Super Invitations and Save the Dates

Superhero Invitations and Save the Dates suites

I’ve been wanting to show you these Superhero Party Save-the-Dates and invitations I designed for quite some time, but this party was a SUPER-secret, so I had to keep my mouth (blog) shut on the subject until now. This weekend my Sister-in-law threw a huge surprise superhero-themed 30th birthday party for her husband–who is really […]

Christian Dior Inspired Closet Drawers & Silhouette Promo

Dior box closet drawers-8880

I have a really fun project to show you today! And it actually requires me giving you a rare glimpse into my usually-messy closet. Truthfully, it is the cleanest room in the house at the moment, since I have been focusing my organization efforts in there as of late. I’m excited to show you the […]

An Apple Soda for the Teacher Back to School Gift

back to school gift-8837

My kids went back to school last week. I know that sounds crazy to those of you who don’t start until after Labor Day and it feels a little crazy to me. Our summers are short–less than two months–so we spend the 1st half recovering from the previous school year and the 2nd half gearing […]

Under the Sea Mermaid Birthday Party

A couple of weeks ago I go a call from my neighbor on a Wednesday night. She was wondering if I had any ideas for her daughter’s birthday party THAT SATURDAY! She had sent out an evite weeks before, but hadn’t gotten around to any party planning yet. Of course, I had ideas–it’s My Insanity–I […]

Knit Together in Love Girls Camp

Every summer our church hosts a camp for young women (ages 12-18), where we get them away from boys and cell phones (at least we try), and daily showers, and help them to learn about themselves and strengthen relationships with each other and with God. I haven’t been to girls camp for several years. The […]

One of my other hats is that of a music teacher. As we get closer to school starting, I am also getting ready to begin teaching again. It is also time for my students to brush up on their music skills. Here is a really fun way to review some music basics and just play […]

Stylish Swimwear GIVEAWAY!

I live in Arizona. We hit 119 a week or two ago. Swimwear in Arizona is not an optional accessory for an occasional vacation, but rather, almost a summertime uniform. I’ve begun to look at the purchase of a swimsuit as an important investment in recent years. The right suit can make all of the […]

How to make a 3D Train Cake

I had a request for more details about the 3D cake I made for my son’s 2-year-old Train Birthday Party last year. I should clarify before I start, that I am not a trained baker (wait until I show you his 3-year-old birthday cake fail). I just get big ideas for my kids’ cakes and […]

Disneyland Travel Baskets with Silhouette Design Studio

Disney travel kits-6124

Hi everyone! I had a little bit of a hard time getting this post up because I have been somewhat consumed by the news of the loss of the firefighters from my hometown of Prescott. One of our friends lost her husband in the fire. Before I get on to business as usual, I just […]

(image via Feedly) If you are a follower of many blogs, you have probably heard by now that Google Reader will be no more starting tomorrow. I used to use it all of the time, but became overwhelmed when I added too many blogs. As a blog reader, my life will not be greatly affected […]
