“Crack Me” Egg Invitations

These egg invitations are great for any kind of party!

I have made them for a cute baby shower, shared the idea for a friend’s wedding, and now created a handful to invite our closest friends and family to Jaxson’s Dino-Mite celebration!

STOMP! CHOMP! ROAR! Jaxson is turning 4! Hooray!

Materials Needed:

Step 1: Blow out the eggs. This is something that I personally did and can take some time to do. I will have to talk about the full details of that process another time, but basically you punch a small hole on both ends of the egg and blow all the yolk out through one side. You can buy pre-blown eggs from several sellers online. To fit the invitation into the egg, I had to make the hole a little larger, and the invites were roughly 2in x 4 in and were rolled to fit in the hole.

Step 2: Fold the boxes. Quick and easy to fold! They were the perfect size for my project.

Step 3: Stamp your message on the inside of the lid. Or outside! The great thing about these Kraft Boxes is you can decorate them in millions of ways! For this specific project I stamped “Crack Me” that way our party guests would have to crack the egg to find the invitation.

Step 4: Add a small bit of Deco Moss to the box to be the cushion for your egg.

Step 5: Close the box with moss and egg inside, tie the twine or string around your box to hold it all in place!

HELLO AGAIN!

i’m back. i’ve been kicking myself in the arse telling myself to get back to what i love doing but the holidays caught me like i catch my little human pulling cookies from the cookie jar.red handed. i have been flying around in a mad frenzy trying to prepare for Thanksgiving and now Christmas! i cannot even believe it is almost 2017!

utah is rad. some of the most beautiful places are right in our backyard! i love watching the seasons change and being able to take in the most amazing scenery around us!

Day At The Pumpkin Patch

this time of year is seriously my favorite
who doesn’t love fall

jax loves going to the pumpkin patch

wagon rides, animals, slides, food, lots of pumpkins, and playing in the dirt
what little boy wouldn’t enjoy that

the pumpkin patch is a huge field full of discovery
our favorite tradition is going to find the perfect pumpkins

we were a little late going this year
normally we go the first day it opens, but i have been so busy!

i look forward to little moments like these every year and i always make sure to capture the memories!

Birth Story: BrynLee

birth is very raw and unedited.

today was such a humbling experience, being able to share the birth of my niece BrynLee.

being able to witness two amazing people become parents was amazing. and yes, i cried!

being a mother to my own little, i had a deep heartfelt emotion for the birthing mother. it brought back all the feels i had when bringing Jaxson into the world 3 years ago.

i cannot thank them enough for allowing me to be apart of their special day.

it was beautiful. it was perfect. it was nothing short of amazing. Xo
