Yet, another Birthday Party
It’s summer time and birthday parties are as abundant as rain in Oregon. If my memory serves me right (keep in mind that I am breastfeeding still and can’t remember my own name some days) we’ve been to 6 birthday parties (4 kids, 2 adults) in 3 weeks (plus a bridal shower and Linc went to a Bachelor party last weekend too)! YIKES!
I also want to comment on how I am relaxing a bit and taking it easy. I’ve taken the last couple weeks off. Okay, not really off, but I’ve been working a bit less. I’ve been trying to enjoy my children and the weather. My kids are growing up so fast, work will always be there, but soon they will leave the nest and what will I be left with then? Freedom, a clean house, a smaller grocery bill, time to myself? Alright, I guess they won’t be leaving that soon, but I still want to enjoy them while I can!
With that being said, some of your orders are taking a bit of a back seat. I’ve also been blogging less too. Sorry! That’s just how it’s going to be for another month or so. So just hang in there! I’ll be back to my neurotic ways in no time!
Today was non-stop! Jackson had soccer class, we got bagel’s for lunch (I love bagel Mondays at My Favorite Muffin and Bagel Cafe), we went to Kayleigh’s Birthday Party, and lastly we had swim lessons. Man, I’m tired just typing that all out!
So, time management may not be my strong point. We’ve known about Kayleigh’s birthday for several weeks and I just finished the gift, umm. . . 10 minutes before we had to leave for the party. At least I got it done, right? Actually, I designed it last night, but didn’t paint it or cut the vinyl until today!
Kayleigh’s Mom told me that Kayleigh really loves princesses. So, I took the opportunity to design another canvas. Here is how it was suppose to look.
Due to poor time management, here is what the actual canvas ended up looking like
The color is a bit off since the lighting wasn’t so great, but I still think the canvas turned out well. What do you think? I am really enjoying these and I have another one that I am working on for myself that I will reveal soon!!!
All in all, we had a great day today! Here are a few photos from the party!
Even Emerson was having a good time crawling around. Yep, that’s right I said crawling. He’s on the move already and not slowing down!! Isn’t he cute?
Check out all the kids at the party? There was a lot of pink, sweat, and tons of fun!
Stay tuned for my post tomorrow on personalized gifts that will be great for the summer!!!

That crown turned out really good. Nice job!
I love the picture of Sarah and Ella on the slide. I guess Sarah had her birthday party too soon, you didn’t get into the canvas making until after that! I think I’m going to throw her a 1/2 birthday party, even if I only invite Skyler! 🙂
Thanks Sheri! You crack me up! Yeah, I am just getting started with them. I plan to keep on making them! They’ve been super fun! We’d love to come to Sarah’s half birthday as long as there is cake :o)
