Bay-Bee Shower

Time to have a baby shower.

First decision was,  theme.  Before I could decide on a theme I needed to figure out a good shower favor.   Pinterest to the rescue.    I found a great idea of giving honey as a favor.   Then I started researching ideas for a honey bee themed party.      First decision made,   Baby Bee theme.

2nd step.  Now that we have a theme, let's get busy.   I decided baby food jars would be a perfect size.   Baby food jars hold 4 oz.,  now to find jars.    My daughter and niece have little ones so they were able to give me a few but they usually make most of their baby food.   I posted on facebook what I was looking for and received a response from someone. Don't you love social media!  She had gotten them off of craigslist and was going to organize her garage.   I was welcome to them.    Found honey dippers,  little tiny bee charms and bee fabric!

Ok,  time to tie it all together.   Centerpieces and other decor.    Who ever invented Pinterest was a life saver and a genius.

Invitations

 Added some yellow and black circles for color and Bit of Honey candy for fun!


Decorated up the drink jar that contained, what else, Lemonade.

Gotta stay with the yellow and black color theme. 

 

 You've also have to have some Pollen Punch,  aka Water.



Guess how many Honey Combs.    

 One of our fun games.   Our other game was Bingo,  that was a big hit.


Goodness gracious, I almost forgot the cake.   What else

Baby Monthly Stickers

Have you heard of monthly baby stickers.   If you haven't you are missing a great idea.   Boy I wish I had these when my kids were little.

Capture the changes in your precious little one using these adorable monthly baby stickers! They grow so fast, but these stickers will help you track all the changes in your angel from those delectably chubby cheeks all the way down to those tiny, wiggly toes.

Take monthly photos using these stickers and you will have a perfect keepsake that encapsulates a year in your baby’s life. When you’re done, slap it in the baby book and voila! A charming focal point for a scrapbook page.

What you need to know:
• 3 1/3 inches in diameter, so the size of the sticker will not overwhelm the star of the photo (your cutie-pie).
• Reusable! Stick it on a white tee shirt or body suit for photos, and then wear it on something else later in the day.
• Perfect for scrapbooking! Use it as a monthly photo sticker before adding it to a page, or put it straight in the book – it’s your choice. 

Perfect as a shower gift, too!

Baseball Wedding Fun

This was such a fun wedding to decorate for.   My cousin Jana and I did the decorating.    I made the centerpieces using by vinyl cutter and embroidery machine.   The pennants were done on my embroidery machine also.    I did a quick simple applique on them, just didn't do the satin stitch.  The ring bearer pillow was so fun to make.

The bride is a huge Royals fan so the back of the pillow says "Royals, American League Champions 2014"   The groom is a huge Cardinals fan, but we won't hold that against him.

Repurposing

My daughter ask me to do a special project for her.   Little different, but it turned out fabulous.

First off,  she got this nightie for a wedding shower.  She always loved it, and wanted to make something special with it.   The lace and pleating on it is beautiful.

Here's what I started with.


Here's what we ended up with.   A beautiful Baptismal gown for my granddaughter.   She wanted a touch of green added for color.   That's my girl, always different!    I love how it turned out.

Curious George

My granddaughter is in to Curious George now so I whipped up this quick quilt.   I bought this fabric book off of ebay and then slowly accumulated matching fabric.   I knew I had all that stash for a reason.  Well I used it all and didn't have to make any new purchases.

Here's her quilt, ready for her birthday.

Ready for Easter

I gotta tell you, these Market Totes are so easy.   I've been busy making them for easter, and one for a wedding gift.   Definitely going to have these on hand.  I think they would be adorable for Wedding and Baby showers also.

The one on the far right is for our new baby.  I will add the name once she's born and the name is decided.
