Black and White Pumpkins #TrickYourPumpkin

TrickYourPumpkin Black and White Halloween Decor

My pumpkins got a sparkly makeover for Halloween and I'm pretty smitten with my new Halloween vignette. I'm a big fan of black and white Halloween decorations, just take a look at my Mummy and Me Halloween Soiree (which by the way was featured in the October issue of Yum Food & Fun for Kids Magazine!)  While black and white is classic every now and then you have to add a little bit of pizzazz and #trickyourpumpkin.  And in my opinion you can never go wrong with gold glitter!

Fall is such a fun time of year, it's packed with traditions, activities and change, I love it!  Ever since my first visit to an apple orchard in upstate New York I've been obsessed with this quintessential fall tradition.  Just picture it, a hayride up the hillside to rows and rows of beautiful trees filled with bright shiny red apples just begging to be picked. This month's Cricut Design Space Star challenge is all about parties, so I thought it would be fun to share some fun and easy ideas … [Read more...]

The start of a new school year is upon us and soon my kiddos will be back in school and not nestled under my protective wing of motherhood.  Don't get me wrong, I can't wait for them to soar, but sometimes I'm overcome with anxiety and wonder "Will they make friends?"  "Will they be a good friend?"  "Are they going to succeed?"

Easter Bunny Canvas

Easter Bunny Canvas Giggles Galore

I recently hosted a craft night and guest could make one of three projects, including my easy Easter Bunny Canvas.  This is a fun project that can be customized to suit your personal style and taste.  I'm not really a pastel kind of gal.  I like using bright colors, like I did for our Easter Brunch and Egg Hunt.  I wanted my Easter Bunny Canvas to be a bold statement and the bright colors just make me happy. I painted my canvas a bright aqua and used colorful patterned paper from the new Amy … [Read more...]
