During my search for the magnetic board, I *discovered* my other stash. The stash of forgotten craft and art supplies. Well there's the cross stitch, but there's also the paint, the watercolors, the acrylics, Prismacolor, Derwent, Design (is it bad that I like the smell of the markers?), charcoals, the beads, the calligraphy nibs, and pots of ink. And I almost forgot the scrapbooking supplies: the stamps, papers, punches, scissors, and another set of markers (acid free, archival quality:-P) Oy vey, I really shouldn't be allowed in craft stores. At least I've re-purposed my crochet stash for my knitting. I realize that I should probably get rid of them, but I can't let go. One day, maybe someday soon, I might just try them again. After all, I've got ALL the supplies.
My mum's party was quite a success, family, friends and tons of food. (I just finished the last bit of mango mousse cake. Yummy!) Everyone loved the party favors. Later in the party, people had broken off into groups that later became crochet circles. Those who knew how to crochet taught the others.
