Birthday Wall Decor & Crafts

Do you guys like my new header?

I’m still a birthday factory over here. I thought I’d save money by designing and printing my own invitations last week. I spent $40 on Avery blank postcards…the kind that are perforated and you use their template. Anyways, the point is, I couldn’t get anything to work on the template, and I had to get help anyways. Lesson learned.

Luckily, I found Kim from Silly Me Baby & Design. She fixed me right up! Then I asked her about designing me a simple header. I love it! (I’m not going to tell you what I paid, because I think she gave me such a super good deal because she felt sorry for me since I’m so dumb clueless.

Edson build a PVC pipe backdrop for Bella’s party. It also doubles as a photo backdrop for my blog photos! It cost him $40 to make, and he literally put it together in 5 minutes. I’ll show you in a future post!

He cut a bunch of snowflakes out of styrofoam. They will look neat hanging from the ceiling.

I’ve been working on tissue paper poms and flowers.


Here is our snowflake wall decor made from paper plates and coffee filter snowflakes.

I did a few paper fans too.

I’m excited for our party. I invited Bella’s class, so I’m pretty sure either nobody will come, or the entire school district will show up with their extended families.

Here’s another garland:

I got Krystal’s dress hemmed. I had to dust off my blind hem foot. I don’t use enough blind hems.
I hand stitched a patch onto a pair of jeans. I’m having sewing withdrawals…bad ones. I’m hoping my machines won’t be mad at me for abandoning them the last 2 weeks.

      No thanks, you can keep your weather. I had to force myself to go out & buy groceries, and it’s just chilly here. If it gets all snowy we might all starve before I leave the house! I hate weather…all of it-except hot & sunny. Swimming weather…I could handle triple digit weather every day.
