Handmade Reversible Totebags

As a thank you for my friends for throwing me a shower, I decided to make reversible tote bags using pattern fabrics and natural muslin that I picked up at one of my favorite places to get my yarn and fabrics, Bobbin’s Nest. The bags came out great! I was really happy with them!

For the muslin side of the bag, I used Heat’n Bond Ultra Hold Iron-On Adhesive. It was very inexpensive and pretty easy to use.
 

Bird Themed Baby Shower

My friends were able to throw me a baby shower while I was on vacation to the NW. I had such a great time! The theme was inspired by this Tiny Prints card…

From handmade buttons and banner to delicious food… you can really tell there was a lot of love in every detail. Check the labor of love.
I truly have great friends! 

A High-Flying Baby Shower


I love the execution of this hot air balloon themed baby shower shot by
Simply Bloom Photography. The colors and elements were inspired by the baby’s future room. A lovely palette of grey, peach and seafoam. Custom invites were designed by Kate of Ruby & Willow. The host’s mother made all of the amazing looking desserts. I am in awe of those adorable hot air balloon lollipops! A simply gorgeous and unique baby shower!


A JolieJolie Baby Shower

I had the honor of throwing my partner in crime a baby shower this past weekend. Being 21 weeks pregnant myself, I quickly realized that this would not be as easy as it possible could have been but I was really determined to throw a very sweet baby shower for Rachel. So I planned, dreamed and gathered an army to execute what came out to be such a lovely baby shower.

The kite inspired baby shower wouldn’t have been made possible if it weren’t for my army of slaves (you know who you all are) and Wendy of Dozi Designs for designing everything that involved paper!

Here are the photos of that fun day!

I was able to create this with some sheer white fabric, double satin ribbon and clouds made of batting. Fun cute swirly straws, old fashion pop and tons of desserts to finished the whole table off.

Here are the desserts that I made for the table:

Creme Brulee

Cinnamon sugar donuts

Cream puffs with vanilla custard
Raspberry macarons… of courrse
Here are the adorable things that Wendy made.
Cute little kites and a kite journal for favors:

Here is the close up of the journal.

Wendy also made an adorable game booklet which had word scramble, crossword puzzle and a game where you had to identify fonts!

I had a great time putting this together and we appreciate all of you for allowing us to be creative! 2011 will be an exciting year as we both expect little ones but you all will keep us doing what we love doing!!!
