Follow Me, Chickadee Friday!

Good morning everyone!

Another edition of Follow Me, Chickadee, Friday in the works! If you want to play along, see the guidelines below :)

If you're new here, I hope you find something that keeps you coming back. Me in a nutshell: I'm a 26-year-old mama to Ava, 7 months, as well as girlfriend (one of these days that'll change to fiancée, but that's another story for another day!) to D. I'm also a full-time nanny, a part-time writer, and attempting to be a gardener, baby-food maker, activist - just trying to set a good example for my sweet baby girl. Feel free to weigh in on Halloween costumes below, AND let me know if you have any good ideas for an Elmer the Patchwork Elephant themed first birthday party!!!
I hope to see you back again!

  2. So I was looking around online while bored at work and found some info for you and a couple of links. Hope this helps a little:

    Elmer the Patchwork Elephant Party Ideas

    1. Of course, create an Elmer the Patchwork Elephant Invitaiton by cutting out an elephant shape and having your child color the cutout in a patchwork of colors. On the reverse side, write your part details.
    2. For your party decorations, it’s all about a patchwork of color.  Use bright, bold colors for your party balloons, streamers, tableware.
    3. Place a large Elmer the Patchwork Elephant on your front door welcoming the guests to your party.
    4. Upon arrival, have the kids create their own Elmer the Patchwork Elephant on a large white sheet using finger paint.  Hang up this Elmer Tapestry after it is completed for an additional party decoration.
    5. Patchwork Hunt. Send everyone on a hunt for colorful tokens.  Give them 2 minutes to find as many as they can and hand out prizes when the time is up.
    6. For your party menu, use an Elephant cookie cutter to cut out sandwiches, gelatin Jigglers, and brownies. Serve Elmer Elephant Trail Mix with colorful chocolate candies mixed into the granola.

    Amazon has all the Elmer merchandise you could want.
    Another good site for Elmer merchandise is
