Sesame Street Baby Shower

My cousins are expecting a little girl in October.  Their last name is "Byrd" so immediately I thought about a "Big Bird" Theme :-)  I have been working on projects for about a month now...had to work in between preparing for a job with a new company, balancing my daughter's summer therapy schedule, and managing and planning a Fall/Holiday event for one of the local organic farms.  Here are a few things I have been working on for the shower...

 Michaels had solid color canvases on sale for $1 each, so I created this easy artwork

 I made this Sesame Street Quilt...I love quilting

 My cousin made these handmade soaps as favors for the guests

 I made this party banner

I love the has special meaning to our family

 Kids Table Centerpiece

 My Diaper Cake- Onesies & Receiving Blankets

Since the due date is in October, I decided to get the baby her first Halloween Basket

I made the cookie monster onesie

I love Abby on my Diaper Cake...well, onesie cake

School Time

My daughter is getting ready to start school soon (pre-k program) and I wanted to make her a new quilt for nap time.  I also found a new backpack on sale at Pottery Barn Kids!  New shoes, new quilt, new backpack, and a new little cuddle time friend...I think she's ready!
