>Little Pirate Miller celebrated his 4th birthday in perfect pirate fashion! Check out some of the fun pictures that his sweet and very creative momma sent from his big day! Miller’s mom did such a great job of pulling together all the details! She even made the adorable pirate face herself! Pretty impressive! The polka dot balloons came from partyallthetimeballoon on eBay. The coordinating polka dot cupcake wrappers came from Michael’s and the polka dot wrapping paper was purchased at Target. I love how she skirted the table with it! Miller’s “Pirate Loot” was filled with gold wrapped Rolos as the perfect pirate treasure for his friends. Last, but not least, Pirate Miller’s adorable applique shirt was found at lilpinkchicken.com. Happy Birthday Miller! Coordinating banners, flat thank you notes, return address labels and all the pirate goods are also available.
>Have you thought I went on an early maternity leave?! :) WOW!!! It has been a whirlwind of orders lately and I continue to be in awe of how many new customers are finding this tiny blog of mine. Yesterday, I even received an order from someone who lives very close to where I grew up, with no connection to my Michigan family. Such a small world sometimes! :)
I have been working very hard on pumping up my collections for the little guys as I know so many are more favored toward the girls. Well, you can’t get more boyish than dump trucks! Check out the invitation for my new Construction Zone Collection and know that I’ll be working on some trains next. For the little men in your life……
>Last spring, I designed this invitation for a customer and have continued to sell it to monkey after monkey! :) Change the colors, customize the wording and you have a brand new monkey party. My most recent customer requested the following primary colors and it has been my favorite so I wanted to share.
I also found this adorable party that goes along with my monkey birthday collection just perfectly!! You can see more pictures of this “Monkey See, Monkey Do” birthday at karaspartyideas.com. Kara posts adorable pictures every day from real parties so it is a wonderful place to look for great ideas on how to use all my paper goodies. If you see something on her blog, but can’t find it here, let me know and I’m sure I can whip it up.
