coming up!

Our little girl is almost two! This picture was taken with my phone on our way to the beach (a trip that I promise to document soon!), and I thought it was cute :).

We're going to have a small, cheap birthday party in our tiny backyard, and since I have tons of burlap and orange construction paper, her party will involve those items :). To follow are some pictures that have inspired me so far:

Anniston LOVES stars...twinkle twinkle, looking at the stars, pointing at stars always, watching her projector on her ceiling which has stars AS it plays twinkle twinkle. SO, we are improvising and having STARfish everywhere.

I am in love with these orange paper straws.

And, we already had some white paper lanterns.

Thought this was cute. May have to make it look more kid-like, but I love it.


So I definitely already had an ice cream-themed party planned (just on paper) for Anniston, and I felt pretty good about it, but after a while, as Stan so knowingly recited to me: I had already had that party in my head and had to move on to something else. Blame it on nesting?

(Oh, and thanks you guys for your sweet comments wanting to see my paintings...I am actually working on a website (ahh) right now, and will let you know when it is up so you can see pictures.)
