Baby Shower Success!

Today was the big day! It was Heidi's baby shower (and Heidi & Bob's 1st year anniversary)! Above is the picture of the invitation for the "Feather Her Nest" baby shower theme. It was so fun to decorate! Our house became a vision in teal green (and yes, it is teal green and not blue...for those thinking that Heidi knows the sex of the baby, but just happened to neglect to tell everyone). Instead of a card, we asked guests to bring a book for the baby. We started quite a library for baby!

Below are a few of the decorations. Before you say, "Lizzie, you're so talented", you must know that Andrea (a.k.a. the best mother-in-law in the world) did most of it. I basically provided the location. The house was simply beautiful! We had such a fun time and everything went so smoothly. Can't wait for that little one to arrive!

In other news: Here is the evolution of my painting...I hate to say that it is finished, because there are things that I'd like to touch up, but I doubt that I'll end up working on it any never know.

Lizzie is waay to modest! This was Lizzie's vision, right down to Sue's birdhouse, and when everything was in place it was gorgeous! And as they used to say in the olden days, "a good time was had by all" :)
Lizzie has sooo much going on right now with her job, two Art Shows, Masters classes and all of the responsibilities of Motherhood, and yet she was still able to coordinate a lovely shower for Heidi. I was happy to get to play with papers, scissors, glue...and oh yeah and Feathers!
