spark no 2

Spark is over again and it was more then we even imagined it would be! The ladies who came are what made it so wonderful! One of the days we put pictures of each of them in jars and they could find their picture then mix and mingle & get to know other Sparkettes.
That morning when all the jars were out it was quite moving and inspiring to see why we were there and why we planned Spark. For each of them.

We had a lot of fun decorating the main hall. You can see where the junk games banners were used now.






Blowing up balloons that are bigger than you are is quite the challenge but definitely worth it!

We were giddy watching Rhonna chalk up the outside of Noah's with her fabulous doodles!!

Needless to say, I'm so so tired. Thanks to my mom who watched the girls AND did all my laundry!!
The sweet potato in my tummy is giving me little nudges & kicks saying sit down momma. So, today I am going to do just that... after I take back some decor to the fabulous Abode & hit the grocery store & chase after Q & A. Then I will. xo
Happy Monday!

It looks like it was fabulous! Maybe next year..if there is a Spark 3. =). I think the creativity outlet would be so good for me. I am so glad you gals had a great time!

It was beyond spectacular! Thank you so much for all of the hard work you and the gals put into this...I am crazy inspired! Went to Michaels over lunch and bought canvases, mod podge, fun embellies...my mind is just spinning! And you are just as adorable in person as you are on your blog. :) Can't wait for Spark 3!

Liz, I feel so blessed to have been able to join you gals this year and become a Sparkette! It was a magical weekend and I truly should have packed tissues because I was so overcome with love, joy and overwhelming happy tears through out the day on both days! I felt so connected to all the women there and I loved making new friends! The attention to detail was so amazing and you all made us feel so special! Thanks for the experience and for letting us all know how we all are truly amazing, creative women even when there are days we don't feel it :) Hugs from Conroe, TX!

I'm still on my SPARK high! It was beyond wonderful! We noticed and appreciated all of the hard work on the details--they were small, but put together they made everything simply magical. Now I'm trying to figure out how to hang junk banners from my living room ceiling to capture the feeling at Spark. :)

My six year old, Avery, looked at the picture with the bike from the ceiling and said "how did they get rid of the gravity in that room"?
