Our moose of a dog Cooper is also in surgery right now, he has an abscess in his leg that is really infected so I'm worried about him and any doggie prayers are welcome!
I've been working on little things for the party and checked one off my list today. The "Happy Birthday" banner. I didn't go super all out on this since I figure it'll be used once, I will be adding some more ribbon to it I think, and some paper pinwheels but I figured I'd give you a peak at it now and will show it off again on the wall later in the week. BTW Our carpet isn't nasty dirty, I just had awful shadows in this photo LOL
The Happy Card Encouragement Factory, if not... go now (but come back ok?). Besides having the cutest banner I've ever seen she makes adorable crafts and has awesome tips all the time. Her newest blew me away.
Apparently I've been living under a rock because I didn't even know what crinkle ribbon was, let alone that I could make my own... and thank god I saw her tutorial before I learned about the ribbon or I would have spent a fortune ordering colors instead of just making my own. Becki is my new hero this week. You can expect more posts on this in the future but I had to quickly try whipping up a yard of this as soon as it arrived, oh just look:Homemade Crinkle Ribbon
Here is a close up of one of the banner letters, I used Bazzill bling cardstock and I wish I would have bought a ton more when it was on sale at J's recently, I just adore the shimmer... of course I ran my letters though my trusty xyron and then glittered them up too.
My little one just woke up from her nap so I better go grab her, I'll be back soon with more birthday party prep projects!
