The Princess Diaries Lied

Ever since I first saw The Princess Diaries years and years ago (If you haven't seen it, go do so right now), I've really wanted to fill up water balloons with paint and throw darts at them (like they do in this scene). So finally, at my turn to host monthly craft night, I decided to make it happen. So after days of planning and trial and error, it still didn't really work like I wanted it to. Either the balloons didn't fill up or the darts didn't pop them. I'm still determined to make it happen one day - I'll search high and low to find the stretchiest balloons and sharpest darts. But regardless of my Princess Diaries-induced heartbreak, it was a pretty fun craft night. We put all of our canvases on a drop cloth on my kitchen floor and just dropped paint all over the place. Some people even did some mixed media art using balloons and tape and other stuff. So now I have some cool new art for my apartment, and as always we enjoyed some great food and wine.










We discussed The Fault in Our Stars by John Green, which I LOVED. Have any of you read it? I'd love to hear what you thought about it!

    1. I really liked them all too! It was so cool to see how everyone made something totally different with the same basic materials.

  2. Tha Fault in Our Stars is a freaking masterpiece! I've been a John Green fan for years, but nothing he's written made me sob like TFIOS did XD My husband was concerned, haha.

    Also, I think it is awesome that you have such a great fun group of gals to craft with! I loved that scene in The Princess Diaries! That movie made me like NEED to live in a renovated fire station someday XD

    Have a great one!

    1. It's still my dream to live in an old firehouse! I didn't realize at the time just how improbable it would be for me to find one of those :(

      But I'm so glad you loved the book! It definitely made me sob uncontrollably, but it was such a beautiful story and had the most amazing characters.

    1. Thank you! I'm convinced that the balloons I tried to use were defective. Back to the drawing board...
