Day One: 31 Days of Writing & Crafting

July, October and November are birthday months in our house. This week I am preparing for Youngest's birthday party. Here is the design for his invitations that I made this morning using I love Canva and hope to share a couple of free printables with you this month as part of this post a day challenge.

As you can tell, Youngest is having a doggy themed party this year. I have an 11X14 slab cake baking in the oven and my challenge tomorrow is to replicate the dog and his house from the invitation onto the top of the cake in icing. Wish me luck!

I feel like I should write more about the banners that I ordered through Etsy, the food and the decorations but I must save something else to talk about tomorrow! And, yes, preparing for a party ranks high on the crafting stage in our house as I have 1) create my own digital birthday invitations, 2) hand carve a birthday stamp for every party here as we use brown paper bags to be gentle on the environment and the stamps make the bags a little more festive and 3) it's my blog and I decide what is a craft and what isn't;)!

See you tomorrow.
