Baby Shower Gifts

Hi all! Are you having a nice weekend?  Ours has been very good.  I went to the farmer's market and grocery store on Friday, went out to breakfast yesterday with sweet Carol, had a play date with some of Kara's school friends at the playground, and today was my cousin's baby shower.  Here's what I made for her...

I saw this idea on Pinterest from the Little Birdie Secrets blog and just had to try it.  It's four receiving blankets and four onesies made to look like cupcakes.  I even bought a cake box at Walmart to put them in. I had a lot of fun making these.  :)

The card was inspired by Renee's "5 minute" baby card. I loved the simplicity of the umbrella and bow.


















Have a really great night and thanks so much for stopping by.  :)

......and P.S.....what the hell is up with the new Blogger?....it's SOOOOOO hard to move pictures around now when writing up a post. Oye!

I hear you about the new blogger. I am having a hard time figuring it out too. Not just the pictures,everything! Your not the only one having this isssue! Why change what worked.

What a sweet idea! I'll bet your gift was the hit of the party! Yes...Blogger is being a pain in the azzz with adding pictures. You have to have the cursor in the right place before you upload the pic. Sure was easier doing it the old way. :-(

What a fantastic presentation of baby gifts! WOW, that's really cute!!
With the new blogger, just highlight and add one picture at a time, write some, then go back, highlight another picture and add it, write some, etc. I found it impossible to move them if I add them all at once!
Breakfast was fun, and I could have spent another 2 hours there!! Can't wait for the next one ;)
