There's no party like a tea party.


I need to have more Tea Parties. Really. My daughters helped me host a tea party shower for my sweet daughter-in-law who is expecting a baby on Valentines Day. Raya had most of the inspiration and vision and took some great pictures. You can see more of them on her blog. 




We wanted to give our guests a thank you favor for coming, so I made some zipper flowers. I saw a demonstration on Martha Stewart using a glue gun, but I stitched them together and it worked just as well.  The original designer of the zipper flowers, Kate Cusack has designed some amazing zipper jewelry.



I also used my new die cutter to make tags.  I asked for it as a Christmas present and I love it. I could sit and cut out shapes all day.

We had a great time and are very excited about the baby. I know she is going to be a sweetie.
