The plan was that each person would bring some supplies and we'd make cards. After that, it got pretty vague. It's not like I'd ever hosted a let's-do-crafts party before in my life.
We'd need glue, sparkles, paper, pencils, scissors, paints, paint brushes, markers and of course, a potato.
I provided the potato. It was the least I could do.
We ended up with many kinds of glittery sparkly things, glue sticks, pine needles, a nifty device that magically cut perfect circles of varying sizes, and of course the potato.

We scarfed back munchies while we toiled away, giggling insecurely as we did stuff we hadn't done since childhood..
We drank copious quantities of tea -- peppermint and orange pekoe. Amy-Lynn brought some delicious, traditional German Christmas cake. Amy and Mickie brought some wonderful gluten free, fart-free (the bag said so), bean chips, and my favourite edamame hummus, while I had cleverly cut up veggies and arranged them artistically on a plate.
It was delightfully liberating, cutting, spreading, swiping, dabbing, sprinkling. Drawing designs on a piece of paper, and then sliding silver sparkles or pine needles down the page, was something I hadn't done in a very long time.
The results were varied and delightful.
