Giveaway & Party Time

Im so happy some days to have this blog as an outlet for keeping myself (somewhat) accountable, journal what Iv'e been getting accomplished, and mostly to share things & ideas, as I roam blogland for inspiration too! Im so thankful for each and everyone of your comments whether I have time to visit your blog or have time to comment back. With 3 kids, a dog , 2 cats, 7 fish.....and whatever else lurks around this yard I always seem to have my hands full. So in honor of that, I had so many lovely comments on that gorgeous turquiose tablecloth I thrifted back a post or 2, I thought I would give this one away! I found this gorgeous, one very similar the other day while out thrifting-its in mint condition!!!! So I thought I would do a random draw for it! Leave a comment if your in! Isn't it lovely? I just had to share-I guess i dont need 2!
Do any of your children seem to be addicted to those "My littlest Pet shop" pets? My daughter is totally infatuated with them,and her whole birthday party theme is "Littlest Pet Shop " Birthday Party. We plan to make crafty pet carriers, have an adoption center (above) with printed adoption papers(made on computer). These guys above are all up for adoption, the kids will chose who they want & fill in the adoption sheet, and write they're name on the collars. We made those together with some fun foam & hang tags. I made a bunch of leashes too for them to buy in the little "store" where they will buy pet accessories & play store with cash registers & fake money. Im going to make all "little " food too. It should be fun! I got alot of these ideas of a party website-cant remeber which but there isnt very many, & it had some fabulous party ideas! I hope to be taking lots of pictures, Some of the children are dressing up like pets too!
This is another beautiful tablecloth I found thrifting at the same time. Im not always into green but this linen was just so nice. Couldn't you just see it as a skirt?

Your eggs are DARLING! I once got all drunk on inspiration when the stuffie cakes hit the blogs. Bought all the supplies and found out my fine motor skills were not what I imagined they'd be. Anyhoo... I've had the felt and goodies waiting in the wings to be made into something - and you've inspired me with your eggs! {{{SMACK}}}

The green fab... I have placemats like that. I think the fab comes from India (I bought them at Cost Plus). I bought them to make into something else (also waiting in the wings to be made into something). Your tablecloth WOULD make a great skirt!

I love your blog, and your idea with the Littlest Pet Shop toys is wonderful! My kids have not found those particular things yet, but being boys, they tend to gravitate towards cars or things that can cause destruction lol. Please throw my name in the hat, I have NO luck finding gorgeous tablecloths like that around here!

Love the green - and it would be great as a skirt or as is!

I agree on the blog thing - right now I have a good friend who gets the "list" from me periodically and then the "completed" but a blog would be nice just so I can include the photos and have a record. I like the ability to somehow get it recorded!

My 7 year old is crazy about Littlest Pet Shop too. And I'll admit, the little animals are kind of cute in their own way. She also has a "Groovy Pet" that she loves (related to Groovy Girls) so her birthday party was pet related this year too. We made shrinky dink charms for our stuffed pets and ribbon pet collars. I made "puppy chow" treats for their party favors. It was a fun party. I hope yours goes well!

I'm in love with your thrifted table cloth. I would be honored to be entered into your drawing.

Lovely fabric for a spring skirt!

An adoption listserve I'm on (because my husband and I are adopting children from Vietnam and china) is discussing of the use of the word "adoption" when referring to things that are not the same as making families forever (Adopt-a-seal, etc.) While some people think it's being over-sensitive, I can see how young adopted children, who already have insecurities about being abandoned, could misinterpret this. Not trying to throw a wet blanket on your party, but I found this interesting in light of the other discussion. Is adopting the stuffed animals part of this Pet Shop craze?

I feel odd leaving my name in a drawing so I don't do it very often (I am totally weird, I guess). I deliberately waited until today to comment so I wouldn't be included--instead, I just want to drop you a note to say how lovely it all is and I really love the felt (?) Easter eggs.

Blogger Jodi said...

It sounds like you're planning the cutest birthday party ever! What a great idea.

The turquoise table cloth is lovely. Please count me in for the drawing.

The green would make a beautiful skirt, especially with the border print along the hem.

Your blog is so much fun.... I was out today and found a great box for utensils and it was red/ gold with a little star on the front. Really cheesy velvet on the inside but.... I love the look. I also got an old tab glass... a "P" (present) for my bf. Thank you for the blogging. I LOVE YOUR BLOG. Also, what a great idea for the party. Where did you get your toys???? My daughter would love this.


Chrissy...

P.S. I also LOVE the felt eggs.
