A Rockin' Baby Shower and Diaper Wreath 2

One of the girls in the neighborhood is having a girl next month. Several other girls and I all pitched in and threw her a baby shower last week. The theme was Rock n' Roll. Below are a couple of pictures.

I got this diaper wreath idea from my girlfriend Kristen. I blogged about it here. This was the first one I've made and I loved how it turned out! :)
I'm sharing it on a couple o LINK PARTIES! Check them out!

We set up a candy bar for guests to take treats home with them after the party.

One gal made a couple of banners. Didn't they turn out so cute! I think she should have her own etsy shop.

Lots of pink goin' on in here! A friend of the mom-to-be made this FABULOUS cake and another made the cupcakes. So cute.

Here's a closer look at both.

I ordered some iron-on appliques from a couple of etsy shops. The one that had a quality product and I would recommend to a friend was  DIYAPPLIQUES. I put the appliques onto onesies and we hung them from the staircase using ribbon and zebra print clothespins.

We had an area on the gift table where guests could write little notes to the baby.

Here's the guest of honor. Hope she had an amazing morning and felt incredibly loved.

This morning, Dan took the baby for a few minutes after bringing me a hot cup of coffee - I do LOVE that man. I took the treasured time to do a bit of blog hopping and check out a couple of my all time favorites. I was NOT disappointed. For those of you who have a bit more time than me or have figured out how to craft and blog while taking care of a home, a husband and a baby...let me share with you some of the latest projects of some of my "craft idols." :) 

Brown Paper Packages made these awesome sewn books! I SO want to make some!!! 

I think I'm going to have to hire a babysitter once a week just to get my craft fix in. :D

Amy from The Idea Room made this AWESOME headboard and bedframe for her daughter's room!

These women never cease to amaze me. I LOVE their blogs. Now I just need more hours in a day with two hands free! :D One day my baby will have scheduled naptimes and then....craft room here I come!
