Baseball Baby Shower

Realized I never shared the Baseball invite I created for the shower or the shower

Mom was on top of it and finally took pictures at this shower. We host a lot of showers... we never have pictures of them... we are terrible about it. And we have a few really awesome ladies that do a lot of really great decorating. 
 How adorable are these cupcakes?
 This lovely young lady made them. She's awesome and adorable. We all dressed up in baseball fan attire for the shower- it was the most comfortable I have ever been at a shower. She actually is a wedding planner/coordinator (I am not sure I have her title right... ). Doesn't that sound like fun?!

I wish I could show you more pictures but for privacy I am going to keep it to the ones without people ... 
Hope you enjoyed!
PS I received the pictures from the photographer for Bella's 1st birthday... I will try to share that soon! SOOOO love the way her birthday came out!

1,2,3 strikes we're out....

Baby showers are so fun (so much better then wedding showers... gift giving wise of course). All of the little baby items are just too cute. Our most recent shower was baseball themed so I went back and forth on making  verse buying and if making what to make... so it finally occurred to me that a mobile would be really fun. 

I have a lot of anxiety giving people made items. Because I don't mind if they don't want it I just want them to give it back if they don't want it... please don't humor me if you don't like something I will get you something that you do like. SO anyway that has nothing to do with this that is just a public service announcement... 

I looked around and took several ideas and then added my own touches 

 It turned out very well. And just so you know mobiles are frustrating to photograph... it might have something to do with the fact that they are mobile... possibly
 The couple this is for are very big into baseball. Or at least he is and she humors him... not 100% on that one but she doesn't dislike it. They even had a baseball themed wedding. This maybe too much information I don't know I haven't blogged in so long that I am not sure what is worth saying. 
 The scoreboard is from a game that had meaning to him... I think the 2nd game of the 88 world series... I can't remember for sure I am trying to block out all memories having to stitching that board twice... 
 Really other then the scoreboard this was blast to make and came together fairly quickly. 
 I might even be willing to make one again but I will never make another scoreboard... 
 And of course not a complicated logo either... 
It was hard not to keep it. I have no personal use for it but I just loved the way it came together.
