This past weekend our Brother got married and we had the opportunity to create a dessert table for the celebration. The theme was Casual Romantic and this is what my sisters, Mashaide, Chelsea and I came up with.
I recently had the privilege of helping plan a baby shower for my niece & it was so much fun.
Her theme/style was vintage/shabby chic and it fits her personality so well. I always love the challenge of trying out a new theme for a party.
Today I'm so excited to share Firmoo with you. It's a global online optical store and they sent me a free pair of glasses to try out. Yeah hooray! I've needed new glasses for a long time and I'm excited to finally have a pair to wear.
My glasses came with a hard case, a soft glasses bag & a cleaning cloth. All are very good quality.
I was excited to shop on their website because the ordering process was fun. I was able to upload a picture of myself and try glasses on virtually. They have so many frames to choose from and it was nice to be able to try so many of them on virtually before choosing my pair. You can see their selection at www.firmoo.com.
This is the dress I made for my daughter when she got baptized & today I'm sharing the tutorial on how I made it. Be warned that this pattern is not for the faint of heart. :)
I think it would make an adorable Easter dress in pretty spring colors too.
Ice Cream Parlor Party Hats
These are the hats I made for my daughter's Ice Cream Parlor birthday party.
I made them ahead of time & the girls decorated them with all kinds of crafty things. They were each unique and cute.
Here is the tutorial for a child size soda jerk hat...
I finally got around to taking pictures of my Christmas tree.
This year my colors are orange, brown, gold & cream.
I originally had an orange ribbon on the tree, but had to replace it when I realized my tree looked like a pumpkin. :)
Love it when the tree is all lit up!
Yellow & Green Country Baby Shower
This baby shower was created for my niece with inspiration from Pinterest.
She is a country girl and her favorite colors are yellow and green.
Luckily my niece used to work at the Shatto Milk Company, so she had all these cute milk bottles for me to use in decorating.
I made cones out of brown cardstock & green vellum to hold individual servings of fries.
This is a custom fitted cover so you'll need to measure your own changing pad to get the dimensions.
You'll need to take measurements for:
-Cording to go around top edge
-1 rectangular top piece
-2 long rectangular side pieces
-2 short end pieces (trace ends of changing pad to get pattern that looks like the drawing below)
-2 side rectangular bottom pieces (to help hold the cover on)
-2 end rectangular bottom pieces (to help hold the cover on)
-Enough fabric to cover top and sides of changing pad (I bought 1 yard of minky and had some left over)
-Cording to go around top edge of changing pad
-Fabric to cover cording
-Fabric for bottom side of changing pad (I used fleece, but you could use the same fabric as the top)
