henry's shower

good heavens it has been way too long since i have blogged, and by golly do i miss it!
i miss my old self...and i miss you guys.

i am slowly coming back, and dare i say, i am ready to start blogging again :o)

last month i did not have a lot in me...but my friend erin had a sweet new baby and i wanted to throw a shower for her.

i thought you might like some of these easy ideas:

Scalloped Edge Muffin Toppers:

i used photo shop to create a round circle and added the text "henry" in the middle.  if you do not have photo shop just forget the circle and print out your name on card stock.  then i used a round scalloped punch to cut them out!


Flag Muffin Toppers:

i cut out random triangular shapes out of double sided paper and just taped them to toothpicks.


Flag Name tag Vases:

i had a bunch of these white vases.
i filled them with white carnation flowers, placed a flag in the vase, and tied a tag and some tiny triangle flags around the vase.  they turned out super cute!

Flag Table Banner:

i don't have a close-up picture of the banner?!  i just cut out a bunch of triangles, punched holes in the corners, and strung them on white string.

(I should have taken a before photo but this is a photo of the aftermath :o) )

love and miss,

I love that you are feeling better. Your blog is one that I had always checked regularly, and still did while you were offline. Every few days I'd check hoping that you'd be back. I always love your ideas and crafts. Always remember though that you are your #1 and this baby and your families #1. The blog world can wait if your not %100. I did miss your posts. Stay healthy!
