Calzones and Pinterest Party
My friend Robin is brilliant.
Yesterday, Robin threw a Pinterest Party! I'm sure many other people have had the idea and maybe even thrown their own craft themed parties, but Robin invited me, which makes her brilliant! I don't think there could have ever been a more perfect gathering of creative women. I learned (by eavesdropping, mostly) how to make some AWESOME felt flowers and Christmas wreaths and the cutest felt Christmas tree for Robin's little girl to decorate, all while putting pedal to the metal on some WIPs I've been slacking on.
Oh, and want some other great, fantastic, splendid news??? I finished Satan's Quilt! Amazing! I know!
I didn't take many pictures, but here are a few shots of friends and my creations:
Bam! Scrabble magnets! Let's see Brent resist the urge to play Scrabble with me now!
How cute is this? It matches my dress I made here. Even though I promised myself I would never subject my children to the same torture my mother did to us, I think we are going to be twinsies for family pictures! I think of it as fodder for embarrassing Mazer in the presence of future boyfriends.
And how sweet is Robin?! She made each of us these mugs with some hot chocolate-y goodness inside!
I SO want to do this again. I had a blast!
Oh, right, the reason I titled this post "CALZONES and Pinterest Party"... I also made some calzones yesterday with a recipe I found on Pinterest. And I've got to say, they were pretty tasty! I think I would like to make my own pizza dough in the future, but the store bought worked just great for our quickie lunch with Dermur and Dre.
If you're looking for the recipe, you can find it here. I also made an olive oil spread with thyme, basil, and oregano to brush over the top, then topped with parmesan cheese.
If you want to follow me on Pinterest, you can do that here.
I'm off to make a board where I can put everything I found on Pinterest that I actually made. So, have you made anything you found on Pinterest?
