crafting > packing

My parents threw a supah-fun going-away party for my sister & I before a few days before I left for California--a perfect send-off with friends old & new, yummy snacks, lots of bubbly, and a bonfire under twinkling lights. We had such a diverse group of people at their house: family friends going back years, my friends from college, my sister's friends from high school and now...it was just perfect. So much love & joy in one house! 

I was a bit under the weather in the week leading up to leaving, and I just reaaally hate packing but reaaally love making crafts, so I went a little banner-crazy for the party. I hung the pendant banner made from a map of Portland & the CALI BABY banner above the food & drinks, and then made this little sass wall in the hallway, in-between family photos. I was kind of obsessed with it, and it was fun for guests to find themselves on it! I bought a whole pack of this fun sparkly paper, so I'm sure you'll see a million more glittery crafts. The instagram prints are from Origrami, and I adore them! Pretty sure we'll be recreating the sassy wall in some shape or form in our new place...it just seems necessary. 

shout out to my parents for throwing us the party & to all our friends who came! i love you all.
