Ive been having some fun trying different options for backdrops lately! For this unicorn party I used tassel garlands from Oriental Trading to outline the sides of the back drop. I also used a table skirt garland (also from Oriental Trading) to line the table! Making a no sew tutu table skirt is a must for any unicorn party! Check out my no sew tutu table skirt DIY! The cut out cloud forms are also from Oriental Trading!
I don’t know how many times I have mentioned how much I LOVE my cricut explore! I own 2 and officially, all of my friends now own a cricut too! I think I mention in every single post. This thing is life saver because, you can do so many different things with it! The cricut has come through for many random things I need customized. you can literally do anything with this machine I love it!
My latest flamingo themed party needed some cool unique touches! I couldn’t find any cute flamingo tablecloths that I liked so I decided to make my own. I created a stencil using a heavy weight card stock, cut out with my amazing cricut explore machine.
What a great way to “fla-mingle” with your girlfriends this summer! I loved putting this flamingo party together.
I had so much fun putting together this glam cat themed birthday party! I kept the color scheme pretty simple with black, white and pinks.

There are a few DIY projects that I used in this party and I will be posting another one for the centerpieces I did soon too.

I have some great gift ideas for the crafter or DIY’er you may know! My “2016 Crafter’s Holiday Gift Guide” features a few products that I personally love. You will be sure to find the perfect gifts for your crafty friend or family member! Keeping this list down to 5 items was so hard!
1 Cricut Explore
First on my “2016 Crafter’s Holiday Gift Guide” is the Cricute Explore! The Cricut is a personal cutting machine. It hooks up to your computer where you can make designs for just about anything including, cards, t-shirts, banners, cell phone cases…anything! This thing is a money maker and would be perfect for any crafter wanting to start a business. I use my cricut to design whole parties sometimes. It is amazing!
2) Martha Stewart Crafts Essential Colors Glitter Set
I have a ton of glitter but, this Martha Stewart Glitter Set shines like none of the others and Martha Stewart makes it so you know its the best! I use this stuff all the time and the bottles seem to last forever because it doesnt take much.
A heat press machine goes hand and hand with the Cricut machine. You can make unique and custom designs in the software provided with the Cricut and then use a heat press machine to adhere the designs to shirts, mugs hats etc.
I love this thing because, it can make stickers labels and magnets. I use it a lot for little things I design with my cricut machine. This is a perfect gift for someone who is into scrapbooking and its very easy to use.
Gold scissors, simply because, they are gold scissors! I have my own pair that I hardly ever use but they are just cool and they are GOLD!
Hope my “2016 Crafters Holiday Guide” gave you a few ideas for the crafter in your life!
Last month was so busy for me. I had quite a few parties & photoshoots going on through out the month that I almost forgot to post about this super cute Glamping themed party I did. Having a camping themed party outdoors in Wa state is a little tricky in October but, we were able to make it happen! The rain and wind stopped just long enough for the party to be outside.
Camping themed parties are not just for boys! Glamping themed parties are becoming more and more popular these days and its such a cute, and fun theme. I have seen Glamping themed parties done different ways with “spa” like activities for the girls such as mani’s and pedi’s but, we went with a more traditional camping theme and the kids roasted hot dogs on sticks and made s’mores with their custom s’mores kits I made!
The kids really loved playing inside this pink VW camper tent.
With less than 2 weeks until Aaliyah’s Monster Mash Halloween party, I’ve already started getting together all the ideas for the fun kids Halloween party.
I choose a cute Monster Mash Halloween theme for the kids because, Aaliyah really seems to be into Halloween and I didn’t want to do anything too scary. I cant wait to see it all come together Halloween night. Of course I’ve already been planning out all the different treats we will be having at the party and this “monster popcorn” was so good! We couldn’t stop eating it. It sticky, its sweet and the added salt gives it a kettle corn taste. All the kids at your party will love it and the grown ups too!
Have you heard of Rock Box? Its a $19 monthly subscription service that lets you try out designer jewelry. It specially picked out for you by a Rocks box personal stylist. After you’ve tried it out, you have the option of sending it back or buying it at a discounted price. Rocks Box reached out to me about trying out their service for a complimentary subscription . I was not sure if I would like something like this but, after receiving my first Rocks Box, I can let you all know, I LOVE it!
After creating an account you go in and fill out a questionnaire about the different styles and designers you like and create a wishlist of jewelry. Within a week my first Rocks Box had arrived and, I loved the personalization, it was so cute!
I loved everything in my box except for the studded earrings. I am a hoops girl but,when filling out the questionnaire I clicked that I wanted to try all styles. The House Of Harlow “Phoebe Caged” necklace is my favorite item sent and I am going to go ahead and purchase it.
It retails at $45 but,with my Rocks Box subscription I only pay $34.
I really like the Rocks Box subscription a lot! I have always loved different and unique pieces of jewelry and I can see myself discovering even more cool pieces like this necklace! I definitely say check it out if you love trying different jewelry. I am looking forward to seeing whats in my next box!
