Rosettes are red…and blue…and…

I recently became crazed with turning all of my scrap fabric into rosettes. Then I became challenged with what to do with them. This is my most recent use: favor bag accent.

Just clipped these little cuties onto the favor bags for my daughter’s 9th birthday party and thought they worked perfectly! Once we passed the bags out, it was so fun seeing all the rosettes running around clipped to purses, in hair, onto t-shirts… fabulous!

Find rosettes here in my shop!

(The rosettes can be customized for any color scheme ! Let me know if you don’t see what you are looking for.)

Paper Airplane Party

The little man has hit party yesterday. It was a success. Here are some of the highlights!

Boarding Pass Invitation (designed by yours truly, as were all the paper goods)

Pre-made Boxed Airplane Lunches (included a sandwich, small water bottle, apple slices and pretzels, of course).

Water bottles.

Paper airplanes floated in tissue paper clouds over the dessert buffet with M&Ms, Jelly Bellys, Gumballs, Whoppers, Red Vines, Swirl Pops, Tootsie Rolls, Swedish Fish, Marshmallow Pops, Sugar Cookies, and Cupcakes.

Airplane sugar cookies made by Grandma.

Suitcase Decor (from Paper Source).

Cupcakes made with 4th of July Funfetti (blue and red). Cupcake liners from HeyYoYo (etsy).

“Baggage Claim” to collect goodie bags (filled with pilot sunglasses, wood plane kit, airplane playing cards and candy from the pinata).

And one very happy birthday boy!

Blog Share: House of Smith’s

Surfing the net can be more like getting slammed by the waves–so much coming at you at once that you feel like you’re drowning. I get sucked under the water all the time, but it’s all worth it when I come across a new site or blog that I really resonate with and enjoy. Here is one of those sites: The House of Smith’s. (I was completely lured in by the laundry room makeover.) Check it out!

ETSY Inspiration

Just recently, I connected with a dear “old” friend from the church I grew up in (thanks facebook). She has always been creative and a talented sewer so it was no surprise to me that she had her own ETSY shop. What was really inspiring to me was what got her going…

A couple of years back, after having 2 baby boys, she and her husband decided to adopt a child from S. Korea. As you know, adoption is not an inexpensive endeavor, so this friend decided to use her skills to help with the cost while still being with her little men. Thus SDK Designs was born. It has been an enormous blessing to her and her family. Though the newest member has yet to arrive, I’m still inspired by her story and God’s providence.
