A few updates...

Just a few updates for you:

Many of you have asked about my patriotic Wrinkle Ribbon bundles. Sorry.. but I ran out of supplies to make anymore. I will have more colors up in the shop within the next week or so though.

New Etsy shop items coming soon...wait til you see a new item I have in the works. I think you'll love this new concept I've come up with! Also, a few new kits...a few new aprons.....some beautiful new ribbon....cards and more. Plus Jordan has been making some adorable felt and fabric house collages. So sweet!

On a different note, I wanted to let you know that I am no longer designing for JustRite Stampers. I'd like to thank Kellie and the JustRite gang for everything during my stay with JustRite.

Be sure to check out my previous post from today, below.

And.......I'd love any suggestions for Josey's birthday party. She will be 13 and we can't decided on what to do for her party. I know some of you will have great ideas!

Hello Michelle:
I just placed my order from Papertrey...and your mason jar stamp set was on my order list! LOVE IT! I am so addicted to your Vintage Picnic...so I think this set will fit right in!!!
As for an idea for your daughters birthday....World Cup Soccer Party...each girl can make a banner or T-shirt representing a country and then have a soccer tournament with them! I also found this great website with lots of ideas...so knowing you...you could run with this...I love the nature themed one!!
Here is the site:
Have a great day!!!

Michelle for my son's 13th last year we did a huge family celebration. 50 people. Family from all over the East came to celebrate him becoming a teenager.
We had alittle worship service we all sang songs he picked out (we had a brochure about him) and family and friends talked about how much he has grown into a young man and a wish for his future. We then prayer over him. He was quite pleased with the event. The atmosphere was fun and we wanted to be a big event for him becoming a young man. We all loved it.

There is a place around me (MA) that does a ropes course and adventures course - I thought one of those would be great for a birthday party for my daughter. Ya know like team building stuff. Good luck! I know you'll come up with something great and we'll have some beautiful pictures to look at when you're done!

Michelle, my daughter Brooklyn will be 13 in Jul as well. Gramma has a pool and we are thinking about an evening BBQ/pool party with a Tiki theme. Will be watching this thread for more ideas.

What we did for my son's 13th is everything in thirteens. So he got thirteen balloons, we invited 13 people to his party, of course 13 candles, we had 13 people call to wish him a happy birthday, etc... It was fun!

My friend just did a party for her daughter who turned 12 and they went to the mall and did a super fun scavenger hunt. Find a napkin from Auntie Anne's, a perfume sample from Younkers, etc. Now I know you may not be super close to a mall but I bet you could come up with a cool idea on that theme of scavenger hunt - the girls split into teams and the team that got last had to do something embarassing like ask for directions to the food court while they were standing two stores away from it - heaven forbid! :o) ha ha! I'm sure whatever you come up with will be great but my 8 yr old daughter said, "Mom, I want to do Mercedes' birthday idea for MY birthday next year!" so you know it was a hit!

here's my suggestion for josey's party: watch several clips from Minute to Win It on YouTube and use the games they have there as your party games! she and her friends are competitive, so i think they'll get into it. you could have goodie bags for everyone--no real losers, although winners get bragging rights...

the games are fun, use household items, and are quick--60 sec. for each twosome competing. can't wait to hear what you do!

btw, i creamed my 15 yr old son in the "who can empty a box of tissues with 1 hand in the shortest amount of time" one. less than 30 seconds was my time.

My mom did a savenger hunt for my nephew. They had a ball. She took them up to a little mall which has signs outside. Put them in teams with a list to find. I believe she had prizes, which would be good for first complete-last-funniest answers not right-would be good. Then back to house with pizza and playing outside.
Another idea is a Wacky Dinner Party. She made up a meal and then each item on the list had a name reality to my school-could do anything. My friends loved it. Some got dessert with the green beans and sweet potates.
Good luck and have fun.

Don't mean to hijack but thanks so much Jenn for the Minute to Win it idea. These will be perfect for an all-night graduation party being planned for next spring!! WooHoo!

Do you have any neat fancy little tea/lunch places near you? We have one called Secret Garden where they have high tea. It would be for her and a few friends to put on pretty summer dresses, enjoy pedi/manicures and have a fancy luncheon. Can't wait to get my hands on your Friendship Jar package!

Hi! I thought of you the other day when I was flipping through a magazine. In a photo they used an old wheelbarrow for a cooler. They filled it with ice and stocked it with beverages. So cute! As soon as I saw it I thought, "That's something Michelle would do! So creative!"

I love seeing all your decoration and party ideas and the photos! Keep 'em coming!

Have a beautiful weekend!

I would like to add a nomination for the scavenger hunt!! Or what about having them create something, like a bookmark from clear cardstock or some magnets from Papertrey dies?? Whatver you decide, I'm sure they will have a blast!

I know that I am very late weighing on this, but I wonder if you might want to do a Model Birthday party. The invitation could let each girl know they should bring some "dress up" clothes and you could dig thru some of your vintage finds as well. Ahead of time you could do a quick blank portfolio for each girl using your fun sketches notebook project. Set up a catwalk on your porch with very fun lights (and yes, I can absolutely see the watering cans and the little red bicycle playing key roles!). During the party the girls could dress up, taking turns struting their stuff on the runway while you play great music and snap photos! Later as the girls were eating cake and opening presents print the pictures and slip them into their "portfolio" as the gift.
