A Stuffed Animal Birthday Party

Decorating was cheap because I just used stuffed animals Violet already had. I ordered unstuffed animals from here for the kids to stuff and keep. They LOVED it. I tried to replicate this cake (couldn't find a direct link) as best I could but added some candy pearl "polka-dots" and some gold sprinkle/dust at the base. I got my animal toppers from Hobby Lobby.

A Dollhouse for Violet































I was lucky enough to have been given this fantastic collapsible wooden dollhouse from the...80's? 70's? Not sure when, but it was in great shape and I loved the look of it. I immediately went to work, and a month later (and many, many late nights later), I surprised my girl with a fully furnished and decorated dollhouse. I enjoyed every glue and paint-covered minute of it.

This was a cake I made for my daughter. She was only 1 so she just smashed it into her face.

Fabric Covered Flower Pots

These terra cotta pots are covered in fabric using this tutorial. I made a lot...A LOT.

Ice Cream Party

I found this cake and copied it. It was surprisingly simple although mine turned out a little lumpy and lopsided. Oh well - what 3 year old cares?





DIY A-Frame Tent

This is actually my husband's DIY - but I showed him where the tutorial was and I threw the quilt over it so does that count?


DIY Toy Sailboats

A handmade sailboat is a beautiful thing...a bit ambitious...but beautiful.

I should have written down instructions because they really turned out nice and actually worked!
