Pinterest Party Stars

I did it! I hosted a Pinterest Party! I battled with a few nerves this morning before everyone got here. Thankfully my neighbor texted before the party offering to help set up. I surprisingly took her up on the offer without hesitation. Which is pretty big for me. It was nice to have the comfort and help of a friend to sooth those nerves.

Hosting the get together means I checked another thing off my Deployment Bucket List. Which makes me feel like I'm accomplishing something, checking things off the list, and moving forward. I'm kind of digging this bucket list. Call it coincidence but my mood has changed considerably since I've posted it.

I plan to post more details later but I wanted to share the stars of the show. The craft and recipe getting the most ohhs and ahhs from my group of gals. Please follow the SOURCE link to pin the two pictures below.

The Best Craft of the Day goes to:

This wreath was made out of cardboard and felt. I bought 15 paper size sheets of felt and free handed my heart. With some hot glue sticks, this wreath cost less than $4. And it actually turns out as adorable as the photograph!
