• About Me

Have you started planning and/or thinking about gift ideas for this holiday season yet? I haven’t and I totally need to. I usually have thought about it and have a general idea of the gifts I plan to mail to family and friends by this point in the year. Not this year. It hasn’t even been a blip on my radar yet. It needs to be because I need some time to make things and get things ready to ship.

I love these great gift ideas! There are more than 15 DIY ideas for Christmas gifts (or anytime of the year). Most of them are quick, inexpensive and easy, too!

To that end, I’ve collected over 15 great gift ideas to give both of us some inspiration.  I’ve got ideas that for you that are personalized gifts, hostess gift ideas, gifts for or from the kitchen, family gift ideas, ideas of gifts that most any woman would like and even an adorable baby gift idea. Whew…you ready to be inspired? I am. Hopefully you will see something that will be perfect for someone on your list or at least inspire an idea for you.  View full post »

    AWESOME ideas! I pinned several. Gotta tell ya, I’m impressed that you are already in holiday mode, even if it is only to post these ideas. I can’t even reconcile my brain to the fact summer is over. This year has been such a crazy one. Time has flown. Thanks for the inspiration and the kick in the pants. ;-)ReplyCancel

“I participated in an Influencer Activation Program on behalf of Influence-Central for Littlest Pet Shop. I received a sample to facilitate my review and a thank you item for participating.

Have you ever needed to put a birthday party together but not had the time or energy to do a Pinterest worthy party? I’m going to assume I can hear a chorus of, “All the time!” Or, “Isn’t that what all birthday parties are like….who has the time?” Whew…it’s not just me. Today I’ve got some cute, creative and super easy to pull off birthday party ideas for girls. (Boys may like them as well, but since I have girls, I know they will like them.) Oh and don’t forget, at the end of the post, I have a free printable to help you pull off your own Littlest Pet Shop Party!

Love this Littlest Pet Shop birthday party! So many fun and creative birthday party ideas for girls. #LittlestPetShop #MC #Sponsored

Last week my youngest daughter turned 8 years old. She had opted not to have a party, but then the opportunity for this post came up and she begged me to do a party for her and for the blog. How can I say no to that? I didn’t. I also wanted to keep the party low-key because I didn’t have the time, money or energy to do a big party. She also wasn’t supposed to get a big party. She had opted for no party and more presents. She is one smart kid, knowing that she could get a party by having it be for the blog.;-)

To get started, I went to the Hasbro website and learned a bit about Littlest Pet Shop because although my girls watch the TV show and have some of the toys, I have totally not paid attention. On the site, I learned a little bit about the characters that are part of the show and the toy line. After that, I easily came up with some quick, creative and inexpensive party ideas. Perfect trifecta. View full post »

    How cute! My four year old hasn’t heard of My Littlest Pet Shop yet (at least, I don’t think she has!), but I know that she would have had a blast at your party! Honestly, I probably would have enjoyed myself. :-)

    I especially love the creative fashion show.ReplyCancel

    What a great idea to have a DIY fashion show! My 8yo twins would love this. They watch that show and love animals. I love all your creative ideas :)ReplyCancel

I know Halloween is this week, but I couldn’t resist giving you one more idea to add to your Halloween recipes.

We love Halloween Recipes! Halloween food is so much fun. This is a crazy easy recipe to make bones to go with your Halloween dinner.

As I’ve told you, we love to play with our food at Halloween. There are just so many fun, spooky, and cute ideas. It makes dinner so much more fun! Last week I showed you one of our Halloween recipes for eyeballs.

We also love to eat bones with our dinners this time of year. They are the perfect accompaniment to so many meals AND so yummy! They are also crazy easy to make. Perfect! Let me show you how to make your own bones for dinner.  View full post »

You ready to think about Thanksgiving yet? Yeah, I know Halloween hasn’t even happened yet, but I’m ready to show you some Thanksgiving crafts. I thought I could show them to you a little early this year to give you some time to pin and actually make them instead of just pinning.:-)Today, I’m going to show you the beginnings of a what I think I’m going to do for my Thanksgiving table.

Oh Thanksgiving crafts! These are the most darling diy tea lights. They are easy to make and will be a great addition to my Thanksgiving decorations.

Aren’t the little tea lights I made so stinking cute!? They are going to be the perfect addition down the center of my Thanksgiving table. I have a few other things I think I’m going to make to go with these, which of course I will share with you. You know I will be keeping it simple (like this simple fall centerpiece I did last year), but simple doesn’t have to me boring or ugly. No way! View full post »

Do you have fun with food and make fun dinners for your family? We do….well at least at Halloween. It is just a fun time of year with so many great Halloween recipes and fun ways to play with your food. Today I’m sharing part of our family favorite dinner in October. We love to eat eyeballs!

We have so much fun with Halloween food! This is an easy Halloween dinner idea that the whole family eats and loves!

This year we get to eat eyeballs in cauldrons…..bwahahaha! Yep, I know I didn’t fool you that I’m all evil. But it was fun to type out that evil laugh anyway.;-)This is a super simple dinner that cooks up in minutes and everyone at my house loves.  View full post »
