3rd Blogiversary

 

3 year blogiversary

 

This years anniversary totally snuck up on me! Wow, I cannot believe that I have had this little ole blog for 3 years now. What a ride it has been. I ultimately do this because I love to create things. It is an added bonus to be able to share my creations with all of you. I cannot tell you how blessed I feel to have this little slice of the internet to call my own.

 

Thank you for your continued support of Young and Crafty. It means the world to me :)

 

In honor of this occasion, I am going to leave you with 5 things you may not know about me:

 

1. I love gum and chew it constantly. I seriously have three flavors to choose from in purse at this very moment.

2. This fall I am starting my internship. I have worked so hard to reach this goal. It is exciting and terrifying to finally be here!

3. I think about food constantly. As I am eating one meal, I am thinking about what my next meal will be. I’m working on the whole self-control when it comes to food thing. It’s very hard.

4. Out of every type of crafty thing I do, working with wood is my favorite.

5. My husband and I just celebrated our 4 year anniversary. Although it seems like only a tiny drop in the bucket, I have no clue where the time has gone!

Monkey Baby Shower

 

Monkey Baby Shower 4

 

One of my friends from school is having a baby and so a few of my classmates and I decided to throw her a shower. This is actually the first shower I have ever been involved with decorating for and hosting. It was so much fun to pull together!

 

We obviously went for a monkey theme of brown, green, and a hint of light blue. I will share the cupcake topper printable and food label printable that I made and used for the shower. I’m also going to share how to make a super easy cake stand for under $10. The diaper cake was made by my friend and her mom and turned out too cute!

 

Monkey Baby Shower 1

 

I whipped up a few onesies to hang from the window as well as the ever popular poofs. You can see the bicycle onesie HERE and the bow tie onesies will be posted soon.

 

Monkey Baby Shower 3

 

We had fruit kabobs with fruit dip, cookies and cream cupcakes, green sugar cookies, and an amazing bbq chicken salad that’s scooped up with tortilla chips. It was the perfect amount of food for a 4-6 p.m. shower.

 

Monkey Banner

 

I made this banner to hang from the mantle. This is where the mother to be opened her gifts so it gave a nice little backdrop. Don’t you just love that name?!

It was a very nice shower and I can’t wait to host another one! All I need is some pregnant friends :)
