Ever Lose your Keys?

I lose my keys often...getting 3 kids loaded and unloaded as well as groceries and other stuff is quite a task. I usually lose my mind too, but just maybe a wrist-let key chain will be the answer for the key part. I know I will still lose mine, but at least this might help, while looking cute on my arm. :-) I also made these for graduation gifts. They would be good teacher gifts too. I am going to add them to the shop, but I am also going to do a GIVE AWAY. I will let you know when it is posted.

Dphoto Girls

I mentioned partnering previously and this is what I was talking about. Some great ladies and friends of mine agreed to do a fabulous photo shoot for Busybizzyb. There are so many wonderful pictures, but these are just a few. They also took pictures of my products so I can list them on etsy using much more eye catching photos. I hope to get those up soon. These gals are so talented and priced so must check them out here.

Jemma and Me

The boys

They did the cutest "sets" even with real cupcakes. This boy of mine could not wait to dig in, and of course just lick all the icing off. :-)

My beautiful neice, Scarlett. I think she has a career in modeling in her future. She was posing up a storm and loving it, and my goodness she looks so darn cute!

The girls- I love ALL the tea cups in the background. It was such a fun day!

Edible Art

We had a fabulous Easter. My mom always makes the table so pretty. Sorry my picture is blurry. I must have been shaking with excitement about all the food I was about to devour.

My sister made the most beautiful cookies. I wish I had a better picture to show you. They were fabulous, like looked like she bought them at an expensive cookie boutique, but she made them...ugh. So jealous. :-)

My sister in law made these! She is about to be a dentist so she is good and precise with her hands. Aren't they too cute to eat?

I wish I was a baker, but that is so not my talent. Good thing my family rounds me out-literally after that meal.

BIG weekend

My girl turned ONE! Perhaps that means I will get back to blogging and stop using the excuse I just had a baby. (I think that is only good for one year.) :-)
I made a one banner and a one bib for her. I decided to save my theme idea for next year and I just did a color theme: orange, lime green, and pink. It is what her sip and see was so I re-used some of those decorations.

My Mom made her these darling bloomers.

How did I get so blessed? She is such a happy girl!

I decided to just do cupcakes. I am not a baker, but I tried the gel food coloring from the craft store. I loved it! So vibrant and easy to get the right color. My piping skills need work. I made some cupcake toppers with her name and pictures. :-)

I also have exciting news about a partnership...more to come on that with some beautiful pictures to follow.

Valentine Topiary

Although I am a month behind on posting these, I assure you I did get them to the teachers on time. I made valetines topiaries out of felt circles. It was such a fun, albeit time consuming project. Super easy though and I really like the way they turned out. Cut a BUNCH of flet circles, then cut a BUNCH more...cuz you will need them. The just fold them into fourths and pin them into a styrofoam (sp??) sphere.

Silk Flower T-shirt (tutorial)

Today's Creative Blog

Who doesn't love a big flower? I do! And with spring around the corner I thought I would play around with a t-shirt for my girl. A silk flower is fabric, so why not sew it on a shirt, dress, scarf, whatever. I know you could easily make it into a removable pin, but not where a little one is concerned. I think it should wash just fine in the gentle cycle, but do not dry it! Hang to dry. Here is a tutorial if you wish to make one.

Feel free to ask any questions, because I am not very thorough at times.

and stitch the ribbon to the shirt...I forgot to say that. See not thorough. This is a project that you could actually do by hand if you do feel confident or don't have a sewing machine.

This stitch can be messy. Mine is because it will be covered by the bling you use.

That is it! Easy and boutique cuteness. After putting it on my daughter (she is almost 9 months) she tried to devour it! She can't get it off because it is sewn on, but she might be able to pull petals off or the rhinestone so I won't be leaving her in her crib in this. Hind sight says maybe make it for girls age 2 +. Or for yourself. :-)
