An American Girl in Paris

After lots of time planning, shopping, and preparing we had my daughters 7th birthday party this past weekend.

It turned out just as we had planned.

She wanted an American Girl party.  Simple and sweet enough but then we decided to add to the concept by creating a Paris backdrop to the party.  All of the girls brought their favorite dolls, we had crafts, dancing, "tea", and cake.  It was very sweet!

For party favors the girls were able to "shop" at the candy store and take home a wrapped eiffel tower cookie, they also got to take home their craft which is a wooden ornament that they decorated.  One last gift was a wooden frame that they can decorate and put a picture of themselves with their dolls.  

Most of the decorations were hand made.  The flowers were made out of tissue paper, each girl also received a paper American Girl bracelet, the banner was bought through Etsy, and all of the goodies were made by me. 

My good friend Karrah photographed the party so I can't wait to share some of those pictures.

It's time for a break

After much thought and consideration I have decided to take a little, much needed, break from this little blog.  I appreciate all of my followers and readers so much and am thrilled that I have had the opportunity to write a blog.

I started this blog over two years ago.  I have truly loved having a blog however it is a lot of work.  In the two years since I started blogging, up until the last few months, I have posted most every day.  That takes a lot of time and research and dedication.   While working on this project I also started an at home baking business that has taken off and demands all of my free time ( check out my Facebook page at Leslie's Flour Shop).   I simply don't have the time right now that this blog deserves.

So, I have decided to take the summer off.  I am going to try and reorganize my time and hopefully come back in the fall.

Thank you so much to all of you who have followed me and continued to read my blog and I hope in some way I brought something to your day.  It was a lot of fun.

I might pop in from time to time with some fun posts over the summer so I hope you will look for me.

Have a great summer!
