Tessa Turns Two—Pink Puppy Party

Miracle Worker Week ended with a celebration of my daughter’s second birthday. If you have read my blog at all, you know that I dream up elaborate birthday schemes for my kids’ birthdays, often a year or more in advance. Tessa’s birthday was no exception, except that as the birthday got closer, everything changed. And […]

Eyelet and Rainbows–Kira’s 8th Birthday and Baptism Celebration

Oh!  This is a crazy-long post but it’s full of fun colorful pictures!  My daughter turned 8 in April and was baptized a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.  Now that more than a month has passed, I think it is about time I blogged about it.  I wanted a fun […]

Wonderful Wonderland Dinner

This is not My Insanity–but I wish it were!  Back in the middle of my April craziness, I got to sneak away for gourmet group at my friend, Jennifer’s house.  She and Alicia went all out creating this evening in Wonderland (as in Alice in Wonderland) for us.  I asked them if I could share […]

Too Cute Teapot Cake and Cupcakes

Just a quick post to show you this adorable cake and cupcakes made by a reader of My Insanity. I mention that because that is how I found her. I really wish that I could claim to be the inspiration behind this brilliance, but I’m afraid this insanity all belongs to the mommy of The […]

Hooray for Hollywood–Academy Awards/Movie Parties

And I am going to send out invitations in large sealed envelopes that say (photo courtesy LIFE) “…And the winner is… YOU—because you’re invited to my awesome Academy Awards party” or something like that. And I would love it if my party […]

Party Round-up

This post has taken forever for me to compose. Mainly because there were inspiring things about each and every party that is listed at my party party. I found myself wanting to feature every one! But since that wasn’t humanly possible, (for me at this moment), I have chosen several fun ideas to feature and […]

And the nominees are…(please vote!)

I have a bunch of other awards to hand out from my Blogoversary Party Party (stay tuned), but I need your help with the big “Party in a Package” Prize. For this award, I was looking for the parties that took a theme and went with it, used ideas I haven’t seen or thought of […]

It Was The Bomb!–Kim Possible Birthday Party

My daughter is all about girl power (Nancy Drew, Kim Possible, and I still have to post about Mulan). This was her 6 year-old birthday a couple of years ago. And it wasn’t just a party…It was an ADVENTURE! INVITATION: You see here one of the “kimmunicators” we made for invitations. The screen was a […]

Nancy Drew Party–The Mystery!

So it’s time to wrap up the report on the Nancy Drew party. On Friday night, each girl put together their own “sleuthing kit.”  I found little cosmetic bags at the Dollar Spot at Target.  I had planned to iron on their initials as a monogram before hand, but didn’t have enough letter A’s for […]
