Teddy's Birthday Banner

Just a little banner I made for the party.  
I used scrapbooking paper and traced a regular Happy Birthday banner out for the letters.  
It turned out great!!

Teddy's Seussical Birthday Party

I have been searching for ideas for Teddy's first birthday since December and went back and forth between Curious George and Dr. Seuss. Since we had been reading Dr. Seuss books to him since he was in my belly, I thought it was appropriate to continue with Dr. Seuss.
I have gotten quite a few ideas from Kara's Party Ideas and Giggles Galore. I can't wait until this coming Sunday to show all of the ideas I have thrown together! It will be the best party he will never remember. But we will all have fun.

I am going to make a scrapbook of this party with photos of everyone and have them write a note inside to Teddy. More on that to come this week.

Here is what I have been up to so far.

Tissue Poms from Design Dazzle

And the Birthday Banner.
A few more tasks this week and then it's party time! YAY!

Easter Eggs

So I am a bit backlogged on my blogging, so I apologize. This was our first Easter with our son, so I thought I would go all out and decorate eggs this year.
A woman at worked was talking about tie-dying eggs, which le
d me over to a great blog Our Best Bites
So I took a trip over to the Salvation Army and picked up some ties and when to work.

Here is how they turned out.
I really liked this one!

This one was fun too.
Not sure we will attempt this one next year. But it was something really fun to try!

Recyclable Carton Wallet

For Earth Day in March, my son's daycare sent home a paper requesting that you send your child in with a craft made from recycled materials. Well, what can a 10 month old really create except a caterpillar out of an egg carton, and that would even have been a stretch.
So, me being the overachiever that I am, created this wallet for him to share with the class. I googled recycled crafts, and found this one.
Needless to say everyone was super impressed, as was I!!
