BIG Update…lots of photos!!

Well hello, it’s been a long while since I’ve given an update. So let me go ahead and appologize for letting my life be in the way of my blogging. I so love to blog and share, but sometimes, life just gets in the way.

I’ve been super busy sewing and crafting lately. The most recent project is a glider rocker and ottoman that I made removable covers for. It’s so pretty, the fabric that was chosen is very fun and bright, it’s for a nursery. Haha, obviously they are having a girl. 😉

This project came at the perfect time, I was actually in the process of recovering my glider and ottoman too. Although, I’ve just covered my ottoman, still working on the chair.

Before…

…after!!

The chair will also be covered in the same fabric. It’s really been something I’ve been wanting to do for awhile, I just finally have gotten time to do it. Let me tell ya though, having removable covers, such a huge blessing. This way I can wash them instead of have them reupholstered. Even the ottoman, I just added elastic to the bottom of it for easy removal. Sorry don’t have a pic of that yet,  Those pics will come when I’m finished.

Ok, so the next thing I was working on was for my sister-in-law. I helped throw a baby shower for her a little over a month ago and went crazy making blankets for the baby!!! Unfortunately, I don’t have pics for those at the moment. Currently, I am blogging on my phone and it’s late at night, and well, I don’t feel like rolling out of bed and turning my computer on to finish this blog to add the pictures. 😁 no worries, I’ll be posting those pictures too on my next blog.

Ok, last but not least, we just finished giving my daughter a big “My Little Pony” themed 5th birthday party!! Yes she is 5 now!!! My little girl is not so little anymore. She’s growing so fast, sheesh, where does the time go. Anyway, I had so much fun planning and prepping for this party. Of corse I made some decorations and, not to brag, but I made her the coolest rainbow cake ever!!! Seriously, I honestly didn’t think it was going to come out this good. I’m more proud of this cake then anything I’ve ever sewn/crafted!

Also, I’m sure you’ve noticed from her precious birthday parties I’ve blogged about, her parties are usually costume parties. Well, this time she wanted to be one of the characters named Rainbow Dash. Well, that character is a Pegasus. So, naturally a Pegasus needs wings right…well wings she got. They were so fun to make, I made them out of felt and sturdy interfacing. I can’t think of what the interfacing is called right now, but it’s used for dividers in purses and what not, as a stabilizer.

Well, that’s all I have for now, it’s late, and I’m finally getting tired. I hope you enjoyed the pictures, I’ll be posting in the next couple days to share more with you . Have a good night, well morning now. 😉

A Frozen Birthday Bash!!

So after much preparing, baking cupcakes and cake, sewing, searching on pintrest, and crafting, my daughter’s 4th “Frozen themed” birthday party is over and was a success!!! As you know, a friend of a friend, lol, played the character “Queen Elsa” from the Disney movie Frozen. I made her costume, styled her wig, and made the snowflake pins for the wig, in which I blogged about previously. Well, I have to say I am glad it’s over and I can relax a bit, but it was also so amazing! All the kids went crazy, especially my Bella. She was a little nervous at first, but then was so over joyed to be spending her special day with her favorite Disney Princess.

Elsa was AMAZING!! She must have been asked a million questions by the kids, in which she answered them ALL perfectly. She sang the hit song “Let it Go” with all the kids, while all of the kids were belting out the words with her lol. Whenever Elsa was walking around, Bella kept picking up her cape so no one would step on it, so adorable.  After all her “duties” were done, which was about an hour, she chose to stay longer, until the end of the party for that matter! She even herded all the kids outside to play! WOW, word’s just do NOT express how wonderful she was, such a blessing.

Well, aside from Elsa’s costume, I also made about 70% of all the decorations for her party. I usually go crazy making decorations for all of her birthday parties anyways, but this one in particular I went all out on. I made so many origami white Christmas trees, that I glittered up, used a few different kinds of paper to make cone trees, and glittered those up too,  a few banners, drew a huge olaf for pin the nose on Olaf, made a Piñata, etc.

For food it was simple, although, I made the cutest little march mellow Olaf heads. Ok so they weren’t perfect, but they still served their purpose. Aside from all that, everything else was simple and fun. Of corse I have so many pictures for you to see. I hope you enjoy them all, and thanks for reading!

Hope your having a wonderful day!

P.S Towards the end of the party poor Elsa’s wig was starting to loose it’s grip on her head, so the last few pics you see her hairline. Oh well the kids didn’t notice one bit…SCORE!

By the way this is the Olaf I drew for Pin the nose on Olaf! And I also made the “Frozen” piñata, which I will never be doing again. That took like 5 hours to make, and my fingers had blisters on them afterwards from the hot glue…OUCH!
