2013 Year End Review

I can't believe the year is almost over. I wish I could find a way to slow down time. What a year this has been. One I will never forget. The worst part was everything that happened with my mom. Thankfully she is doing better now and still has her leg. I hope that she will continue to do well in the New Year and we never have to go through something like that again.
The best part of the year was my Etsy shop finally took off. I found my niche with party decor for kids, specifically 1 year old's. I never imagined it would get this big. I am now doing something I love as a  full time job. I am just trying to keep up with the demand and not burn out. I need to be better in the New Year to not take so much on and make time for myself and family but it is hard for me to say no.
I have been so busy with work that I have not had much time for posting on my blog so today I thought I would share some of my favorite projects this year and some that I never had a chance to share until now so without further ado here they are.
January: Finally got the chance to try the Chalkboard technique.

  February: Monster birthday party.

 March. Monkey Birthday party.

  April: Custom invitations for a nautical birthday.

 May: Pink Party

June: Floral Birthday
July: Princess Birthday

 August : Turtle Party, Sunshine Party, Owl Party


October: Gingham


 November: Penguins for Boys and Girls, Winter Onederland

December: Birds and Ribbons and Bows

Which one is your favorite?

It was a lot of work but very rewarding too.  I am also very thankful for Emilia and all her help especially with the cutting and Rich for taking all the packages to the post office to try and solve the shipping problems. I still have a long list of party themes to work on next year so be sure to check back then. I hope you enjoy the last few days of 2013 and 2014 is a great year for us all!
