As I write this, I'm dead tired and basically running on adrenaline. I'm in the busiest time at work, but I've been staying up late every night to make Kendall and your loot bags for your daycare birthday parties. Never have kids with birthdays 1-day apart! #deadtired #whydoidothistomyself
Yes, I could have gone to the dollar store to pick up loot bag items in their party section and I did do that, but nothing was good enough for my taste. My occupation is a graphic designer/art director so I can't put my name on something that is not up to par for my liking. I decided that I would again, hand make something. Of course, once I start something I go all out. I hardly got any sleep this week, but it was all worth it. You were so excited to see the finished product and super excited to go to daycare this morning to give them all out to your friends.
|Just a close-up of some of the washi tape patterns. Aren't they pretty stacked like that?|
|Instead of just plain, blank pages, I printed grid paper and lined paper to give it more of a custom feel.|
I also added a page at the beginning where it had a box that you had to draw a picture of your family.
|As well as the custom notebooks, I added a bag of flavoured popcorn- white cheddar popcorn or butter|
popcorn to the loot bags.
|If I had more time, I would have added one more thing to the loot bags, but I didn't have anything left in|
me to design something else.
|I love the Ikea-brand ziplock bags (purple bag behind the notebook). I covered the Ikea logo with the|
tags of all the names of the kids. This is your loot bag.
|This was you after I picked you up around 3:30pm. You guys were all eating the cupcakes when I picked |
you up. When you got the car, you declared that this year was the best birthday of all.
|Waiting on our front porch for daddy and Kendall to come home. BTW, since Kendall's birthday is on |
Monday, I will be giving out Kendall's loot bags then. Yours falls on a Sunday this year, so I had to do your
birthday party today.
|While we were waiting for daddy and Kendall, you enjoyed eating your popcorn.|
|Welcome home Kendall!|
|She had show and share day at daycare where she had to bring in a teddy bear so she brought Muk Muk, |
one of her large entourage of stuffed animals that she carries around these days.
