We shop dollar tree, hobby lobby and our own craft closets. We are those type of control freak people. We get an idea and then that is what it must be and drive ourselves nuts ha. I come from a very artistic family. When you say party, shower or wedding we pull out all the troops. I knew awhile back what I wanted to do theme wise for our daughters first birthday....more
