Wednesday Wants: Sesame Street Birthday Invitations

So Ashley’s not one to brag but lately we’ve been missing in action because of moves and extra side businesses (me with PDXWildlife and Ash with Intowee).  Yes you heard it right, Ashley started a new paper line on etsy.  Well OK, the “line” right now is composed of  these cute little sesame street invites that she made for Jax’s first birthday but she’s been steadily getting orders for that in between her school work.

She has lots of other really cute stuff too (like casino themed invites and my wedding stationary for a mountain themed wedding) that we’ll feature as she puts them up.

Go Ash!


Quick go enter for our Giveaway!

Today’s the last day to enter for the Vintage Sesame Street Giveaway!  Make sure you enter (your kiddo will love you forever if you win!).

Good luck to everyone, we’ve had such awesome comments already!


Featured Etsy Shop: Teesies

Remember the awesome onesie that Jax was wearing last Friday from Teesies?

"What would Elmo do?" onesie from Teesies

Don’t miss a chance to win it in our Vintage Sesame Street Giveaway (along with lots of other goodies)! But that’s not really why we’re writing this post . . . we wanted to share even more fabulous Teesies onesies with you all (since Libby has so many clever ones it wasn’t really hard to find some that we truly LOVE).

I just couldn’t resist sharing these funny and vintage style Dubble Trubble baby onesies for twins (especially since Ash and I are twins!):

Teesies shop announcement reads, “If childhood is full of giggles, grins and inside jokes…shouldn’t parenthood be too? ” And Libby bases all of her onesies and t-shirts off of this statement, adding little humorous touches throughout her entire baby clothing line.  We were grinning ear-to-ear reading through some of these clever shirts (and picturing babies in them).

I think this Fragile: Handle with Care is so stinking cute that I may have to get it if I have a second kid:

I think Jax would be so cute in this RAWR shirt.  Plus I adore the “rawr means I love you in dinosaur” explanation at the bottom:

And last but not least, for all those recyclers, green living, and certified organic fiends  out there:

100% Certified Organic onesie from Teesies - too cute!

Also, the look on the little kiddos face in this last one is absolutely classic.

If you want to learn more about Teesies creations and personal style, go to her blog or follow her facebook!


P.S. if you grownups are dying to have an adult version of “What would Elmo do?” Libby has that too, here!

Featured Etsy Shop: Peapods Cookies

If you’ve signed up for our Vintage Sesame Street Giveaway you’ll recognize these cookies from Peapods Cookies:

Elmo Birthday Cookies from Peapods Cookies

Kristie is a super talented cookie aficionado from New York.  She makes some of the cutest cookies we’ve seen on Etsy (her icing technique is to die for- she’s such an artist!).  Speaking of New York, Kristie made some fabulous “Big Apple” themed cookies that would be perfect for a New York wedding or birthday party:

I think the little hotdogs are so cute!

We’ve been thinking about how cute an Alice and Wonderland  birthday party would be over here at tumblewee and I think these little teacup cookies would be perfect (the “eat me” and “drink me” – so cute!):

Bright Colors Tea Party from Peapods Cookies

And if you’re having a business event (or some really neat themed social media party), check out these cookies:

I could almost die over these Social Media Cookies - so clever!

Makes me want to design a social media party just for the heck of it . . . and to eat these cookies.

Make sure to check out her other cute designs at her etsy shop Peapods Cookies and maybe buy a couple goodies for your next big event.  Jax tells us that the cookies are not only good looking but good tastings as well (OK so he can’t really talk so he didn’t tell us per se but he did gobble up and elmo for his birthday)!

Fashion Friday: Jax Birthday Preview

It’s Fashion Friday!

We’re really excited to share these pics with you.  We got some really cute items in for this particular shoot from Teesies and Casanees.  Part of what makes this shoot particularly special is that next week is Jax’s first birthday (May 1st, a May day baby).  So we took these pics in prep for his very cool party that is going to happen – and in true toddler fashion it’s Elmo/Sesame Street themed.  Yes, he’s grown to have a true appreciation for everything Elmo and Sesame Street.  What can I say, they are enduring and so much more exciting than when I was growing up.  I don’t remember such cool songs as this Fiest one, or this Jason Mraz one, try Bruno Mars, Adam Sandler, and so many more . . . Jax has a true love for music and now he dances and jives like there is no tomorrow – it’s so much fun watching.

Well anyway, back to our cool shoot for his birthday invite, which you can find on our sister site – Intowee (you can purchase the invites there also, but we’re currently getting that site up and running, it’s a little in the newbie stage).  We got this adorable onesie from Teesies, it says “What would Elmo do?”  So appropriate . . .

And these plaid suspenders!  I just about died when I saw them, and thought those are sooo Jax (well I guess they are so mom, since I’m the one that dresses him – although Meg was the one who found them!).  Too cute.

And one of these items will be part of big birthday week next week, and will be going in a giveaway… you’ll just have to check back with us or subscribe to our blog if to find out more!

have a great weekend and stay tuned into our blog for more awesome birthday/sesame street bash ideas, inspiration, and giveaway.

Easter Egg Sidewalk Chalk from A Bath Shoppe

Or these little monsters in the bath or as party favors!  I just bet that getting the monster out of the soap encourages your child to use it.

Monster soaps kit. What a neat party favor if you were having a monster themed party!
