Art & Tea Party

~Laura, Shelly, and Barbie enjoying some friend time~
Many people have been asking what happens at my Art & Tea parties. Thanks to my friend Shelly Grim, now I have pictures to show! Generally the whole thing gets started by the guest of honor and I getting together to create the invitations.
~Barbie bravely trying a new technique~
The day of the party, I have everything ready and all supplies laid out and ready to go in the studio. I then demonstrate the project, and the artists begin creating.
~Tea Baskets for lunch, all home-made goodness~
At a good stopping point (usually waiting for something to dry or cure) we head downstairs to the dinning room for a leisurely luncheon.
~Cindy and Shellys mom chatting as they work on their art~
After lunch, it's back up to the studio, and finish up the project. The day finishes up with home-made dessert. It's a great time to hang out and socialize with friends and crank up the creativity!

For those with less time, I offer a pizza party & project, or solely art lessons and craft workshops.

How delightful! This looks so organized and so much fun! That food looks elegant and yummy! Wish I could see it closer! I admire you for being able to do this during your mourning - I'm sure it was difficult but also good to keep your mind occupied.
The projects look fun and creative!
