Easter Crafting Party

I had three mommy friends over for an afternoon of Easter crafting yesterday. It was raining cats and dogs and Raffi was teething horribly, even though I captured this one smile of his on camera. He was so clingy and tearful that I didn't manage to craft a single thing, besides frosting some chocolate cupcakes. But it was still fun having my girls over, and they managed to make a few things: Neli made brownie-filled eggs, Steffi made bunny bunting, and Dani took the chance to make finger puppets, although they didn't have an Easter theme.

I was close to tears by the end of it, only because Rafael was having such a hard time and there was nothing I could really do to comfort him. But besides that, it was so nice to have friends over, fellow mommies who understand about a crying baby and understand that sometimes you just need to take your baby to the bedroom even if you have guests over.

Afterwards we all agreed that we should get together for crafts more often, ideally once a month. It's so nice to sit around a table and talk, share, create.

I'm planning on making my bunny bunting and also some cupcake flags while Rafael is sleeping over the next couple of days, as it is the only realistic chance. I'll share them with you when they are done!

Have a beautiful weekend!



  1. Oh what a beautiful setting! How I would have loved to have joined the party...even if it had been as a Great Grandma! lol I'm sorry Rafeal is having such a hard time! But the thought of gathering once a month sounds amazing!

    Blessings and have a wonderful weekend!

  2. What fun! Sorry to hear little Rafael was not feeling too well, teething is very hard, especially the first few teeth, it will get better, promise.

  3. How wonderful Dawn! Monthly creative get-togethers! So sorry Rafael is in pain, hope he feels better real soon. But its lovely the way you're finding happiness even amidst worrying for your baby and all that sleep-deprivation. Cheers to the mommy in you :)
