If you recall, back in November I made Mummy and Me Dead Girl Decay barrettes as a baby shower gift for my cousin’s girlfriend and their soon to be baby girl Mia. Here is a photo to refresh the old memory…
Well I bring this up because today I was tagged on Instagram in the most adorable photos of Mia. She finally has hair and therefore was able to wear her Sugar Skull barrette for her 10 month photos. How perfect that it’s during my favorite month and time of year. And a purple jack o lantern as a photo prop. How freaking adorable!
See Mia along with all the other happy customers in the Freaky Fanatic slideshow of my website! Also don’t forget to contact me to submit your photos to be featured as well!
The past few weeks I have been a busy Aunt making gifts for my niece Kayla’s baby shower. She is doing her baby’s nursery in Disney’s The Aristocats with emphasis of the character Marie (because she is having a baby girl).
Today was her shower and I was very happy to see the smile on her face when she opened up her gifts.
With the help of my husband Frank we were able to make her a wooden wall hanging of Marie. I drew it on wood, my husband cut it out with a saw and sanded it. I then painted it and sprayed it with a protective gloss.
I also made her a set of my “Mummy and Me” matching Mother and Daughter Hair Barrettes. I picked the colors out based on what I thought Kayla would like and then when I saw the beautiful dress she was wearing for the shower I knew I did well. I couldn’t believe how much they matched what she actually wore to the shower.
And last but not least a photo of Great Aunt Nicole with the beautiful Mommy to be….
Over the weekend I had the joy of going to a baby shower for my friend April. I decided to make her a set of Mommy and Baby matching barrettes as her gift. I used her wedding colors and her love for things retro as my inspiration. It inspired me to start a new line of Dead Girl Decay that I am going to call Mummy and Me. Each purchase will be a set that includes a barrette for Mom and a barrette for the little one 🙂
Here is what I created and gave to her at the shower…..
And here are some photos I took (and edited) at the shower of her opening them…
and for fun here is one of me and the Mommy to be ….
