Crafty Tuesday

Another week down – I do have a few crafty things to show this week, although they are all from Em’s birthday bash.

I realized as I was working on Em’s Birthday post that I didn’t take any photos of my “decorations.” I made little nametags for each of the girls who were coming to the party, but here is Em’s still stuck on a pot on the patio.

The tags carried out our little “star” theme – and had lots of glitter, of course. I also made a banner (yeah, no photo) and used the “star” for the cake, too…

I was going to make a big cake with a stage – and then just realized that the little cake and cupcakes went over very well at Ad’s party last year, so I decided that might be a better plan of attack here, too – and the “glittery” personal cupcakes were a pretty big hit.

And, Em and I are working on Thank You notes…

You’ll understand, once you read (once I write it) Em’s birthday post why the thank yous are ladybugs instead of HSM related. I’m making Em write some in all of the notes – so it may be a little while before you get yours, if you were kind enough to send her a birthday gift!

And that is all I have this week….so tired. How about you all? Any crafty goodness to share?
