Holly's RockStar Baby Shower

Theme: Rockstar Baby
We had so much fun planning this shower for my sister Holly. She's about ready to pop! 80)
1. We got some old vinyl records from the DI and covered the label, front and back with fun paper and hung them from the ceiling and used them as part of the center pieces.
2. This what the dessert table looked like. The items in the blue margarita glasses were some of the mom-to-be's cravings.
3. For the Centerpieces and Favors we found star shaped candle holders at the dollar store and filled them with rocks. Then we put or favors( Rock Candy Stick we bought online) at each point of the star.
4. I made this little tin for the parents to be to write little sweet moments they have with their child so they can share them later. Also the guests wrote some tips and put them inside as well.
5. We hung tissue paper pom poms all over the room.
6. Gotta love the banner!
7. My SIL Kaylee made this fab cake. She did a great job! Thanks Kaylee!
I made some fun onsies some done with a freezer paper stencil and some I put fabric ties on them. I also did my standard but fab wipes case.

Some of the other guest did great handmade gifts as well so here's my shout out to them.
1 & 2. My Grandma Cobb did these neat little blocks and a cute blanket.
3. My Aunt Mindy crochet these darling little booties and a matching hat. I love love love them! So fab Min!
4. My sister's SIL and best friend Sara made a super cute diaper cake. I love the diapers, they have polka dots on them (bought at Target).

And last but most certainly not least. My mom is Whiz at quilts she designed and made this fab Guitar quilt because baby's room is kinda a rock and roll style. Mom you worked so hard on this quilt and it turn out AMAZING!
Well I hope you all enjoyed. Stay tuned for my next post. I have been going crazy making cute flowers and ribbon bows. I hope to start selling them soon. So more info to come on that! 80)
Have Fun

I know right.....
That's how long it's been since I blogged!!! I bet you thought something tragic happened to me lately huh? Nope sorry I've just been in a craft slump. I know right it doesn't seem possible but it happened. I've been crafting just not blogging about it, so to catch y'all up on what's been goin' down, here it is....
1- I learned how to knit and crochet...I've been a little obsessed lately with the knitting looms and have made my share of hats and baby leg warmers. (yes i know i cheated a tiny bit! SHHHH)
2- I have been spending a alot of time with photography and my digital designs.
3- I always forget to take a picture of it and therefore it feels like all is lost. 80( As most of my crafting also goes out to others as gifts.
Well those are the top 3 reasons I've been M.I.A. thank you for still keeping the faith in me though and If I've lost you please come back. 80)

Now on to some of my favorite Crafting trends showing for spring...Yea!!!
1. Zippers, Zippers,Zippers

2. Ruffles, Ruffles, Ruffles

3. Re purpose, Renew, ReFABulous

I have so many other trends that are popping up that I am in LOVE LOVE LOVE with and i can tell I've already overwhelmed you crafty brain. So stay tuned often to see what other obsessions I develop! 80) Have Fun

Tree Inspiration

Here are some Christmas Trees ( some famous some not) to inspire you (or me rather) to put it up and make it beautiful! Have fun. The first tree if you haven't figured it out is in NY,NY @ the Rockefeller Center.

In the MGM Grand Hotel in Las Vegas. But I don't think this is the main tree seem to small to be a centerpiece tree for the largest hotel in the U.S.

I love the backwards thinking this induces! LOL 80)

A beautiful classic!

Christmas tree at Bankers Hall shopping atrium City of Calgary Alberta Canada. I love the HUGE bows of Holly berries with gold leaves. 80)
Lets get stared...Bring on the Christmas!!! 80)

Thanksgiving Place Cards

In my family we've always had a Thanksgiving tradition, the night before thanksgiving all the women (only one boy was allowed and that was my grampa because he is bangarang at making pies especially in bulk) get together to make yummy pies of every kind and make fun place cards for the table. (Then when we set the place cards out it was almost certain someone would come along and switch where they were sitting.) My mom always did a really good job at keeping it different each year. So to pass along the tradition of place cards here are a few ideas I drummed up from web surfing.
I love the Fabric leaves above a nice simple but beautiful touch.

Great little Pilgrims hat that you can fill with anything. Popcorn, M&M, Nuts, Cranberries or my mom's nut mix she always used and is a big hit in our family- Honey roasted peanuts, Small butter mints, and Candied corn.

This place card was made out of recycled paper. I love the design and the feathers and the kiddos can help with it!

These look scrumptious and serve at an appetizer too. What a fun little turkey to have on the table. Made out of 2 oreos, a mini reese peanut butter cup, a whopper for the head, candied corn for the feathers and nose, and don't forget the decorators frosting for the eyes and legs. 80)

For the sophisticated table a small vase of Reese's pieces topped of with a bundle of raffia to look like Indian corn too cute.

Last but not least why not tie it into your meal with this fun little turkey head on a skewer poked into a roll that looks like turkey feet. Very fun.
Hope everyone has a very "FULL"FILLING Thanksgiving. 80)
