More Baby Shower Things...

Oh my!!! i've been really slacking on posting on my blog.... ahhhh! but for the last week, i think i have a pretty good excuse.... as my baby shower approaches this Sunday, i've been busy busy putting things together.... sorry, for the lack of creations... i didn't have any time to play along with card challenges last week.... =( i'm feeling the withdrawals.... but i did get crafty in other means of creativity... and today i'm ready to share a few with you... so here's what i've been up to.... this pix here is some table fillers we'll have... i didn't make these, i just filled them with some lucky (strawberry flavored) candy... my aunty bought these premade from the craft store... i really wanted to dress them up with more of a baby theme, but time isn't as friendly with me... that's what i get for being so last minute.... haha!
here is one of a different type of table fillers... as in one of my previous post where i had washcloth lollipops inside, we changed it up a bit and are going to use these to hold the pens i've been making... same technique using recycable powder juice containers i've saved up... i covered it up using the DP i used for the invitations... this too is lacking an appropriate dressing, but again, i've just run out of time... maybe at the very last minute i'll be able to get some stamping on here...
this pix is a close up of the pens.... i glued blue bears to the bottom of the pen and used tissue paper (plain and shiny) and wrapped it around the pens... i'm sure you've seen the ones that people have flowers on it, but it is in celebration of a boy and flowers just didn't stick with me... LOL... not for a boy at the least... =D
baby shower favors... i used my sizzix pillow box die to cut out these cute little pillow boxes... again, i kept with the theme and used scraps of the same DP i used for the invites and created me own bands... then we printed some labels thanking those who will be joining us for the shower... and these are filled with chocolate kisses.... SWEET!!! hehe....
we've also been busy wrapping the prizes for the games.... here's a few that i was able to wrap up this weekend... all sorts of prizes that i hope are useful for those that win them... =D

there is still much more to do before the celebration... a few more prizes need to be wrapped... a few more favors need to be made... i ran out of bears for the pens and need to pick up a few more and finish those too... but all in all, everything is coming together really well... i'm super excited! especially to be among family and friends... once i can bump these out of the way, i can get back to card making... i really want to jump from this to that, but priority is the baby shower first!

wow how i've missed you all here in blogland... i know i haven't been the best at keeping up with your blogs lately and commenting, but i'm looking forward to checking out what i've missed once the craziness settles down a bit... please bare with me as i try and get things done... being almost 8 months pregnant with a huge belly, i'm just limited to what i can get done... and of course time plays a huge factor as well.... a few reminders before i head off into my day...

Lollipop Crafts DT Call ends tomorrow 7/27, so if you haven't already, go and check the blog out... and try out for the DT if you fancy another challenge...
