It’s the time of month again that I get to share a fun paper filled project with you! I love wreaths, and paper, and Christmas. So creating holiday wreaths diy style seemed like a natural fit for me. As you can see, I’ve already been secretly planning my Christmas decorations – and I am so excited to be adding a little plum into the mix. I really love the blues and pinks of years past, but I’m ready for a little change – and a new color is always a fun choice! I love the plum, but I am also thinking a little pale pink would pair nicely with the ensemble. [Read more...]
After making our Trick or Treat bags yesterday, I just knew I had to use these cute little designs for some other fun. So, I came up with these Halloween favor ideas! I have never made a pillow box before, so it was time that I tried it out, and – I love it! It still amazes me how well these boxes stay together without glue at the top or bottom.
So, I figured a few of you would be looking for last minute party favors or carnival prizes. Hopefully this will help out! I’m still in denial that Halloween is just next week. Between now and Halloween I think we have 4 parties to attend, and trick or treat. What are your plans for the next 9 days?
To make a Trick or Treat Halloween Pillow Box you will need:
Kraft lightweight cardstock paper
Glue gun and glue
Free Printable Halloween Favor ideas box
1: Download and print out the pillow box favor. 2: Cut out the favor box and score it along the dotted lines. 3: Fold the box together and glue the side tab. 4: Fold in the bottom flap and fill the box with candy and treats. 5: Fold in the top flap.
I am one of those lame parents that has never bought their child a trick or treat pumpkin or bag. Every year I see them at the store and just can’t bring myself to buying one. I’m not sure why I haven’t. I guess I could never decide if I should buy a pumpkin and store it year after year or to buy a new one every year. Anyways, the decision was too much, and so I never bought a plastic pumpkin!
So, now to over compensate for that decision, I have decided to start a new tradition where we decorate brown paper bags every year for trick or treating. And, while it doesn’t look like the girls helped with these bags, they actually did. They each picked out what picture they wanted on their bag, and I created some design around it. Can you guess whos is whos?

Isn’t Halloween just a fabulous holiday? There is so much that you can do with it. While I love pumpkins, orange, and cute little costumes, sometimes it is fun to change things up and take Halloween in a different style – such as Day of the Dead! I put together this fun little bar cart for a Halloween movie Family Night. [Read more...]

What would make a better Halloween party than a Magic Party? I couldn’t think of much better. Magic and Halloween seem to go together pretty well. And, with the help of a magician, pizza, and candy, this party went together quickly and easily.
This has got to be one of my favorite parties we’ve ever hosted. There is something so magical about.. well.. magic! I’ll be sharing the actual party tomorrow, but today we are talking about prep work. While most parties have plenty of prep, a magic party has a little extra – magic tricks for kids!
And, to start, you have to use these adorable Poof! Postcard Party Invitations from Minted! They set a great stage for our party.
I also picked up some novelty magic tricks, such as, this Ball and Vase Trick and Crazy Cube. Both of these were easy to do. And, I bought enough of the tricks to teach the kids and pass out later as party favors (bonus!)
While I was very lucky enough to have a brother come and present a magic show, I wanted to also make this easy enough that anyone could host their own party and present a magic show. So, along with the help of my brother, I’ve compiled 4 fairly easy magic tricks to teach you. [Read more...]

Have your kids decided on their Halloween costumes ideas yet? Like always, my kids are changing their minds almost daily. We almost never complete our costumes until the night of the first Halloween party. Luckily, I still have a few weeks. While I nag my children about deciding on a costume and then not changing their minds (that’s the hard part), hopefully I will be able to put together a few Halloween costume ideas that will capture your child’s imagination – such as an Aviator costume!
