May Your Life Be Like A Basket...Useful...Bountiful...Beautiful...

Basketmaster's Weavings is about my passions, much of which revolves around basket weaving. I weave with reed and I love teaching others to weave. Many of the patterns and styles that I show in the blog are geared to the beginning weaver, or even the brand new weaver. If you have been thinking about wanting to learn to weave, then this blog is for you. Throughout the blog and videos I take you step by step through each and every process of weaving. I want you to be successful in weaving the very first time you try. For the intermediate and advanced weaver, my wish is that you take ideas that I show, mix them up a bit, and incorporate them into your own beautiful creations.

Happy Weaving and Baskets of Blessings to all my visitors,

Around The House--A 16th Birthday Party

This previous weekend our oldest daughter celebrated her 16th birthday with a party. I've decided these kids watch too much TV because she wanted an amazing party like some she has seen on TV. We toned her ideas down quite a bit, and I still think she had a pretty nice party. This was her first boy/girl party since she was 5 years old.
Katie having a Hawaiian themed birthday party.
22 kids on a trampoline. I thought for sure the legs on it would break, but they didn't. It was a very nice group of kids, all well mannered. What you can't see in the photo is we had 100 glow sticks in different colors and these kids made amazing pictures with them.

Katie wanted a tiered cake which I made for her. It took 6 boxes of cake mix.

There was music and room for dancing on the patio. The kids were having a great time, but we felt like we needed to turn off the music at midnight. Our poor neighbors were forewarned so no complaints about the loud commotion. Things ended at 12:30 am. Hubby and I were so ready for bed at the end of the night.
And then on Sunday....
Me and my Mother's day present. "Say Cheese!"
Have a wonderful weekend.
