McKenna’s Artist Party was a Huge Success! The girls had a ball painting & enjoying each other’s company. I found out that most all girls Love to Craft! We had the party at our Papa’s cabin, & it was so nice to have the extra room, not to mention the clean-up wasn’t so bad either!
If you were to ask McKenna what her favorite color would be.. it would be a close tie between zebra and camo. Yes, in her world.. they ARE colors! I LOVE that she is just so versatile! My little red-neck girl 😉
She already knew she wanted Mrs. Rachel to fix her “Zebra cake” & she even explained “How” she wanted it! She wanted a horse in the center with grass! Great JOB to my friend Rachel! It was just what she wanted!
I LOVED making those easy paintbrushes So did the girls 😉 Easy Peasy! It was just Rice Krispy treats dipped into colored candy melts, place a craft stick in one end & Voila . a Paintbrush! I made a trip to HomeDepot for my table decor. My Mom made the “paint sticks” which were pretzel rods dipped in candy-qik, then rolled in sugar sprinkles.
(fyi: gummy worms for 8-9 year old girls go FAST)
All these ideas came from my favorite site.. Pinterest!
I called in a WONDERFUL Friend and Artist, Mrs. Mary, who taught the the girls how to paint on canvas. She had a Peace theme that they all painted. It was neat to see all of their different styles. Each friend received her own 8×10 matte and we got started. Mrs. Mary supplied all of the paint and materials. She came prepared! She does this on the side,.. & I’m working on getting together with some friends and have the same kind of party! CAN’t WAIT!
I must credit my Lovely, Talented Sister for the pictures! I love her work! She can make a portrait out of any photo she takes!
And, my kids.. they smile & pose for her like Nobody’s business….
Just look at those Photos!
Aren’t they GREAT!!
She even had a photo-shoot with each little girl! She’s editing those now, so I hopefully I can share later. 😉 I’m leaving you with a slideshow of the girls in action! If you live in our area & would like contact information on my Artist friend Mrs. Mary or my fab Cake-baking friend Rachel….;) shoot me an email. email@example.com. They are both the BOMB at what they do!
Have a Colorful day!
