I’ll be the first to admit that I prefer texting to talking on the phone. The best conversations, though, are those I have face to face.

Good conversations can happen anywhere.  Some of my favorites are sitting on a couch sipping a glass of wine, walking the neighborhood with a buddy, soaking in a hot tub drinking an adult beverage, meeting a friend at a favorite hangout enjoying an appetizer and Diet Coke, or gathering around the kitchen table while savoring a good meal.

I’ve noticed that a lot of great conversations happen around tables – a coffee table, a restaurant table, a kitchen table – and I would be remiss if I didn’t add to the list, a crafting table, which is what happened this past weekend at my house.

Although it is quite a bit of work, I absolutely love hosting card events at my house for a number of reasons.

  1. It forces me to create. As much as I love the creative outlet, sometimes life gets in the way of doing what I love. By hosting these events, it gets me motivated since I know they are counting on me to come up with projects for them to create.
  2. It is a great distraction when the rest of my week didn’t go quite as well as I would have liked.
  3. It gives me a great deal of satisfaction witnessing others get pleasure out of seeing what they can create.
  4. It is another perfect opportunity to have more of those great conversations ‘around the the table.’

I’ve already shared two of the cards in previous posts that we made this past weekend (you can see them here and here). Today I am sharing one of the other cards.
