the perfect way to start a blog

I think that I have put this off long enough! 
What was i waiting for? My love for DIY and fashion and interior design and cooking should have been enough! My old love for writing should have put me over the edge...
But I guess I was scared? More like nervous...
But here it is!
Im just so happy to finally realize (with my husband's help) that no day is better than today to start something :)

This weekend we celebrated our little girl's 1st birthday party!
One year that flew by so fast.. I cant believe that our little Em is a year old. She is now a big ONE year old.. walking, talking, and playing games. 
And I just really want to say... 
To have known my little girl for a year ... 
To have carried her for one day short of 9 months
And to be her mother.

I pray she grows up with a heart as beautiful as she is.

I made SUPER simple silly bracelets for the kids as favors at her birthday party. I didn't make a tutorial because like I said- they are Simple! They are made with felt- easily accessible and so cheap!

the middle flower was made using this tutorial! :

The football for my son!

Me being a horrible hand model.. not as easy as it looks! ;-)
All I did to make a bracelet was cut out cute shapes, hot glue them to the center, hot glue Velcro to one side of the strap and to the back side of the other strap and THAT'S ALL! (Just make one strip of Velcro longer so that the guest can adjust the size to fit their wrist!)
Its also great for both boys and girls! Since we had both at the party, I made a football and a few other "boy" shapes :)

I hope this inspired you to make some for your next party or as a fun craft with your kiddos!
