First Birthday for Miss A!

So Birthday parties and well any parties are kinda my "thing".  I absolutely adore planning them, putting them on, and pouring over pictures later.  I have had 11 years of boy parties which have been fun but when we found out that we were expecting a girl I was over the moon!  Girl parties are SOOOOOOOOO much fun and have SOOOOOOOO many possibilities.

For her 1st Birthday I wanted to do a "crown" theme.

Starting with the Invitation is a good start kinda sets the stage for the party.  
Here is How Miss A's turned out
These were the sites that I used for inspiration.
For the invitations I used this blog as an inspiration HERE     
For the monogram I used this store as inspiration HERE

On to the PARTY!

I did get really carried away with Pinterest this time.  You can check out my "Birthday Girl" page and grab some more ideas there.

These tassels were a wonderful texture and a pop of color.
HERE is a really great tutorial on how to make them

Everyone loves a good "Cake Smash"
Miss A didn't really get into it though she was too proper

 She ended up trying to touch the candle though but we did catch her in time

 She was a little hesitant about trying to touch the cake again though

Eventually she got it...

I Adore this face... "You are NOT going to take this away" 

As the party winded down so did our sugar highed baby and it was time to take a nap.  As I was changing her to put her to bed when my mom snapped this last picture of her and it was my absolute favorite of the day

Hope this inspires you!

A FIRST year... A LONG year... A NEW year

A FIRST year...  

This year was a year full of FIRSTS for me.  I have had my FIRST and only daughter Audrey who is my source of inspiration for my FIRST "couture" clothing line BABY ROOST.

Trying to find clothes that would grow with my child throughout her first year of life was a HUGE challenge.  Trying to find clothing that were neutral colored and timeless was quite another.  As a personal goal in my life I am trying to be more conscience of cost, shopping and supporting local stores and decreasing the "footprint" that babies create.  In trying to keep with these goals I was forced to look outside the box for her wardrobe.  I started gathering bed linens, bed skirts, old skirts that had tears or were outdated, curtains, pillowcases, basically anything that was neutral and pretty.  I wanted to create patterns that I knew would be able to grow with Ms. A throughout her first year.  What could start out as a cute dress could then become a top.  I received a wonderful response from people when I took her out in public.  They would ask where I got it and how beautiful it was.  BABY ROOST was then born.  A clothing line that sprung from my love of all things vintage, lace, ruffles, recycled and neutral in color.

A LONG year...
This year was a LONG year...  Do I really need to say more...  Oh but I will... I have a toddler and a budding "tween" (kid between 10-12).  Although my business is very important to me my family life means more.  Taking a step back this year has been hard for me.  Learning to balance my life again as mommy, wife, business owner, and not to be forgotten being a friend to those closest to me has been a challenge that I didn't expect.  I knew in the back of my mind that having another baby was going to change things.  In case I hadn't processed the fact many of my friends would remind me throughout my pregnancy that I would have to "slow down".  But I had gotten so used to the way things were.  I thought I could keep going at that pace.

An 11 year old boy has their challenges but all in all he's a great kid.  Being a wife... well no one says that's it's easy, but having someone to stand by you is amazing.  Being a friend has become as natural as well lets say walking... as you DO need to learn some basic things about friendship but it's not as fundamental as breathing lol!  Being a business owner was a bit more of a challenge for me but I've hobbled along and enjoyed the journey.  Putting them all together and creating a "healthy life" has been hard this year.  Make's the days seem just a little bit LONG sometimes.

A NEW year!
So as I sit down here and try to iron out my 2014 show schedule for this NEW year.  I am taking all of these things that I have learned throughout this year into account.  I have decided that I will be downsizing my show schedule this year.  My hope is to launch a NEW web based business sometime within 2014 to fill the void of having to let go of some of the shows that I love.

So SALUTE! to the NEW Year...

Be sure to check out my 2014 calendar page for the events that I will be participating in this year.

Thank you so much for your encouragement and support,

Roost Reimagined

Farm Chicks Set-up

Yes it is MIDNIGHT on Thursday the day before set up for my 3rd year at Farm Chicks.  Every year I am stressed trying to get my product out the door and onto the floor of the show.  The oh man I forgot this and dawggonnit this got broke thats.  I have a general feeling of how it all will look in the end.  But his year we really planned the details out.  Tent piping, drapes, fabric swathing, matching tablecloths, yummy linens, burlap, and chippy paint goodness.  I'm not sure if I am setting myself up for failure or if being prepared will make it flow a bit more smoothly I just know I've got a beautiful rosy cheeked 5 month old in tow along with her very mature and helpful big brother of 10 that I have to simultaneously watch/entertain/feed and set up with.  Fortunately I have my husband, mother, and as a HUGE bonus my dad that are all going to be there to support me and my little chicks.

So yes I can't sleep as details swirl around in my brain. Well since it's now 12:30 I guess I should probably at least attempt to sleep as I have to get up in 4 1/2 hours.  So until later,
