Owly Sneaky Peaky

Time to break out the sewing machine again!  

Here's a sneaky peaky at another little owl project for my daughter's birthday.  I'm making each kiddo a little stuffed owl using scrap fabrics!  So far this project hasn't cost me a penny!  Since I'm starting early I don't have an exact idea of how many kids will be coming.  I am making 17 and assuming I'll have a few less kids than that.  I'll post pics when they are complete!  Wish me luck!

Guess WHO is planning a party!

Birthday season is fast approaching!  Yes, I said birthday season!  All three of my kids' birthdays are coming up (not to mention Christmas).  I am officially in party planning mode.  I always start early and I try to make as much as possible at home as well as spend as little money as possible.
My daughter has decided she wants to combine her two favorite things together for her theme....Art and Owls.  She has been obsessed with owls since she was a baby and this will actually be her second birthday party with an owl theme.  She also is quite a little artist.  We are going to fuse the two together to create a party that screams Keely!  

I'm still in the beginning stages but thanks to pinterest, I have already found a ton of cute ideas to incorporate.  These little owl bags are going to hold the party favors.  They were completely made with materials I already had around the house and only took a few minutes to make.  My daughter even helped me, which makes it really fun for both of us.
