points in case you don't want to read my commentary... 

  • Meet at North side of the Grand Building at 11am
  • Parking is $5- Cash
  • Still see picture for map of fair grounds
  • KIDS ARE WELCOME (12 and under are free)
  • Bring a bag to carry your purchases in and cash to buy them
  • Buy tickets by waiting in line there for $7 or online with no wait for $8.81
  • Food trucks will be there to feed you.
  • Text or call me if you aren't going to be there at 11am. 
And since I'm posting this on facebook too... If you are here reading this on my webpage, contact me (text, facebook message, email, comment below...) I'll have a drawing for a prize while at the expo for anyone who contacts me and tells me you saw this here. :) 

Talk to you soon!

March Ladies Day SHOPPING! March 12th 10-5

I was talking to my sister yesterday about priorities and how we spend our time and how that shows what our priorities really are. I've been reflecting on 2015, well, because I was making my family yearbook like I've done for the past 8 or 9 years. (I have a link to a free book. If you are interested it is at the bottom of this post.) As I'm looking back at what my family did and what my favorite times outside of family were I can honestly say it's being at and hosting these events! Spending time with you lovely ladies and doing something together... it really sticks with me. And lets be honest! Making and keeping friends is a tough thing to do once you are out of school and have other priorities like kids, bills, homes, yards... all of it. But this year I want to make sure that I keep on top of my household stuff AND taking care of my relationships, because next year when I sit down to reflect on what I enjoyed doing best in 2016 I'm not going to think about cleaning my house or paying my bills. I'm going to be remembering all the fun stuff we did with friends and family.

I missed the Favorite Things Dinner in February- I will make it up this year, I promise! My priorities have misaligned somewhere, but I'm getting back on track!

1st- When you RSVP yes or no to this event I'd like to know your answer to these questions...
1: What do you spend most of your time doing?
      My answer is preparing and doing home school for Oaks and cleaning my house
2: What would you like to spend your time doing?
      I would like to spend more time creating or painting
3: Is there an appropriate way to make that happen with a ladies day?
      Absolutely! That's why I do these! Woodblicking anyone!? Cocktails and Canvas! Yes please!           But I would also like to expand my horizons, my hobbies and my friends list!

Thank you in advance for actually answering my questions! It's just one more way I can tailor these events to include everyone and her interests. Not everyone likes to paint or craft! Some people like to shop! (March will be good for that!)

Also, feel free to pass along this webpage to other ladies you think would want to get out of the house and expand, share and work on their skills and make new friends. I've met and maintained a lot of friendships by doing this because, believe it or not, not everyone who comes knows who I am. They just come.  And age does not matter. I've had 8 year olds and 60 year olds and we all have plenty to talk about!

Okay. On to the MARCH 2016 EVENT!

This is one I'm just showing up to. Starting the year easy. I will create a facebook event with a link to the actual event. Please RSVP on my event so I know to look for you when we are there. Feel free to invite as many girlfriends as possible. This is not only easy for me to "plan", but it is a good opener to new friends to join and meet everyone. Plus its kid friendly!

Here is the basic info:
Vintage Whites Salt Lake 2016!
Saturday, March 12 10 AM - 5 PM
Utah State Fairpark
Tickets are available online or at the door

I took this information right from their event page:

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Grand Building @ the Utah State Fairpark!
Over 100 vendors selling vintage, antique, repurposed, and vintage-inspired handmade goods for you and your home! 
PRIZES for the first 50 in line! 

Live music,, fresh cut flowers by the stem, classes, demonstrations, a fashion show, special guests, a photobooth, awesome food, activities for kids, and more!!

Please note: you do not have to buy tickets in advance for SATURDAY'S show as that is general admission. Tickets ARE available online for pre-purchase and include online processing fees, and you skip the ticket booth. You can buy your Saturday tickets at the door though as well. Kids 12 and under are free.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Here is the link for the free photobook- I can assist you in making it if you need help. It's pretty easy though! 
Remember when you RSVP to answer those questions! You can do it publicly or privately. 

