I feel like I've been MIA from my little blog FOREVER, even though its only been a little while. Some great things and some not so great things have been going on. I don't like to bring negativity into my blog space because this is supposed to be my Happy Place, so instead I chose to take a time out and come back when with a new attitude.
So enough about that, on to better things.
After making numerous popcorn boxes I took a break from all things baby shower related. I just lost some steam and was stuck on how to do the invites and therefore everything was put on hold.
I blame this brain fart on those darn popcorn boxes. While I think they are so cute there are time consuming and a bit of a pain in my rear. Next time I think I'll just use paper bags or buy some already made.
I finally finished the water bottle labels and love love love how they turned out. I have a little love affair with water bottle labels. They are at every shower/birthday part I do, just because I think it's a sweet and inexpensive touch. Normally I personalize them with the baby's name for a baby shower or the birthday/name of the birthday person on the labels but for these I decided I wanted to just stick with the theme, and that darn brain fart was creeping in again and I couldn't figure out how to use the baby's name on them. Either way I love them and I think the mom to be will appreciate them too.
I made them basically the same as I always do, using my cricut, some glue dots and clear contact paper. You can see a tutorial here for the ones I made for the Grant's 1st birthday. For these I used multiple colors of polka dot paper for the wrap then another color cardstock for the center.
After finishing these I'm full speed ahead on getting more baby shower projects marked off my to-do list. I bought the supplies for a new cupcake stand, more on that later, and the invites are in the process of being finished. More on that later too.
