Cows and chickens and pigs, oh my!

In a complete break from tradition, I am revealing the party theme before the party. Yep. That’s right. Something is afoot.

So here it is: the invitation I designed for Zoie’s barnyard themed party. There’s probably some copyright infringement in there somewhere but oh well.

Here are a few round labels I whipped up also:

Putting them out there in cyber-world probably means they will get jacked but hey it is what it is. Everything I design has, ahem, borrowed elements anyway, hehe.

So the theme is barnyard/farm and the colour scheme is red/yellow/blue. It’s going to be a small party at home and I am hoping for far less headache then Emilie’s 5th birthday bash back in March. Far less…

Now, does anyone know where I can rent some chickens and a pony??

I am not dead…

I have been on holiday. Ok, not really.

As much as I wish I could tell you that I have been on a sandy beach somewhere, soaking up UV rays and sipping on something fruity and very alcoholic, alas, tis not so.

In its final weeks, my MA dissertation soundly kicked my butt. I exerted every last ounce of mental, emotional, and physical energy into writing 20,000 words of the most important story I have ever told. Two bouts of bronchitis, one UTI, and a semi mental breakdown later, and I think (fingers crossed) I am finally on the mend. I have been celebrating by sleeping. Move over Rip van Winkle…

Now it’s time to pick myself back up, dust myself off, and get cracking on bright new things ahead. Coming up in the next few weeks is Zoie’s 2nd birthday and party and I have been busy planning away excitedly. I am also on the hunt for some work experience (better put this MA to some use right?) and I have grand plans for this blog as well!

Fun times ahead! So I’m back, and I really hope I can stay this time. 🙂
