I have this amazing friend. You know, the kind who is pretty much good at everything and makes it all look really easy? She has a three year old and one year old twins, and while I struggled to keep up with my ONE child… she created an amazing birthday party for the three of hers. Thankfully she’s letting me share it with you!
For some reason the candy theme was difficult for me. I went through a LOT of ideas when I creating proofs for her. This one was my definite favorite, so I was super happy to hear that it was hers too!
(Yep, that’s right. It was back in March. Over 4 months ago now, and I’m just now getting a chance to blog about it. Sometimes I try to channel her energy, but then I get tired just thinking about it…. so I usually just take a nap instead.) Okay, back to the party.
This is an invitation I did last spring for a senior tea, but never had a chance to share. This is about as festive as my “Fat Tuesday” is going to get this year. I figured I would share it for those of you who find yourself in the same boat. Hope that you are having a wonderful start to your week!
This is a photo of the chalkboard in our house right now. (Please forgive its imperfections… I am new to this whole chalk thing.) Towards the end of last year I had planned on my first post of 2013 being an announcement about how excited I was to re-open my etsy shop. Here we are almost a full month into the year and I am just now posting!
The truth is, there remains a whole other part of my life that requires some attention at this moment. In an effort to break away from my usual tendency to say yes to everything and assume it will work itself out, I’m doing things differently this year. I’m saying no. I’m focusing on what I can control, and doing what is best for my little family.
I hope that all of these things fall into place sooner rather than later, and I can get back to running my little online shop. Until then, I’m working on the fun part of the business that made me want to start this in the first place… the creating. For those of you who have been asking, I am most definitely still here. Still working. Just not through Etsy at the moment.
In the mean time, If there is something that you are interested in, please feel free to contact me via email or facebook. I would LOVE to help you with your event!
One of the designs that I feature on my etsy shop is this Pennant Baby Shower invitation. Designed to celebrate one of my dear friends, she really wanted something that wasn’t too girly. She originally told me NO pink whatsoever, but being the mom of a boy I was dying to have at least some pink! Luckily we ended up being able to slip a little bit of it in there without going too over the top, and mom was still happy.
At the shower, we stayed fairly simple with the decorations, and created some name banners that matched the invitation design. Continue reading
