Birthday Extravaganza

This past spring was birthday extravaganza for this little family! My son turned 1 in March and my daughter turned 3 in April! Shoo! There was a lot going on! Ha! But we had a blast! Here are a few pictures from each event, starting with Baby Girls 3rd birthday.

In my true fashion, I made her a tutu, so far its been an annual thing and she is really starting to enjoy them! You really can't see the hat, but I made it with thick pink paperstock and added a pink yarn pom pom.

My baby girl and her favorite cousin have close birthdays, so we decided to throw them a bash together...they loved it! Here's a better picture of the party hats.
This is a horrible picture, but it's the only one I have of the 20 something tissue paper flowers I made...oh well, I couldn't get them to stay hanging up anyways.

Here are the yummie cakes and cupcakes. Baby Girl wanted a Yo Gabba theme, (even though she hasn't watched the show in about a year...oh well, Baby gets what Baby wants!) so I made cupcakes then added pink marshmallows for flowers, turned out pretty cute.

More food!

One of my favortie decorations were the yarn pom pom garland I made, but this was the only picture I got! Note to sell....take A LOT more pictures! The garland is now hanging in her room, I think she could care less, but I love it!
And then the blowing out of the birthday candle! Love this little lady!

Now on to the Boy's birthday....
Here is the birthday banner I made using all colors of paperstock and printed letters. I was pretty proud of myself and I kept them to use next time...if I remember, that is always half the battle!

The general idea for the party was a Circus, so there were a ton of colors! And the Boy's cake did not miss out! I just wish I would have let it dethaw in the fridge, it was a sweatin, oh well, live and learn. So we have his smash cake on top, mini cupcakes on the other tiers and cake pops! There were a lot of goodies!

More goodies...

One of my favorites, handmade by me...PARTY HATS!
I really loved how this turned out, PLUS they made for great decortions. Here is a great tutorial on how to make your own party hat. LINK

And party baggies from the craft store that my
 husband painted mustaches on, very sweet!

A little party fun, I made a bunch of mustaches from foam and glued them to popcicle sticks, the kids loved them, well actually some of the adults too! The Boy just kept eating them, HA! Oh well...whats new!


And last but not least, the Boy supporting his manly stache!

It was a crazy spring! But oh so fun! I love planning parties, even if I stress out like 90% of the time, but the babes are totally worth it!

I made a skirt!

After seeing this tutorial on Made, I had to try it for my lil sassy butt! Its called the simple skirt and that is so true! I was able to make it while the lil ones ran amuck in the house! Ha! How's that for good parenting! Anyways, it turned out cute, the girl loves it and I can't wait to make another! See for yourself...

Beautiful, but Oh So Sassy!

An action shot, enjoying today's lovely weather.

And a behind the scenes picture of lil sassy!

Now go make one!

Sweet dreams,

Well I did it...

I finally did some crafting!! Thank goodness, I was starting to go a little stir crazy! I made a frame tray using Lemon Tree Creations tutorial which is such a super cute idea, see here. I didn't do it exactly the same, for the simple fact that I am impatient and didn't have all the materials on hand...Anyways here is my version with pictures as I went, well except for one step, I forgot to show a pic of painting the frame...oh well :)

Not too shabby, not as good as LTC, but close enough for me...

Here's a new wreath I threw together for our front door, its kind of plain, but I like it bc we have four birdies in our family now...

And two things that make me SUPER DUPER in LOVE...

Whew...i'm tired...nite nite

Isnt that a cute simple idea! And the other project is from Lemon Tree Creations...again, check it out NOW....k, my turn....SO CUTE, right?!?! It would make a great mothers day gift.
