30th Birthday Surprise: Part II

Tuesday, August 3rd, 2010

I’m back today with a few more photos from my husband’s 3oth Birthday Surprise. Sadly I was so busy the day of the event that I wasn’t able to snap any pictures of the party but I was able to shoot some of the details afterwards. I really went all out with the decorations too so I’m bummed that I don’t have any pics to share.

To coordinate with the “meat tooth” theme, I made meat inspired buttons that people could wear as they saw fit. It was a nice ice breaker for people that didn’t know each other and a fun token from the party. We can all use a little flare now and then!

I knew that people would be dressing up, so I wanted to make sure Tula was properly accessorized . I’d seen this tutorial in Martha Stewart Weddings on how to make flowers from silk and tulle so I sewed one and attached it to a matching homemade dog collar. Tula was quite the trooper and looked perfectly adorable in her oversized corsage!

Cute as a Button!

DIY Valentine Pins

Friday, February 6th, 2009

I wanted to leave you this week with a lovely little Valentine project for the weekend ahead. Molly, over at the always charming Purl Bee, posted this simple tutorial on how to make Valentine Felt Pins. You can get the full template and directions along with more pictures here. These would be great attached to a card saying “Stuck on You!” or “I’m PIN Love with You!” Hahaha! Ok, maybe not the last one… Anyway, I can’t wait to get started on my own set. Happy weekend everyone!
