Horse Theme 8 Year Old Birthday Party

Putting this party together was fun, exciting and draining all at the same time!
I enjoy the "research" of party planning, I enjoy the creativity that flows when party planning, I enjoy the resourcefulness of party planning, I enjoy the learning of party planning, but most of all, I enjoy the final product and it all coming together and my daughter being awed by it all.

First we did pictures out front while the girls arrived. It was soooo hot that we made sure to have cold drinks on the porch!
We covered hay bales with some pretty pink, turquoise and gold fabric, hung a "Cowgirl" banner, put out a few decorations and drinks and snapped away.

Neapolitan Cupcakes for Teacher Appreciation Gifts

Sometimes I get really great ideas at the last minute, and this is one of them that kept me up baking until 3am. I wanted to make a yummy cupcake and put it in a cute gift box for my kids to take to school for their teachers for teacher appreciation week.

Faux Mirror Tutorial

My sister, Mashaide, found this image on Pinterest and wanted to create something like it for her photo booth.  Since my family LOVES Halloween, I have a very full Halloween Pinterest board and I remembered seeing tombstones and other Halloween decor made from insulation foam board.  (BTW these people are awesome at Halloween!)  After brainstorming we thought, "Why not create our own faux mirror using insulation foam board?"

Glow Stick Valentines

For Valentine's parties this year we wanted to make non-candy gifts and this is what my girls and I came up with.

I saw this post on Fabulessly Frugal and I knew I wanted to to use glow sticks.

Freezing Fog

We had freezing fog yesterday and although it's cold, it leaves everything frosty and beautiful.
I just had to take some pictures of the beautiful frosty trees.

I'm loving the contrast between the dark and white.  Nature is so beautiful!!
