Nope, not at all. That has nothing to do with this challenge.

Sorry, that was part of a copy & paste.

Please belay my last.

I've since went back & fixed that part.

Just to share...

I received some really pretty, printed boxed Wonderland cards for Christmas.

I've since framed a couple of them, however, the rest of them, I think I will use specifically for this challenge.

Hopefully, if time allows, I'll be able to share a series of layouts inspired by my recent Wonderland Wish List finds!

Hi Ladies!



Here's 2 projects to share from yesterday.

I'm planning on printing them out and making them in ATC's. Once I have all 4 (to include Alice & The Cheshire Cat), I'll probably combine all 4 to make an even larger collage.

{The Queen Of Hearts} By KellyCali

I started my LO yesterday, and I think it's going to work. I have a thing in my head, but we'll just have to see if I can make it turn out like that.

The things in my head and the magic in my fingers don't always cooperate with each other well.

But SO far, so good. It's a long way from done, but it's a good start.

Just for sake of conversation...

Sarah & Celina, are you ladies planning on participating in this months latest challenge over at The Altered Alice?

I wasn't very good about following along with their former blog from last year. However, I am now considering following along throughout this year.

- Is it basically now month-to-month, with a due date of the middle of the month?

Thanks Ladies for any further details.

Looks like I just added yet another Wonderland project to my list!

Hi Everyone!
I know that I have missed out on participating in January - but I just now noticed this Challenge.

I'm having a fusion tea party at the end of March with some of my friends, and we are actually going to have a portion of it with Alice and the other characters of Wonderland making an appearance (I will be the Duchess!) and I will be making all kinds of fun items for the party, including "Drink Me" tags and "Eat Me" boxes.

May I join in although I'm late? Taking a cue from the White Rabbit, perhaps??
I will be going through to look at everyone's scrumptious items!!

Duchess Ren, you're in!!

Not only do we have plenty of room, but since Alice is such an extra fun subject, this Challenge is 3 months long!

Your party sounds like sooo much fun! I hope you'll share your fun plans & take lots & lots of pictures for us!

In the meantime, Welcome, Welcome!

Yay, Ren! Glad to have you join in! As the Duchess, I guess you are fashionably late! Lol! Can't wait to see what you'll share with us!

Forgot to post this photo here. It's just for sharing!

Peeking through the looking glass to see how the tea party is going.

I picked up all kinds of Valentine decorations on sale over the past two days to incorporate in our party next month.

I punched out tons of flowers and tags, and cut many boxes for party favors...my forearms are sooo sore!

I also got some playing cards at the dollar store and we're going to make card stacks for table centerpieces along with some of the other items we're using for decor.

I get excited every time I start thinking about the party!!

Have a great weekend everyone!!

Oh Duchess Ren, I want to see when you are all done!

And I think we'd also all love to hear all about it!

How very, very fun!

Ugh...soooo after spending several hours on tiny flowers for the "Drink Me", "Eat Me" tags for the tea party...the girl who is offering to book her condo complex's rec room is giving us very little lee-way with her availability for the day of the event.
She hasn't wanted to take part of any of the planning, which is just fine with me - but we switched the day to a Sunday - to accommodate her - and now she's saying she wants to go to an event earlier in the day and won't be to the complex until one hour before the scheduled time of our event.
We have lanterns to hang, skrims to set up (to create an entrance down the rabbit hole) and table decorations to set up...not to leave out boiling enough water for tea for 25-30 people!!! Within an hour???!!
Yeah, I'm a little....fussed, let's call it that...

She thinks we should have our event time moved to later in the day. But I tried to explain that Sunday events that start after 4pm have a very low attendance RSVP, and a lot of drop offs and no shows close to the actual start time.... its all so frustrating...

Luckily my husband had such a wonderful suggestion...open the event to only 25 people and have it here at our house. It will be a bit of a crunch, but he thinks we can pull it off... he's awesome!

So...I will probably upset the location hostess by telling her to cancel the rec room, but at this point I'm not as concerned about tweaking her. I just have to discuss it with the other event planners.
I've been so excited for this tea for a while now, and have already bought tons of stuff for it....

Okay...thanks for letting me vent...I'll post a pic of the flowers in a little bit for you all to see...they really are tiny, and cute!!

Ren, I hope everything works out! And I wouldn't worry about tweaking her either; she doesn't sound very nice!

So sorry to hear that Ren.

What I guess I don't really understand is, minus providing the rec area/room (that is, if it is in fact free?), what exactly does she have to do with anything?

Is she part of your circle of friends/guest list/organized group?

I really can't see how she's playing a real part, if she's not ever participating or planning anything.

Also, for the record, I'm not one for last minute changes, especially when they sound unreasonable or unnecessary!

Grr...

I say, move it & move it as soon as you can!

I don't know about you ladies, but I didn't accomplish every last thing that I wanted to this month. (I think I've been lost in Swap Land!)

Anyways, now that March is hours upon us, I need to get back on track & dedicate some time towards this Challenge, which is already very much a most favorite of mine!

I love every last entry so far & can't wait to see what else you'll dream up this coming month!

Kelly, the girl is just offering the event location and yes, its free. It was a room that was large enough to accommodate a big group of folks.

Of course, I'm being a little unrealistic to hope that we will have at least 30 people to attend, this isn't really an event for most geeks.
Its a group of young adults who all consider themselves geeks, people that are into all kinds of technology and science fiction, comic books, etc.
So I will be happy to have at least 20 participate - its just that we were really hoping to get some great decorations and elements for it - you know, go all out

So today I'm emailing her to let her know we're changing venue. I'm ordering the bottles from Oriental Trading. And I'm going to continue on with the plans we set in motion.

I am no longer concerned if she gets upset with us, and I am not going to rely on her again for the rec room for any future events.

So - other topic now...
I went to a bridal shower this past Sunday that was held at a tea house. It was sooo much fun!! Of course, I kept waiting for the Mad Hatter and the March Hare to show, but alas they did not make it. But we had a wonderful time none the less And everything was soooo yummy!! I drank about ten cups of tea!!
