Boys Birthdays

I had to post these cool Lego cupcakes for all of my Lego-obsessed nephews and their (Lego-obsessed Dads) one of them just had a Lego birthday, I think. They are from Hello Naomi. Look at all of her great cupcakes here. Including these robot cupcakes…which go perfectly with this great robot party from the Hostess […]

Wild & CRAZY Cake!

You’ve got to check out this cake that my sister, Kerali, made for her son, Owen’s fifth birthday! I did mention that insanity runs rampant in my family, right?But don’t worry, she had help…Owen was apparently the chief frosting mixer. It looks great from all angles! I especially love the idea of using the layers […]

Nancy Drew–Thank you!

OK. I promise this will be the last post about the Nancy Drew party, but I had a fun time making these thank you cards, and thought I would share. I bought this line-up set from Oriental Trading Co. and used it to take pictures of all of the girls at the party. I cropped […]

Pirate Files

I’m saving this idea for Trenton’s pirate birthday in a year and 4 months. Yes, it is a little ridiculous that I am planning a birthday party for more than a year out, but we are trying to stay on track for the space/astronaut-themed birthday this September, so we have decided that pirates are next […]

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 […]

Nancy Drew Party–Magnifying Glass Cake

So the big Nancy Drew party is over and for the most part was a success (you don’t plan for a party guest to get sick and throw-up…fortunately I haven’t heard of anyone else getting sick from the exposure.) But I thought I would share all of the ideas, incase any of you are insane […]

Nancy Drew Notebook – hybrid project

This is they hybrid sleuthing notebook I made for the Nancy Drew mystery birthday adventure (full report coming, later). I got the idea from Emily Giovanni’s blog. Credits are listed on my gallery at Little Dreamer Designs. The notebook was on clearance at Target, super cheap! I’ve also thought about using this idea for mothers’ […]

Nancy Drew–Invitation Insanity

Are you ready for all of the Nancy Drew Insanity? This weekend is my daughter’s big Nancy Drew party, and there is plenty of insanity to be had all around. And while my husband rolls his eyes and can’t understand why I do it, my daughter really thinks I am the coolest, most creative mom […]

Pup Cakes

My sister, Shanda, made these adorable cupcakes for her daughter’s first birthday. I believe she just used m&m’s and some string tips (correct me if I’m wrong, Shanda). Anyway, supercute. (And I like the serving plate, too.)
