If you ask my kids about their childhood when they are much older, I want them to say that it was magical. I want them to remember that I went all out on things and I tried to make their lives special. I want them to know through my actions and my words that I loved them.
I had the best time planning and making things for this Ladybug Party. I'm so thrilled that Mallory selected this theme because I fell in love with all things ladybug. I've decided that every years theme will be our theme for the year....we will find more ladybug things and all of the items I made or bought for the party will now decorate her bedroom.
Needless to say, I believe that the party was a hit and if the smile on this little girl tells you anything...it's that she was completely happy and full of joy.
I'm still recooperating from the party, putting the house back together and waiting for the HGTV people to stop by today and tell me that I won the HGTV Dream Home in New Mexico so today I'm going to show you were it all started....The Invitations.

I found something similar on Etsy and they were ridiculously expensive and you had to buy 10 and I only needed 4. I knew that I could make these and it would be more special that way. I also decorated the envelopes with a small ladybug from a Martha Stewart punch that I bought at Michael's with a 60% off coupon! WOOT!
Come back tomorrow to see the party.....
