I have not blogged for a while and those of you following me on Instagram have seen why. I just had a baby a month ago and am still getting used to life with three. My little Reese is the sweetest baby and it’s hard to imagine our life before her. My boys are so in love with her and love to give her kisses and hugs all day. How could you not want to kiss those chubby cheeks! They sing to her when she cries and love to take care of her. She gets these big eyes with a terrified look on her face when she hears them near. Haha! I don’t blame her. At 2 years old, their kisses are wet and their hugs aren’t always soft. They do adore her though, and I am so happy.

I originally made all of these flowers I’ve been featuring on my blog for a piece of art to hang in Reese’s room. I love the versatility of them and hope you have enjoyed using them as well.

shower invite thank you

My sister had her first baby a few days after me. How fun is that! This is the invitation for her shower (address is fake) along with little party favors. I used the spring bouquets and blossoms with the pink dot pattern paper. You can use these designs for more party decor such as cupcake toppers, banners and more. It turned out great and we had a wonderful time celebrating.

These two little cousins are going to be the best of friends and I am so excited to see them grow up together. They are such sweet little babies and we love having them in our family.

The Fox and the Hound

I have some fun Halloween party designs new in the Silhouette online store that I’ll be showing on my blog next week, but today I had to show you my adorable little fox and hound from Halloween last year. Aren’t they just the cutest!

I struggled finding a fox and a hound costume that went together, so I decided to make my own. I am far from a seamstress so I cheated my way through it. I bought white sweats and dyed them the colors I needed (since I also couldn’t find any orange and tan sweats.) Then I cut ears, tails, tummies and spots from felt. I love felt because it doesn’t fray so I don’t need to hem anything. I used coordinating embroidery floss to sew the felt pieces to the sweats and I was done. Once I had the fabric dyed and washed, it only took about two hours to cut and sew the pieces on. So fast!

My boys would crawl away every chance they got. I finally had the brilliant idea of weighing them down with pumpkins. They couldn’t crawl out and thought the pumpkins were cool. Win!
