Monkeying around again...

No, I really haven't been. Its parent-teacher conference time around here, which means lots of extra nights spent getting papers and reports ready and some late nights at school talking with parents. Spring break in 4 days...whoop whoop!

Here's just a peek at a party I did a couple months ago...the same monkey theme as you've seen me do plenty of times before, but with a new color spin.


Brooks' mom Missie is a teacher, too...she's promised me some pictures after she gets done with her parent-teacher conferences. Can't wait to see them!

Teaching them to be thankful...

Now that Tate is six, I thought it was important that he wrote his own thank yous for his parties. He needs practice writing and I want him to really be appreciative for all he has. Turns out this year that wouldn't be hard, because he honestly LOVED every gift. It kind of cracked me up actually how he kept saying he got everything he wanted and that he has such an awesome family.

I did a little redesign before his party to my thank yous...I personalized them with his name and made them easy for him to fill in. It only took him two sittings to get them done, which was fairly painless!

I made similar thank yous for T's best friend's party as well, so stay tuned for those and the rest of his dino party goods later this week!

The PomLove Trade...

So as you know, I was very lucky that some of the sellers I bought things from for Avery's flower party were willing to do a trade. Kirsten of PomLove and I hit it off right away and she had the perfect event to enlist me to help with. She was throwing her sister's baby shower in February. When we first started talking all she knew was that her sister wanted pink and brown and that she was planning on using lots of poms. So we ended up going with polka dots highlighting the baby-to-be's name!

So fun working with you, Kirsten! The first of many projects together!

Back from Breck and a winner...

My husband and I went to Breckenridge this past weekend with our best friends.

It was the first time any of us had gone skiing in more than 10 years.

And I have to say...I think I'm going to be in the Olympics in 2014. =)

Okay, so maybe I wasn't that good.

But I didn't fall and it sure was fun. We laughed A LOT.

It definitely won't be 10 years before I go again!

And as for that winner...

A fellow party girl! Check Dawn's blog out here!
