Sami's Circus Party!

-Sami's Circus Party-

I had a fun time decorating this year for Sami's 6th Birthday.  
  I just wanted to share the tent I decorated out in the back porch.

This is made with plastic table covers.. very simple to assemble.
I used 4 red covers and 2 white.. you could do more of course if you wanted to make it even more BIG but this was good for me.  :)
One cover drooped to the left and the other drooped to the right. (does that make sense?)
I thumb tacked it to the top and then when I had all the pieces and colors tacked I taped the sides together so the wind wouldn't take it all different ways.
The kids really had a fun time and really enjoyed the decor.

I served gumballs, brownies, marshmallow peanut candies, taffys, popcorn, caramel apples, goldfish, peanuts, animal crackers and I also made cotton candy from a machine I found on sale at Macy's. :)  

We had hot dogs and hamburgers and to drink was Izze's juices (on sale!).. simple but fun! (no one complained so I say they had fun.. lol)
I found the red baskets at the store (Fred Meyers) on sale for 1.50 for 4 baskets.  The checkered liners I had from a previous party.

We had face painting (got to love Sami's face!!! he's so serious... LOL!!!!), balloon popping, games and lots of food!  I gathered wood scraps from my Dads house and painted it. Simple, cheap and a fun, my type of party!!

Crochet Produce Handbag

I love this bag! 

I just finished this last week.  It said it was a flower bag for your garden but when I first saw it, I thought right away it would be great for my trips to the farmers market and put my produce in there.  Can't wait to use it this coming May when the farmers market is open!

Measurements: 22" length by 12" high
handles are braided and are about 44" in length

**Etsy account coming soon to sell my products you see on here.
This is the opening end on the sides

Woolen Eater Blanket Challenge finished!

This is my starting stage...
 This is my final pictures of the challenge I had mentioned before... did it take me that long to finish it? Unfortunately, yes! I had some things come up with family but I finally finished it and it looks beautiful!  With all this hard work tho.. it is hard to give this away!  I don't have anything to match with it but I will find a good place for it someday. *wink*
I will try this pattern again!
The beginning photo stage is a great idea for hot pads! *wink*
I'm thinking of Christmas gifts already.. :)

Here you can see the final baby blanket.
measurements:  4' by 4'

 Here you can see the folded edge to see the other side of the patten it makes.. puffy and smooth! very beautiful!

Happy 2012!!  

Have you gotten used to writing that yet? My goals this year (I don't like saying resolutions because when I say that, they seem to never get done) are to commit more to this blog & my catering blog & update more often.  I also want to eat healthier... thats a hard one for me as I love to cook and bake. 
I also would like to commit more on me... by this I mean I want to focus more on myself with crafts, my hair, nails, facials, meditation, etc.. I lost myself and need to dig this girl out!  I need to care and love myself and learn to avoid issues, problems and drama by staying positive and learning to make peace with things.

More goals are:
remodeling a few areas in my home
get and stay organized
try new recipes with more veggies and fruits and from other cultures.
drink more water
adventure more with my boys and hubby
to stay sober

What are your goals?

With that being said, I am going to update this week with some projects I have done and doing... so not only will you see crafts and recipes here  you will see my updates on my remodeling and home repair. :)  More things will be added in time as well.. 

I hope you enjoy your year and all your goals come true!  *cheers!*
