I had a party on Friday.
It involved sewing, friends, & food.
A girly party- only you didn't have to buy anything before you left.
A party meant to give.
To orphan girls in Africa.
The idea started when I read this post- by my blog friend. :)
(ok...technically, we're not friends. But I read her blog everyday...)
Good friends make a party great.
They were awesome & made dresses like crazy.
I was so thrilled to have people actually show up.
I knew a sewing party would be scary to some, but they came anyway.
Good food makes a party, too.
Martha cupcakes (they were dry- waaa- it was my fault).
In the end, we had 30 dresses.
30. In one night.
For little girls.
To show them love.
I wish I could be there to watch the party when they're opened.
God's love wrapped up in a dress.
I think this is one of the most favorite parties I've ever had.
It feels good when there's a greater purpose.
*Don't worry girls who came to the party that are reading this.
I was very careful about the way I hung up those dresses.
They are actually all washed & safely back inside their own bags again;).
More party details to come...
