I try not to think about the serious cash that we're putting out to see these films, especially when upgrading to IMAX or 3D. Fortunately we live near a theater that allows outside food within reason, so I defray our costs by creating little goodie bags and themed treat boxes to take … [Read more...]

Candy Birthday Bracelet

Good Monday, my friends (and welcome to guests from the Crazy Little Projects Birthday Bash)! I am excited to be sharing a tutorial for a fun candy birthday bracelet. This time of year gets a bit crazy around here. In addition to Snap planning, we have FOUR, yes FOUR, birthdays in May. It's a bit ridiculous... Knowing that the first of the birthdays falls the Sunday following the close of Snap, I usually start thinking about birthday ideas early in the year. It's the only way I can plan a decent celebration! So, when Amber emailed me about joining her in celebrating her blogs … [Read more...]

I thought I'd share some of my favorite Back To School parties with you from around the blogosphere and then I'll show you a fun idea to make for a back to school … [Read more...]

How to Make an Avengers Version of Thor’s Hammer

Ai-yi-yi. Three birthdays in three weeks. Not only does it make for a busy month, but it also means coming up with three VERY different birthday parties for three VERY different personalities. Anyone else have this issue? Number two is just like his dad. His birthday favors call for subtle cool, without to much in your face theme. Since it's been all Avengers all the time lately, I knew something superhero would make this one happy...Especially if it had anything to do with Thor, his favorite character. Enter Thor's hammer. Supplies. Cardboard tubes Craft paper boxes Hot glue Candy, … [Read more...]
