A Party for Charlie


This past weekend, I went to a baby shower for the fabulous Tia of Hey Lady and Christopher and Tia, and I was super excited for three reasons.Reason #1: Spoiling itty bitty little babies is just about my most favorite thing in the world (second only to eating Butterfinger Brownie Blast brownies from A Sugar Affair).

Reason #2: Tia's baby shower was a dressy-uppy party and I finally had an excuse to wear my tacky-fabulous faux crystal chandelier earrings and holographic eye glitter.

Reason #3: Tia is well known across the Etsy forums and blog circuit as being the most food allergy-ridden person on the planet and I couldn't wait to try her intensely complicated - though surprisingly delicious - allergy free food.

I was not disappointed.

Gracie was quite excited to help me get ready for the baby shower. Besides artfully gift wrapping Charlie's present, in which Gracie drew a lovely picture to attach to the bag, she also helped me with my make-up, though I suspected that she was mostly excited to cover herself in my eye glitter and shimmering lipstick.
The party was fun. It was also nice to get out of the house for some chatting, snacking on allergy-free chocolate chip cookies, grasshopper cookies and pumpkin maple bars, and ooohing and aaahhhing over tiny baby boy things.

And I got to pull out my sewing machine and decorate little baby onesies for the first time since shutting down my old Etsy baby boutique. I missed that!

Here are the little embroidered felt appliqued onesies I made for Charlie. I wont lie - they are completely adorable.

I also had fun with some artwork just for Charlie and his big sister Eleanore. I'm really into classic tattoo art and got to play around with some illustrations.

Thanks for the invite, Tia and good luck in the next 5 weeks while you wait for Charlie to come.

xoxo,
