I know this topic is WAY old, but I'm thinking of hosting one of these for all the women in my family. Usually we all go Christmas shopping the day after Thanksgiving, but many of us just can't handle the crowds any more and get too feisty
I thought this might be a fun alternative...and give some of the ladies a morning/afternoon away from their spouses and kids - who doesn't want that!? Help them get a head start on their baking too!
I just thought I'd bump this up for any one else who might be thinking of the same type of party...or maybe it will inspire some one to have a crafty swap party...every one brings some supplies and you all make something - either as gifts, to keep yourself, or donate to a charity (blankets/scarves/hats for shelters or children's organizations, for example).
Thanks for the ideas, girlies...I hope others chime in!