I will update with a meeting place once I hear back from y'all. 
Talk to you soon,

Special Surprise Pinterest Party!!

I'm adding a new element to this years Pinterest Party because of results from last year. We had great attendance, but some were so overwhelmed with choices that they ended up coming empty handed. So... *insert drum roll*

This year I will be hosting a Tupperware party along with a Pinterest Party!! So we can do crafts, make food (or just eat it) and have a blast exploring all the options Tupperware has to offer. Last year the people making crafts were making gifts for the holidays, those that came without a craft wanted to make gifts but just weren't quite ready to pull the trigger on which one. Now you can come, make gifts (for you or for others) and have to option to buy some Tupperware products. (They even have kids toys!!)

I've never been to an actual Tupperware party, but looking online I already have a few things on my list! I should have a link to share soon.

For the Pinterest part of the Party:

Special Surprise Pinterest Party!
Saturday, November 14th @ 5pm
RSVP by November 9th
Tupperware starts at 6pm
RSVP to enter for a prize when you get here!

If you have never been to a Pinterest Party please read below.

  • Log on to Pinterest.
  • Pick something you'd like to make from Pinterest! (Click here for our Pinterest board. Let me know if you haven't been added to it so you can pin as well)
  • Pick a food dish/drink that you'd like to try to make (Or you have already made, but found the recipe on Pinterest)
  • Make your dish/drink to pass at the party. (Plan on sharing with about 10-15 ladies)
  • Bring your supplies to complete your craft, your dish/drink, and plan a few hours to hang out.
  • Eat, socialize and create!
Sound like something you want to do?

If So Keep Reading:


I'm pretty excited for this event! It's just in time to make some Christmas gifts for neighbors, friends, family (and I usually complete something for my kids)!

If you 'd like more ideas hop over to our Pinterest board "Pinterest Party Ideas" and check out everything we have pinned in preparation for this party. I will add you to the board if you'd like to contribute.

I will probably be finishing some projects I've already started but haven't had much time to complete.

Want to complete some of those freezer meals for the busy holidays so you aren't cooking every single night?  Just make sure you have all the things you need. If you need an appliance give me a call ASAP so I can be sure to have it in the kitchen. 

I also have a sewing machine, camera, and plenty of craft supplies! Just let me know if you need something and I will double check if I have it.  

I'm getting too excited! I think it's time to start pinning! Oh and don't forget to RSVP for a chance to win a prize! YOU MUST BE IN ATTENDANCE TO WIN

I will see you November 14th! 

Oh! And...
* NO KIDS unless they are old enough to stay occupied with a craft. I'm trying to veer away from kids at these parties. The reason I started this whole deal was to give all my girlfriends a well deserved night off and away (and to have a night off myself.)

Can't wait!

Did you know you can buy kits of these at JoAnns!?

3rd Annual Wood Blocking Party

Before you read: Please click the blue "Join This Site" link over the to the right. You can unsubscribe at any time, but subscribing will ensure you get emails when I post events. It's easy and will only take a second.

Wood Blocking seems to be the biggest hit for parties! This and the Favorite Thing Party we did last week. (Which was a lot of fun I must say!) We had some pretty creative favorite things to share! I've listed them in case you'd like to get yourself any of these things.

I'll go around the table and start with Patrice because I got hers: (names after are for the person who received the item and each givers name is a link to a similar item they gave)
Patrice: A garlic rolly thing that minces garlic and other things you don't want on your hands, like jalape?os. (Leslie)
Rachel: Decorations and lip balm (Patrice)
Leslie: Journaling supplies for an art journal (Amanda)
Amanda and Sue: they both brought Poo-pourri (haha!) (Rachel and Krystal)
Krystal: Bath and Body works supplies (Which prompted the majority of us to head to the mall for some of our own after dinner.) (Sue)
Lexy: Puzzles! (Jessica)
Jessica: Adult coloring book  (Lexy)

Red Rock Brewery's service and food was beyond amazing and we will probably go there again. September Annually?

