Violet Imperfection

I know...I promised to blog more.  I lied.  

My little girl is already six months old!

I have started a new blog and I hope you will join me over there, I promise I blog regularly.  It's about being a Mama, crafting, cooking and trying to teach my daughter life is beautiful imperfections and all.

Hope to see you there!

Applique Baby Bibs

To say I have babies on the brains would be the understatement of the year.  I am anxiously awaiting until we get to know what our little baby is, boy or girl I will be happy.  I just want to know already!

A couple weekends ago I decided to applique some baby bibs.  I was pretty happy with them.  I haven't appliqued too often, I think this was only my third applique project.

It's been awhile...or 5 months.

I have been neglecting this blog.  I have my reasons....switched jobs, focusing on losing weight and exercise, battling infertility, diagnosed with Polycystic Ovary Syndrome along with infertility issues with my husband, fractured my foot in two places and oh....found out we were pregnant!

Yeah.  I've been busy.  

Long story short, in July we were at the doctors and had the infertility diagnosis, I spent the month of July and beginning of August very upset and emotional.  On August 4th I fell in a parking lot and fractured my foot in two places, the next week feeling sick from the pain medicine my mother convinced me to take a pregnancy test.  Turns out we became pregnant the week we were told we would probably need to have IVF treatments to get pregnant.  


I'm almost 13 weeks pregnant and with the cooler weather coming and baby planning I am in a seriously crafty mood!  I hope to get this blog up and running again and posting on a regular schedule.  I'd also like to get a link party started but we shall see how that all goes.

I hope you are all still around and stick with me as I get back into the Simple Sweetness swing of things.

Marc's 30th Birthday Party

I've been seriously slacking on this blog and I apologize for that.  My goal is to hopefully post at least ONCE a week from now on.  I've been so busy with Marc's party that was last weekend and just life in general that I have had zero time to be crafty.  

Marc's party went off with a bang.  It was really great.  I wanted to share some pictures.

Photo Collages of Marc

 Peanut Butter & Jelly Cupcakes, they were a big hit!

I almost didn't have time to make his banner but I did it the morning of the party.
I'm very happy with the way it turned out.  
It is made with orange and tan burlap, brown string and on the end are yellow & orange curling ribbons.
You can't see them very well but I put little loops in between the flags, it turned out REALLY well and super easy to make.

Some of the desserts and sweets, I never got a chance to take a picture of the other foods.
You can see the burlap table cloth, they worked out really well, gave the party a "man-ly" feel. 

One of the mustaches on a stick.

Marc and another mustache on a stick.  
I'm glad I made these, they were fun to goof around with.

These are the two guys that won the "Lip Sweater" contest.
They both grew their mustaches.
You can't see the mustache cups very well that I made but it's the only picture I have of them.
We filled them with candy from our childhoods.  Gushers, Rock Candy, Bubblegum Cigarettes, all that fun stuff.

Overall the party was a success.  It was my first party like this I have thrown at my own house so it was a learning process but it turned out great, except for the fact that I made WAY too much food!
