With just about a week before our trip to MN...

I've  been busily working on birthday stuff during all nap times.  I think Lily's birthday stuff is turning out so cute and it's been a fun hobby for me.  Lily's birthday comes but once a year-- so I'm available for hire for YOUR kid's birthday!

Here is the invitation I made using digital scrapbook products from Little Dreamer Designs.  The address has been changed in case of internet perverts... good luck finding the right OLSONS in MINNESOTA!

Here is a centerpiece that I created out a formula can, some dowels, photos of the bug's first year, and more 'Little Dreamer' products.  Check www.vanillabeandesigns.com next week to see HOW I made it.

This is the full can wrapper.

Of course... there will be antennae instead of party hats at a BUG themed first birthday party.  These I made with headbands, pipe cleaners, and fuzzy poms.

I made Lily a special shirt and a tutu to wear at her party... and even made her cousin, Grace, a matching shirt-- so she'll feel special, too.

Iron-on transfers are my new favorite thing.  I got carried away and designed Lily a 'born on the fourth of July' tank top with  'little dreamers' liberty kit.

I need to stop before Lily has a 'Lily-Bug goes to the grocery store' shirt!

Wow! Everything is so cute. I'm just so sad we won't be there to celebrate with the little Bug. I will be hiring you for Luke's b-day. He needs cute stuff like that too. Will you accept quality time with the 2 of us as payment?? hahahaha.

I am so impressed!!! I am going to need some help with Micah's first birthday... I am thinking a super hero theme because his nickname is "The Micah Man". But I have a little while to think about it. :-) Have fun on your trip!
