Boy Baby Shower Stuuuuufffff....

One of my best friends had a sweet baby boy named Grayson!  Before his arrival, we had a couples shower for them.  These are a few of the things I made.  I didn't have my Cricut at the
arrived a few days later :-\

When guests signed in, we asked them to write on a diaper.  Here's what my sign said.  I have to give Brandon credit for helping me with the rhyme. :-)

More poop & pee, oh my!
2am diaper changes make
Mommy & Daddy cry!

Got a tip or something funny
for when those diapers are a little runny?
Jot it down to make them smile
now that they're going to be up awhile!

Minnie Mouse Invitations

Glitter, glitter, everywhere!!!

I had the pleasure of making these girly invitations this week.  I NEVER get to make anything that's pink or anything with GLITTER!  It was so fun and I think they turned out pretty cute!  Thanks, Heidi!  I hope you like them.

Glittery Pumpkins

I made these 5 years ago, so I don't have a better picture.  I saw Martha Stewart make them and well....mine aren't as good.  I had a hard time finding orange glitter, so that's why I made multiple colors.  Just paint some glue on mini-pumpkins from the grocery store and cover in glitter.

Mishka Mushka, Mickey Mouse!

Mason will be 2 this weekend and he loves Mickey Mouse!  Here's what I've made so far for his party.  Unfortunately, the party place doesn't allow you to hang decorations, so I won't be making much. 


Birthday parties are so much fun!  Especially when it's your 2nd one!!

Once I got the wording centered, I made these pretty quickly.  I used the Disney Cricut cartridge for the 6" Mickey Mouse head on card stock paper.  The white insert slips out and has the party information in a free Mickey font I found online.

I've yet to the make the big batch for the party. These are the practice ones.

To make these cookies, you will need:
*Double Stuf Oreos
*Mini Oreos
*Black candy writer
*Red candy writer
*Wilton red candy melts
*White confetti/sprinkles
*Wax paper
*Cookie sheet

-Use the black candy writer to "glue" the mini Oreos to the big Oreo
-Place on wax paper and freeze until the candy hardens
-Once dry, use the red candy writer to draw a line across the cookies as the top of the pants
-Melt candy chips as directed and dip cookie to the red line
-Place your "buttons"
-Place completed cookie on wax paper in the freezer until the pants harden

For the candy writers, I used the BUFF brand from Michael's.  I think the hardest part was finding ears that "fit" correctly.  I had to eat quite a few that weren't *just* right. ;) 

Fingerprint Reindeers

Did you know Christmas is only 110 days away?  Wow, time is flying!!

These cute gift tags are easy to make & add a personal touch to your gift.  I don't recall who gave me this idea.  So if you are reading this and you're saying, "HEY!  You stole my idea!!" - please tell me so I can give you credit. :)

What you need:
*Card stock paper
*Brown paint
*Red paint
*Small paint brush
*Paper plate
*Black Sharpie
*Your kids

-Cut your card stock to the preferred size
-Pour brown and red paint on paper plate
-Lightly paint your child's thumb with brown paint and press on tag
-Use a dab of red paint on the tip of your child's pinkie finger and dab on the nose
-Let dry
-Once dry, use Black Sharpie to draw antlers and eyes

If the brown paint is too thick, the reindeer head won't dry very well and it will look like a blob of poop. :)  If you are using special paper, practice on plain paper first.  I used Caden's thumbs and Mason's pinkie last year since he was too small to sit still for more than 2 seconds. 

For the paper pictured, I used silver card stock and a corner rounder to round it out.

Ta-da!  Merry Christmas!
