Disneyland Party & Family Game Room

I previously shared our excitement in opening our Disney Side @Home Celebration party hostess box. I received free products in order to host the Disney Side party including everything I would need to invite friends over for fun. This year the Disney parks have chosen to celebrate guests showing off their "Disney Side" and I couldn't think of a better way to join the fun than by changing my daughter's play room into a Disneyland themed family game room. Our Disney Side party was the room debut Read More... {Read More...}

Creepy Crawly Party Wreath

My daughter's Creepy Crawly Birthday party was full of DIY decorations. With her birthday being in December I was able to purchase all the plastic bugs during after Halloween and Black Friday sales. Our entire home was filled with creepy crawlies and fit perfectly with the party theme! Guests were greeted by a big wreath covered in snakes and bugs on our front door.  The creepy crawly party wreath was inexpensive and incredibly easy to make. Supplies: grape wreath (purchased Read More... {Read More...}

Creepy Crawly Birthday Thank You Cards {free printable}

We celebrated my daughter's fifth birthday with a creepy crawly birthday party. Instead of purchasing invitations and matching thank you cards, I created my own using PicMonkey.

With my daughter's love for her new pets, a cockroach on the thank you cards was perfect.

Creepy Crawly Birthday Party

She quickly clarified she wanted a party full of creepy crawly bugs like hissing cockroaches, centipedes, and tarantulas. I told her we could save the creepy crawly party for the next year and we had a Fourth Birthday Art Party instead. This year when we started planning her fifth birthday party, she was quick to Read More... {Read More...}

Fourth Birthday Art Party

Last weekend we celebrated my daughter's fourth birthday with a really fun art party.My daughter had so much fun helping me make the party invitations  I printed the invitations on white paper and then used a glue stick to attach them to card stock.  Then I added four paint dots (pink, purple, orange, and blue) to the middle.  The paint splatter was the last detail.  My daughter couldn't believe I told her to splatter paint all over the invitations!  I quickly made an a matching envelope with Read More... {Read More...}

Scrap Paper Party Decoration

A couple of weeks ago I made a hanging decoration for the Arizona Pinterest Party.  I used scrap paper and spent only half an hour making the large decoration.I looked through my stash of paper and pulled out about 20 red and turquoise pages to match our colors for the party.   The pages were not double sided and I did not want half of the hanging decoration to be white so I cut the pages into strips (3" x 4") and folded each piece in half.   Then I used my sewing machine to stitch all the paper Read More... {Read More...}

Crafty Pinterest Party

A couple of weeks ago I attended the Crafty Pinterest Part and had an amazing time.  Sara from The Clever Pink Pirate and Laura from the Pink Cake Plate put so much work into making this a great event.  I met new friends, ate incredible food, and worked on my gift for the Craftaholic Anonymous Handmade Gift Exchange.  We received an incredible bag packed full of fun goodies.  My Sunday Showroom last week shared all the wonderful swag from handmade businesses.  I rarely win anything and couldn't Read More... {Read More...}
