Creative Genius

Well I don't know if you can tell what this is so I will explain.  Before the party I had an ah-ha moment.  Cara, her cousin and I were shopping at target and we were looking at the headbands that I always want to buy but convince myself not to because to me they are kind of expensive.  So I had my paper roses on the brain and I have been thinking of what to do with them and then it hit me.  We walked to the health and beauty department where we found inexpensive comfortable headbands and bought them.  We went home and made paper roses and covered the headbands in pretty ribbon and here is my finished product a very pretty headband.  I think I'm going to start making these to sell them I just have to figure out where.  I was thinking etsy then I was thinking craft fairs, but I don't want to pay for a spot and then waste my weekend at a craft fair, so its still up in the air on where exactly they will be sold, but while I think about it I will start making an inventory.

The Baby shower a finished product

Well the baby shower was about a week ago now and I'm happy that its over and now I can be a little selfish with my art again.  I enjoyed creating a special day for Mommy to be Bree and future baby Lily, but it was a lot of work for me, mom, and future Aunt Cara.  Now we get to relax and wait for baby Lily's arrival.  I can't wait to meet her, spoil her and help scrapbook her life with her Aunt! The first picture that I'm sharing with you is a very preggo mommy to be with her little cousins and helper for the day, then the finished tables (I just kinda wish we made the diaper cakes a little bit bigger).  Then we have my very creative and functional wishing wells (each guest brought baby Lily a book for her library) and as you can tell we used laundry baskets (so mommy can use them to store baby Lily's toys or clothes or all the diapers she has).  Lastly you see the game gifts that my mom created for the guest to win each had a theme (from left to right are a gardening basket, movie basket, bath basket and then there is the easter kitchen basket).  The guest were impressed and walked away with a full stomach.  The food was amazing, we had everyone bring a dish (and there was some great food to be had).  I know that the party was appreciated by all present, but boy was I tried when it was finally done.
