Crafty Things and "Operation Celebration", Day #5

I wanted to show the pictures of the curtains I made yesterday.  Remember this quilt I made back in December for Emily's room?

I had some leftover material and decided to make curtains for her room.  The problem was that there were just bits and pieces of the material and nothing was consistently the same size.  However, I managed to come up with enough for 4 windows.  I did have to use different lining for one of the curtains but again, it was all fabric that was incorporated in her quilt.

My goal is to paint her room.  She wants it lavender with lime green trim.  Blech!  But it's her room and that's what she wants and it will match the quilt.

NOW.......

"Operation Celebration", Day #5

Tonight we are having a surprise party for her with some of her closest friends.

It's a spa theme!  It also goes hand in hand with our small group study, Head to Soul Makeover: Helping Teen Girls Become Real in a Fake World. These are all girls in her small group and we hadn't finished the last chapter which was a make-over party so it all tied in neatly together!  I didn't invite all of her friends because 1) I wanted to tie it in with the small group ending and 2) I really didn't feel like trying to handle a bunch of teens.  So it'll just be 6 of them but they are all nice girls and it'll be easy to do.

The girls will be making their own stuffed pizza (it's an upstate New York thing), decorating cupcakes, and eating other snacks.  They will have facials with homemade masks, paint their nails, make their own bath salts & candles and do a couple of party games that were part of this last chapter in the book.  It should be fun and I have almost every thing on hand.  I do need to go to the store and get a couple food items but overall, I'm going to be able to keep the cost under $20.

The best part is she doesn't have a clue it's coming!  I know she's going to be so excited when she finds out.  I'll post pictures tomorrow.
