Cutest Pink Baby Shower! Part II

This is the continuing post on the very PINK baby shower that I had for my daughter.


If you missed Part I you can see it HERE.



In the first post, I showed you some decor and the Sign-In Table with a couple of games.




Let's move on to the dining tables...


I used my handy Silhouette electronic cutting machine to make a lot of my decor for this shower.

Cutest Pink Baby Shower! Part 1

You might be asking yourself...

Where has Terry been from Forever Decorating?
She just is not posting as much!

Well, I am here to tell you that I have
been quite busy...

When I found out that I was going to be
a Grandma, I patiently waited until my
daughter was 22 weeks along to find out the sex of the baby...

Then started making the cutest PINK shower decor that I could think of!

Vacation in San Diego!

I have been away for a week to sunny San Diego! Hubby had a conference there and we took some extra days for us to enjoy. It was 14 degrees when we left Illinois and San Diego was in the 70's and creeping into the 80's with beautiful sunny days! I will show some amazing pictures and facts that we learned.
,
We stayed in downtown San Diego at the US Grant Hotel. It is upscale and beautiful with many stunning artwork and sculpture pieces. They had a French artist make all the headboards...

put on and remove

every day when

I make the bed then

prepare it for sleeping!

to
make
a
change!

Winter Putz Display

While most people display their Putz Houses during the Christmas season,

I reserve mine for a favorite winter display...

Why?

Because, I have way too much Christmas decor to display and not enough surface space to show and share it all at the same time!

This year I made this felt snowflake pillow...

The Best of 2014

When 2014 first arrived, I thought this was going to be a lean year in terms of projects. My home was close to what I wanted it to look like
                                                 ...but oh I was wrong.
It's been a great year of improvements and completely new creations!

The Cutest Wool Trees

One of the favorite things
that I do every year
to get myself in the
Spirit of Christmas
is go to an Open House at a local natural crafts store called
Ohio Street Originals.

This post is not about this store (but you can see an old post I did on that store HERE)

What this post is about are the fun and adorable little wool trees that I discovered there and how to make them!

Ticking In Time for Christmas

As my mind was

dreaming up

a new way to display

my Christmas decor

(It's boring if it's put up the same way every year, don't you think?)











I decided that I needed

a new runner

for my buffet...

Creative Nativity Display

It all started this summer when my son gave me a single, huge elk antler. I knew that I wanted to use it for my Christmas display with greenery but the rest came as I was working on getting the loads of Christmas decor out to decorate...
