8.4.17

I’m super excited cause I’ve gotten a lot done for the party in the last day and a half.


 

Top right: the bigger Mickey head with the red “1” will be the center with the smaller red, yellow and black heads around it.

Bottom right: I’ve been taking pictures of Jake every month and these will be hung with the numbers.

Top left: happy birthday banner

Bottom left: this “one” banner will either go on his high chair when he eats his cake, or at the actual cake table, I haven’t made up my mind yet. 🤷🏼‍♀️ 

I still have a lot to make but I feel good about what I’ve gotten done so far. It doesn’t seem like a ton, but that was a buttload of cutting and my fingers felt like they were gonna fall off. 

Yesterday was also a really good day because the boys finally got to meet their grandma.(Mando’s mom.)  The boys didn’t seem shy at all when they met her, so I’m happy that that side of the family is starting to feel a little more complete. 

I really want to go to Michael’s and buy everything else I need for the party, but I’m gonna practice some self control lol hopefully I can go sometime this weekend though so I can start making the center pieces and goodie bags. Look out for a post on Sunday or Monday! 

Easter banner. 

I’m kind of obsessed. 

I saw this idea on Pinterest and HAD to make it.

What you’ll need:

-paper (color and design is completely up to you. Also, how many sheets you need depends on the size of the bunny stencil you’ll be using.)

-bunny stencil or bunny cookie cutter(remember what I noted above. I couldn’t find a bunny stencil or cookie cutter that I liked, so my brother drew this for me. It’s medium sized I’d say, and I only got 3 bunnies per sheet and I had 5 sheets of paper.)

-small hole punch

-medium white felt balls

-zots(or glue. Something to make the felt balls stick to the paper)

-string

-scissors

-trace the bunnies onto your paper, cut them out and put them in the order you’ll string them on the string to hang.

-punch a little hole in each ear of the bunnies. (2 per bunny)

-glue the dots to the little bunny butts.

-string them on the string and hang!




I’m in love with it. The only thing I’m hoping to change is the blue and yellow. They’re the same design and right next to each other. Im hoping to get another color of the polka dot paper to add another bunny between them.

Sooo I’m ALMOST finished with the painting. 


I’m gonna take the boys to the park while it dries, when we get back I’ll peel the letter stickers off. I’m so freakin excited.

1.31.17

I went to Michael’s.

I pinned two things that I’ve been dying to do.

Here’s the first: 


Every day leading up to Valentine’s Day we put a new heart on Nathan’s door with a reason why we love him. I almost bought his Valentine’s goodie basket while I was there but I think he was on to me so I had to abandon that mission. He did pick out a Valentine’s Day craft.


I think I pinned this next one while I was still pregnant with Jake, so I think it’s safe to say that I’m so freakin excited to actually be starting on it. I can’t wait to get the boys’ little feet prints on it tomorrow.
