Batman Baby Shower Invite: Newspaper Style

I love hosting parties, and people love no having to! Just kidding! But I do love throwing parties. A friend and co-worker is currently pregnant and expecting soon. I wanted to throw a baby shower that she would enjoy. All of her friends know that she loves Batman, I mean, she does have a cat named Bruce! 

Anyways, if finding shark themed invites was hard, finding a baby shower invite that was Batman themed was even harder. I don't know why I don't just start off with creating the invites myself! Silly, silly me! Oh well, I wanted to go for a more vintage theme, and what better than having it be similar to a newspaper. The Gotham Times to be exact. Now, this invite is already in the shop, so if you'd like to purchase the printable, you can! 




Now, this time, I just changed everything and not just deleted things. I feel like you can see how it will look more if you can see a mock up of a real invitation. I folded the newspaper up in thirds and tied it up with twine, to make it look like it was a real newspaper. Everyone loved the invites when I sent them out, and I even had someone order some printables from these invites! I can't wait for the baby shower, and am excited that it's Batman themed. 

Have you thrown a baby shower? How about a Batman themed one?

Oh boy! It's been over a year since the last time that I updated here. A lot has happened throughout that year. We recently moved into a townhome style community and my husband and I both started new jobs. We aren't the only ones changing it seems though. IKEA seems to be spitting out new products, and almost identicals of older products.

A few months ago, Big A, Little A and I visited our closest IKEA in search of the EXPEDIT. When we walked into the self-serve area, were we surprised to see not only the EXPEDIT but an almost identical unit. This new unit, the KALLAX, was slightly cheaper, but seemed to be the long lost twin of the EXPEDIT. Seeing as it was cheaper, we went ahead and purchased the KALLAX. Let me just say, it is definitely worth the buy!

You see, since moving, we got rid of our TV stand that was unfortunately too l…

IKEA Hack/LATT Table and Chairs Turned Storage Table

UPDATE: Make sure you put some sort of soft close adapter or hinge that would allow for the table top to not fall too fast or fall at all! Little A had a mishap with the table top falling down and hit underneath his eye. My poor little fellow. So, please learn from my mistake!



When Little A was about a year old, we purchased him an IKEA LATT table so that he would have his own table to read, draw and pretty much learn on. That thing has been through so many stages of his life. He has eaten on it, subsequently doused in water painted on, colored on and just plain had fun on. Recently, it started to become very, for lack of a better word, sad. The particle board top was bubbling up and would not get clean, the legs, sides and chairs had paint and color marks, and the whole table had seen better days.





Big A wanted to throw it out and buy a ne…

DIY IKEA Children's Chairs

A few weeks ago I posted about an IKEA hack of my son's table and chairs set. Of course I didn't get around to posting the chairs part of that table and chairs hack.... ANYWAYS, I didn't like the look the original chairs, new or used. I had seen many different hacks on the chairs themselves, mostly consisting of adding fabric to the seat or painting them. They all looked great, but I love upholstered and cushion seat chairs. I couldn't find any when I looked of what I was going for, so I decided to try it out.

The chairs themselves took longer that the table, only because it was trial and error based. I just wanted to be able to put the table and chairs anywhere in the house and have them fit in. I think I did a pretty good job at that, if I do say so myself. Just a forewarning, I apologize for the poor quality of pictures, I was trying to finish the chairs and it was night time before I was able to get to them. 

Not too shabby for someone who has no prior upholstery p…
