It's official... Shea is now 1 years old! He is a big guy now. He loves to read his books, play cars, climb the stairs, get chased and play his music instruments.
This weekend we had a monkey theme birthday party for him. We had all hands on deck! Here is my dad helping out by putting the goody bags together (banana bread, finger puppet and chocolate monkey sucker).
My mom found a book that had monkey cupcakes in it and here is how ours turned out! Not too bad!
I bought the invitation, banner, gift bag tags, thank you cards and other printable items off of Frog Prince Paperie. I sent the files to Staples and got them printed there. The banner is amazing printed! It is definitely a keeper!
Overall, his birthday was great! I have had a wonderful year getting to know this special little dude and can't wait to see what this next year holds for him!

A friend of mine was searching my blog and came across this bag that I had made. She requested one for her knitting supplies and since I owed her a hand made craft, I agreed. However, having a 11 month old really restricts the amount of time I am able to sew. I was finding that when I did have the time, the sewing machine would wake him up from his naps. So, I moved the sewing machine downstairs. How do you manage to find time to sew/craft?
That still didn't really help! I have been trying to finish the bag all week and basically I have done the outer shell and the liner:
I still need to add the inside pockets and the straps. One day it will be done!
