Our little animal lover turned 4 in February. We celebrated with a woodland/forest theme at the park.
The Invitation (available in my shop)
Acorns (Hershey’s Kiss, Mini Vanilla Wafer, and Chocolate Chip)
Favors (mini wooden birdhouses from Michaels}
The kids had fun painting their birdhouses.
I created two fun valentines for the girls to share with their classmates this year. For the older ones, I came up with Tic-Tac-Toe Valentines:
Tic-tac-toe printable topper and board are available here.
For the younger ones, we did animal theme for my animal lover. She loves playing with these plastic animals so it was a very fitting Valentine for her class. I used the Wild About You design available here.
Well it’s a few months later, but I wanted to share my Christmas teacher gifts from December. I purchased Red Box codes and added a package of popcorn and SnoCaps. I wrapped all 3 pieces in a printable download and taped it tightly to keep all pieces from sliding out. It makes the perfect gift for teachers, aids, bus drivers, and co-workers!
A friend of mine started selling Jamberry Nails (here). If you haven’t seen them before, they are adhesive designs that you heat and apply to your nails for a fancy manicured look in minutes. I have used these on my young girls and they work great. They stay on for weeks – much longer than nail polish. Plus, they have tons of fun designs. I personally have also used them on my toes and kept the same pair on for over 2 months!
Anyways, I love them and recently needed a cute idea for wrapping a gift card. I came up with this TOE-tally awesome nail jar.
It doesn’t stay cold for long here in Texas, but I had to do something with the piles of coats we have accumulated. Since I transformed our coat closet into a game closet, I had to make room somewhere else for the coats. We had some unused wall space in the garage, so I came up with this idea…
I took picture of my process of painting these letters. I’ll post that tutorial soon.
We started 2014 with an exciting milestone – Taylor lost her first tooth! It was such a fun moment in our house. This tooth had been wiggly for months so I had plenty of time to scope out ideas on Pinterest. The tooth pillow was done months in advance (we really thought this tooth was going to fall out long before it did). To start our tooth fairy tradition, I created a fun receipt that will help document the dates that the girls loose their teeth. I’ve made it available in my store – instant download, type in your child’s details and print. Don’t forget to sprinkle with a little glitter for a magical touch!

Wow, what a month we had in December! From parties to a marathon of Christmas visits and visitors. We stayed busy! Although the decorations have come down, I did want to share a few of my favorite projects I accomplished during the craziness….
Christmas Berry Wreath made by gluing craft berries to a wooden letter and hanging with burlap.
Mini Christmas Tree in a Santa Pot (painted red, glued white fuzz and 2 buttons)
Henry, our elf, appeared Dec. 1 and had a month full of exciting adventures in our house. The girls were so excited to wake up each morning to find him. Here are a few of the places we found him this year.
Our little six year old requested a mermaid themed birthday party this year. Here’s a look at the details of her special under the sea party:

And of course, my birthday tradition of creating a custom photo memory (available here)
Yesterday, I announced that we are now offering custom wall vinyl in our shop. Here is a video tutorial on how to apply your vinyl wall decal to the toughest surface – textured walls.
