With the big game behind us, (and what a game it was!) I am now free to focus all of my creativity on Valentine's Day. Yippee skippy! I'm working on some Valentine's for my Grands, planning a fun themed breakfast... Continue reading

Mmmm hmmm. My head says think football, but my heart says Valentine. I'm struggling to find my Superbowl party mojo this year for some reason. Maybe it's because I'm not invested in either team in the Superbowl this year, (I... Continue reading

Yes! That's exactly what I did! Then, roll it up and store it for next year.
My my etsy shop is filling up with several new $5 printable e-kits, so you might want to check it out before the weekend gets here. (Are you getting tired pf seeing my mantel showcasing some new printable yet?) Some... Continue reading

Nothing beats the winter blahs better than comfort food. For my gathering last week, I took the easy route. My cooking mantra is that if I can buy something ready made that tastes better than I can make it, I... Continue reading

Meet Natalie Rose. She arrived this week, taking her place as number nine on my grand babe roster, and only the second girl to join the bouncing brood of cousins. With two big brothers, she will most certainly be a... Continue reading

I'm having a few girlfriends over next Wednesday night for a girl's night, and I designed this invitation, because...well, because that is what I do. After I designed it, I printed it, and matted it with a piece of black... Continue reading

Oh, the Seahawks are still my number one, and this coming weekend I will be cheering on Cam Newton and the Panthers. My Rock n' Roll Buddy will be sitting on the other side of the sofa, cheering on the Cardinals! Tracey
I was invited to a football party for the big games last Saturday, and I decided to make my dipped pretzel sticks in both teams colors (The Patriots and the Cardinals.)as well as taking along a few cupcakes. The dipped... Continue reading

You might remember that I shared some glittery New Year's Eve party hats and horns and party bags back during the fall. Well, my customer sent me some photos from her fabulous event, and they did not disappoint! The touches... Continue reading

I'm loving the words everyone is choosing! Donna, Bear passed away several years ago, when still lived in the biggest little city. He lived a long, good life. He was 15. Thanks for reading my blog all these years!
I meant to do this post back on New Year's Day, but it got away from me. (Not a good start for the year, but I am going to go with the better-a-tiny-bit-late-than-not-at-all excuse.) I was on a two year... Continue reading
