Well one of my good friends has all these amazing ideas, so I decided to try one out!! Im hosting a meet the baby Easter party on Easter Sunday for all the family who havent met the new baby!! Its alot Easter and a little baby...but one of the things I accomplished was this great banner! I am so proud, it turned out pretty cute and was super easy!! They have this amazingly free machine at craft warehouse that cuts out letters for you, you just pre-buy the paper. These are my letters

And here is my banner- I did glue the letters to the cut out rectangles which I might not do again, but it was a learning process and I cant wait to make one for every event!! Another thing I have up my sleeve are some cupcake paper banners!! Im really excited to try this one out and once I get it done I will post pictures!! Cutiest thing ever, just pick some great paper cupcake liners at what 1.99 a pack and string on a thin string!! I am so excited and cant wait to share!! Happy Crafting

When it pores:)

So here I am visiting the great town of wenatchee- great friends good family and two children! A two year old and a 6 week old. Never have I traveled this far ( 2 1/2 hours) by myself with them and the trip there- fantastic!! Well on the way home I was stopped by a road crew blowing up rocks- 20 minute delay- okay, so we wait the twenty minutes. We pass the flagger and of course it has been 2 hours since I fed the newborn so its time to eat she screams- we make it to the rest stop and POW its closed, so we pull over! Then in the middle of feeding my two year old yells POTTY MOMMY, POTTY MOMMY- great- I say. So I give her the option to go outside- NO WAY so I say " lets put on your sisters diaper and just this one time you can go in a diaper" NO WAY aaaaaaaaaaaa- what do I do...well, there is a fruit stand up the road! So we hop in the car, get to the fruit stand and I plead my case- YES they say, you can use the toilet!!!
okay, I think we are good to go...but of course we get behind three truckers!!!
So long story short our 2 1/2 hour trip ends up taking us almost four and we make it home to a loving husband and father and a batch of peanut butter cookies from the neighbor!
I guess there is always a rainbow at the end of a rainstorm- HUH?
