My little man is turning 1 Saturday (though the party is on Sunday, and I'm regretting the time I chose as he is usually asleep at 3 pm)! I can't believe it! I'm such a procrastinator so I'm finally sitting down to document everything I'm doing to get ready for the party. I thought I would share some pictures of what I've done so far, yet there is SO much left to do.

What we're going to wear.....
My shirt is from Banana Republic that I happened to get on CRAZY sale for basically 20 buckaroos...oh yes!

I looooove love the ruffles.

These boots...Ariat...got them for 30 bucks because I posted a facebook status asking where I could get cheap boots, it just so happened a friend from high school had a pair in her garage sale pile. What a blessing!! 

Here is Noah's Birthday Banner in progress, I have a few more triangles to sew on.

Oh! And the invite (i made it on gimp)! With the address blurred of course.

This is what I've been working on today....

thank you tags for the bags that will contain the cookies cut from these magnificent cowboy cookie cutters!!!!

Well, that's all for now. I'm also making cupcakes and a horseshoe shaped cake but I'll save the pictures of those for the next post which will be pictures of the actual party. I'm so excited. It's going to be so cute, and fun!!!

In love

I am in love with my little man who is almost 1, I CAN'T BELIEVE IT! Look at how unbelievably beautiful he is. I have GOT to start working on his birthday party! Eek! January 29th...I'm slacking.

Love this next photo by Anna Corn, especially Noah's cheese face.

Anyway, I started my etsy shop, Cattails Studio, in November last year and I've been blessed to have 3 sales so far to some very dear friends. I love making things, especially pretty things! Especially pretty hair accessories! Like this one...it's very pretty on.

My friend Sarah and I have applied for our very first craft fair in the Spring. We're praying continually that we get in! It will be fun and a great experience for us. Here are a couple new designs...

That's all for now. I'm in love with my life right now. I'm so blessed. Praise God for all his glory.
