Valentine's Day Ideas for Your Kiddies

I don't know if these are fit for a school party. But they would be so fun to make with your kids for Grandma! ...Or make them yourself as a gift for your little ones! A gift at bathtime would be a great surprise! You can find the easy instructions for these on Martha Stewart

{Creationz} Book Page Decor

I don't know if any of you saw some of the book page wreaths floating around online during Christmas. I think they are so beautiful. And since I had a few boxes...ahem, a couple of old books lying around, I made myself one a while back for the mantle. It has a new home now and I wanted to make it into something other than just a wreath so I made a Book Page Mirror! I think that the pages are so pretty the way they are discolored from being so old and paper is also one of my favorite things so, I love it!
Thanks for taking time to take a peek!

{Sneak Peek} Ladybug Garden Party

Do you all remember the giveaway I did a while back? My follower Bianca was the lucky winner and decided to use her prize for her daughter's 1st Birthday in March! The theme we are going with is a Ladybug Garden Party and I am really enjoying helping her put this together.
Bianca showed me this gorgeous cake from Lisa of Sweet Disposition Cakes in Australia
and that is what we are using as our inspiration for the whole party.

Thank you Lisa for letting me share your beautiful cake with everyone!

{Creationz} Inspired Fabric Necklace

I was really inspired a while back by a beautiful necklace I saw in my Country Living magazine.
I wanted to put my own twist on it and this is what I came up with...

This one is being sent to my cousin who LOVES fashion and always has the greatest outfits.
Can't wait to see what she wears this with!

Cake Pops!

My babies made these! {I helped of course, they're a little tiny for the stove etc.,
but they had their lil' chubby hands in every step :) and I am a proud Mama}
My daughter is always yearning for her drawings or lil' creations to be featured on
"the blog". lol.
So, here you go baby. : ) xo
Incase you are all wondering what is inside all of this chocolate goodness...
{as if it matters with all the chocolate and sprinkles on the outside!}...they're cake pops!
 So, the inside is the cake and frosting.

Some may be missing tomorrow... {wink, wink}
These are so great for dessert tables and you may just be seeing them in one of my upcoming parties soon!

p.s. I know Christmas is over but we still had sprinkles.
