Hippity Hop

Before I recap our Easter weekend, I want to say how saddened we are to see all the devastation across our beautiful state of Alabama. Our thoughts and prayers go out to those who are hurt and suffering after the tornado outbreak on Wednesday. At Party of Tew we were blessed to be healthy and safe. We were in one of the only parts of the state that had zero damage and still have power. Also my family in Arab, Alabama, was also fortunate to be have sustained little damage to their property after enduring two tornadoes in one day. Please join us in praying for the families who have lost so much.

Addi girl was lucky that the Easter Bunny found her all the way at Pops and Tula's house this past weekend. He even left a trail of carrots to her Easter basket:) We enjoyed spending the holiday with Brad's family in Mobile and had beautiful weather the entire weekend. See pictures below...have a good weekend!

New For Summer

Well I'm a few days late posting pictures of the new items at Party of Tew Designs. I have been super busy filling orders and taking care of Addi Girl:) But I was able to work up a few new things including this Birthday Cake Banner which can be customized with the colors, names and phrase of your choice.

Over the next several weeks, I will be adding other banners including party, baby and seasonal. If you have a special request, please email me at and I can customize your banner to match a party theme or invitation!

There are still a few summer designs that will be added to my shop next week including a fish, sand pail, apple for teacher, Aubie and Big Al.

Click here to see more pictures of these new designs!

Home Again

Addi Girl made it home from her weekend trip to Nana and Big Daddy's house. I don't think she missed us for a minute. My parents told me, "she didn't even shed a tear." Addi may not have missed us but we sure missed her!

Uncle Trey was her personal chauffeur for the weekend. He picked her up on his way home from Auburn then returned her on his way back to school. It was an extra special treat for Addi Girl to ride in "Tay Tay's" big truck:) Notice the way that girl is looking at Trey...she ADORES him.

If you know Trey then you know that he is a man of few words - quite and introverted. He will hardly talk to her but Addi doesn't care. She is smitten.

I think she is still pouting that a) her trip to Nana and Big Daddy's was over and b) Trey left her behind.

Where has this week gone? Is it Friday already? Brad and I have a baby-free weekend on the horizon and we are not really sure what to do with ourselves.
The only other time we have left Addi overnight was when we went to Arizona for the National Championship game in January. It has been two weeks since my parents have seen Addi Girl and they are suffering from "Addi Withdrawals" (I checked and "Addi Withdrawals" is actually a serious condition). So Addi is heading north to Nana and Big Daddy's house for a few days.

This leaves me plenty of time to work on new door hanger designs and replenish my stock. This week in a moment of insanity I bought a sewing machine. No, I do not know how to sew anything other than a button and no, I have never used a sewing machine before in my life. It took me approximately 2 hours to thread that stupid machine. Good news is I am starting to get the hang of it and all Party of Tew Designs products will be sewn instead of glued from now on. Check back Monday to preview summer designs and to see a new product! Happy Friday!

Birthday Celebration

All Brad requested for his birthday this year was "Strawberry cake and beef brisket." An odd combination, but what the birthday boy wants the birthday boy gets!

We surprised Brad by framing some of our championship memorabilia from last season. They will proudly hang in his new office. Hope you had a good bday Brad!

Weekend Rewind

Our weekend was a whirlwind of visitors and activity - just the way we like it! Aunt Mal and Uncle Steven came to stay for a few days. We just love to have houseguests...someone to cook big for and it! Of course its even better when your houseguest is your sister:)
Nana wouldn't miss out on an opportunity to see all her girls so she came and spent Saturday with us.

Us girls zipped around town to visit all our favorite shops. Before we hit the streets, I had Mallory snap a photo of just Addi and me. There are no pics of Addi Girl and me because I'm the one who is always behind the camera.

I was on a mission to find a dress to wear to Brad's ten year reunion in a few weeks.

After trying on a dozen, I found just the right one. Addi Girl kept us entertained through all the wardrobe changes.

On Sunday we were so sad to see everyone leave but we spent the rest of the afternoon soaking up the sunshine.
