I love cooking but 4 nights is hard for me with my two boys. If something is hard for me I make a craft and it makes it fun. And it has actually helped me stick to it because it is written down.
I made this Menu Board with a new software that I was asked to try called My Memories. So far I love it and you will never guess what it is...scrapbooking software! I have been playing around with it but I wanted to see if I could make other projects besides scrapbook pages. Success. I will have more on the software next week along with another giveaway.
Speaking of giveaways, you have two more days to enter the Custom Letterhead Giveaway going on HERE.
In the meantime, I will be busy planning healthy meals and actually cooking them.
Take plain onesies and turn them into a baby fashion statement.
Babies need a little refashion sometimes too. These onesies were originally embroidered with a little "baby saying"... cute but I thought the colors were a little too girly for my Clyde. He never wore them, I refashioned and re-gifted! I just used some fabric scraps and some imagination.
I made two; here is how I made the first one:
I started by embroidering the letter "f" on my fabric, I just penciled it freehand right on the fabric.
Next step is to iron interfacing to the back of the fabric. I went for the raw edge look and this way the fabric won't fray as much.
Next, line the fabric up to the onesie and mark with a pencil where you will cut.
Sew around the new fabric that you are attaching.
Onesie refashion number 2...
Add interfacing to the back of the fabric again and cut out some pieces of the pattern.
Pin the pieces on the onesie so you cover the old design.
And sew. I again went for a messy sewn look. If you like a neater look you could do a tight zig-zag stitch around the perimeter of the fabric.
I added my fabric label...
and wrapped them up in a cute little package. Add some clips and you have a perfect baby gift.
We had to have some healthy snacks for the kids so they were too sugared up from the cupcakes.
I saw these fancy fruit ka-bobs on Pinterest. These are just cute for life, I don't need a party to make these again.
Another Pinterest find... these DJ Lance Rock Radio party favors. The radio is a free printable from NickJr.com and you just tape it to a box of animal crackers. Yes please!
I came across a few birthday banners with the YGG faces but I changed mine a little and had just used their eyes.
I also made the Birthday Boy a shirt. Which didn't stay clean or on for long. Tutorial HERE.

I would say it was a great time. Any party that ends with eating a cupcake in your underwear is a success in my book.
