Vintage Inspired Baby Shower

Hi my crafty, party throwin,  diy peeps!
If you have been wondering where I have been - you are not alone...
I have been in Glam-Ma mode! I am going to welcome a sweet granddaughter!
My daughter's due date is on Mother's Day!
I just want to say now this will be picture overload and most will be of my guests because I did not get a chance to go around taking pictures because I was being the host! Sorry! Here we go....
THIS cake I mean wow right!? My sweet niece Ashley has been making cakes for about 2 years... yes- she is that good! My daughter tagged her in a photo on IG and she was able to recreate it.
The best part - it was delish! the top layer was lemon and the bottom layer was funfetti!
Here is my sweet girl who is about to be a Mommy!

This table here was for my daughter's project life album. I am documenting her pregnancy.

Pretend you don't see the exit or fire sign here :)
My makeshift backdrop! These photo props were cut at the shower because I ran out of time!
Pop! Get it!? She's about to pop hee hee hee I have to laugh at my own jokes.

Forgive me... pink candy apples were given out as party favors and fresh pink lemonade was served.
The menu: croissant sandwiches, pinwheels, green salad and shrimp cocktail 
"Oh baby" seemed to fit because I keep thinking "oh my we are having a baby!"
These are my children minus my step daughter and my youngest. My son served as my right hand man. He ran errands and was the bartender. It's still unreal to me that my children are young adults.   
This here below is the lucky one who stole my daughter's heart.

These ladies here helped me decorate as I was still unloading my car!
My two sisters who have fed my passion for fabulous party throwing! I owe it all to them!


 It was a beautiful day! This is the inside of the hall I rented. The two ladies under the sign are also my sisters. One sister to keep me calm and the other to remind me to put on my party clothes. They say it takes a village to raise a child and they are part of my village.  

This sweet baby girl is my newest niece. We start them early! Party dresses all day erry day! 

 Gifts galore... cars seat - check, stroller - check, crib - check, baby soother -check 
we are ready for you little girl!





This last picture is one of my favorites! I can see her being a tiny baby but in reality she will be holding her own little baby soon. Everyone always talks about being a grandmother is so special. I can already feel in my heart that my love for this baby is so different. I guess that's what they meant.
I will have to report back on that later.
Thank you again for sticking around and seeing a little bit of my life.

DIY- Just Married Banner

 Hi! Happy Monday! In an effort to blog at least once a week I am bringing you some pictures of a banner I made for my wedding day. I had exactly one day to plan my wedding. My brother in law was fighting stage 4 cancer and he did not want us to be married at his bed side. He got healthy enough to come home and we were able to be married.  I found a dress and cut this banner that morning. Yes- it was all so crazy!
Thanks to my handy dandy cricut... I was able to use it to cut these letters out. I used the Mickey's Font cartridge. It turned out just like I had imagined.  
This image here was my inspiration... thank you to @deydey2014 for posting this picture of this sweet couple. I did not use their lettering but thought it was super sweet and simple. (remember I had exactly a day) 

And....... this is us. Those flowers are left over flowers from an engagement party my sweet sisters had for us. I simply took them out of the vase and tied some ribbon around them. The day after my wedding my brother in law went back into the hospital. He lost his fight with cancer. I'm not sure how my husband managed to be so happy on our wedding day when his little brother was so ill. He is so brave and as the days go on I find myself loving him even more.

Thanks for stopping by!

Valentine Crafts & Cocktails

Hi Friends! I hope everyone had a sweet Valentine's Day! 
Last weekend I hosted my 5th Valentine party for my sisters. It was very short notice and luckily I had plenty of paints in my stash! One of my sisters was going to be out of town on Valentine weekend so we had the party one week earlier. Last year you can see that here  we made cards and floral headbands. This year we opted for something easy- I chose canvas art. Here we go...   

Strawberry margaritas... for some reason I love to serve these up!

We couldn't leave out the sweets!

my sweet nieces

I styled this bart cart the morning of the party. Like I said this party was a whole week earlier than planned. That cheers canvas was still wet when I hung it! 

these masaon jars have about three coats of acrylic paint. The table cloth is plastic and I took my pen to it and just started writing - it dried in seconds! 

These girls here... 5 are my sisters and the rest are my nieces. I use to force them to come craft with me and now they get so excited for our Valentine party. They look forward to what we will do. It's tradition. We love to get together. We eat drink and craft in that order. These girls are my cheerleaders and I am so happy I have them.

 Just like that the party was over and I was exhausted! I would not of had it any other way!

Planner girls gone crazy!

Wow! I first want to apologize I know I said I was going to blog more but these planner girls have gone crazy! Oh and  I love it! I have been crazy busy customizing so many coffee mugs for them. It's been really fun. I sold out of all my black lid coffee mugs and now have a few red lids left. I knew the market needed something for these girls and I am glad they are receiving my mugs well.  

Earlier in the month I even held a mini giveaway (see below) I have gained so many new followers its all really crazy to take in. In some cases I find that I have an immediate connection to some of them. It's really weird - it's as if I knew them for a long time. What's even more crazy is they are all so nice! 

This mug here was designed by a good friend of mine that  met on IG her name is @perlaquintero
her sister owns a clothing boutique. I have also had ladies reach out to me wanting to me to sponsor giveaways on their sites. It's all sometimes a lil over whelming. If I can make it happen I participate. I am learning I have to say no sometimes as it's just me running my show.

Well ladies thanks for letting me share a little glimpse of my work. It's so funny how I look back on my blog years ago and my passion of creating cups with vinyl is still so strong.

Here is a fun fact (or weird) I love the smell of fresh vinyl lol
