Oh Deer

Corny title, I know. Steve downloaded pictures last night and this one stood out to be one of the best. The deer were very jumpy when you tried to pet them but Isla was persistent and finally was able to pet one that didn't run away.

Crowns


Isla's birthday is quickly approaching. I never set out to make crowns for Isla every birthday party, it just happened. Her 1st party was vintage themed and I wanted to create a hat for her that looked like a party hat from the 1960's. I had nothing to go on, just my imagination. I'm not crazy about it, should have done a cone hat but whatever, can't go back. On her 2nd birthday, I decided to make one just hours before her party, as it was a last minute decision. Her theme was Sesame and red hearts so I used a red heart that were used as decorations to make her simple crown. Her 3rd birthday came around and at that point, decided I will make one every year until one of us no longer exists.

Last night I had a dream that it was her Sweet Sixteen party. We were in a different house and I had a super long table all set with candles and she peeked in the window and got excited. Also in my dream, I had pictures of her at every one of her birthday parties in front of her birthday cake. When I woke up I thought about the dream more and thought what a great idea to make a banner of the cake pictures and on the other side, the crown picture and have them hang in mid-air so they kind of spin. Yes, that's right, I'm already thinking about her Sweet Sixteen!!
