My Bestest Friends...

Yesterday my three bestest friends in the whole wide world and I got together at our friend Pam's House. Last month we decided that we would do a craft at this month's get together. I was so looking forward to it all month long. We decided Pam would show us her technique to make grubby jars. But I'll show that later. I have never been in Pam's house until yesterday. I was running a little late because my daughter's orthodontist was running behind (imagine that). Pam greeted me at the door and I asked if I could bring my camera in. She graciously accepted. OH MY GOODNESS!!!!!!! Girls let me tell you I was a very rude guest. LOL. I had my back to Pam the whole entire first hour I was there. I was listening, but I was looking at her prim perfect displays!!!!!! And of course taking pictures. Pam is a thrift store redo queen. She also makes most of her prims with some help from her hubby who makes things out of wood such as her shelves. She needs no patterns as she looks at prims on the internet and voila she whips it right up. She has the best ideas too!!! I've already told her she will have a monthly spot on my blog to do a tutorial. Unless I can talk her into starting a blog. ;) She reads my blog so please post your comments because I will make sure she sees them.

Are you ready???? Get set... GO!!!!!!! Pam's kitchen/dining room/living room












































The laundry room...







Pam made the wool picture!!!! It is awesome!!!



Master Bedroom... I couldn't get a good pic of her bed. My camera was giving me issues with the lighting.









My bestest friends...

Pam is in white. I thought I had another pic of her, but evidentally my brain was mush after seeing her house. LOL She never got her white shirt dirty. I was impressed cuz I wore all my spices home. LOL.



Rose is closest you and that's Stacie in the back.



Our crafting progress...

Pam's jars...



Who'd a thunk... The ones that look like milk bottles are Starbuck chilled cappichino(spelling is really off LOL) bottles. Stacie's idea. But these are Rose's creations.



My handy work...



Stacie's awesome creation. We named it the chocolate chip cookie dough jar. Pam made the label. LOL Pam also made another label that said vinegar... but without her glasses on she read it as Viagra... LOL we all had a great laugh about that one.



Now that my computer is smoking from all the pictures I added. LOL. I hope you enjoyed Pam's beautiful home. I know I did!!!! Thanks again Pam for being such a gracious hostess. I had a wonderful day!!!! Thanks Rose, Pam and Stacie for the delicious food too. I can't wait until next month. I will be adding a tutorial soon on how to make Pam's grubby jars. Now my last day off and I need to craft... after seeing everything Pam made I am so in the mood. LOL.

Pam has a wonderfully prim home! You need to get that girl to blogging! I had to laugh when you brought that up about her white shirt never got dirty. Like you, I wear everything I make too. I always have to wear an apron or old work shirt. How do people like her ever get anything accomplished?! For me, being dirty or messy is a true sign of my accomplishments for the day, lol!

You sure are fortunate that you have some friends to get together with to do monthly craft projects! I've tried a few times but most of my friends have young kids and we don't get much accomplished with them around.
