Reeling in the Big One!

I loved creating the party decorations for my friend’s son’s first birthday. Future fisherman Cale had a fishing theme birthday party. I created a fishing vest invitation. The invitation had 4 pockets, each with a cute little detail on them, a fish, the number 1 representing his age, his initials, and a bobber. Next, I made a t-shirt for Cale to wear on his big day. The shirt had the word one on it. A bobber was added in place of the O and a fish was added to the inside of the letter E. I made a matching high chair banner with the word one on canvas flags and added fabric strips to each side of the flags to add color and and fullness.  For his party decorations, I made a three layer bobber banner that read Happy Birthday Cale, a bobber photo banner to hang a picture of Cale for each month of his first year, fish garland, centerpieces that included a bobber and a fish, confetti, a cake topper, and cupcake toppers. My big surprise to my friend was a painting I made of Cale fishing in a boat. I’m terrible at painting faces so I blew up a picture of Cale’s face and glued it to the canvas and painted a scene of him fishing in a boat. Everyone loved the invitations and party decorations and got a kick out of the painting of Cale. Here are a few pictures of the party decorations.

Future Mr and Mrs

My customer asked me to make a banner for an engagement party she was throwing for a friend. She had no idea what she wanted, but it had to say Future Mr and Mrs Sheldon. She said she trust that I will make something she will like and gave me a picture of the party invite to build my creation off of. The invite was a dark blue with rose gold and light pink accents. After about 5 minutes of brainstorming design ideas, I decided to keep it simple with a little flare at the bottom of each flag. I loved the way it came out and my customer thought it was perfect. I currently sell this banner on my Etsy page $35 plus shipping.

Beer Caddy for your Daddy

FullSizeRender-11Guys are so hard to buy for and the same goes for making a gift for them. I could not think of anything to get or make for my cousin for his birthday. I thought I would just buy him a six pack and a card and call it a day. My creative mind kicked in gear and that is when I thought to personalized a beer caddy for him. The beer caddy is a great gift for birthdays, Father’s day, or even groomsmen gifts for those guys that are hard to buy for. I sell this personalized caddy for $25 plus $6 for shipping, beer is not included. Please message me if interested in purchasing a beer caddy.

Baby Tees for Mommas to Be

I love how cute these shirts came out. My neighbors announced they were in the process of adopting a baby girl. They love boating at our community lake so I knew I had to make tops for their little one with lake designs. My favorite baby tee was the Lake Conway Baby because I designed the sun graphic on the shirt. I usually use graphics available in the software I use to create my designs, but I did not like the suns that were available so I designed my own. My other friend loves going to Disney World so I made cute Minnie Mouse and Disney Princess inspired tops. I also love arrows and personalizing gifts with names so I combined the two and made cute tops with each of the babies’ name on them. Both parents loved the tops and I enjoyed making them! Tops are available to purchase for $12 each. Contact me if you are interested in purchasing personalized tops.

Flower Power

When my friend announced she was having a baby girl, I messaged her right away and said I wanted to do the decorations for her baby shower. I have been wanting to do a large paper flower backdrop and baby Ember was the perfect reason to make one. The flowers and name banner are made of cardstock and I purchased the wood vinyl backdrop off Amazon. The larger flowers were 20 inches and the smaller ones were 8 inches. I found a bunch of tutorials to make the flowers on Pinterest and they were very easy to follow. The only challenge I had was hanging all 21 flowers and a vinyl backdrop to a wall. Luckily I have a husband with tv production experience who knew how to rig a backdrop together. I had so much fun making this backdrop and the mom to be and all of her guest were blown away.