And I literally didn't take any pictures! Really!?

Now for October:

Wood Blocking
Sunday, October 18th
2pm-7pm
Bring your craft, a dish to pass & whatever you're drinking 

There are endless amounts of ideas that can be done at these parties! If it's got wood involved, it's game time! I have a laundry list of things that I need to complete. (I have a slight obsession with Wood Creations in Taylorsville) I also need to complete a growth chart for my kids. Last year a few of us made pumpkins out of 4x4's. If you need help with inspiration please let me know. I have a Pinterest board dedicated to this event.

Ben will be around again this year to cut wood if you need it.

I'd like to keep kids to a minimum. Please try to find a sitter. The whole reason for these days is to have a fun day off from being mommies. If you'd like to come and can't find a sitter please contact me before you RSVP. Thanks!

If you have never been to this event and want more information here are some helpful links:

Remember to reference the October 18th event page for times and info though  ↑↑↑

August Event

2014 Results

Lots of good info

2013 Info

2013 Results (with a teaser for Pinterest Party in Nov)


I realize there are a lot of links in this post. Hope you have time to visit everything you're interested in :)

Please RSVP for the October event ASAP so I can plan tables, chairs etc.

On another note: This might be the last time we can have a painting event at my house. This makes me sad because there may be an added cost to rent a venue or pay someone else to host. But we are planning on new flooring and with the amount of paint on the flooring we have now from these events is scary!)

Talk to you soon,

September My Favorite Thing Party!!

Hi again!

This month snuck up on me!



My Favorite Thing Party!!
Thursday, September 24th- 6:30PM
RSVP for location in Murray

ADULTS ONLY EVENT

This is one of my favorite parties! (go figure) This time I'm going to do it a little different to keep the cost down and make RSVP's easier to track. I also won't have to limit the amount of people who can attend.
*This month we will be getting ONE item of our favorite thing. Wrap it up cute and bring it with. Just ONE item. Just ONE! It must be your favorite thing that costs around $5. Please don't get crazy and spend a lot of money. ONE item. FIVE dollars. WRAPPED. Bring it to dinner and we will play a group game to exchange gifts.

If you've never attended a My Favorite Thing Party here are some ideas: Lipstick, Purse Mirrors, Flashlights, Kitchen Gadgets, Food Items (please have something hard to find if you do foods/drinks), Decorations... Pretty much anything that is your favorite thing that costs about $5. (I have included a picture below of what I got from our last party.)

Since we are meeting at a restaurant, I will need your RSVP's in advance (even if it's day of) so I can get a table big enough for all of us. You can RSVP through this comments section, on Facebook, or if you have my number just by text.

Sorry in advance but this is an ADULTS ONLY event.
If you live near me I will have 1 or 2 seats open in my car. (gotta take the kiddos to daddy in SLC before dinner)


February's party wins:



Talk to you soon,

Wood Blocking Sunday, August 23rd

First...
Have you subscribed to get event updates? Pretty soon I am going to stop doing Facebook reminders and just go through here. Please click "Join This Site" up there in blue. All that it's going to do is send you an email when I post events on here. Then you won't miss out on any information or events. You can unsubscribe any time.


Craft Lake City was a blast! We got rained out in a scary storm, but I can't wait to go again next year! There was so much to look at, for the kids to do and so much inspiration! Thanks to all the ladies that came and ran with me in the rain!

Next is wood blocking. There wasn't much notice for the 1st event, that's why I decided to do 2 events this month.  I would like to do this in August so that we have a different season for the projects (if you are new to this, we usually do wood blocking in October so we have a bunch of Halloween-Christmas holiday decorations). We may do it again in October, but I think I may have a different idea...

Wood Blocking
August 23rd, 2015 
2pm-7ish
Bring a dish to pass and your own drinks
You will also need: Wood glue or Modge Podge and your craft
RSVP for the address

I am going to link you over to the last post so that you have a clear understanding of what we are doing. Ben will be home again this year to cut wood if you need it.
I'd like to keep kids to a minimum, but they can play here if you can't find a sitter. Please try though. If your kids are old enough for a craft please supply them with what they need.

