Let’s learn how to make a Cactus Pinata together!  Are you that person who is always looking for a project?  Especially a craft project?  I’m not always,even though I LOVE to craft but definitely up for it, if I can’t find what I want!  I was looking locally for a cactus pinata and could not locate one.  I was in a time crunch and needed it like yesterday or I would have ordered online.  They have some cute ones!  But, hey…I thought it couldn’t be too hard to make one, right?!  So I ran to Hobby Lobby and learned from…

We are full of birthdays around here in this month of May!  Did you see my husband’s 50th here? That was such a blast!  Then, our youngest son had the big 1-8 right after!  Definitely some milestone birthdays happening!  So let’s get our ombre on and throw an Ombre 18th Birthday Party shall we? The inspiration for this party was his favorite color green!  We were having a pool party so I wanted to incorporate aqua blue to mimic the color of pool water.  What better way to do that then go with an ombre style theme. Along with lots…

Happy Spring friends! I am very excited that Spring is here and Easter is around the corner! Let’s celebrate these with vignettes!  I love this season because everything has a fresh new start in every way from the trees, to the flowers and plants blooming, to the special holiday celebration of Easter.  It is time to do a little “spring cleaning” and bring out the decorations for both. This is a lovely time to start prepping your home for spring parties to come!  I have teamed up with a group of very talented ladies, 10 fantastic creatives who have designed…

My Heart is bubbling with happiness friend that you are here!  Don’t you love Valentine tags or gift tags that have catchy sayings!  It is one of my favorite things and brings a smile.  I guess I am kind of cheesy that way.  You can purchase the “My Heart is Bubbling with Happiness” tags here.  These tags are so easy to print off from your printer, cut out and adhere or tie them onto a bottle of bubbles or even some hand soap.  How cute is that?  I purchased a set of extra tiny bubble bottles shown in the photos…

Are you looking for a cute and quick Valentines printable for your child to take to their class on Valentine’s Day?  You are in the right place!  You make my heart glow Valentine printables here are so cute and quick to purchase, print off and adhere to glow stick necklaces!  I picked up these necklaces at Party City in the party favor section.  These printables would look cute on any glow items like a bracelet or a cute favor bag with several glow items in it!  Just whatever your creative mind comes up with!  I would love for you to…

Valentines is coming soon and it’s always fun to hang out with your favorite besties! So how about a Galentines evening?! I picked up some great items at the dollar spot at Target and put this bubbly beverage station together with goodies and items I had on hand! Let’s set up a Galentines Bubbly Beverage Bar for a Girl’s Night Out! For the backdrop I reused a fabric banner I had from my son’s graduation party, a black screen I currently have in my home, a buffalo plaid banner design from my etsy store here, and then the cute chalkboard…

Marbleizing a desktop or table top has a few tedious steps but in a few hours you have a new look!  I was looking for a more feminine look for a desk that my husband brought home from his office.  It was going to be used in my studio and marbleizing the desktop with a “marble” look was the perfect idea!  I have used shelf lining paper before to cover table tops and I remembered that it came in a marble pattern.  I checked a few places and landed at Lowes Home Improvement.  They had a pretty white and gray…

This chalk paint chandelier project was simple.  It was the quick change my studio needed!  More changes in the redo of my office studio can be seen here in the previous post.  This is the “before” and “after” photo of the chandelier.  A lovely chocolate brown that was great back in the early 2000’s.  But, definitely needed a fresh look.  Believe me, it would have been great to get a “new” chandelier and hang it, but that was not in the budget…as well as I am always looking for a project. So painting it was! I decided to go to…
