luna's baby shower (part 2)

Two thoughts after throwing Luna's shower: 1. Watching your friends become mamas + sharing in their joy is one of the happiest things. 2. I've concluded that baby showers are 100 times better after the guest of honor has arrived...Not just for girly specific gifts, but mostly for passing that sweet little peapod around. I couldn't get enough.

Clearly the kiddos in attendance still had Christmas in their blood...They were SO excited to help Becca open her gifts. It was the sweetest thing!While it's true that great minds think alike, did you know that great crafters also think alike? Chelle made this pretty stack of applique onesies...And Courtney made an almost identical bunting pillow. No jokes, no kahoots...It was pure surprise!
Andi made the sweetest daily calendar journal of loose papers wrapped in a pretty box. So wish I'd snapped a pic, because it's tricky to describe, but it looks a whole lot like this. I think it's the perfect easy way to track your kiddo's growth over the years...Jotting down first steps to first marathons and all the happy mundane things in between. It would be so great as a graduation or wedding gift too!
I made some ruffly little onesies (below) and felt flower headbands (not shown).Holding this sweet miss makes me want another one just a little bit.

Beautiful shower! And the gifts are gorgeous! You are quickly making me want to become a crafter but I am so far from any talent in that area!

You are right about waiting until the baby's born to throw the shower - I think it's a great idea!

Hi! I love the ruffle onesies you made for your friend, particularly the white one. Would you consider posting a tutorial for how you made the ruffles?

Thanks for your work!
