Butterfly Birthday Party

By the time my daughter’s second birthday came around in January, I was pretty burned out from doing my son’s Lego Batman Party, then having Thanksgiving and Christmas. I normally go all out for parties – creating a lot of the decorations, invitations, games, etc. myself – but this one I went the store bought route. The only thing I created myself was the butterfly cake. I purchased the invitations from Dollar Tree. They had . . . Continue reading

Scrapbook Layout: Sick Baby

When I scrapbook, especially for my kids scrapbooks, I want to make sure I am capturing their real lives. I do try to focus on all of the positive things that happen in their lives, but in real life, sometimes bad, sad or not so fun things happen as well.  This is a layout I did of my son when he was a baby and was really sick. I started with the striped paper. I . . . Continue reading

Camping Cake

Last year for my husband’s birthday, I made a camping cake to celebrate his birthday. This was still my personal blog and I realized I never blogged about it. This cake came together fast and I was so happy with how it turned out! I started with two round 8″ chocolate cakes. I layered chocolate buttercream between the two layers. To create the frosting for the outside of the cake, I dyed buttercream icing blue . . . Continue reading

It is hard to believe, but my oldest is starting kindergarten in less than a month! It is a little bittersweet to send him off to ‘real’ school.
