It started with a preschool trip to the pumpkin patch. (right in the middle of Red Ribbon Week). Followed by Fall Break from school.
During Fall break we celebrated a birthday. A pretty significant birthday. 8 years is pretty old. Many thanks to Amy from Increasingly Domestic for the fantastic birthday balloon idea– it was a major hit!
I needed some pics of my banner for my boutique. I think I like this one. 🙂 The best part of the setup? It only cost me about $20 for the whole thing because most of what you see I already had on hand. I like to fill up the candy jars with the special birthday child’s favorite treats and snacks for a day of indulging- which is where the majority of the cost went. Plus $.97 for balloons. 😉
Ummm… I think he liked it. 🙂
And the centerpieces? 2X4 blocks of wood painted orange with a stick stem glued on top and tied with a raffia bow. 3 per table for 30 tables= a LOT of pumpkins! Luckily I have many AMAZING friends who dropped everything and helped me paint, sand, glue and tie! They turned out wonderfully. I gave most of them to my friends who helped, but I still probably have about 30 pumpkins left! Wonder what I should do with all of them? I’m thinking Thanksgiving centerpieces. 😉
In the middle of all of this there has been production for the boutique (pics coming soon), head colds and Point of View projects, plus I was able to attend the launch party for Amanda Herring’s new line of fabric for Riley Blake- Delighted. It was wonderful! Tonight is my Grandfather’s 80th birthday party and a blog event I may or may not attend. Then on to more production for the boutique. I need inventory my friends and it’s not happening as fast as I want it to!
So if I sound a little flustered or out of control- it’s simply because I am. I keep hearing Dory- “Just keep swimming, just keep swimming!” I wonder if I should be worried that now I’m hearing voices.
Enjoy your weekend and Halloween if I don’t pop in before then!
