PARTY! + bake sale + craft show + hockey.

Yesterday was my party + craft show! Juli, Shannon and I set up tables in my apartment with all of our vintage and crafts on display for people to come and look, have a drink and buy some baked goods. At first I was quite worried that it wasn't going to work - we have sooo much stuff in our apartment, it isn't even funny. But before everyone got there, I moved some pieces of furniture and books down to the basement & gave my mom things to take home (I'm moving home for the summer, and we're all moving out at the end of May) and because I did all that, it really did work perfectly.

It was $5 for all you can drink (we spent about $70 on beer and drinks and mixes) and all the proceeds from the bake sale went to help out a great animal rescue group called Triple R Pets. They work a lot with Feral Cats and TNR'ing them. (trap-neuter-return - it is the root of the animal overpopulation problem! Once the feral cats are fixed, that's one less litter of kittens ending up in a shelter!) We raised $20 for them, which is great!

donation dino + cupcakes! thank you, mom, for baking all of these AND the 100 cookies!

Shannon sold 6.. yes SIX!! of her amazing bead art frames. It definitely helps that our entire circle of friends are either IN the video game industry or love video games! Juli sold a cord to my neighbor! and I sold my pac man coasters + a dress that I had hanging up in my mini indoor garage sale.

andy is always so happy.

I didn't put much out because I was so busy putting everything together and being a host!

All in all it was super fun! The party was put on pause for the Hawks/Canucks game, but after that we played Apples to Apples and hung out some more. It was so fun and I know this won't be the last time we do something like this!! Enjoy the photos - they were taken by Juli, of course!
