Red and white polka dots... oh! and Elmo

This week little S turns one!!!! I can't believe it... it's been so fast. He is no longer a little baby!
We have been crazy busy planning his birthday, of course it is an ELMO themed party! What else could it be?
Since I want to do everything myself, there are some things that need practice like cake pops... so here is pic of our first try at Elmo Cake Pops!  

I followed bakerella's instructions. You can find them hereShe has the most AWESOME ideas ever!!!!

Oh!!! and I also did this little hat for the birthday boy! It still needs some work done, when everything is ready I'll share more pics!
I found a super cute tutorial on how to make your own birthday hat! You can find it here.

Have an awesome week!!!
(I can't believe he is turning 1 on Wednesday!)

spring is here!!!

We went to Ikea on Saturday to buy some shelves, but it just seems impossible to stick to my budget when I go there... we bought the shelves, and got a little something for S's room!

We had some friends over on Sunday. It was Renee's birthday and they brought a yummy carrot cake...
There's still some left, I might just go get a little piece and a cup of tea! 
It's been so nice, sunny and warm the last couple of days and that makes me very happy!

keep on bloggin'

For the last couple of months I've been trying to decide if I should keep design glimpse or not.
I kept thinking, and thinking, and thinking about it. I still couldn't make up my mind. 
Yes, I enjoy blogging. Yes, I like to share. No, I'm not good at being constant about it. 
So should I or shouldn't I continue with this project? ... decisions, decisions.
Yesterday, as I was unloading the dishwasher, I was making a mental list of things I want to post on the blog... and then I got my answer. I haven't blogged in like forever but I have a little notebook (yes, I'm the kind of girl that carries a Moleskine and a pen everywhere) full of ideas for the blog. 
Some doodles and silly things I like to draw just because!
Yes. I will continue blogging. 
I like it, it makes me happy, and it gives me a sense of accomplishment.
