I Heart Robots–GIVEAWAY!

www.iloverobots.com We love robots around my house! If you don’t believe me, maybe you should check out the Radical Robot Birthday Party my son had last year, and the cool classroom robot treats we made to take to school. So when the opportunity to review the brand new Mechatar robots came up, I had to […]

Smore Fun Classroom Treats

In the tradition of my non-traditional classroom treats, I’m sharing the smores I will be taking to my son’s class in about an hour in honor of his birthday.  Like many other schools around the nation, our school has a ban on homemade food for class parties. We could launch into a discussion about whether […]

An Apple for the Teacher

A few weeks ago, I had the opportunity to guest post at the amazing blog, Tatertots and Jello. I shared this simple idea for a gift for your children to give their new teachers. I thought I should share it again here, just in case you still have a 1st day of school coming up! […]

Cupcake Wall Art

This is the post I’ve been dying to share with you since I completed these back in March! But they were a special gift for my sister-in-law who was pregnant with her 1st child, and could not be revealed until after the shower. (I did cheat and post a few sneak peeks on my Facebook […]

Happy (Hawaii) 5-0! Milestone gift

While in Utah, my sister-in-law had a major milestone birthday…the big 5-0! She is not the kind that appreciates a big fuss (no wild 50th birthday parties), but I, being who I am, could not let the occasion pass by with out giving her some sort of cheesy gift. Not being keen on a big […]

Elmer’s Craft and Tell Party- Father’s Day Crafting

I was fortunate enough to be asked to host an Elmer’s “Craft and Tell” party this month. They sent me a box loaded to gills with all kinds of crafting tools and goodies! My instructions were to CRAFT and then TELL you about it. (Well there were a few more instructions than that, but you get the […]

Spa Day Party – Favors and Food

  Along with their decorated flip flops, our spa party guests got to take home an assortment of fun bath and beauty supplies that didn’t break the bank. The highlight was meant to be these homemade bath fizzies, my daughter and I made following these directions from Martha Stewart. I will warn you that they didn’t […]

Birthday Bling – Silhouette Rhinestone T-shirt

We are in full birthday-party, church Easter party with no budget, and family Easter dinner preparation mode around here. (Yes, I’m about to lose whatever sanity that might have remained). I’m really excited about our plans for my daughter’s birthday party tomorrow, but need you to cross your fingers for me, that I can pull […]
