birthday party re-cap

Sorry I'm late on this, but I was sick Sunday and Monday...feeling better now!

Logan's (my nephew) 2nd birthday party went well! He was soooo cute and had a ton of fun!!

the only picture the birthday boy and I took together

one of his birthday gifts from me - step stool i made him
i bought an unfinished stool at Michael's and painted it, and hot glued these little wooden figures on the sides - Easy!

he got a ton of new toys! here he is playing with his new car.
cake topper i made. i bought this dino from Michael's and painted him up and hot glued tooth pics to the back of his legs so he would stand up in the cake.
mmm funfetti cake!

i need to work on my cake writing skills!
favor bags i made for the guests. i got plain little white paper bags, again from Michael's (love that place!!), and filled them with candy. I folded down the tops of the bags and folded the little green strips of paper over them then ran them through the sewing machine. i found these little dinosaur stickers on clearance for 47¢!

I sewed this birthday banner ... haha it was my first time trying to do seams...they are a bit uneven but i think it turned out cute! i just made little pockets to run the wooden dowels through and tied a ribbon to them. i think i'm going to trim it up and make it a pillow case for him to keep.

playing with one of his new toys! the "2" t-shirt i made him to wear!
he is such a sports lover! i see lots of summers at the ball park in our future!

You have such great ideas! I'm heading to my parents house for the weekend and I'm thinking about getting my mom to teach me how to sew. You've inspired me!

Have you taken any classes at Dee's (in L-ville)?

We recently had my sons birthday party and decided to have a clown for entertainment. I was skeptical as to how it would go over but it turned out to be a huge success.
