She is almost 5!!

Wow! Where did those 5 years go?? It is such a blur…. and not just from my tears! I cant believe how emotional I am over this! Kindergarten is almost here and so is her Birthday. I go overboard on her Birthday every year… I am to blame when she will ask for a Wedding I wont be able to afford!  What can I say I just love Birthdays! I am a Holiday girl,  Christmas is the only Holiday I don’t look forward to, weird I know, because everyone I know cant wait for Christmas! Now that it is established that her Birthday is at Pump it Up (oh well), the invitations they sent me are not going in her Scrapbook Yuck! So I made my own………Img_8661 I also made her a Birthday Hat!Img_8671 She loves this one, and I figured out why! it has a princess on it! So that’s what has been taking up some of my time, I have also been working on the mini collaboration with Kari, and am almost done to send off here is another page:Img_8673  I found a place to put the little tiny inchie square Lia challenged me to do. Hope everyone is Creating something this Wednesday! and thanks for the sweetest e-mails and comments Ive been getting from everyone, Jeez everyone in Blog land is so inspiring and kind! hugs

    lilia the shop i work in just got a delivery of cards from hallmark called vintage lace – they reminded me so much of you. you must go take a look when you are next in a newsagent or whatever shop over there that sells cards. i’m sure the usa sells these too, they are so you…… know i am loving your work. hugs.

    Very very sweet. These things are treasures.. just as she is! I too have an aversion to Christmas. I think I am too burnt out after having a retail store for 10 years and working in retail before that. Christmas is NO enjoyable in retail!! After the little came along it got a bit more exciting but I still have “the dread”.
    The hat is fabu. Is it on a base ( I have been looking for some plain ones) or did you make your own??

  9. Monica Andrade Says:

    The invites are so exquisite!! I’m so envious (in a good way) of that book, and the hat…never have seen something like that, so beautiful!

    Oh MY!!! Where to start…That birthday hat is DIVINE and just the perfect thing for an adorable 5 year old. The invitations…impeccable and so MUCH more lovely than the ones they give you a party places. I hope that the invitees will cherish them and appreciate the time you took to make them EXTRA special. The book…HEAVENLY!!! Oh what gorgeous pages. Looks just like Springtime. Love all the vintage extras. AND…may I ask…Is there any secret to sewing on crepe paper??? I really want to try this, but have visions of messing it up. Any hints you can offer would be MOST appreciated!!! LOVE YOUR BLOG!

    I have to tell you that you have been a huge inspiration to me – i have been visiting more flea markets and thrift stores searching for vintage items to use in my artwork – i am enjoying the “hunt” of it all – and saving money, using my imagination more. Everything you do is pretty.
    I check your blog daily to see what you’ve done – you are just awesome.
    keep creating we all love it!!!
    take care.

    What a gorgeous hat! The invites are beautiful, as is your daughter!
    My princess will be 5 in the Fall… it really is amazing how quickly they grow. I love the holidays and birthdays too and tend to go over-board…. but, they will only be little once, so we may as well enjoy it! ๐Ÿ™‚
