I recently had the honor of hosting Jocelyn's (my sister-in-law) bachelorette party. The special day started at Lady Mendl's Royal Tea, a fun tea house in NYC. After dozens of finger sandwiches, we moved a few blocks uptown to indulge in some pedicures. Our next stop was Grand Central where we hopped on a train and headed up to my house in CT for a night of pizza, cupcakes & crafts.

One of the many things Joce and I have in common is our love of crafts. In preparation for the big night, I asked her hubby-to-be to answer some questions to see just how well he knew his bride. I could not help but laugh when I read his answer to the following question: What does Joce like to collect? His answer: “She once did the knitting thing. She had a brief jaunt into felting. Now I would say she is collecting missed hours of sleep.”  How many of you can relate to that one?

Card making was our craft project of choice for the evening.  We wanted to help Joce make handmade Thank You cards. Of course, I checked CraftStylish.com for ideas. Kayte Terry’s How to Make Cards and Tags with Stripes and Dots was a source of inspiration for my shopping spree at Michael’s a few days before the big night. I must have shopped wisely, as there were a few gasps when I emptied the bags of supplies on the kitchen table.  There were punches, stamps, inks, scissors, glue, transfers and plenty (I mean, plenty) of papers.

What followed was an evening of serious crafting, cupcake baking and bonding.  Of course, we made it official with a dozen rounds of bachelorette party themed Mad Libs.

I’ve posted some photos of the evening for you to enjoy.  Have you hosted a crafty bachelorette party?

I decided to make my own thank you cards for my wedding and it was quite an undertaking. I wish i had recruited some friends to help!
