…a walk on the WILD side~

First of all I have to tell you…my computer has been slowly dying…one cyber cell at a time.  We finally had to take it off life support the other day after a power surge.  This gave me the extra incentive I needed to hurry up and get my awesome new racecar of a computer up and running on our home network.  We’ve been a little bit out of commission while figuring things out.  I’m extremely happy to say that I’ve been able to do this entire post, downloading/uploading/editing pics and video, completely from the new compy!  Let me tell you…it’s FAST!  I think I love it, lol.  Now I just have to get all the programs and drivers up to date and then all will be good…

My Niece’s baby shower was yesterday and we had a lot of fun!  She received a ton of really lovely baby gifties…one of which was crafted by me! 😉  Here’s some pics of the box that I painted and mod-podged with the cute stickers on Friday:

Monkey LoveBox closeupHer baby shower theme was “Jungle Animals” and you would not believe the tons of super cuteness out there for babies along this idea! 


The monkey was from my daughter Megan…she wanted the soon to be arriving addition to the family, Tristan, to start early with the monkey love, lol! 😉

The clouds were added using a pouncer brush and just tap-tapping away until they were the shape desired.  It really gives it a 3-D look, doesn’t it?

I’m going to have to make more of these little boxes…it was kinda hard to let it go, lol.  But I knew it was going to a good home, and will be used and loved. 🙂

My other Niece, Katie, organized the shower, and let me tell you…it was such a fun time!  We had a relay race with baby dolls, diapers, peanut butter sandwiches and a clothesline!  My sister, Tammy, beat me at the final stretch, lol!  I have to chalk that up to her having way more recent baby experience than me, what with being a new grandma, and all!  (hehehe..just had to get my comeuppance, lol!)

Jungle CakesKatie, her brother, Chris, and his girlfriend Mesato, created these super cute jungle animal cupcakes…just check out this genius!  So fantastic!  I really think they should think about a catering business on the side…



 To top off the night…what do you think we all do as soon as the three of us girlies walk in the door from the shower??  We play with the helium balloons, of course! What else, lol?  I think you might get a real kick out of this video…you’ll see us in a whole different light, LOL!  😉 **edited to add: please don’t think we condone drug use in any form! hehehe…just a little quirky humor…

Hope you had fun watching!  I’ll be posting about our loomy mystery project part 2 tomorrow, so stay tuned!
