Baby Girl Birthday Theme Party

My little girl’s birthday was this past weekend and I can’t believe how fast time flies. I was of course going a mile a minute trying to get things done last minute but it was all worth. I was especially thankful to have good friends and family to share this wonderful day. I was able to use my wood stand to place my baby girl’s cupcakes which my mother in-law made. I also used part of my Christmas decor to flow over the the party table. As you can see my little snowflakes hanging from the ceiling.

I also wanted the cups to all that extra touch. I used mason jars and I placed wooden medallions with deer attached to it and place them around the mason jar.  My hubby and I made the invitation for this special day.

Learning Calligraphy

I am the first to tell you that my handwriting is not the best. My hubby always has difficulties reading my grocery list. So I decided that this year I wanted to give a couple of new hobbies a try, like I don’t have plenty already, hehe. The first thing that came to mind was calligraphy. I have always been interested in calligraphy but never really had the opportunity to try it until recently when a workshop came up near me. I was so excited and I am so glad that I took the leap. Its so much fun learning it, I was scared at the beginning because I am left handed and its always a challenge doing something but I never really let it hold me back or think about it really. 
I was excited to learn that my teach was left handed and she did beautiful calligraphy very easily so I knew with much practice I can be good as well.  Hopefully by the end of the year I will better handwriting.  We learn a very flowing and not so structured calligraphy which is fun for Valentines’s day. 

Here are some of the beautiful things I was in class.
