It has been far too long since I have posted, but I am very excited today to be sharing a different design project of sorts. I have decided to try my hand at creating my own Lego IDEAS based off their popular BrickHeadz product line. I love these quirky block shaped characters and knew the ever iconic Garden Gnome would lend themselves perfectly to being re-created in this brick format.

What’s this? An adult birthday party for once?!
My son has never been good about doing class Valentine’s. As my 6 year old daughter sat at the kitchen table happily writing hers out this weekend, I remembered back to all the whining and complaining that came with doing his at that age. I think it took us the good part of a week to actually made it through his entire class list.
I have been busy the past week baking up a storm this week to have items to donate to the school bakesale, as well as cookies to gift to neighbours and treats for us to enjoy at home over the Christmas Holidays.
I was not going to do neighbour gifts last year. I had decided to try and simplify my gift giving and spend less, but then gifts of chocolate and baking all started slowly showing up at our door. Naturally my husband asked what we were giving, so I had to scramble to come up with an easy and affordable last minute gift. Continue reading “Chocolate Candy Cane Pretzels”
It has been quite a few years since I made my original Mickey Ball Ornaments and the post is still wildly popular at this time of year. I still love them mine and am always excited to put them on our Christmas tree year after year.

My daughter has begun collecting Our Generation doll’s and I love the wide variety of accessories and playsets available for them. Everything is just that much cuter in doll size! Continue reading “Christmas Holiday DIY Playset for 18 Inch Dolls”
Today I have a bit of a holiday mash-up with my DIY Christmas Lights Advent Calendar made from plastic Easter eggs! With only a few extra craft supplies, you’ll be able to create this fun countdown for the holiday season.
My 6 year old is forever asking for playdates with her new friends from school. Admittedly I have not been the best at planning throughout the school year, so I had it in my summer plans to try and plan something special for her and a few close friends once school was out. When the opportunity came up to have two princesses from A Charmed Affair come to our house, I knew a Princess Tea Party would make the perfect playdate for Keira and the little girls from her kindergarten class.
My daughter turned 6 at the end of May and we celebrated at home with an Equestria Girls themed dance party. Keira had a My Little Pony themed party for her 4th birthday, so I will admit I was a bit disappointed when she asked me to plan another Pony themed party. Luckily I am not good at getting rid of things so I still had all the decorations from that party and was able to re-vamp a lot of the same ideas to make things feel new and exciting.
Keira loves singing and dancing, and a big part of why she loves the Equestria Girls is the music. I have downloaded a couple of the soundtracks and even find myself singing along to the catchy tunes when I am alone in the car. It only seemed natural to give the party theme and decorations a music themed spin.
