But first, a few things you should know…

1. The party is on Sunday, October 18 at 6:00 pm. It will be held at Mount Paran North1700 Allgood Road Marietta GA.

2. There is a $10 registration/I-promise-I’ll-be-there/help cover a few things donation/fee. There are only 44 spots available right now, so sign up as soon as you can! I’ll close RSVPs on Thursday, October 8th!

3. In order to attend, you must sign up to bring craft supplies for 22 children. Each available party slot is a craft. For example, you may sign up for “Day 1 – Candle” and bring all the supplies for 22 kids to complete the candle craft.

4. You must sign up per child. If you have 3 children, sign up for 3 craft slots. Basically, you walk in with supplies for 3 kids, you walk out with supplies for 3 kids.

5. Some crafts require many supplies and others only a few. As you prep each bag, make sure you have the appropriate size and amount of every supply. You may need to make one craft just to help you know how to pack it. (For example, how much yarn will be needed to make those crazy sheep?!)

6. Some crafts require weird supplies. Sorry! If you’re looking for small jars, or lots of old CDs or some other random thing you can’t find (or can’t find for cheap), get creative! Go to thrift stores, ask your Facebook friends to look around their house, scour Craigslist. It’s ok if supplies are used, I’m all about recycling. But please do your best to keep the supplies as close to the ebook as possible. It might look like an easy switcheroo substitute to you, but maybe not to the mama who’s taking your craft home and won’t open it for two months.

7.  If you saw our party last year, you’ll know how cool it was–lots of swag, good food, a fun craft and giveaways galore! It will be well worth your time and money!

      Registration completed – just didn’t work on phone. I signed up for 3 slots : 2 sheep and 1 swaddling clothes. It didn’t register the 2 sheep but I put 2 in the notes section
