it's my birthday! let's party!
It's my birthday today! And guess what? I have a fun little party hat printable for you that you can download and make!

It's such an easy project - it literally takes 30 seconds to make and fun for the whole family! As you can see here Paul and I managed to get Maggie dog and Mabel cat to participate in the fun (but Brian cat wasn't having any of it!)


PLEASE NOTE - for best quality do not print using the printer icon on the widget above. Instead click the arrow download button. This will save the high res file to your computer and you will have beautiful party hats! :)
Links to this freebie printable on pinterest, twitter, facebook etc are very much appreciated! Spread the word! 

And there's more! To celebrate my birthday I created paper cupcake favor/gift boxes! I am so excited about these!

Remember when you were little and on your birthday in school and your mom would bring cupcakes for the whole class? And who doesn't love a cupcake? I could eat them everyday! These are sweet little cupcake favor boxes that you can print and make, and the best part -- they are calorie free!!

I created the cupcake flags with text that you can change right in your PDF so you can use them for any occasion -- birthday, baby showers etc, or I think they look cute as whimsical home decor. I have mine in our kitchen! These cupcakes are now available in my Etsy store here!

Don't miss any freebies! Make sure to sign up for my email list here:
