After Ruari and I picked out her pumpkin on Tuesday, we made a trip to the store. I wanted to check out bulk candy prices to get a better idea of some birthday party costs. 

I ended up buying 2.5 pounds of gumdrops for $2.50… I wont tell you what I’m making just yet. 😀 It’s so simple. I’ll share a little tutorial after I’m done… which will be soon! Hopefully!

Those gumdrops have inspired me. Even though I think they taste horrible… they are very pretty.


My Three picks on Thursday:

1) Look at this cute gumdrop print I found on Etsy! So cute! I found it at: I Heart Kid Art.

AND, I found this neat gumdrop garland on Amazon. The store I bought my gumdrops from also have some large sized gumdrops! I’m thinking I may try and make a gumdrop garland for Ruari’s birthday party… OR, I’ll just get lazy and buy this plastic gumdrops garland from Amazon. ;D

2) All this planning for a birthday party that’s right around Christmas has really put me in the Christmas spirit! Seriously. I love Christmas. It was really hard for me last year. The 25th was a week after my horrible birth. It will be different this year. I have a happy healthy baby. AND, I’m happy and healthy-ish. 🙂

I just wanted to remind you guys. The Babylegs coupon I have for you ends on October 31st! I always like to get my Christmas shopping done early. You get 20% off! An AWESOME deal! You can click here to go to BabyLegs and when you check out use the code: PAPERMAMA

They have some holiday baby legs up now! Very cute. I think I’d like to get the Nordic leg warmers for Ruari.
