Happy 1st Birthday Carter

I have seen this little girl grow up so fast…She has a big hearted family that loves her so much and we only want what is best for her. Her Aunt Michele with her kids put together Carter’s first birthday party. And invited us to her home. They had the whole house decorated with pink and purple streamers, butterflies all around, and had a lovely table/high chair decorated.

I wanted to make sure I had a “Turning One” picture so I had Max, Carter’s Uncle & my husband, to help me set up a photoshoot. I made paper banners, and cutout butterflies for the backdrop. And since I wasn’t sure what she would be wearing I quickly made a tutu with butterflies gems and cutout a paper crown for her to wear.

It definitely took everyone to get her to sit-still and look pretty. Thank you for sharing this moment with us. Take a look at at Flickr for more process pictures.

Working on Valentines Gifts

Starting on my valentines gift…
I’m creating mini hearts and unicorns piñatas for the little ones. Stuffing them with stickers, toys, pin buttons and more. The heart piñatas have two openings 1) that can be broken in half or 2) the right corner lid opening.

I’ve also been making cupcake toppers:

  1. Lay the paper down on its decorative side, 2″x7”
  2. Fold accordion style:
    getdocument-aspx
  3. Glue each end to each other to create a circular fan.
  4. Punch a heart and glue in the center.

Happy Holidays

This year I did lot of handmade projects for family and friends: stockings stuffer, baggies, screen print pillows, and more.  I also did lot of photo project to create a more personal gift: blanket, mugs, and magnets.

Happy Fourth of July

img_9293Fourth of July in a box… Independence Day is one of Max’s favorite holiday, and trying to ship a care package was a little more challenging since I couldn’t ship fireworks. There are many great substitution for kids and not much for adults. I needed to create a BIG SPARK…

Made Confetti Poppers: I used tissue paper, confetti star cutouts, a balloon, and cardboard to create a tube. After creating a tube (cardboard & tape), add a balloon on one of the tube opening. Tape the balloon or glue so it doesn’t come off when pulling it. Add confetti paper inside and seal with tissue paper (image below). Make sure you make a cut on the side of the tissue paper ( not on the balloon) so the confetti paper can come out.

Also made mini star pinatas to go in the box. Fill them with candy and/or surprise toys. These make the perfect party decorations. I added some glow sticks, caramel popcorn, and other fourth of July funsies to ship to the North Pole.

Birthday Overload of Cutenss

img_7925I am so happy to be able to be part of the customers’ special day. I do enjoy making these mini pinatas (and other party supplies) and love to hear their stories. When I don’t know the story I like to imagine what they are for… and what kind of party or type of person. I had someone order two pink whales and my mind thought “oooh twin’s party or baby shower.”  Love Love it!

I remember making these with my mom when I was younger. I remember putting my tiny hands in her home-made glue in this cooking pot and slapping it on the balloon. I never thought of the process until now. I can see why she did the things she did. Home-made glue is lot easier than Elmer glue (which is what I use). I cherish these making pinata memories and happy to be able to share one of my families traditions.

MegaMan Party

DSC_0009My nephew turn 10 this year and he requested a Megaman party. I still remember this little boy had a pig party, couple years back, and now we are doing video game characters. AND the next thing you know he wont want a birthday party- he’ll out grow that too. But for now we continue the birthday party at home and included his stuff-animals as part of the party.

PARTY SUPPLIES
1) I created Megaman & Megaman Zero helmets as party hats (available to print: RED, BLUE), by photoshop-ing out the characters faces.  Then creating two holes for on each side of the hat. Push the ribbon through each hole and tie a knot to hold it.

2) Baggie Suffers: cutout megaman coloring pages by outlining Megaman silhouette (don’t forget to add crayons), healthy snacks, toys, and bubbles. I stuff the items into a small lunch bag for the kids.

3) Custom cake/cupcake toppers: I used the Megaman character’s logo to create the cake topper. I added more wording to make it more personal. Then I cutout little red and blue helmets for the cupcakes. And with the extra paper material I created star confetti to decorate the table.

I added little details of the Megaman character around the birthday party. More pictures below:

A Celebration of Love

The last day in February, thankfully it’s a leap year, add an extra day to the end of February every four years, which happens to be today. This morning, I got a great reminder of love, “ Thank you for leaping with me on this leap year,” which got me reading about Leap Year.  I read that traditionally women are allowed to propose to their “fella” on leap year and that’s because the opportunity won’t happen again for another four years. Funny, Max mentioned that he read that guys are encourage to propose on leap day because of the same reason – you only have to celebrate it every 4 years. The short explanation that I got is lunisolar calendar.

After that fun face, I decided I would share my celebration of love:

IMG_5447   IMG_5410

    • For Valentines, I got a lovely handmade card from my love ones (Max & Jax). Max included our puppy Jax to show that our love is limitless with a map as the background. We celebrated with a nice dinner & cake (picture above)
    • On craft night we made valentines cards, but I couldn’t decide what to do, so I made couple of cards with Avocado Art Clear Stamps, washi tape, sticker hearts, and some ribbons. Then decided to stick with the animal cutouts as the card and use some of the stamps to create the jar.
    • After I was done with cutting 20 animals, 20 jars, 20 hearts, I put them in a basket to work and shared them at my meeting. The staff were so in love with my cards that they took more than one (after the meeting) which I had to go home and make some more to mail. Note to self: add names to the cards next time.

  Card 1   Card 2

To make the huggable cards, just make sure your animal has long arms in order to fold across. I added a upside-down heart as their tummy. I used Avocado Art Jar stamp to create the jar then I taped the sides to create a pocket. Added a chocolate or pencil through the jar.
