Crafting {birthday edition}

As you might have read, I have a special little birthday coming up for a very special little girl next month.  This is the first party that I’ve been able to plan it how I want since my wedding.  I’m going all out. Not really, not breaking the bank, but I’m doing what I do best – craft.  And I’m also following the same path I did with all my wedding DIY work – starting early and spacing projects out.   But I’m also adding in a bit more girl time to help with some of the projects. 

When I worked on a lot of my wedding stuff before, there were some things I couldn’t relinquish control over.  I remember spending many rainy cold winter days in our little guest house, cutting & gluing and punching away for invitations.  I spread everything out so it never seemed too daunting of a task, but being by myself got pretty lonely. 

MJ and I had planned to have a craft day last month, to work specifically (for me!) on things for Aubrey’s birthday.  So that was this past weekend and we also had an additional guest – Emily – and both ladies were helpful in knocking off some of my to do items.  It took a very short amount of time, and I’m sure they were quite happy to hear “that’s it!” as we finished the last project.  Here’s a few pics of what we all worked on.

Thank you tags – hand written by Emily, using the awesome glue pen Andrea raves about (and was in our swag bag from the Craft Cabinet!)

MJ helped make all the favor tags for the kids. I made them for all kids invited, so no rushing around last minute to complete them after the RSVPs roll in.

And because all girl days are more fun with mimosas – made the Melissa Mimosa – OJ, Champagne, and a splash of whipped cream vodka. Mmmmm!
