Hello everyone! Happy February! This month is going to fly by super fast…considering its the 7th of the month before I even get around to blogging! I have lots of stuff going on right now, and I have some possible personal life decisions coming up over the next week, and I will have to sit down and figure out all of the pros and cons of the situation to see which path to choose. I’ll talk more about it later. 🙂
Right now I wanted to show you some highlights from Emma’s 5th Birthday Party last month. She had a Princess Tea Party theme, and we made some tea party snacks together and a few simple decorations that the girls absolutely loved.
Princess Tea Party Ideas:
We created red velvet cupcakes, complete with pink frosting and pearls and flowers on top! The flowers were created by rolling out gum drops and gummy rings! The girls really loved helping make those.

Welcome to a new week. 🙂 I was lucky enough to have a weekend at home to catch up on some organizing that needed to be done. Still have a LONG ways to go, but I’m glad I got a little start.
I also have been working online, trying to learn more about all of this blog stuff and SEO and Adworks and Analytics, LOL it is all like a foreign language to me, but I am interested and eager to learn more. I’m so happy to say that as of right now I have over 280 combined followers….thanks for all of the love! If you have any great tips on how you have been growing your blog leave me a comment! 🙂
I’ve been absolutely loving looking at all of the cute Halloween decorations and inspiration around the web lately. I whipped together a little decoration of my own today, the best part was it didn’t cost me anything. We happened to have a couple big plum tree branches that we had to cut when we extended our fence ( you can read the beginnings of that project here. ) and I created ‘spooky’ trees surrounding the bench we have on our front porch. Didn’t turn out too bad….now all we need are some pumpkins!
Oh, and one final thought, I finally broke down and finished setting up my Twitter Account ….so if you prefer updates via Tweets, I’ll be keepin ya updated that way too!
Check back soon, I have a cute Halloween kid craft in the works…..stay tuned. 🙂

So, I have an old sewing machine that was given to me by my Mom, but it is missing a piece and I need to take it in. So I was super upset that I couldn’t finish my project….until I remembered that I bought my daughter a cheap-o Hello Kitty sewing machine last Christmas, and it had just been sitting there in her closet! So yes, it was a total pain, but I managed to sew the banner with a battery operated machine for little girls!
So I sewed the hems of the pink fabic strip, but didn’t bother with the triangles. I’m not a perfectionist and am pretty sure a little ADD, because I just can’t do a project that takes me longer than a day….it turned out fine though for what we are using it for!
I’ve also made a couple tablecloths for her party, and am also working on a Bean Bag toss board…. I will be sure to post pics of those soon, and of course pictures from her slumber party!
