off and running

have you ever heard the saying "the calm before the storm"  well i am the opposite 
"the STORM before the CALM".
since we got home from florida i think i have only taken 1 shower, fallen asleep at or before 10, and missed lunch twice.  needless to say i have been a bit busy.  i am loving every minute of it though!  want to know what i have been working on?

madeline's birthday party is this coming sunday, we are doing a minnie mouse theme, i had all these great idea's i had been saving in hopes of doing a minnie mouse birthday someday, so because i know i may not have the chance at another minnie party, i am running like a mad woman.  i saw this great idea on a blog and copied just a couple things. 

these canisters are actually coffee bean tins, i covered them with black paper and found this adorable minnie ribbon at joann's
these pom-poms, i have been dying to make, i first saw them at michael's, but was not about to pay that much for them, so i found a great tutorial along with a very good friend who new how to do them as well.  my wonderful was kind enough to hang with me this afternoon and help me make a few more!

 i loved this banner from this birthday party, so much that i based the whole party around it!

and as if that all wasn't enough, i decided to make maddy a tutu for a very fun upcoming ballerina birthday party we have.  
i put some minnie mouse ribbon in it so she can wear it for her party as well!
thank you the cottage home, for the super easy tutorial!
