happy first birthday little Everett!...

Keep the birthday photos coming friends! Seriously...please? Will ya?

Remember this post we did not very long ago?

I was beyond excited to work on this custom Etsy order. Whole-heartedly excited. You see, I've always been kind of in love with Greek Mythology. I remember really being introduced to it in my 12th grade advanced placement (AP) English class. First period, Mrs. Pomella. 8am every morning, tired 16-18 year olds, one whole hour, ADVANCED ENGLISH..yet she had a way of making it truly fun. Anyway, she had us read so many amazing books and stories- including a lot of Greek Mythology...and I just loved them all.

So, when Miss Sabrina over at Superfluous contacted me asking if we'd be interested in making her son's first birthday decs...and that they'd be Greek inspired...I couldn't say yes fast enough. I did try to play it cool though. You know, the whole.."Oh what? You want us?...Uhhhh yeah...sure...I guess so...I think we might be able to...or something."

Just kidding. I immediately screamed YES! into my computer as I typed my even quicker reply.

She ordered a Greek inspired edible name plaque to top her cake, as well as edible lightning bolts to top her cupcakes.

I have to say, she did an excellent job with her cake!!! The cupcakes too! Jeez, the decorations as well. I guess she did a great job all around. Let the hand clapping commence.

Pretty cool huh???

Thanks so much Sabrina for sharing with me (and now all of us). Oh, and Happy Birthday little Everett!
