B is for Baby-Baby Shower

My creative and very talented next door neighbor Kim threw me a baby shower when I was pregnant with my son. She did such a wonderful job I couldn’t stop looking at the decor. I was dazzled by how cute everything was! Recently, I asked her if I could share it with you since the

11 Steps to Throwing a Fun and Stress-Free Party

  Planning a party can be a bit overwhelming. Especially if you really want it to be memorable and fun. I’ve found that breaking the party planning and prepping down into 11 steps makes everything go much more smoothly. By following these steps you can have an amazing, yet stress-free party! 1.

American Flag Collage

I adore American Flags. I found these vintage(ish) looking flags and decided to make them into a little collage. I needed a centerpiece for my 4th of July Mantel and this was the perfect craft for it. This was VERY easy to make and only took me 10-15 minutes. First, I took a frame I

How to Make an American Flag Easy No-Sew Banner

I love the 4th of July! To celebrate I made this vintage American Mantel, an American Flag collage, and an American Flag Banner. This banner took me about 10 minutes to make and was very inexpensive. I got lucky and found all of the flags at a thrift store. But they all can be found

My Little Pony Party

A few months ago, I was sitting at my kitchen table trying to make something out of this craft (which unfortunately didn’t really happen) and I saw a Pony in my neighbors yard. The pony had a hot pink mane and tail and a sparkly pink and black saddle. I saw my neighbor Kim’s daughter and daughter’s friends

Kitchen Themed Bridal Shower

My wonderful cousin is getting married soon and my family wanted to throw her a shower. We all spent less than $50.00 each and it turned out super fun and cute. If you haven’t read my post on how to throw a nice shower for less than $50.00 and you have a shower to plan,

Burlap Spring Wreath

I LOVE spring. So to celebrate I created this Burlap Spring Wreath. First, start with a wreath frame, burlap, a nest, eggs (found at Walmart), and vintage Easter grass (found at DollarTree). Next, wrap the wreath frame with the burlap. I left a bit of it out on both sides to resemble a bow. Then, secure

Peter Rabbit Candy-Free Easter Basket

In our family, all of the kids (and sometimes the adults) go Easter egg hunting. Everyone usually ends up with quite a bit of candy. To try to make things a little more healthy, a few of my blogging friends and I each created a no-candy Easter basket. (I’ve included photos and links to all of

Little Peanut Elephant Baby Shower

Recently, my friends and I put on a baby shower for our friend Ashley. Kim, Rebecca, Julie, JoLynn, and I all pitched in. It’s amazing what you can do as a collaborative team, and the cuteness that can be created together. The theme was about celebrating Ashley’s little peanut. And of course we decorated using

Peter Rabbit Baby Shower

I just adore Peter Rabbit and his siblings Flopsy, Mopsy, and Cotton Tail. Beatrix Potter (the author) was an amazing woman who had a fairly difficult life. Ever since reading the book as a little girl I’ve liked it, but it wasn’t until Amazon (here) and has 4.75 stars out of 710 reviews! Its a

Burlap Easter Bunny Banner

Recently, I made this burlap Easter bunny banner. And I just love it. Although I wanted to hold off, I couldn’t wait until closer to Easter to share it with you. It was very easy to make (little to no craft experience needed) and took me about 30 minutes. And it was super inexpensive! First

Pot o’ Gold Treasure Hunt for Kids

   I come from a long line of Irish ancestors. There is common Irish saying that goes like this: ‘A Pound of Pluck is Worth a Ton of Luck’. Pluck means courage, bravery, and determination. I was thinking of a fun activity to do for kids based on this saying and came up with this
