Halloween decorating on a budget

I LOVE decorating the outside of my house for Halloween, but why do all of the decorations sold in stores have to break the bank? I have this huge tree in my front yard, and it’s really hard to decorate. So this year I decided I’m decorating the underside of it. I knew I wanted…


Our adoption story.

There was a time in my life the was very uncertain. When you hear people who say “I struggled through life”, that was me. I was a mother, and have always been a mother. I knew from they day I found out I was pregnant that I needed to care & nurture a human being…


I should’ve been a party planner

I love parties! Of course I do, I mean I run an Etsy shop filled with party decor & invites, but seriously I love parties! I love the planning, assembling, & finally the look on everyones face when they see it all come together. No occasion is too small to have a little party for. Every…


Design Space 3 Hack

For anyone who uses the Cricut machine, they will know that there was a new design space that just came out. Now with that came some pretty cool new additions, but it also came with some faults. Case in point the new P&C feature. While you get to print larger images & save paper, you…


Huge milestone!

  Hard to believe that my dream of being my own boss 4 years ago would bring me to this accomplishment today! I recently did an interview for a blog and it was about being an entrepreneur. This was what I said: 1. Please introduce yourself and tell me about your business. When did you…


Life’s Journey

Way back when, when I first started my journey of small business owner, I sold a whole Sesame Street party decor package to a lady. She received the decor & loved them! After the party I was tagged in her social media pictures. What beautiful family, party & pictures! I hoped next year I’d be doing…


Graduation in my house? 

I cannot believe that it’s coming to the time in my life where I get to host graduation parties! Okay, okay maybe I’m being a little dramatic, I mean it’s ONLY 5th grade gradution. But this milestone is worth celebrating. 5th grade graduation, do you remember it? That time in your life you were no…


Are disco parties still in?

Every year my kids set off into their imaginations about what their next birthday party theme will be. Trianiti’s birthday is in January, she generally gives me the theme late October, because this DIY mama needs time to plan and to make sure it’s extra special. The one thing I’ve found out about party planning,…


How New York City changed my life

I know what you’re thinking, of course it did, NYC is AMAZING …. Sadly I have to disagree! I’m not a city gal, I’m a down-home-back-country-sit-by-a-bonfire-at-the-end-of-the-night kind of gal. The hustle of the city was a bit overwhelming to me, and the rats are way bigger than I ever dreamed of. So why did NYC…


My work station

My kids call this the “work station”, I call it “the dungeon”, but this is my office. Where all of the party decor & invites are made and now where I blog. This office isn’t one of those pretty designed spaces that you see on HGTV, flip or flop, or in any home furnishing magazine….
