Rub-a-dub-dub... A Baby to Love

My little sister's baby shower was this weekend past. We did a rubber ducky theme for her (I picked it). It turned out really sweet. I can't believe that my little sister is going to have a little one of her own.
For decorations, I purchased a ton (72?) mini rubber duckys on Oriental in several different themed costumes. We scattered these ducks all over the house and had a bucket of them next to the door for our guests to take home with them as they left.
To add a fun crafty element, I also purchased blank ducks and provided paints for our guest to DIY their own rubber ducky to take home with them. I wish I had thought to providing a finishing/sealing spray for the ducks. This, of course, would make them toxic but would protect the paint from chipping. Luckily, my brother had some spray in his room that he left out for the project. Thank you, Devin!

With all of the party preperations, I feel like I haven't had any time to devote to my crafts. I don't mind too much though-- I love my sister.
