Invitations from a few years ago when Charlie (oldest) had a Barbie themed birthday party:
A gorgeous personalized invitation made by her graphic designer Mommy.
Elly just turned 5 and chose to have a Barbie themed party. Did she get a one of a kind Mommy original?? Unfortunately, she got hand written note cards from Dollarama sent out a mere 3 days before the party. I had the best of intentions, but couldn't make it happen.
For Charlie's birthday I stayed up late the night before hand making this Barbie cake especially for my baby:
I may be creative, but I've got NOOO SKILLZ in the kitchen. This cake with all it's curly q's and details was quite a labour of love for me.
Elly's Barbie cake was purchased. Beautiful, but the only effort put into it by me was writing the cheque.
And here's some irony - while I sit here writing this post (at work..don't tell my boss) I get a text from the babysitter:
Elly says, looking at pictures on the fireplace: Know what picture I HATE?? This one with Charlie and mom because I love mom so much.
Mark my words, there will be a picture of me and Elly on the fireplace by the end of the day!
