Today's Feature Friday is Lindsey fromI guess you could call her a party girl. She has so many great ideas for party themes and invites! I am currently planning a baby shower, so I was thrilled to find all of her ideas! I bet you are dying to see them all, but let's start off with the one minute interview.
The Pleated Poppy.
The Pleated Poppy.
- What is your favorite crafting tool or secret weapon? I don't think I could live without my rotary cutter and cutting mat.
- How do you come up with ideas for your parties? I try to ask my kids what they want the theme to be, but I often give them a few suggestions to choose from. I get lots of ideas from magazines, especially from wedding related mags. So many of their great ideas can be transformed into kids' parties.
- What is your favorite summer activity with the kids? We like it easy and lazy around here. Most afternoons you can find my kids in the back yard along with: the sprinklers or hose, bikes, scooters, and sidewalk chalk. Clothing tends to be optional.
- What's on your nightstand? Phone, sewing supplies to patch my favorite jeans, a vanilla candle, a wire basket full of books - either about parenting, theology, or home schooling - none of them read through entirely, always a metal tray with a sewing project on it to do in bed. I also have a picture of my husband and I when we were still dating and a baby monitor.
Or how about this adorable Baby Buggy Shower Invite?
If I was not such and inadequate seamstress and was not doing a TON of invites (we are inviting the entire ward) I would love to do this!
I would give birth to twin girls just so I could have this shower! Ok, maybe that was a little overstated, but seriously, this Two Chicks Baby Shower is my dream!
But wait!! Another Birdie party?! Did you read my mind? This Little Birdie surprise party is so sweet. And this tree, I have to have this tree! And just wait until you see what they did with newspaper!
I know I have been little miss boy biased in the past which is why I am using this post to even up the Score. Are we even yet? How about if I throw in a Pink Party? I want a room I can just leave like this so I can go in there to recharge my Estrogen after a day with my boys.
Just one more girly item to share. Lindsey shares a fabulous tutorial on how to Fix a Dress that is a mess. See those little flowers? They are made from scraps of fabric to cover old flowers and stains. Brilliant!!Ok, I can't help myself. It is a problem. I could not do an entire post that did not have something boy in it. This Cape tutorial is just too cute! Besides, you could make them for girls or boys...so there. ;)
Great ideas Lindsey!! You are now entered in to the Hall of Fame as Tipper of the Week!
