Robot Party Decor




I had a friend request a banner and cupcake toppers for a 
Robot baby shower she was hosting. A robot WHAT?..I said, haha.

I pulled out my ONE robot stamp, matched the colors to the
baby's room and thought everything turned out pretty cute!

Just listed these in my etsy shop, so if you're hosting a 
robot party, you've got a place to look!

Making Valentines

Another year of kid friendly Valentines and this
year with two of my little people in school, we had
double the amount.

We used acrylic paint for the hand and foot prints, then
I let the older three go crazy with glitter glue and stickers.
The perfect project to send to the Grandparents
for their Valentine wedding Anniversary!



I always keep my eye peeled for fun crafts or projects for
my kiddos. Since they see Mommy crafting all the time, they
like to get involved too. I picked up three boxes of cards at
Target and the kids stuck their Valentine greeting to the front, 
then wrote and stamped inside for their friends.


We taped candy hearts onto each card with a bit of 
Washi Tape for all the classmates. The teachers and school
staff will be getting these fun chocolate -one is a million- candy bars 
and other assortment of Valentine chocolate candies.


My daughter made her Valentine box about two weeks ago
and just jazzed up the heart banner with a bit of glitter glue.

St. Patty's Day Banner

I'm a BIG fan of March...
not only is it my Birthday month
BUT
it's also home to St. Patty's Day!
 (and I just so happen to be fond of the color green)


I picked up these cute little felt clovers last year
and never got around to using them but knew I
wanted to make a banner, sooooo...


step 1. I used a small piece of washi tape at the end of my bakers
twine to keep it from unraveling and easier to thread through the holes

step 2. you can either thread your twine behind or infront of your banner
pieces, I usually choose to put it behind as I don't want it to be the focal point

step 3. since my felt pieces are bigger than the paper pennants, I ripped off
just the middle portion of the already sticky backs
and stuck it down leaving the sides still intact

step 4. I used my Big Shot and Sizzix letter set to create the phrase I wanted
my banner to say


Isn't it cute?!

Love Note Challenge - LeroyLime
 My hubby of 10 years, yup, count 'em - TEN!

and is the epitome of handsome. When I met the guy, 
he didn't even own a pair of jeans!
Love Note Challenge - LeroyLime
 He always knows how to make me laugh, is my true
knight in shining armor, a wonderful husband, AMAZING
father to our four little people and just knows how to 
make a girl feel special - a keeper for sure!
Love Note Challenge - LeroyLime
We both have quite a fondness for coffee, so hopefully
he won't make me prove that I love him more than 
coffee - haha!

Twelve years ago, he asked for my number in the most
unique way... "would you like to go pick a basket
of daisies sometime?" - took my breath away, literally!

How to Organize Glitter and Twine with Washi Tape



I've been starting to not like my bookshelf lately, so decided to do
a bit of cleaning, organizing, purging and prettying it up a bit. 

I've had a few rolls of bakers twine in these handy shaker glass cups 
for awhile now...but have entirely way too many rolls of twine to contain
each one, so I picked a few of my 'go-to' colors and added a bit of coordinating 
Washi Tape to jazz up the jars a bit. I love how the rolls stay nice and neat and
you can pull out as much or as little as you need. I tried using the large sugar
shaker jars like this but found that the twine would get caught and I ended up 
just ripping off the little sugar flap anyway. 


I also was tired of my old labeling system for my Embossing Powder
and Glitter. I used to have a hanging tag attached on each corner but 
they would get flipped or bent in moves...so when in Rome (or Minot)
what better time to #Washi than now, right?!

I pulled out a tiny set of letter stamps, and inked them up with 
Black Momento Ink. To get a nice straight stamped word, I
ripped off pieces of Washi Tape and placed them on a glass
cutting board. The Washi peeled off perfectly and stuck
straight onto the little reusable plastic containers. 

Each container has it's own plastic spoon for ease of shaking
the embossing powder or glitter onto whatever image I'm working
on at the moment. The extra powder or glitter is easily tapped
 off and falls right back into the container, no mess, no fuss!



 I've almost finished with the rest of the shelves and love
how 'pretty' they look now! 

How do you store your bakers twine? Embossing Powder? or Glitter?
I'd love to see!
