How's your summer going?
Mine has been good, busy as usual but fun.

We celebrated three Birthdays in June!
My daughter turned 4, 
my boy turned 2..
and then I had my Birthday.  
Ya right, you think
I'm telling you my age! 
Ha ha, I've stopped counting!

For my daughter Amelie's Birthday
 I made Confetti Cake Batter Cookies 
for her to take to her Preschool
class, got the idea from Pinterest!  
They are so addicting, and very easy to make.

The morning of her Birthday 
we made pink heart
shaped pancakes with sprinkles! 

For her Birthday Party it was a  
My Little Pony Party
It wasn't just My Little Pony 
it's based off the new cartoon
Friendship is Magic.

 So once again, like when I did the
Yo Gabba Party 2 yrs ago, 
I was ahead of the game and
no party stores have decorations.  
So once again I had to
put my creative mind at 
work and create it myself.

I did find someone on 
Etsy who did a package
that included a custom invitation, 
pin the tail on the
pony, and images to print out.

The party was so cute,
and she had a great time!

For my boy Knox since 
he was turning two, 
we did a smaller party 
with just close family.  
He looooves Toy Story
so of course that had to be the theme.  

Luckily I did find 
party supplies for this party. 
 I did though have 
a special little cake made, 
and then had cupcakes for the other kids. 

I was even surprised 
that my boy who won't 
wear anything on his head, 
had to get the Woody cowboy hat, 
and would not take it off! :)

My Birthday was mixed 
in between their two Birthdays,
but my hubby did sneak off 
to get me cupcakes at one
of my favorite places Sweet Arleen's

Cupcake Wars winner twice!

Mmmmm they were good! :)

Je t'aime French Banners

  Inspired by my love of many things vintage, 
French and of course Paris.  
I created French inspired  banners 
for my Etsy shop Pink Door.  
My newest one is "Je t'aime"  (I Love You).  
The letters are on a sand/creme 
color die cut card stock, 
hand stenciled with black paint,
 and frosted with 

a fine black glitter, and of course aged 
looking edges to give it that rustic vintage look.

  I will be making other sayings in French, 
but I do accept Custom Orders.  
Just send me a message via Etsy as 
to what you desire for your banner, and voila!

Au revoir! :)

Love Is In The Air

                                               My mom and I have combined our talents 
and have been working and 
creating some handmade items. 
We have recently brought our handmade, 
vintage inspired holiday and letter stenciled banners 
to sell in her Etsy shop Saturdayfinds 
my Etsy shop The Pink Door.  
  We have been making various paper crafts 
for sometime now, and have usually made 
our banners for friends and family.  
When they were quite popular at a local boutique, 
we decided to bring them to our 
Etsy shops to share with all of you!
  We have our Valentine's Day

and Easter banners for sale now

...and soon will have our wedding themed, 
and many many more!  
We do also accept custom orders.
  Happy crafting! :)
