Baking Party

Megan wanted a birthday party this year so I gave her a few choices and she picked a baking party. Ashley helped me find some ideas and the party turned out pretty fun.

We had my mom make apron's and chef hats for the girls. The apron's were really cute and the chef's hat were white. Melanie came over the day before the party and she figured out how to make flowers out of coffee filters and cup cake holders. The girls loved making them and adding them to there hats. They made pizza and each decorated a cake of there own.

For the drinks I have seen this around in a lot of different place. I got a jam jar and covered it with a ribbon and then added a flower. Really easy and very cute.

For decorations I did a cupcake/coffee filter garland. It was easy, I bought different cupcake holders, coffee filters and just put a string through it. I also used a few doilies to add something a little different. The girls thought it was pretty fun.

For the cupcake decorations I couldn't find anything except Valentines colors so that is what they got. I put them in some glass goblets and it worked great. The cakes were very interesting to say the least. Each girl had a different take on what it should look like, some used a lot of decorations and some used only a little. I was glad to send the cakes home with them, I am sure there mothers didn't feel the same.

...more Read letters

I did these Read letters for our new teacher at school...didn't want her to feel left out. I think they turned out quite cute, although they aren't near as bright as the other two sets I've done.

Project Life

I am so excited to say that I did it, I finished Project Life and it isn't three months late. I will admit I do have a few pictures to add and a little bit of writing to add about Christmas but I could close the book and call it good if I wanted to. I finished the last of the cards last night, and I am pretty proud of myself. We are going to try and do it again this year and I am hoping that we can stick with it. I will do pretty much the same format,nothing fancy and just keep up on it. Steve is going to work on it with me and his goal is to try and get me in the pictures more often, we will see if that really works, I counted and was only in the book 10 times.
