Daniel Tiger Theme Party in the Works

Daniel Tiger Trolley Project

I really thought we’d be doing a Peppa Pig birthday for Miss Elliott, who turns 3 in May, but she insists she wants Daniel Tiger. So, Daniel Tiger it is! PBS has a page with some really cute party ideas, free printables and graphics so I’ll be using some of those resources to create more great things for her party. I loved the trolley so here is my version, which just needs a few more finishing to be complete. I didn’t think {Read More}

My Glowing Pumpkin Totem Prop for Under $20

Candyland Studio Pumpkin Totem Prop

I can appreciate some of the bloody and true Halloween horror decor, but I’m more of a fun, sparkly, colorful, goth glam girl myself. Especially with little kids at home.

Black & White Striped Pillow

This project is a tiny addition to a project I will be sharing soon, so this post will be short and sweet.  I can’t wait to show you the “bigger” project. =) A year or so ago I bought new pillows for our living room.

Insane Asylum Plaque

Meckley Family Insane Asylum Laser Engraved Granite Plaque

It’s alllllmost October, so the countdown to Halloween is ON! I’ve been working on some projects that I will be sharing with you soon. =) First up is a lovely Insane Asylum plaque that I just put on my front porch yesterday. I’m on Pinterest A LOT. Can you relate? Not only do I browse during the day, but I spent countless minutes hours every night when I try to fall asleep. (Sometimes I’m not sure if it helps or {Read More}
