I love planning a birthday party for my girls... My youngest(Meg), who will be turning 9, has decided to have an art birthday party...I did give her a choice!!! But she hasn't had one yet and is quite excited. Time got away from me and I realized the other day that her birthday was in 2 weeks and I hadn't gotten her invites together...At first I was going to download a printable invite from Etsy and Meg and I looked for just the right one, but just before I hit the "add to cart" button... I realized that that was the easy way out. So I brainstormed a few minutes and this is what I came up with.
 I cut these palette shapes out of one of my work aprons! The paint was already on it, wahoo!!
 Well I did have to add some "extra" paint:)
The invite was printed from my computer using a fun font. I then punched holes in both and added some bakers twine(one of my favorite things)& put them in a clear cellophane sleeve with a resealable flap.

What do you think? Didn't cost a dime...

Valentine Open House

Spreading love...
I thought this would be perfect to welcome my guests, this is such a cute shop, check her out.

Preparing for an open house can be a bit nerve wracking...especially when having it in your own home.  The house needs to be cleaned, presentation spot on, food made, drinks out, music on and your dog taken care of( Vegas's groomer was closed on Tuesday so he was causing a bit of trouble, but not too much) Last minute, I started to get nervous that I wouldn't have enough stuff to sell so I sent out a few emails to other entrepreneurs to see if they would like to be apart of my open house..luckily they all said yes and it was a big hit! I had a ton of fun socializing with these girls and they each brought amazing products! Please check out each one of their Facebook pages and ETSY sites.

Here are some pictures from my day...

of course check out my facebook page! Sunshine Girl Designs
