1st Birthday details

Hey Friends, I hope that you are enjoying your summer, mine has been full, as a Mom I am doing my best to achieve balance. There is a lot of work that needs to be done around here, from the daily tasks of cooking and cleaning, to the progress of the new house. I always have to remind myself to be in the moment, take time for fun and slow down. So for my daughters birthday, I went all out in the creation department and enjoyed every moment.

 I sewed her this lovely yellow dress and made the matching hair band

I blew up 60 balloons and strung them up with 300 lights ripped up three bedsheets in

I sewed a cute country banner and created bumble bee water labels

I made Bee hive table labels, made with Core'dinations

and baked a bee hive cake.

My daughter may never remember her first birthday, but I will. It was a wonderful family affair and I am glad I took time out from the hustle and bustle to pull it together. Now back to the grindstone, literally, this week we are moving HUGE rocks for landscaping. I will share that later.




  1. This is so ridiculously darling. With Emmaline's 1st birthday party on Saturday, I am feeling the unfortunate need to tone down my crafty ideas for lack of time! :) I am sure you had to do the same.

    TOOOOO funny though that we both sewed the SAME dress for our girls! Check mine out here: http://courtscrafts.blogspot.com/2013/07/may-arts-finalist-post-and-projects.html

    haha! HAPPY BIRTHDAY PIPER (a few days late!) What a doll. I cannot wait to get our girls together!

  2. Wow girl!!!
