A Great Surprise

I came home to such a great surprise today! My GF Brenda sent me some happy mail for my birthday. I was so surprised! Look at the goodies she sent...unreal! I absolutely LOVE it all! I will definitely make use of everything! Thank you so much Brenda! You are just the sweetest person and I am so lucky to have you as my friend!

Baby Shower

Today was the baby shower my DH and I were planning for my SIL, her DH, and their DD. My SIL actually started feeling contractions from last month. Then last week she had some contractions that were so bad that she thought she was in labor! Luckily it wasn't the "real thing" and she was able to hold the baby in long enough to make it to the shower. :-) hehe!

Anyways, these are some of the things I made for the shower. I made a card and gift tag to go on the gifts we gave them. And then the pillow boxes are the favors I made. I posted a picture of the invites I made earlier. All in all it turned out to be a nice family shower! Hopefully we were able to help them get stocked up on some of the baby necessities they'll need!

I hope you had a nice weekend!

Birthday Party Invitations

These are the invitations I made a few weeks ago for by DD's 4th birthday party that's coming up at the end of this month. She chose her party theme this year and I was so happy that she chose (WITHOUT any persuasion from me what so ever) Hello Kitty...since I love HK too!! ;-) I decided to make these pocket card invites since they come together so quickly...and they matched the M&M's favors that I had already started putting together (see below). :-)I hope you had a great weekend!! It went by way too fast for me! :-(

A Quick Card for my Niece

On Sunday, my family & I headed to Hawaii Kai for a pool party at my MIL's house. Our niece turned 4 that day (exactly 3 weeks before my DD) and luckily it was a long weekend so we didn't have to rush home to get ready for work and school the next day. We actually got to my MIL's house around 10:30 a.m. and ended up staying there until around 7:30 p.m.!! It was so nice just hanging out and talking with my SIL & her DH that we completely lost track of time!! They're expecting baby #2 in about a month and so we had to take advantage of their"leisurely" time now!! hehehe :-)

Anyways, this is the quick card that I put together for our niece. It was a nice, relaxing day and the kids had a blast!! Our, by then, very grouchy DD knocked out within the first 5 minutes of our drive home...ah, wishes really do come true sometimes!! :-)

Simple Birthday Card

My family and I had a pretty fun Labor Day weekend. Our daughter started her first Tiny Tots class on Saturday and then we had a birthday party to go to right afterwards. This is the card I made for that party. The party was actually for one of the girls that was in my son's preschool class last school year. A handful of us moms had been getting together for dinners during the school year and we were so sad when the kids graduated from preschool this year. This was the first time we all got together since the kids all went their separate ways to start kindergarten. It was so fun seeing how excited all of the kids got when they were all together...and it was nice catching up with the other moms and finding out how kindergarten has been for them at their new schools. It's amazing how fast time flies by...especially when you have kids!!!

Hoping you had a fun weekend too!! :-)

A Ketto Birthday Card

Here's a quick card I made for my cousin who recently turned 21....ah, to be 21 again! Anyways, I've been wanting to use this stamp for a while now but kept forgetting I had it. Since my cousin is into Asian things, and I had just gone through my stamps, I was able to use it for her card (yippee)! I had to kind of throw this one together because I was trying to get it to her before she left to move in to her dorm...and I had once again lost track of my days (ugh)!

I hope you are getting ready for the long weekend...I know I am!! :-)

Birthday Shaker Card

Here's the birthday card I made for my MIL recently. I so suck at making shakers but I knew my MIL would appreciate my effort. I definitely need more practice making these. This card took me way too long to make and I almost scrapped it all together but in the end, I was able to salvage it! Joy (aka the shaker queen), you are my idol!! :-)
