Dinosaur Train Party

My neighbor turned 2 and he celebrated with a Dinosaur Train themed party.

The invitations were designed to look like tickets

 His mom hung one of the banners on the front door

Stickers were made for the goody bags. They said "Thanks for making my party Dino-mite"

 "Happy Birthday" Banner

The neighbor served pretzel sticks for dinosaur bones

deviled eggs for dinosaur eggs

Gold fish were for the "fish"-avores 

vegetable platter for the herbivores 

They picked these up from the local craft store and assembled them to hang above the kitchen counter

we bought white fondant and used coloring to get all the colors. We used cookie cutters for the different shapes and added the figurines to top it all off

 I think little buddy was very happy with his party

I don't think there was a single little girl who didn't have a Frozen birthday party this year. Frozen is all the rage currently and it doesn't appear to be going anywhere anytime soon. My daughter is no exception. She loves Elsa and Anna and when asked what kind of party she wanted I knew the answer before she even responded.


For the cake I used white fondant and cookie cutters and topped it off with the figurines

"Do you want to build a snowman" station. I had large and small marshmallows, candy corn, pretzels, and chocolate chips. You can use any anything though that resembles snowman parts

The kids really seemed to enjoy making them

 "We finish each others sandwiches". Sandwiches were served as the main lunch item

I ordered white cotton candy from Oriental trading and made stickers to cover their label. 
Thank you "snow" much for coming
I also attached Olaf stickers which I also ordered from Oriental Trading

Celery and carrots were served as Sven's snacks

Roaring 20's Union Banquet

This year's Local 3590 banquet was a Roaring 20's theme. I was enlisted to make the invitations and center pieces. At the end of the night my husband took home the Brotherhood Award. I'm so proud of him.


For the center pieces I collected a bunch of wine bottles, painted them black and bought gold glitter spray paint to give them an ombre look

added some feathers and pearls and voila!

I'm about 5 months pregnant in this photo

Bats, monsters, and ghosts

OH MY!! One of my favorite holidays is Halloween and I just love making treats. This year my daughter helped me make these cute little creatures. 

We used the Cricut to make the monsters and stuffed them with Skittles but you can use any small candy

These I drew and cut by hand

and we made little ones for my daughter's classmates at school. They were a big hit!

Wizard of Oz Print

I was approached about making a print for a baby nursery that was Wizard of Oz theme. I was told the mother-to-be's favorite quote and the rest was up to me. I'm really happy with how it turned out and only hope the mother loves it to!

A little monkey is turning one

Got an order out of New Jersey for these cute monkey invites for someone special's 1st birthday. 


"I am 1" banner

Table tents and water bottle labels

Cheers to 30!

My sister threw a 30th birthday party for her husband. The theme-BEER Tasting! It was so much fun and everyone really seemed to enjoyed themselves. Everything was beer themed down to the Blue Moon cupcakes, beer candied bacon and a beer cheese dip
