Did you attend the diamond painting party this past Saturday? Yours truly got to be there in person (it was held in Southern California), but everyone around the world was invited to be there through Facebook Live. In addition to diamond painters from all over the US, I know we had some from Australia, the UK, and Norway watching-- and probably visitors from many other countries as well!
If you missed it, you can catch the replay on the SoCal Diamond Painters page here. As of this writing, it's received 8.9K views and 2.8K comments!
So what does one do at a diamond painting party? Well, diamond paint, of course! But we also enjoyed lots of yummy snacks and drinks, ogled each others' diamond paintings and tools and storage, and chatted-- both about diamond painting and other topics. Meanwhile, hosts Renee Lee Dean and Kylie Lee kept everyone online entertained and informed, telling stories, answering questions, and raffling off diamond paintings, light pads, tools, and more. I even won a nifty custom diamond painting pen from Southforkrafts.com!
Thanks to Paint With Diamonds for sponsoring the party and Renee and Kylie for hosting it. It was a very enjoyable afternoon, and proved that while diamond painting is a great solo activity, it can be turned into a fun social event as well! Maybe we'll see other diamond painting parties start to pop up around the country-- and around the world-- after this. Renee and Kylie even brought up the idea of a diamond painting cruise!
If you missed this party, keep an eye out on the Paint With Diamonds Support Group page for announcements about the next one, which will likely take place in early November. Or plan your own!
