Like I said the other day, at one point during the book launch party, I looked around and became so overwhelmed by all the love and support that filled the studio. I was amazed and touched by how far many of you came to celebrate the release of The Refashion Handbook. Friends and family came from Portland, Walla Walla, Boise, Bend, Baker City, LaGrande and even California. I am one lucky girl!!!
Thanks to my friends Kris and Justinn for taking pictures throughout the night! I had a great time going through the pictures and reliving the evening. I hope you all enjoy this glimpse into the night.
I mean really, who wouldn’t feel loved surrounded by all these wonderful people!
Linda and Rick did a great job with the door prizes!
Connie was one happy door prize winner!
I was so honored that my friend and very special guest, Jerri Farris came all the way from California to help us celebrate! She was the “rock star” of the party. 🙂
The sewing themed cocktails and mocktails were a big hit and The Bodice Ripper was a big seller! My daughter in law, Heather, did such a nice job writing the menu. It’s a work of art in itself! Thanks, Heather!
Who wouldn’t want to hug the handsome bartenders. I’m sure hugs were their favorite tips.
Kaitlin and Brie rockin’ book sale table!
And seriously now, how many parties have you been to where you were served hors d’oeuvres by dressed up handsome high school football players in ties? Thanks guys!!!
Of course, I love all these boys. They’ve been a big part of our family since they were three years old, but my favorite dressed up high school football player is my youngest son, Cooper!!! Isn’t he handsome!
Rick and Evie’s beautiful music filled the studio throughout the evening.
John Lennon said it best when he sang: “I get by with a little help from my friends.” The night was a big success because of a lot of help from my friends! My friend Cindy made these amazing strawberries!!!
Some of the “Creative Cocktail Attire” of the evening! Lookin’ good Ruth!
My beautiful daughter Katie…
my son in law, Adam and my grandson, Conner!
I love that Dawn left the $3.00 price tag on her beautiful thrift store cocktail dress.
There was even a bit of dancin’ going on…..
I just wish it would’ve lasted all night long.
Thanks to everyone who celebrated with me!

Thank you for sharing your talent. I love following your blog and enjoy receiving your emails. I’m a quiet fan who has been too shy to share my projects that were done out of inspiration I get from your posts. Today I just couldn’t stay quiet and I wanted to congratulate you on your book. Best wishes to you and your family.
Thank you so much! I’m so happy to hear from you! It would be fun to see pictures of your projects sometime. Have a wonderful weekend!
