Thanks to all who emailed or convoed me with well wishes. I am recovering from my surgery...good news is that the surgery went well, the bad news is that they found several more problems, so looks like knee surgery #5 is on the way in the future. And not just the easy kind I had yesterday. Eeeewwww. I also have the doctor's initials in permanent marker on my leg that I can't scrub off...THAT should look good with the new dress I bought for my best friend's wedding reception tomorrow! : (
Anyways, back to happy parties! This is the last of the three baby showers I've been working on the last few weeks. My friend Leah enlisted me to make some decorations for a shower she is throwing tomorrow. The baby's parents already know the baby is a girl and that they are naming her Ashley. The shower is kind of planned around the "Jungle Luv" bedding that Baby Ashley will have in her room from Babies R Us. Here is a pic that Leah sent me of the bedding:
I was a little worried that I wouldn't be able to find animals and make it girly enough, but I was wrong! I found the PERFECT paper to match the bedding. Leah wanted the banner to be able to be used at the shower, but also when the baby came home from the hospital. So here is Baby Ashley's welcome banner:
and the door sign:
Leah also couldn't find the perfect plates, napkins, and cups to match their theme, so she asked if she got some solid colored paper products if I could dress up her cups. She wanted them to be assorted so that people could tell which one was theirs...great idea! So after buying a few cups to get the right angle...voila!...here is how they look:
Kind of like wine charms, only for punch! I love when customers (or friends!) come up with new ideas. I have a couple of items in the works to add to my POLKADOT COLLECTION that people have suggested that I add. Please feel free to contact me if you have ideas for something you don't see in my shop!
