It's party time!

There's a huge party in blogland, don't be late!!After hosting my blogland tea party back in March of last year, it's so fun to see blog parties popping up every now and then. They are tons of work as a hostess, but so much fun to bring this delightful community together. So come on in for some fun, then head here for an over-the-top explosion of creativity and color at Vanessa's
Mad Hatter Tea Party!
She really outdid herself! WOW! Since you've arrived, please come on in!
Here you become whatever you'd like. Just follow your intuition and journey to wherever your creativity leads you. Sign by Cassondra at Citrus Faire.
Welcome!!
Take a seat, enjoy the company. Doll by Raised in Cotton.
Card by PaPaYa. "Creativity is a type of learning process where the teacher and the pupil are located in the same individual."

Make sure to choose your party hat.

What color are you today?Care for a cupcake? The kids made them just for you!
Have a sip of some cool, refreshing iced tea.
Don't forget your straw! Try not to get icing on your sweet party dress...and be careful of your jewels while you dance away.

Chat with the pixies in my studio and enjoy your stay.
Don't forget to guess what's in the giant egg!
May you walk lightly...and with creative abaondon. Thanks for visiting!!!

Oooohhhh!!! I wish I had that pink party dress for my Very Merry Unbirthday Party, but I guess my Unbirthday suit will have to do. I had a wonderful time at your party. The refreshments were yummy, and I love the centerpiece with the fan!

Your little cakes look so yummy and what a pretty table you have set. Yes, I'll stay for a bit before traveling to all of the other parties. I invite you to stop by my place for party hats, baubles, and some moondancing!

Was that the Dormouse I saw whirling madly on the dance floor with your pixies? So glad you thought of iced tea. Just the thing too cool down after a twirl on the dance floor. And maybe just one more cupcake. A girl needs fuel if she's going to dance all night. Thanks!

Fete et Fleur said...

I tried leaving a comment, but I seem to be having difficulty. So here goes again. . .
I have helped myself to one of your lovely little cakes and I am sitting underneath your rose arbor. I love all the beautiful things you have shared.

I bet there's a chicken inside that egg! or maybe a cup of tea?! How about a cupcake or a dormouse? Maybe Alice is hiding in there!!?? I hope you'll stop by and visit me! This was great fun! so many Blogs! so much sugar! I think I'm going into over-load! The pixie is adorable too by the way! Maybe there's a pixie in the egg!!!??
