Goodyear Girls Night, Last Time

It has taken me a while to post these pictures.  Perhaps I figured if I never posted our last Girls Night {at my house anyway} in Goodyear, Arizona, maybe it would be like it wasn't the last.  Whatever the case, I had so much fun.  It was so hard to leave such an awesome bunch of ladies, totally crazy and yet totally having their heads on straight :0)  But I sure loved having one last hurrah.

I brought these witch shoes from South Dakota when we flew into Phoenix to pack up our house.  The great thing about leaving all of our stuff there was I had everything waiting for the party ;0}

p.s. ignore the mammoth disaster that was my half-packed house.  Stir in a little crafting madness and you have a real mess!
Anyway, aren't these shoes adorable!?!  
I found the idea on pinterest, but the original post can be found HERE

After following a string of links, I found a pattern, but when I printed it out it was really small.  Here is the pattern after I tweaked it a bit.  Above it the shoe pattern.

And this is the insert pattern.  You don't really need this pattern if you just use paper that is printed on both sides.  

Just pick out your favorite pattern paper, cut out the first pattern, and fold it on all the crease lines.  After that the shoe just folds together.  I used hot glue to glue my shoe together because I used thick sparkly black paper that just wouldn't stay together with regular glue.  The hot glue also worked great on the thinner papers.

*Attention: We must stop this post for a few embarrassing photos {since it is my last chance to embarrass these guys!}
Cathy, this one ended up blurry, but I didn't want to hurt your feelings and not include it :0)

Stacy, Sara, one last head shot of Mary...

And Ashley!  Ashley announced that night that she had officially hit 100 lbs lost!!!  I couldn't be more excited for her.  In only five months, 100 lbs!!!  Awesome.

I managed to get a shot of Jennifer too!  
Sonia and Amber, you guys are just out of luck.  Sorry.

Christina, no worries.  You left before I pulled my camera out, but I have one I just pulled off my phone!  This is Christina with her adorable purse.  She came over when I was making some...I think it is posted HERE

OK, back to the shoes...  Just about everyone made one.
Once you have the shoe glued together, throw some ribbon or charms on there and fill it with a bag of candy, or like in the pinterest picture, a bag of Halloween or mint Oreos!

So very fashionable.  BTW, if you want more of a square toe you need to cut about 1" up the toe part of the shoe and fold the whole thing up.  

We also made these little magnets for the fridge.  I also found that idea on pinterest.  The link can be found HERE.  
The faces are actually stickers sold by Jolee.

As for a couple other darling things that came out of our craft night...Mary made this bathing set.  She made a towel into a bath apron, then used the scraps to make the bath mitt.  She also made these two oval burp rags out of another towel to match.

The cool thing about this apron is that it is the full towel.  You wrap the towel up around baby to keep them warm.

Mary raided my Goodwill stash and found this dress shirt {no one actually wore this :0)  I bought it for yet another project I didn't get to}.  Glad she was able to use it...actually Mary, I want it back ;0)  I forgot that I really wanted that *tee hee*  This apron was made from a button up shirt.  Just cut up the sides, around the arm, and angle to the back of the neck.

How cute is that?  It looks like a really darling shirt.   

I am going to throw this on there too, just because I made one at the craft night, then ended up giving it away.  That was the real reason why I had to make another the other day.  I had to show you how cute it turned out!  Grey and yellow are swiftly becoming my very favorite color combination.

Well, thanks ladies for one last blast!!!!
Gonna miss you all
