This past weekend I had the privilege to help with a special baby shower. ？It was held for my friend and ？neighbor’；s daughter. ？ Yes， she’；s having a baby boy! ？When you are planning a baby shower or any partycheap throw pillow covers， I think you should try to have a theme. ？Last year I held a shower for a couple in our church and their nursery theme was Raggedy Ann and Andy –； so I carried that ？theme over to the shower. ？You can see more about that shower here.？ Today， I want to share some of the details for this fun boy baby shower!accent pillow case baby canvas rug
You can make a chalkboard with any frame you have on hand by cutting a piece of thin plywood or even foam core board to fit the frame and then paint it with chalkboard paint. ？I have used both the brush or roll on type of chalkboard paint and the spray chalkboard paint. ？For both chalkboards in this post， I used the spray paint. ？ Search yard sales for old frames or dresser mirrors that can be used for larger chalkboards. ？I found both frames used in today’；s post at yard sales this past year and each were about $5.
This boy baby shower was a huge success!？ It was a fun day and the soon-to-be Mom went home with several SUV’；s loaded down with gifts for her baby boy! ？ A baby is a blessing from the Lord and a baby shower is a way for us to bless a first time Mom!
Here are a few other showers that I’；ve planned or helped with!

I cannot express the overwhelming feeling of accomplishment one gets after hand assembling and addressing invites, over two hundred! I feel as though half my to-do list has been triumphantly checked off. What a task that guest list was! I think deciding who to invite has been the hardest part of planning thus far! But thanks to my awesome fiance and maid of honor helping to narrow down the list, collect addresses, stuff envelope after envelope, and even licking the gross strip on the back to seal them (why do they make them that way anyways?), we are DONE! Oh sweet victory. I couldn't help but share the finished product with you all…
If predictions for this year are to be believed, then things will become much more palatable – if you’ll pardon the pun. Amongst the unmistakable and diverse colour explosion this season, purple and pink, or specifically purplish-pink blends such as Pantone’s Radiant Orchid for example, are tipped to be the hottest hues of the Spring Summer 2014 season for both fashion and interiors. Soft lilac, lavender and pink shades will create warm and cosy environments and vivid pinks and deeper purple pinks and tints will provide perfect bold accents.
In August, we suddenly had a heat wave in the Yukon (in northern Canada). Normally summer is almost over at this time of year, and when I went shopping for a sleeveless top, all I could find were down-filled vests and jackets!
