Party time

Both my girls have their birthdays in August (along with my husband, mom, cousin, nephew, father in law and there are name days and anniversaries too in August! It’s a celebration packed month!) but we’re usually away for vacation during that time.

“A” turns 12 this year which also means she is finished with elementary school. Tho many of her classmates will reunite in Gymnasium (the first three years of high school) not every of her friends will attend the same school. A also wanted a party by the sea but that was a wee bit impossible to organize so I offered to whip up a beach-themed party in our backyard before school let out so she could have her friends with her.

The invitations were color-coded for boys and girls in the shape of a flip-flop. (My girl was skeptical about the boys liking the flip-flops but they were received with exclamations of “cool!” and “awesome”!)

A quick project

 School-year is nearing its end so my 8year old daughter requested a fun favor for all her classmates.

Because reading is essential (among other things) in getting better at spelling I whipped up a quick bookworm themed bookmark.

I chose not to ink or pop-dot anything, after all these bookmarks are intended for kids to use.  It was meant to be cute and practical. I hope it serves its purpose.

For the girls with googly eyes and the boys plain but as my daughter requested “girls” and “boys” both should have pink mouths and black noses! 🙂

Details are still missing but the work is not done yet! 🙂 

I’ll be back!
