I Have Not Sewn

in a week and having serious withdrawals, including the shakes and the feel of a monkey on my back...lol

My sister hosted a Girls-Night-Out last nite and asked me to make body care sets for the gathering.  Let me tell you, I am physically exhausted, but my mind will not let me sleep.  I spent all of Friday nite and Saturday preparing body care sets, sugar scrubs, bath salts, soap & candles. 

The GNO was Awesome, more so in that there were a mix of products to buy which included
Pleasure products: all about enhancing one's love life, Jewelry: an array of pretty bling-bling,  Body Magic: reshaping one's body, & lil ol' me Body Care: all about pampering & relaxing .  My sister worked hard, set-up was great and the food was Delicious and if I wasn't spending so much time at the food table I would've had pics to show for all the hard work. 

However, I did take pics prior to the GNO.  Honestly, it was a busy night and thinking back it was hard to take pics and demonstrate how to use the products.  Also, a big shout-out to my Guy, who helped me tremendously with packaging everything, even running to the store at the last minute because I ran out of cellophane wrap.  My poor guy had to run from store to store... how is it that all of a sudden, there was a shortage on cellophane wrap.  I became nervous because it was taking him so long to return only to find out he had went to 4 different stores before finding cellophane wrap.

The nite was a big hit and look forward to doing another one... but not right away.....lol

Here are some pics of the items:

Thank You.

It was definitely a lot of work and enjoyed it tremendously.

@ Ann's Fashion Studio: The only items I didn't make were the bath rose petals and sponges, which I used as fillers.

@ Cici: The pre-ordered sets had names embroidered on the towels and the other towels (which I failed to photograph) had aztec designs embroidered on them.

Hello Sheila,

That's a lot of beautiful works! Girls night out sounds interesting which we don't have here in Japan.
Hmmm maybe I should hold one;)
