Hey What's Cooking!?!?!

Isn't this the cutest cooking set!?!?  My daughter received this in the mail (my sorority sisters are awesome).  I love, love, love the monogrammed apron and chef hat (yes, she made them), but the Melissa and Doug grill set was perfect for working on my daughter's fine motor skills!

March Madness

February is almost over and I have a month to finish all of the projects for my daughter's birthday party!  March is definitely going to be sheer madness!!!  I have checked a few things off of my "to-do" list.  One of my great friends (who seems to know how to do just about everything) helped me cut out wooden pieces to assemble a Sesame Street Sign...I hope to post pictures of that project soon.  I also came up with a cool design for some Sesame Street character bags...check out Cookie Monster and Oscar below...

My mind can't stay focused on one project for too long, so I gave myself a little distraction by creating these little St. Patrick's Day treats for my daughter and nephew.  Target has the best $1 section! I found some great Leap Frog learning activities, so I hope they will enjoy their pots of gold in a few weeks.

Okay, back to more bags.  Here is Bert and Elmo...

The gift bags are for the older children, but I will also have some babies attending the party.  I decided to decorate sand pails for them and designed Elmo onesies.

Valentine's Day 2014

Each year I look forward to celebrating Valentine's Day with my family.  It is a big holiday for us, because we are truly thankful for the strong bond and love we have within our family.

Happy Blogiversary to The Twiddles!

I was fortunate to meet my friend, Maggie when my daughter was 6 months old. Initially we met during a family photo shoot, but her beautiful personality, creativity, and talents continue inspire me each and every day. Yesterday was her blogiversary and I was honored to have the opportunity to help her celebrate!  I absolutely love her blog and all of the cute DIY ideas she comes up with.

You can check out a post on her blog that features my Valentine's Day craft below...
