About MeLots of Fun! I love the enthusiasm at crafty parties, whether learning something new or doing something they already enjoy. Many start the party saying they are not very creative and finish it quite surprised by themselves. It is always a good atmosphere and all the crafty hens delight in their creation at the end of the session.
