Did I mention I've been going to a lot of parties? Some have been birthday parties, others.....well....this one was a Mexican Fiesta themed party. Guests were asked to bring things for tacos, margaritas and also for the pinata! For the pinata? I was very excited to bring something fun to put in it. But what? I thought about shopping and finding cute little games or art supplies like colored pens or pencils.
Then I thought better. I realized I could make something really fun to add to the prizes and candy inside the pinata. I had a bunch of colored ball point pens that I hadn't been using, so I decided to make little homemade notebooks which had a little holsters for the pens. I cut paper and stapled and glued them together.
The black covers were fine, but not fun.....not yet! I looked at the clock and I only had a couple hours left until the party. I thought I'd make cute animals and cute characters on the covers. I would need to cut a few corners if I was to finish them in time. Fortunately, I found some puffy stickers and googly eyes to help me make some cute monsters and animals much quicker.
I finished perfectly on time and rushed to the party. I gave my cute homemade notebooks to my friend, the party's host and he stuffed them into the pinata which was a goofy looking yellow ducky. When the pinata was knocked to the ground and the prizes spilled out, no one took the chocolates or candy. Instead they hustled to claim my homemade notebooks. I was surprised. When I told them that I made them, one girl said, "I like you; you're a maker!" That was fun to hear. Needless to say, I had a great time at the party.
