Baby Showers & Halloween Obsessions

Don't worry everyone.... I have recovered from my last post and have actually felt better and haven't cried since I "let it all out". Thank you Mama Barb for suggesting a vent session :)

I have been so horrible with updating pictures and blogging lately! I feel like my days are getting shorter and shorter and I don't have time to do everything I want.

In my last post, I mentioned there were baby shower pics to come ..... I feel that the decor is way too cute to smash into a PicFrame of 5 pictures, so you can scroll through the SUPER CUTE baby shower my mom and I threw for my sister-in-law.

These first 3 pictures are of the "BABY GIRL" banner I made for Madison. I LOVE the way it turned out!
(squares & circles were cut out w/ my Cricut and the letters and images were hand-drawn/cut by me)

(I wish the lighting on the camera would have shown the colors correctly. But it's still adorable)
I also made the large "A" for baby Addisyn's nursery. I LOVE the floral-fabric-ribbon I was able to find at Hobby Lobby! Gave it such a soft & delicate look.

I also decided to hang Madison's "Bump Tracker" pics on some ribbon along with Ryan & Madison's baby pictures.

I feel SO bad that I am almost 3 weeks late posting Madison's 32 week pics!! I told you I have been crazy busy!

The fluffed paper balls were from Michael's Craft Store

The fans above the drinks, napkins, plates, straws, etc were from a really cute website called 

My mom found the mason jars at Harmons and we just wrapped paper strips around them.
The drink dispenser was purchased from Tai Pan Trading (My new favorite store BTW!)

And this super adorable cake with edible beading is from a boutique in Highland called Dear Lizzie; I also had one of my Bridal Showers there and it is the cutest and most girly store! Love it!

 The cupcakes and cake bites were from Sweet Tooth Fairy - my personal favorite!

The little gray and pink "lamps" I made from paper and ribbon wrapped around a wine glass. (just a little addition to the table)

An adorable set-up for a Luncheon Baby Shower

I think it all turned out so adorable and Madison had SO many friends and family members show up to support the arrival of *Baby A*


Now time for some Halloween craft/decor sneak peeks.

Madison (thankfully) asked if I would make her a banner for Halloween to hang over her entry way mirror; and as always, I never turn down an opportunity to craft :).

I LOVE the way it turned out!! Lets just say, I've always been happy with the way my things turn out :)
(all paper materials [banner strips, circle fans, letters, etc.] were drawn out and cut by hand by me)

Madison sent me a picture of her completed entry set-up. It's perfect for our favorite month/holiday!

I had some left over material so I decided to make one for myself to hang over my entry mirror as well (we have the same entry-way set-up so I knew it would work) :)

Now this is just the banner and lights.... My mom and I had some fun at Tai Pan yesterday and I love my new decor; but it's not done yet so I don't want to post until I feel like it's where I want it :)

So here is my sneak peek. (almost the same as Madison's, just some color variations)
(all paper materials [banner strips, circle fans, letters, etc.] were drawn out and cut by hand by me)

Halloween is EASILY my FAVORITE holiday of the year!! And October is my favorite month. Starting October 1st, you can be as festive as you want, the best scary movies are on TV, awesome scary movies come out in theatre, everyone's awesome decorations are up, and the haunted houses are up and running!! The atmosphere of Halloween just makes me giddy and I LOVE it! Plus, it's another holiday I get to craft for :)

I'll do my best to post sooner rather than later about all of my fun decor we bought.... but no promises ;)
