sneak peak ;)

ella's birthday is lurking just around the corner...i have been planning for what feels like forever...so now i feel like it's getting down to crunch time..ordering, creating, more buying, planning, invitations (my sister, melissa is making them..and i am so excited for them..they are sooo cute!..stay tuned for a pic when she is done)...ahhh..the list goes on and on. i have soooo many ideas swirling around in my head, i get dizzy just thinking about it..haha! anyway..the other day i started working on ella's birthday banners, and my second set of lollipops. i have discovered it's just easier doing a little bit here, and a little bit there. and you would think i would be doing all of this in my craft room..but no, this is exactly why a big island in the kitchen comes in handy..haha! i guess you learn to adapt when you have kids! when luke is sleeping..ella and i go to work on crafts! :) anyway..here's a look around our craft day.  keep in mind..nothing in these pics are finished...that will have to be revealed on the party day! ;)
this is my first attempt at making banners...and i totally entered a zone and was having so much fun making them!
gotta love the mess it makes...
i found this basket at an antique store a couple of weeks back.  it has come in handy toting around all of my crafting goods.  love it!
the start of one...
candy everywhere! ;)

these are so easy to make..some styrofoam..cellophane..ribbon..dowel..and voila! :)
