Mashtini Bar Birthday

Back in November we decided to throw an impromptu birthday dinner for my sister-in-law. I’m sharing it with you now, because I think it would make a perfect New Years Eve dinner. In fact, I’m planning on doing a reprisal of the Mashtini bar for our New Years Eve celebration. What is a mashtini bar? […]

Sparkling New Year Printable 2013

I posted this printable label last year for New Years. I decided to update it to say 2013, so you could use it this year if you would like. It could make a fun New Year’s Eve party invitation if you wanted to write the party details on the back of the tag. Or maybe […]

New Year’s Mantle

  I was getting ready to post about how organized and on the ball I am going to be this year when I got distracted by sparkly things! I love Valentine’s Day–I do. I blog about it all of the time. But when the stores fill with Valentine’s merchandise before Christmas is even over, it […]

Happy New Year, 2012!

Just popping in to say Happy New Year! We celebrated by throwing a make-shift celebration with some friends in one of the side rooms of the church while the adults took turns chaperoning the youth dance there. It was a fun night! The kids came in for the balloon drop and were so excited (yes, […]
