Lilly's Birthday Scrapbook...Finally!

Lilly turned 3 years old 8 months ago and I have been dying to make her a scrapbook to commemorate her celebration at Disney World. Last weekend I finally finished it. It was so much fun to make. I have been collecting fun Disney papers and embellishments for months now. I ended up doing my journaling in the form of a story about "Princess Lilly's Birthday". That was kind of Lilly's idea. She wanted the book to be a story. I thought that was great and I went with it. I have to add that the best part of making this scrapbook was that Lilly participated too. During one of my scrapbooking sessions I gave her some scraps of paper, stickers, crayons, and a glue stick. She sat across from me and worked for an hour! I was so impressed. She said "Mommy will you put my page in the scrapbook?" Of course I will! The next day she asked me to put it on my blog. Can you believe 3 year olds these days know about blogs :)
I punched holes in Lilly's birthday cards and added them to the end of the book...

And last but not least Lilly's first scrapbook page...

It will be placed in the middle of the scrapbook right next to Snow White. That is where she insisted it go :)

Meant to Be Hoodie

This fabric embellished hoodie was my weekend projectLast Thursday I was rummaging through my drawer of clothes that I have collected and saved for sewing projects. I found this girls shirt at a thrift store a while ago and I bought it because I loved the fabric. The shirt was way too big for Lilly and way too small for me but I knew I could use it for a project one day.
Later on that same day Lilly and I headed for one of our twice a week trips to Super Target. I was browsing the sale racks and found this baby... It was the exact same color as the background of the thrift shirt and it was 4 Bucks! It was so meant to be. I snatched it up and could not wait to get home and figure out what I was going to do. I had seen an awesome embellished hoodie here not to long ago made by Alisa Burke. She was inspired by some cardigans from Anthropologie. So I decided to cut out the front of the thrifted shirt and applique it to the hoodie.And speaking of meant to be...look at this dress on Lilly... I found it at a thrift store last week, it is a Lilly Pulitzer, excellent condition, it is her size and it was 99cents! Loving it!

Lion Softies

Last week I made these lions for my two nieces. They were so much fun to make. The pattern called for yellow fabric and fleece but that wasn't fun enough for me so of course I made my lions pink and green...you know I love those colors :) The pattern for the lions came from this book that I picked up at the Dollar Tree a few months ago. I was so excited about this find. There are some really cute ideas in this book.

Happy Weekend ~Molly

I took a trip to Anthropologie yesterday and fell in love... It is the Capri Blue Volcano candle! It is divine! Am I the last anthropologie obsessed person to discover this?
I have bought a number of candles from anthro, all of which I love, but this one takes the cake and I don't know how I didn't discover this sooner. I think it's because I have the Capri Blue candle in "Island Orchid" so I assumed that was the only scent that came in the blue jar at anthro. I don't know, but you must get this candle. I have already instructed my husband that he must gift me one of these candles for every holiday :)
Have a great week! ~Molly
