New baby = good reason to party

Last week, these two ladies made an appearance at our office, so we decided to throw a party!

We played games....

There were decorations...a little pink camouflage number I whipped up just for the party.

There were gifts...

...including this one of a kind change pad honouring one of our old recruitment campaigns. The campaign was called What Would You Change, so that makes this a What Would You Change mat! I'm sorry, but it still makes me laugh every time I say it. It's made out of one of the leftover campaign t-shirts, so it counts as an upcycled project to boot!

I also got our entire department to contribute their old work t-shirts to another one of a kind project, a BCIT quilt...'cause what new mom doesn't want a constant reminder of work while they're on maternity leave? It may not be a shining example of my quilting skills, but it gave everyone a good laugh and will be put to good use, I'm sure!

It was so awesome to see Erika and have a chance to hang out with her adorable little girl, Sydney. People need to bring babies to the office more often. Wouldn't that be nice?


  1. Sydney and I had a fabulous time. Even if she did sleep through most of it! The quilt and change pad were awesome and totally impressive to someone who couldn't thread a needle or wind a bobbin to save her life.

  2. Oh and I loved the camo decor ... didn't realize that was your handy work as well. So talented!

  3. Wow, looked so fantastic! So sad I missed it.

  4. @Erika
    Glad you're liking the items Erika! It was so nice seeing you and Sydney.

  5. @Leslie Courchesne
    Yes, Leslie, it's shameful that you were busily working away poolside in San Diego while we were partying at the office. ;-)
