My monkey and sewing!

My silly monkey! This is the face he makes when he is trying to get something that I wont let him have. lol!
He used to smile at EVERYONE when we went to the store, mall, etc. Now if someone looks at him and says "Oh how cute" Carter makes this face. It makes me laugh every time!!

I made this Camo/minky dot lovey. Some people call them taggies. This was my third one to make. Not as hard as it looks, just time consuming. Carter has one that I bought at fair on the square--probably paid wayyyy too much--but he LOVES it! He snuggles it every night. :)

I love these prints for girls! I just bought black/white damask print to go along with this set. Super cute!!

Prints for boys are hard to find. Almost everything has a little pink on it somewhere. These cowboy print burp cloths should work for any lil' cowpoke!

I like these prints a lot too. The argyle(probably didn't spell that right-but I'm in a hurry)print is cute for a boy. Ty says it's kinda girly....but what does he know. lol!

I think these make great baby shower gifts. If you are going to have spit up all over you, you may as well do in style! Let me know if you would like me to make you a set.
My prices are as follows:
1 for &7
2 for $12
3 for $15
4 for $18

I've seen these around town in little boutiques that go for $15-25 for a set of TWO! That's way too high if you ask me. :)

Our little MoNkEy is ONE!!

Our baby boy turned one!!! We really cannot believe how fast he is growing! It is such a bittersweet time. We had a big blowout for his 1st birthday know how it goes. We went all out. :) We had a monkey theme with blue/brown/green and lots of polka dots. I absolutely loved it!!

Monkey invite from Dimpleprints on Etsy....I loved it!

Mommy,Birthday Boy and Daddy

He is not going to be a sweets eater...he didn't really care for the cake.

After we finished singing Happy Birthday, Carter started clapping. So cute!

Momma's baby....or toddler. :(

I made the "It's a party" sign just incase they went to the wrong!
I was going to hang the "I am One" banner around his high chair but it was too long.

I covered some formula cans to weight the balloons down in-then I stuffed some tulle inside. Of course, it had to have a tulle ribbon! I am in love with tulle now!!

We did bubbles as favors...they were about 50 cents apeice. Once I wrapped them with tulle and made a "thanks" tag, they were good to go!

This was the favor table. Why do people forget to take favors with them?? I had a bunch left over.

I love the Happy Birthday banner. It took me a while-it was the first I've ever made. I see why people on etsy charge $40 for them.

My neighbor had a book with these cupcakes in them. I loved them and thought they would be easy to make....WRONG! Took me forever! They turned out cute though...thank goodness! I used raisins for the eyes, chocolate disks for ears and piped the mouth/nose on. YUM!

I got carter's smash cake from Cakes by Claire...she did Great!! It matched perfectly!

My friend Kimber made these DELICIOUS cookies. How cute are they?!! She is so talented!! Thanks!

I got this cookie jar thing from wal mart, wrapped in ribbon, made a sign and VOILA! MoNkEy punch!

The cake table.

I really thought everything turned out just perfect. It was just the way I've been dreaming it would be! Is that silly? Maybe it's a mom thing. Carter had such a great time playing with all the kiddos. Usually it's just the two of us, so it was nice to have a house full of people for a change.
Thanks to everyone who came!! We had a blast!
