Butterfly party

Allow me to show you what we did during the blizzard on Sunday. Our little one turned three. So hard to believe that three years ago she came into our lives.
She was very sure that she wanted a butterfly party. So this is what we did.

The goodie bags had butterfly stickers , a small book, marker butterfly
spinner and a star shaped crayon. These came from the amazing Stubby Pencil Studio.

We had butterflies hanging from the ceiling cut from craft paper. We decorated hats with butterfly stickers and I found these great coloring sheets from Dover puplishing that after you colour them you can hang them on a window and they look like stained class.

I got the idea for these sandwiches from a old Martha Stewart magazine. It is just wrapping paper and double sided tape! Looks great but not a lot of work.

The cake was a 4 layer red velvet cake and had candy, butterflies and a lovely " Vintage By Crystal" dollie as a cake topper.
We had a great time!

My Christmas tree in a BLOG!

Today I am so excited to tell you that our Christmas tree was featured on the Glitter and Grunge blog!
Take a look. I have had a lot of fun decorating this year. Our tree looks great . Full of vintage ornaments, bought ornaments from years past and lots of African inspired ornaments thanks to family sending them every year. I think this is the best tree we have ever had!

I have recently joined the Glitter and Grunge site. If you have time take a look at all the great work sold there.

Holiday decorating

This week I made my first ever Christmas wreath.
I am really happy with how it turned out. At first I was sure that it will decorate the dumpster , but al came together thanks to a lot of rick-rack thrifted over a the last year.

I started with a basic shape I got from the craft store. Then just ripped up pieces of fabric that I thought would look good together . Next time I will take the time to cut fabric out in stead tearing as I spent a long time making things look neater.
I used some batting to add the curve in front. Next time I will use just a basic fabric to hold these down in place and to give another layer to the wreath.
Once the glue gun was hot I pulled the fabric around the wreath fairly tight. Once the wreath
was covered in fabric I started with the rick rack. This I think really makes it!

Lastly I cut out some flowers from felted sweaters and glued those on with the fun buttons as centers.
In the back I just made a loop with bias tape and it was all done.
Al lot of fun and I love coming home!
