One Fish two Fish!

I’m in charge of creating decorations for a “double 65th birthday party” for friends this coming weekend. Since both of our friends are Pisces i decided a sea-fishy theme would be just the ticket.  So i made some painted papers, cut them out into fish and starfish shapes and collaged them onto paper.  I photocopied them but oh my goodness……..i had a kajillion fish and starfish to cut out and glitter.  I don’t like repetitive tasks……What’s a girl to do?

So i enlisted the help of the grandkids of one of the Pisces birthday people! Here is Talia, Chenoa and Torren.  Some of you may recall that i tutored Talia in art for 2 years and posted our projects on my blog (a few years ago). Gathering the kids together to help me out cutting, glittering and adding ribbons to the decorations was a great idea.  We had a blast and were able to catch up on what’s been happening in each other’s lives.

We used to do all kinds of fun crafts together – here Talia and Chenoa are being creative on the beach – Talia is drawing and Chenoa is making a tie-dyed t-shirt. Talia even appeared in Rice Freeman Zachary’s book Living the Creative Life!

They are all sparkly and ready to adorn the party room!

I’ll be creating a garland with the fish and starfish to swag on the bar.  The smaller fish with the ribbons will be handed out by the girls so that the party goers can write a happy message on the backside for the Birthday couple.  We’ve hole punched the fish so that after the party the fish will be assembled and bundled together with a ring binder to be a keepsake for the couple.

There are so many opportunities to be creative every day. How can you jazz up your day with creativity?
