Bloggers for Birth Kits

Bloggers for Birth Kits
This past week I had the pleasure of getting together with Megan, The Boho Mama, and friends to help put together birth kits to be sent to women of Papua New Guinea via Bloggers for Birth Kits.
Putting together the Birth Kits

Delicious snacks for all the ladies working on the kits

Adorable drink station set up by Megan… seriously most adorable cups and saucers, ever!
Each kit comes with 3X3 plastic square, gauze squares, string, razor blade, 1/8 bar of soap, and plastic gloves
Reading the stories about the conditions of other people in the world when giving birth is extremely eye opening and humbling. It is easy here in America to complain about the conditions we give birth in. We fight about what is better for ourselves and our babies— 
home birth? birthing center? hospital? midwife? OBGYN? 
I feel fortunate to have those choices,
 even if I might have complained about one thing or another along the way.  
I am thankful to the people out there that help to remind me of just how fortunate I am and give me opportunities like this one to help others out there who have not been as fortunate as me. 
More information for Blogging for Birth Kits and ways to help donate to this great cause can be found over at The Mommyhood Memos. So far 4861 birth kits have been donated!

Well Crafted Fans: Party Backdrop and Mojito

Well Crafted Fans: Party Backdrop and Mojito
I was so excited to receive a couple of photos from people who read “A Well Crafted Party” and used some of the inspiration they found here in their real life.
Heidi, from Illuminating Events, contacted me ages ago about the card backdrop I created for my Mad Tea Party a few years ago. I e-mailed her a few tips on how to create one of her own. She ended up creating a wonderful backdrop for her party and sent me some of the lovely photos.

June Portland Bloggers’ Meet-Up

June Portland Bloggers’ Meet-Up
I’ve been a busy, busy bee lately getting things together for the next Portland Bloggers’ Meet-up!

The June meet-up is going to be a nice, casual family picnic for all the area bloggers and their families. I’m super excited about seeing all of the families together and meeting some bloggers in real life. I’m now dreaming up ideas for my family’s picnic food and yummy treats.
I also finished the second edition of the Portland Bloggers’ Newsletter… 
if you are a Portland Blogger then e-mail me and I’ll send you a copy!
Like the Picnic Invite? Create your own with Eat Drink Chic’s free printable invite & The pretty velvet flower and leaves are from puglypixel.com
I think that if these keep going well then I am going to need to throw a “Meet Your Favorite Bloggers” style meet-up so that area readers can actually say “HI!” to bloggers in real life. 
What do you think about that idea? Is it something you’d attend or take part of?
