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 […]

Fishing Father’s Day

I have posted several fun Father’s Day ideas on the blog over the years. I think it is because men are a bit like big kids and it is easy to pick one of their hobbies or interests and create a whole theme around it. Last year, we celebrated my husband’s love of fishing with […]

Terrific Train Birthday Party

I’ve had a little break from birthday parties, but there are a couple right around the corner now. Before my son celebrates his 3rd birthday, it might be a good idea to blog his 2nd birthday. It hit at a really busy time last year and I just didn’t get a chance to get the […]

Mandi’s new BFF and my Katniss Moment

If you can’t tell by the title, this is my entry for Mandi’s from Vintage Revivals Epic Makeover Contest…   I’ve been thinking about it for months–trying to decide whether I should have Mandi come figure out what to do with my family room, or my master bedroom. How would I plead my case? What […]

Ruffling Crepe Paper the easy way

Last week, I showed you the sweet surprise anniversary party I helped to throw.   The highlight of the decorations was the crepe paper streamers that I ruffled in various combos and laid across the white linens. I’m pretty in love with ruffled streamers. This isn’t the first time I’ve used them. They made up […]

Boy Birthdays Revisited

My oldest son (2nd child) is turning 6 on Sunday!  I was going to throw the big robot birthday for him on Monday, but too many of the potential party guests are leaving town for the weekend, so I have postponed the party for a couple of weeks.  This is probably very providential, because I […]

Tea Party Revisited

All photos (except invitation) by Jodee Ballantyne   Last week, Shannon from My Baby Clothes Boutique did a guest post (and a GIVEAWAY) about having a tea party with your toddler. So much of what she said reminded me of this party my daughter and I threw for her friends. It wasn’t her birthday, or […]

A TIE-rific Father’s Day

Yes, I know my pun is horrible, but these ideas aren’t! Go to my guest post at the Fave Crafts blog for all the details! What are you doing for Father’s Day?

Makeovers–2008

So, in the blogging world, is it fashionable to come late to a party, or is it rude? Because I am doing it every time! But you know I hate to miss a good party, so I dash over for a little bit, anyway! Today (it’s today for 20 more minutes!), Southern Hospitality is hosting […]

Welcome Autumn

A year ago this time, I was anxiously awaiting the birth of my baby girl and needed some small projects to take my mind off of the guessing game of when she might make her debut. I had seen others writing messages on pumpkins and decided that the most appropriate message for us would be, […]
