Birthday party cont'd

I had told you a few post backs that I'm already getting started on my little man's 1st birthday party! The invitations have just gotten sent out and I thought I would share how they turned out.
I ended up creating a leaf sticker to address the envelops with. Then stuffed them with a leaf invitation and a little hungry caterpillar. I love the way these have turned out. I hope our family and friends enjoy it as well!

Crafting Christmas style!

My absolute favorite holiday is Christmas! Ever since I can remember it has been such a magical time of year. I want to make sure that my son feels that as well. This year I am working on kid friendly tree ornaments to trim our tree with. I came up with this concept...

What do you think?

Oh and the embroidery patterns are from Wild Olive. Aren't they the cutest?

Another fabulous class

Last night we had our second to last class. Everyone started on their free choice project and we got NEW sewing machines to use from the county. A very productive night to say the least. We have to be very busy bees next week so we can have all finished projects! So bring your game faces one, hahaha.
Thanks for another great night guys :)

Wreaths in progress

I have been seeing lots of burlap wreaths in the Internet world. I now have two doors to decorate for, so I thought these looked pretty and easy. Sure enough these are the easiest wreaths to make. I might have to create a short tutorial. I did them both in about an hour. Now I just have to figure out what I want to put on them for the accents. Any suggestions?

Halloween is creeping in

Today I got into the Halloween spirit. I started to decorate a little. Still a few more things I want to add, but at least it's looking more like October inside!

The Very Hungry Caterpillar

My little guy is 11 months today! This means I have to start prepping for his very first birthday party. I decided to go with the theme of The Very Hungry Caterpillar since I am a huge fan of Eric Carle.
Of course I start me search online and low and behold pottery barn kids has done a whole little set up on it already. So naturally I'm doing everything they suggest, haha. I started working on the invites today. It's going to end up being a leaf with chew marks that holds all the pertinent info and a little caterpillar snuck inside the envelope. I thought it was too cute!
I still have to print the leaves of information but the caterpillars are all set.
Can't believe my little man is so grown up!

Another great class!

With 2 classes lefts, students are on a roll. Everyone will be working on their free choice projects. I'm excited to see what everyone chooses.
I actually remembered to take a few pictures too!
