Tomorrow is Addie's birthday. I can't believe it has already been a year since she joined our family!
I haven't had a chance to post any this week. I was sick a couple of days, crazy busy a couple of others, and on top of everything else my laptop is acting up. I will be back with a longer post and more photos once I have my laptop working again. I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend and 4th of July!!!

|Lots of love and slobbery baby kisses for baby Evie. |
New baby in the works is in the bottom right corner.
|Clockwise from top left: tinsel garland wreath, bubble/pinwheel favors, pom poms, |
circle garland, cupcake toppers, and pretty handmade pinwheels
Other than experimental doll making, I have been trying to get a lot of the odds and ends for her party together. You see that wreath? It cost me $4 and 5 minutes. I saw some tinsel garland at Dollar Tree and thought it might make a cute wreath. I already had a straw wreath at home that I wasn't using, so I just wrapped the garlands around it and VOILA! I have a happy, sparkly, festive wreath perfect for July 4th and our Addie's birthday. For the favors, I got some big bottles of bubbles, wrapped them with some pretty paper, added a tag, and then added in a pinwheel. Simple but I really like how they came out. We have some pom poms that are currently living on the mantle until it's time to put them up for the party. My kitchen doorway has been taken over by these circle garlands that I made. At the party, these will be over the table with all the sweets, along with the pom poms. I love how the circle garlands and cupcake toppers came out. I ordered a package from Dimpleprints and used it to print out all of the tags, banners, and signs. It was a very affordable way to really personalize her party. I still have to put together the pendant banners and put together the cupcake toppers and pinwheels, and a few other things, but things are definitely coming together. I am trying to do as much in advance as possible so that all I will have to worry about next week is the actual decorating, doing some major cleaning, and a ton of baking. I can't believe my baby is about to turn 1!!!
