Alright enough already, I know, I know. Since these grey, drippy clouds have me a bit down and unmotivated to create new things I thought I would share a little passion of mine. I love prepping for my kids birthday parties, the ideas floweth and consume my mind. My Mom and I have always decorated the birthday cakes for my kids, ever since they could shovel in cake with their fists. Usually rental cake pans are used and cakes are decorated up all nice and colourful, but sometimes the kids make requests that don't use a cake pan, and some just get me thinking even more about ideas to go along with the birthday 'theme'. I thought I would share some of those with you, maybe to help you with ideas as well, and they are just a lot of fun to show.
Finally one of my daughters last birthdays;

Insert a picture of a bar code here,
I googled bar code images and chose
one to insert
So I'm not the most techie person and didn't know how to post my document of the invite we sent out, so, I copied and pasted it on my post, sorry. As you can see it was a shopping party. I did up invites on the computer to look like shopping receipts, cut them into the proper width, used our own address and phone number of course, and inserted a bar code at the bottom. we rolled them up and put them inside bags to give to the girls, kind of like a shopping receipt in the bottom of your shopping bag, lol. The kids thought it was a great invite, and when we returned home each girl got a pretty little cake of her own to eat. I gave each girl $10 to shop with, and at Ardene's they can buy loot bags 2/$5 for small ones, or 2/$8 for the larger ones. Which the girls then opened and traded and wore all the neon accessories and humongous earrings, and bangles etc...
Alrighty sorry about the length of this post I got a little carried away. My birthday planning days will soon be ending and I had to reminisce. Both my girls are now at the ages where they just want to go out with their friends, the mall is always a good choice to them, and my son who knows when he will decide to be done, his this year was only with a few buddies and they went all over the city doing whatever boys like to do, bowling, video games, ice cream, and home to run around screaming and getting scratches on their knees from tackling each other on the lawn.
We just had a momentary power outage here. Whew....Those darn leaky clouds...thunder and lightening, which, I am a storm lover, so I am not complaining.
Till next time my friends, hope I have given some of you a few ideas, and if not, hope you liked what I posted. I am always open to more ideas, I have neices and nephews still that I can plan for, heehee...leave me a comment please. Chat soon
