planning a party

Here's a sneak peek at Landon's upcoming birthday party. I love how the invitations turned out. Jessica at Pen n' Paper Flowers is a dream to work with. Be sure to check out her shop and blog. She has some pre-mades available and can also customize any theme you come up with.

I have lots left to do to get ready for his party and am also trying to finish up his big boy bedroom. I finally settled on his bedding and ordered it this morning. A few more finishing touches and it will be all done. I can't wait to see it finished and his reaction. Once everything is done, I'll be doing a room reveal and sources post. 

How many of you have a sewing machine at home? I truly need one {my hand-stitched pillows will attest to this} but have to admit I'm a bit intimidated. When I've used machines in the past, I've always had problems with the bobbins, tension, etc. Any suggestions on a beginner's sewing machine and/or any tips to help me along the way? I thought about this Singer machine and this Michley, but the bad reviews scare me. Of course, for a beginner the price is right.  Maybe I need this too.

Have you entered the August giveaway? You have {FOUR} chances to win so don't miss out! 

A note on Landon's invitation - Jessica made the card clean, modern and groovy with the great chevron design. The Scooby Doo graphic was added by me.

Amazing how simple it can be to communicate with people and have them understand a certain topic, you made my day.
