My nephew just recently had a baby boy! I know what you’re thinking. Shari, you are far too young to be a great auntie! To that I would say you’re too kind and totally right! So my sister (grandma) is throwing them a co-ed Barbeque baby shower. So I made these invitations for the event. I named the event A Babe-B-Q! Get it?! Ehhhhh? Clever right? I have my moments. To complete my vision I threw together a quick mood board for the party! And the list goes a little something like this…
I this is only the 4th project but to me it’s lucky no. 13th. This year my Lilly Bean is 13 and I feel so lucky to be a mom to such a great kid! She’s funny, smart, loving and beautiful. For her Birthday this year we’re taking her and some her friends to an indoor trampoline park. I couldn’t really think of a good bouncy theme invite so I just wanted to make a cool invite. I’ve always loved pop-up books and cards so I thought this would be the perfect opportunity to take a stab at a pop-up card and voilà! I added confetti and a vellum envelope so you can have a sneak peak at the party before even opening it! If you love it as much as I do, visit my store if you want to order this invite for your next party.
So 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!
Calling all campers! I know many of you will be camping this fourth of July weekend so to get you in the mood for some camping fun I thought I’d share Sophie’s recent birthday party. We invited all her little friends to a camp out in our backyard. Unfortunately it rained all day and we couldn’t camp out in the back or do a camp fire : ( So Daddy set up the tent in the basement for the girls to sleep in. I think the girls had just as much fun sleeping indoors. We ate camp food and campfire cupcakes. We gave them all their own flash lights and glow bracelets. They went to bed late and woke up at 6 am! Ahhhhhh! Needless to say we all took naps later that day. Overall the party was super fun and we sent the girls home with a goody bag full of treats and s’mores. Happy trails Campers!
