Birthday Party Projects
By Amy Mayen
Welcome to Workroom Wednesday, where I show photos of random crap I’m working on. It’s a way to buy some time until my next post, and let you fabulous readers know I’m still kickin’. I take crappy pics & throw W.W. posts together in about 10 minutes, so if you’re here, I’m guessing you love me :)
Here are some bean bags I’m making for my nephews carnival party this Saturday. You can click my last Workroom Wednesday post to see more carnival crap I’m making. My stuff never looks as good as it does on Pinterest.
Here are some tissue paper pouf balls I’m working on. I have tutorials for these on my Party Ideas board on Pinterest.
These are mustache props for the PVC pipe photo backdrop. These are another example of my shoddy attempts at recreating cool pins.
Here’s something Mr. SewsNBows is working on for Julian’s party. I can’t show you everything yet since its not done…but it will be a ticket booth! (This is my other nephew Evan. He’s been helping his uncle build. He is so tired in this photo, but wouldn’t take a nap.)
This is hail from the tornadoes that hit here in Oklahoma. I took this photo from my back door overlooking the deck. Pardon my messy yard. I wish I could blame the tornadoes, but it already had toys and things everywhere. Who am I kidding…this is actually pretty tidy for me.
We got my daughter & nephew out of school before they got locked down. There was about 15 minutes warning. I felt the air pressure and knew we gonna get it bad about 20 minutes before it hit. We’re lucky to have been able to get to school and have our children home right before this hail came down.
I feel blessed that it didn’t hit me bad. We have no damage to our home. I feel guilty planning a birthday party, because 8 minutes away they are still finding people buried in the rubble. A husband, wife, and infant were killed at my 7 eleven; which was leveled. I’ve turned off the news for today. I can’t handle the fatality number rising by the hour. People have lost their animal family members too. I feel this tightness in my chest, especially thinking about all the children.
Sorry to get so “heavy”, but can you all just hug your babies and pets extra tight tonight? Maybe say a prayer for OKC & Moore if you can too. Thanks friends!
