Tropical Girl's Birthday Party




I still can't believe my baby girl is NINE, wowzers!
Where has the time gone?? 

She wanted to have her Birthday at the indoor water
park near us, so picked a tropical motif for Mama to
work her magic with this year. It was fun working 
with all the fun colors and seeing her face light
up when she saw the decorations, was the icing
on top of the store bought cake.
(yup, I'm that Mom)

Before her big day, we of course had to make 
party invitations, no store bought of digital ones
for this family...
Addie had fun coloring all the toucan birds, I 
cut them out and we used a pop dot to made them
fly off the invitations.

Her simply "loud" store bought cake was 
gobbled up by all the sugar hungry party girls...


A bit of coordinating party table flair to adorn the tables.
We picked up a carton of tiny paper umbrellas and scattered
them in the middle of the tables with tropical flowers, that the 
girls had fun playing with while they were waiting for the
pizza to arrive.


and finally a Thank You to all her silly friends for
helping make her 9th Birthday a splashing success!


 We made flower hair clips and added a few pieces of 
candy taffy to their thank you bags.

Happy Birthday baby girl, I LOVE you
to the moon and back!!

Easy DIY Kids Art Display


Looking for a way to hang all of the beautiful art work your kids bring home from 
Church, School or home projects? If you have an empty door, you have 
the perfect spot without clogging up your kitchen refrigerator with magnets. 

This closet, I actually converted into our art cupboard by hanging a shoe
organizer on the inside of the door and having my hubby build a few shelves in 
place of where coats would hang. 

I took a spool of hemp twine and just tied sections around the door, knotting
on the inside of the door. The word ART was cut out of stiff felt, so no rolling 
of the corners as it hangs in place. My kids clipped mini clothes pins on the
twine and then we hung a few pieces of their artwork. 

An easy project and now their art won't fall off the refrigerator
 door everytime it opens!

How do you display your kids masterpieces at home?

Washi Tape Eggs


I picked up these papered eggs from Hobby Lobby last
year after Easter, so they were on sale, woohoo!

This year I had my daughter help me wrap them in Washi
Tape and we displayed them in this little Easter Basket.

Next year I might wrap them in twine, who knows. The
sky's the limit when it comes to crafting and repurposing!


Happy Easter Y'all!!

Easter Egg Wreath with Washi Tape


My kids have been chomping at the bit with our recent
snow fall and lack of outdoor play, so I asked them to help
me with this project. They sorted out fun colored plastic eggs
and wrapped Washi Tape around the openings, while I
wrapped and hot glued everything onto the wreath. 


I didn't have enough of the blue organza to wrap the 
entire wreath, so I pulled out some green paper grass to
fill in the gap. A chevron ribbon left over from a diaper
cake was added before I finished up with the grass. 

I had to put my OCD aside with the washi tape on the 
eggs but the kids did a fantastic job and kept their
creative hands busy for a few minutes, hooray!

A bit of hot glue strategically placed on the eggs and 
taadaa...a finished wreath. I love the fun pops of color
throughout and that we had everything on hand, 
so no trips to the craft store were needed.

Hoppy Easter Footprint Card



If you're looking for a quick and cute way to impress
the Grand or Great GrandParents this Easter
and you happen to have a little one to use as a human stamp,
then try your hand at this cute Hoppy Easter handmade card!


I used my 9-1/2 month old's wee little bunny foot and inked
it up with a bit of craft ink (it washed right off with soap and
water, as soon as we were finished stamping) and then sprinkled
white embossing powder on the image. After heat embossing her
sweet little foot, I used a brayer to roll the blue background onto 
my white cardstock. I guess I could've just used a blue cardstock
instead but I was trying to go for a different look...

I then took a piece of dry swiffer, to buff the blue ink off of her
footprint and then started on the rest of my card. I wanted the card
to say Hoppy Easter, so I just combined two stamps and voila, 
a new saying! The 'from your little bunny' I printed off of my
computer and stuck everything down with doubled sided sticky
tape & snail adhesive.

I hope our Greats and Grands love it as much as I do!

Vintage Circus Unisex Nursery Wall Art

After trying to locate all of the nursery photos to share with a friend 
the other day, I realized that I have not properly written a full post 
and shared photos, now that the nursery is completely done. 

The baby will be 9 months the end of this month, can't believe
it!! These photos were taken when she was a little bigger than a
newborn, 14 days old. She was a stinker and stayed awake
almost the entire photo shoot but I LOVE how they turned out.


The wooden Circus banner I found on Pottery Barn Kids for
a steal! Only $10 with free shipping, I couldn't pass it up!


The little red shelves are from Hobby Lobby, the perfect
planking of the repurposed window that I found on the curb
in Newport - thank you hubby for fixing it up a bit!
