A few months back I saw Pinterest mentioned on a blog I read and because I am a total follower I rushed over to join. I was not really sure about it and was a bit of a slow starter. But once more of my friends joined and we are all linked together it. is. awesome. Basically it is a virtual pin board, so when you come across something on a website you want to remember to make/bake/wear/buy you just “pin it” to a board on your Pinterest page.
Once I started planning Zach’s third birthday I really got the hang of it. I decided to use the theme “Little Man” so I needed samples of little man parties and all sorts of mustache themed suggestions. And I was not disappointed! I spotted an invite and party favor tags from Sarah at Create Studio and wanted to use them immediately. She mentioned in her post that she would share them and graciously did so. Did I mention that I do not know Sarah? That upon reading that she would share them I emailed her and she sent them right over like the awesome stranger she is? Because both of those are true. World wide web – what did I do without you? (Do NOT answer “talked to my husband”… because that is also true)
Here is the invite I designed
stole based on her favor tags:
I am totally geeked out on planning all the things to go with the theme but also enjoy that I am hindered by the Children’s Museum restriction on no hanging things on walls or ceilings. Let’s face it, I need some boundaries.
