First, up...I gave my blog a favicon! Yay! Unfortunately, I guess because I use Safari as my web browser, it doesn't show up for me. But, I looked my blog up on IE and it showed up there. Fun stuff!

On to the topic!

Yesterday I finished Chloe Jo's birthday outfit! Eek! It turned out so much cuter than I even imagined in my head! I am so excited about it and CJ loves it! She came into the kitchen when I was making the skirt...stopped really quickly and said "WOW! I yuv it!" and then ran over and gave it a huge hug. It. Was. Adorable. And totally worth the time it has taken to make the outfit! Without further mumbo jumbo, here is the unveiling of the birthday outfit!

I love bows and thoroughly enjoyed creating this Strawberry Shortcake one!
I then made this Strawberry-inspired shirt. If you haven't seen the modern Strawberry, google her and you'll understand this shirt. And remember I said "inspired."
And what is a 3 year old girls birthday party without a tutu??? Every princess needs a tutu (unless you don't like tutu's...or your princess doesn't like tutus...or tutus are just not yur thang...). Anywho...
And what is a Strawberry Shortcake inspired outfit without green and white striped tights? Not good enough I say! These tights are pretty loose on little skinny minny, but I'm going to just go with it.
And sparkly shoes to top the outfit, bottom the outfit off? I tried to find pink sparkly shoes. I did find some. I just didn't want to pay the price for them. What can I say? I'm cheap. Silver is fun, too. I like them so much I would like a pair in my size!
And I think Chloe Jo loves her outfit. She keeps bringing it to me saying "Dis is for my paaaaaahtay!" She especially loved modeling it for me. Such a girly-girl!
And as a side-note, did you all see the ribbon topiaries in my last post? How cute are they? This poor one is bald right now. I have to go get more ribbon to fill in the very top, but I think they turned out cute!
And one last thing: A couple commenters asked for tutorials on making bows and on the diaper cake I made. I'll try to get to those soon!

Happy Thursday!
