Hi, fellow CSI Readers!
I’m thrilled to have the chance to introduce myself to you today. I’m Ruth, the writer here at The CSI Project. It’s my “job” to check out all your blogs and the blogs of our guest judges and sponsors so that I can write the features and winners’ posts each week. What I do is waaaay too much fun to feel like work! I can’t believe how lucky I am to know The CSI Girls–Beckie and Jen–and to meet all of you readers, sponsors, and judges virtually.
I followed The CSI Project and participated in the challenges long before I joined on as the writer. In fact, I have my own little blog, A Trip to Holland. There, you’ll find me writing about how I find joy in the journey of motherhood, homemaking, and DIYing.
Jen and Beckie asked me to share one of my favorite fall projects with you this week. That favorite project would have to be the birthday party I threw for my daughter last year, when she turned seven.
My daughter, Superkid, has a birthday that is very close to Halloween…but she doesn’t like anything spooky! We celebrated seven years of growing big by hosting a teeny, tiny, fall party.
Guests were invited to the party with these miniature cards, measuring just 2 square inches! The cards were placed inside progressively larger envelopes, so the guests could enjoy opening smaller and smaller envelopes to find the tiny invitation within. I folded the party information accordion style inside, so it would fit.
The invitation read:
Once there was an itty-bitty baby,Who grew into a pretty little lady.We know she can’t stay small forever,She just keeps growing! However…….We thought it might be fun to celebrateSuperkid sprouting from small to greatAt a little bitty,teensy weensy,skinny-mini,smally-wally,teeny tinyparty!(Time, address, RSVP, etc.)We’ll enjoy tiny snacks, tiny treats,and have a tiny bit of funas we celebrate all things tinyandSuperkid’s 7th Birthday.
