Aviator Baby

Airplane Baby announcement sweet nothings design Pilot birth announcementAirplane birth announcement sweet nothings designLast week I did this birth announcement for a good friend. Her hubby is a pilot and the nursery has an airplane theme. So it seemed like a perfect fit to do an aviator baby announcement for them. Check out his cute little knitted aviator cap. Is that what it’s called? Thanks Majors! It was a fun little project : )

Six and the Sweetie

Candy theme party Invitation Sweet nothings designCandy theme party Invitation Sweet nothings designLong time no post! I’ve haven’t posted in awhile and I’m playing some serious catch up in the next week. I’m still doing a project a week but haven’t posted them! Slacker! Yes I know but the good thing is that you’ll soon see all the goodies I’ve been working on!

So…my baby turned 6 at the end of May. We threw her a modest little party at home.  I just couldn’t wait until one of my girls turned sweet 16 for a candy themed party so instead I did a sweet to be 6 theme! I wrapped the invites with candy buttons and sent them on their way. It was the perfect little party invite for my sweetest girl! She’s so cute, she even got gangsta on it when she stuffed her face with cupcakes! PEACE!


Invitation party planning winter birthday party glitter blue sweet nothings design shari forsFor my 5th project I was asked to plan a party for a friend’s little girl’s birthday.

Happy New Ideas!

Project 52 sweet nothings design DIY craftsSo I’m back betches! And mama has some big plans for the new year! Of course I have all of the same resolutions as everyone else…lose weight, get healthy, wake up earlier, be kinder, volunteer, clean more, get out of debt and save money. However, I’ve decided not to declare any of those things. Instead I’ve decided to focus my energy on something that I’ve been thinking about for awhile. This year my goal is to complete 1 project per week. Hence the brilliant title Project 52! Ok it’s not brilliant but whatevs. What makes me declare such an ambitious thing? I’m so glad you asked! I have so many ideas that I don’t take the time to actually sit down and complete. Then the ideas are just left swimming around in my head, being sad and uncreated. They want to be created and I’m just the girl to do it. Also I’m tired of saying to myself I can make that! So this year I’m putting my money where my mouth is and doing it!

PS. Do you think I can count this post as project #1? HA! Fine, project #1 coming soon!

We love angry birds at our house. If you don’t know about Angry Birds you should seriously check them out! We had Gabby’s birthday party at Pump it Up and they provide the invites and paper products so there wasn’t much left for me to do creatively. Then I came across these awesome cupcakes at the crafting chicks, When I showed Gabby and she loved them! Her favorite angry bird is the black bomb bird! So I made that one specially for her! They turned out great and her party was a huge success. As much as I love throwing the kids parties and making them adorably coordinated sometimes having it somewhere is so worth the stress saver. Also enjoy this awesome real life Angry Birds Game

Sneak Peek…

Isn’t it Romantic?

sweet nothings shari fors design wedding invitation invites party thank you

Last year I designed a wedding invitation for my cousin’s wedding. They were married at the landmark center in St. Paul and wanted an invite that reflected the venue. So I designed an invite with a romantic and vintage feel. My favorite part of this invite was the wax seal. I love that you have to break it to see the rest of the invite. Although I loved the wax seal, it was no small task to produce 180 of them. Yikes! Ouch! There are places that sell glue seals that mimic wax seals, but where’s the fun in that? Thanks Michelle & Steven for the opportunity do something different and fun!
