Craft party

On Sunday, I held my first ever craft party. It was awesome. My friend Jennie asked me if I would lead Valentine’s Day craft night the week before, so I dug out my piles of paper and stickers and we got to it. Fueled by brownies, someone made a valentine-coupon book, someone else made a cootie catcher, and I made a few little cards to hide in the cereal cabinet : ) So much love!

I highly recommend you throw together a craft night–all it takes is an email out to any vaguely crafty friends  and some space on the floor. In my <700 square foot apartment, we fit eight people, no problem. Oh, and a few supplies–ask your pals to bring what they have. I was amazed at how many people I knew owned glitter glue!!

We ate brownies, and I tried a new recipe that came out more cake-like than I wanted. Here are a few that I am bookmarking to try next craft night…

Peppermint Patty Brownies — I’ve actually made these before, and they changed my life.
