Happy Galentine's Day!!

Happy Galentine's  Day friends! I hope today is treating you right! It's a day for celebrating friendships! Every year I hold a Valentine's craft party for my sisters and nieces. I have 8 older sisters and about 15 nieces. It started off as I had no crafty friends so I would entice my sisters to come craft with me one day out of the year. I had to really pull their teeth just to get them to come over. No one wanted to make cards or anything crafty.... now about 5 years later they text me like hey what craft our we doing this year! Our party has gotten so big as new nieces are born and my daughters include their friends so yeah it ends up being one big mess but of so fun! lol

Since we had more littles this year we decided to keep it simple with cookie decorating --- let's go!

So this picture here was mu inspiration - I found it on pinterest. I thought they were easy for the littles to decorate the hearts and us big girls could do the mini envelopes.

I baked the night before. I know nothing like last minute! 

Each of us bought different frosting types and colors.

You can't have a party with out donuts and my sisters love my local donut shop. 

My sweet niece Shawna. Still can't believe I have watched her grow up and now she assists me! 

I gathered some crafts so everyone could decorate  their bags and fill them with cookies for their loves. 

Here is our our new niece Lily and my oldest sister teaching her how to put sprinkles on her cookie. 

My niece Thalia who ate then decorated several cookies :) I think she liked my baking! 

My sweet sister Judy who always  make sure salad is part of out sweets at every Valentine Party!

Here I am with my grand-baby who I adore. I let her put as much frosting on everything because after all it was a party!!

My awesome sister Alma who is like a mom to me and my niece who is like my sister.

Here is a decorated bag. They all loved stamping as I tried to not have mini heart attacks with my ink pads lol 

Crafts, heart pizza and salad before we made a huge crafty mess! 

My backdrop I created was very simple to do: 

Balloons, masking tape and wa- la! 

We even decorated brownies and cupcakes too!

Oh and you know I made all the kids pose by this backdrop of mine! 

Not sure if this movie will play.... but here is the breakdown of the backdrop!

Thanks for staying with me if you made it this far! I have got to think of something out this world next year for these girls! 

Happy Galentines--- don't forget all you need is two people for a party!
