Muse Party Blogfest: Anti-Valentine Edition

v-day muse party

The Muse Party Blogfest is brought to you by Sarah and Jordan @ The Faux Fountain Pen in honor of their musiversary. You can read all about it here

1. Who did you bring to the party? Is he/she your Valentine or anti-Valentine?

*Lori and Evelyn enter the party*
Hello everyone, I would like to introduce you all to my muse, Evelyn. She just happened to be in town and forced asked me to bring her. You could say she is my anti-Valentine…
*Evelyn burst free into the room*
Hello, hello! It’s time to get this party started! Where’s the wine? the champagne? No need for party favors as I am here!

2. Which one of you is the more romantic person?

Not her! There isn’t a romantic bone in her body… now as for me… I…
Oh do shut up Evelyn!
Touchy touchy, dear. Just admit it, you hate all things romantic, especially Valentine’s Day!
Of course I hate it! Flowers, chocolates, romantic gestures. Bleh!

3. What gift are you giving to your (anti) Valentine?

Gifts? Why should I give her any gifts! She’s barely around… always running off somewhere exotic…
I brought you a great story idea! The least you could do is give me something back in return…
One story idea in how long? a year at least? I should have brought Catharine.
*Evelyn rolls her eyes*
Here… *Lori hands Evelyn a small box*
*Evelyn opens it and squeals with excitement*
What a lovely brooch! *looks down at her chest* sorry, love.. no where to put it. Can you hold on to it for me? *hands it back to me*

4. Are you guys wearing red or pink (or black…)? 

Lori’s Dress:


Evelyn’s Dress:


5. Did you bring any Valentine’s Day treats? 

oh yes! We whipped these up in the kitchen.
We? don’t look at me. I don’t cook, not with these nails!
Oh just give Sarah the treats!
*Evelyn hands over a couple of platters*


6. Name a song for our Love Playlist or Anti-Love Playlist (or both)! 

*Evelyn takes out a small disc and hands it over to the DJ*
Don’t look at me, Lori made me bring it!

7. Got a great anti/Valentine party game? 

How about we twist Evelyn into a pretzel?
It was just a suggestion, my dear.

8. Feeling the love or just feeling nauseous? How will you have fun at the party?

*Evelyn dances around the room, singing, drinking champagne, eating chocolate-covered strawberries*
*Lori stands to the side, glaring at her muse*
Having a blast… really, I am.
Oh let loose for once, will ya?
*Lori sighs and stuffs a bon-bon in her mouth*

9. Has your muse been a good Valentine? 

of course I have *blows kisses at Lori*
Catharine would have been more my style.
Catharine is a bore! Just like you… and you wonder why I am always in Hawaii!

*Jordan’s Bonus Question (feel free to ignore him…): Did you bring me & Sarah a musiversary gift? (Because we’ve put up with each other for five years and I think we deserve something.)

I found this in an adorable shop… thought you might like it


They would have preferred a new laptop or maybe new printer
Shut up, Evelyn… *I* don’t even have a new laptop or printer
Suit yourself… it’s a lame gift…
Catharine would have approved…
Oh good lord… Catharine again! *storms off*

Thank you, Sarah and Jordan… lovely party, but I need to get miss Sassy Pants home. Had an okay lovely time! Cheers everyone!

  2. “You’re both looking quite well in those outfits. Put your names in for the ‘best dressed’ contest,” my muse suggests, somehow managing to eat chocolate dipped strawberries without dripping juice or dropping chocolate crumbs or getting anything on his face. I somehow manage to do ALL of these things, but I love them anyway. Thanks, guys! 😀

  3. Miss Sassy Pants is a hoot! I’ll enjoy watching from afar. 🙂
    Great post!

  4. Evelyn sounds like a handful. Fun, but def. high maintenance. That was a gorgeous broach you gave her, too.

  5. Evelyn sounds like fun! I love both your outfits!

  6. Very cool outfits! *munches on some bon bons*

  7. M.J. Fifield says:

    I love Evelyn’s dress, too. Her personality’s great, too! What a great character!

  8. Your muse is fun. I think she’d get alone with the one half of the two I brought to the party.

    • Lori Carlson says:

      Thanks, Patricia 🙂 She is great fun, when she is around.. oh she spotted quite a few other muses she was interested in… I am sure they are all off having a party of their own now *laughs*

  9. Chrys Fey says:

    I love Evelyn. She’s…hot. lol And has definitely heated up the party. I think she wins the Best Dress award. 🙂

  10. sarahannefoster says:

    Those treats look yummy! And I LOVE Evelyn’s dress. I’m sure I’ll never have a good reason to wear something like that, but still.
    Thanks for coming to my party!
