Ooh la la...Charlotte's 6th birthday Paris party

For those of you who know Charlotte, you know she is nothing less than a Diva!!! So, when I came across this adorable Paris themed customized party printable set from Paper Glitter I knew I had found what I was doing for her 6th birthday! I loved how everything turned out and I think she did too because of all the "thank you's" I got from her after the party.

How cute is this poodle?!? My mom made this adorable "Pin the tail on the Poodle" for her party out of felt and it came out fabulous!

And here is my little birthday girl cheating trying to feel where the tail is!!!!

Happy Birthday sweetheart. Can't believe another year has come and gone. It's hard to believe how fast you and your little sister are growing up in to such little ladies.

Turkey Toes

Thanksgiving is right around the corner and if you know me I am always looking for ideas for cute gifts to give teachers, co-workers and friends. I recently made these for Halloween gifts (thanks to the free printables from Living Locurto!) and they were a big hit!!
Well I came across this adorable Thanksgiving gift idea from Chasing Fireflies and said "hey I can do this myself"!!!

I couldn't find the candy corn with the brown, so I just used the regular colored color ones I found. I used 16oz mason jars and these adorable FREE Thanksgiving cupcake toppers from Skip to My Lou as the jar labels. I wrapped my brown ribbon around the jar (like I did my Halloween ones) and typed "Turkey Toes" on my computer in a cute dark brown font, printed it on orange cardstock and punched it with my 2" circle punch and placed it on the lid with double stick tap. Turned out just as cute (if not cuter!!) and didn't cost me $14.00/each.

I will take a picture of the ones I did and post them soon. In the meantime, try these adorable jars out for gifts for you friends and family!!!
