Bright Ruffled Quilt by {Pick Up Some Creativity}

Beautiful quilt I found by Pick Up Some Creativity. This quilt is just beautiful, and I love all the textures and colors. Can you image receiving something like this at your baby shower or birthday party? I love this quilt, and would love to have one myself. Queen Grandma.....we are requesting a new item!!!

Ashlynn's 5th Ice Cream Social Birthday Party via The TomKat Studio

I absolutely LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the hanging ice cream cones!! And I would have never thought to do that! Doesn't that tree just look too yummy!

Above is the invitation that Ashlynn's Mom used for the party. Ashlynn is wearing a rosette tank by Modern Frills and a tutu by Tiny Belles Boutique. I love the blue that they used....really! The invites are by Pen 'N Paper Flowers.

And as all of you know I am super partial to intials or anything monogrammed, so I love this lime green A! I think Ashlynn had a great looking party! I wish I had more time to throw my loved ones parties like this!
FYI - my nephew is turning 4 tomorrow!! I can't wait to help out with his Blue Train Birthday Party. I am the cupcake making, picture copying Auntie!!

Motivation...

Today is a downer day. I can not seem to find motivation lately. I feel like I can't put my inspiration into real form. This weekend I will try to rest, and maybe that will help! Stay tuned, I have been working on a few fun things!

"I Made It" Renaissance Era Handmade Sock Lovie

Mom has been making sock animals for some time, and then she gets on a whim, and makes something too cool for words! Mom was sitting at the hospital with one of her nieces and started working on this little guy. My Son loves Knights in Shining Armor, and anything renaissancy, so we are always inspired to go in that direction. Below please find the man Mom made. After she made him, she was so tempted to keep him. And I don't blame her, he's adorable.

Mom literally hand makes these...hand sews them, plays with the ruffles, then stitches them in place. These guys are truly labor's of love.

She listed this guy on etsy, so be sure to check him out here.
I am also linking this post, and this adorable little guy to "Everything Etsy".
