Find It! : Paper Products

Some of you may remember that I asked for your opinion on your favorite party sites at the end of the summer. Well, you sent about 100 of them. And they were all good. So I didn't quite know how to go about that, so I decided to wait. Then school started, and...well...ou know how much I've been around since then!

I WILL be featuring some of those party sites starting next week...but not in the Find it! section of my blog...I have a different way I'm going to go about that. For my first Find It! you are going to get my one of my favorite places for party paper products. In fact, I've ordered my kids last 4 parties from here!

It turns out this is great timing, but only lasts through Friday, so go now! The friends and family discount gets you 20% off your entire order!

Happy shopping! I better follow my own advice and get Avery's (and maybe Tate's?!) paper goods ordered right now! =)

Grace and other things...

I am kind of feeling like a foreigner on this seems like its been ages since I visited. As I said last week I am taking a tiny break from blogging to try to remain sane this fall. But between working on my orders and correcting papers the computer stares at me. So I am going to quick post this pic of little Grace that my friend Judy sent me.

You may remember this family birthday banner from earlier in the year. I made names for each of the kids (and as of last Friday I have a fourth name to make...congrats on baby Ethan, Judy and Rob!) that could be easily interchanged and used year after year.

Grace was the first to get to use it...

A very "green" option...gotta love that! That and a few other ideas got me to many of you have a banner I've made you in the past year and a half that you would like to swap in for store credit or for another person's banner? Leave a comment if you're interested. I am totally up for replacing names and organizing it if there is interest! Save money and the earth at the same time.

Stay tuned...I'll be back soon, I promise. Dalmatians. Circus. Woodland creatures. Flowers. Pigs. All coming soon. But for now...sleep. =)

{Happy Customers} : Collin

I got an email from a client today telling me that she will cry soon if I don't put the pics she sent me of her son's party up here. Talk about a guilt trip! Truth be told she is one of probably about 10-15 people waiting for the same thing. I am having a hard time keeping up with life right now and trying to prioritize a bit. Needless to say, my blog has suffered.

That being said, I don't need Kristen crying. So here you go, Kristen! Sorry they took so long but I'm glad you are still a {happy customer}!!

More details here!

I promise I will try to be better next week. Thanks to all my loyal supporters during this busy transition time. You are the best!

Mod for Kendall

Bridgett and I became cyber friends last year when we worked on a few birthday projects together for a mutual client's party. I ended up making her this banner for her daughter Kendall last year. Bridgett has a very distinctive super clean, mod style and I adore it. It is a little more modern than I usually do for kids' parties, which is why it was so so fun to do this year's project!

She is focusing on the colors yellow and gray and sent me these pics of the invitations she made for Kendall's second birthday...

I decided to use mostly solid colored papers to keep it super clean looking, then added the fonts that it looked like Bridgett used on the invitations and envelopes...

For the hats, Bridgett requested that the 15 guest hats would be gray and the birthday girl would be yellow. I found some geometric yellow paper to accent the hats and mixed in both fonts...

These pics actually make me go kind of batty looking at them. I took them so late and the exposure is totally off, but a girl's gotta do what a girl's gotta do in order to get them in the mail on time! Can't wait for lots of pics of the party from Bridgett next week.

In the meantime, check out Bridgett's super fun shop: Perideau Designs. Thanks Bridgett!