Links:

Here is the party information from last year. - Please remember to follow the above information for this years information such as time etc as some details are different than last years.


Here are the results (this should give you ideas of what people actually made. 


Here is the link to the Pinterest board for more ideas. 


  • Everyone bring 1 finger food/appetizer to pass  Some examples- Salad, rolls, cheese/crackers, fruit, vegetables, chips/dip or just chips... Think something we can snack on all day while we work. Please don't spend a lot of money!
  • Drinks. I will have cups for water but if you want anything else please bring your own. I expect many of you to be a bit tipsy... No kids, all girls... Just sayin'
Volunteers:
  • I need tables/chairs. I already have some but I may need more. If you have any please let me know.
  • Plastic for my floor. or paint blankets- or anything that can have paint/glue dropped on it that will keep it off my carpet. 
  • Paint brushes/sponges. I bought some, but I won't have enough for everyone. Please bring what you are willing to share or just 1 or 2 for yourself.
  • Some girlies to help me set up. I will need you here around 1:30pm
What I have- free for the taking:
  • Paper. It's all a mish-mash. If you want something specific please bring your own.
  • Paint. I don't know if I have the colors you want, but I do have paint I can share.
  • Accessories. I have a bunch of scrapbook stuff you can look through and take what you want.
  • Wood. My husband will be here early in the day to cut down to size if you need. 
What you definitely need to bring:
  • Your project 
  • Your personalized accessories such as paper, decorations, paint, screws... I have some but, again, if you want your project to be specific bring your own. 
  • An idea of how you want your finished product to look (This is where Pinterest comes in handy!)
  • WOOD GLUE! This is not an item anyone is going to have extra of or be willing to share if they do. I got mine at Wood Craft (9891 South 500 West Sandy, UT 84070) *Picture of glue below. Other glue will work, but it may mess up your paper. (If you are not gluing anything to your project don't bother getting glue.)
  • Your dish to pass
  • Your own drinks
  • Anything you volunteered to bring
The wood glue Patrice suggests.
 
If you have questions/concerns or want pictures of what I already have:
  • I'm not posting my phone number here, but you can text me if you have/can get my #
  • Facebook message or comment on the event page
  • Comment on here (please subscribe to this website by clicking on the blue join this site button at the top right of this page)

August- Craft Lake City and Wood Blocking

This Friday is the annual Craft Lake City event and we are going! I know it's pretty late notice if you don't follow me on Facebook, but I'd like to extend the invitation to everyone. If you don't know about this you're not alone. I just barely learned about it- hence the late notice. It looks really neat though! Over 200 vendors- crafts, arts, food, live music... Here is the link for ticket info (and you can troll around for more information too)

We are taking the kids and are planning on being there as close to 5 as possible. (I know how it goes dragging along tiny ones) There is already an event made on Facebook with all the info. Here is the link. I will also add my own so that we can all communicate together.

I would also like to get together for a wood blocking party since we missed that in June. (Sorry guys! I really do want to keep up during the summer but my calendar fills up so dang fast!)

Wood Creation in Taylorsville is my new favorite place to get all my wood blocking stuff! It seems they are a one stop shop. I can get the wood, the paper... even glitter and wire! They have lists of what they used to create the displays so you can do exactly what they do- or create your own masterpiece! Plus there isn't a huge crowd when I go and the store is bigger so it's not as cluttered and overwhelming like the last place we went. (Not naming names :)) Here is the website in case you want to check it out. I already have a few projects to complete but I love going! If you want to meet me there please let me know so we can plan it. Now we just need a date for the main event... Anyone? Sundays are the best for me... I'm thinking the 16th or the 23rd (preferring the 23rd) Also, I'm willing to host it at my house, but if anyone else is willing in the SLC area please let me know ASAP.

Talk to you soon! And hope it's on Friday at the craft show!
