{Christmas} Oh How They Grow

Hi Friends,
I hope you all had a merry time doing your Black Friday shopping. My friends and I were on the streets by 3 AM and in the stores by 4:00. We had a ball.

Christmas 2006

I was looking back at old photos of my girls and thinking how quickly they grow. It seems like yesterday that we were in changing diapers and running after toddlers, and now I have a tween and one that thinks she's twenty!

Christmas 2009

Oh by the way, be sure to stop by my etsy shop to see the latest game and party packs ;)

{Christmas} Free Gift

Happy Thanksgiving Friends!
I've been busy planning Thursday's meal, hosting bible study at our home, working on an exciting project for Coca-Cola that involves a certain Square in New York, and of course just being a Mom. Of course the last is my favorite thing!

I'll share more as I can on the Coca-Cola project. But, it's pretty hush hush.

I wanted to give you all a couple of Freebies to use this Holiday Season. My treat to say Thank You for your business and in many cases dear friendships. I've included a Free Christmas Card and bookmarks. Simply click onto each one to enlarge and then print onto card stock and cut out.

I hope you all have a Blessed Thanksgiving and that as we enter the Christmas Season we all remember that Jesus is The Reason for The Season!

{Birthday} Roxy's Paris Party

Hi Friends,
My oldest turned 10 today. She chose a very special present this year. A tween's dream come true, a Parisian Bedroom. I'll share pictures of the room soon, but today I wanted to show off her party decor.

We matched the pink to the color of her new pinker than pink walls. The invitations and all the other party favors featured bits of French here and there. What party would be complete with out customized water bottle labels?

We even had our own little Eiffel Tower atop the cup cake stand.
For the pictures above the Desert buffet I simply found public domain images online and then printed them in black and white. Add a couple of Dollar Tree $1.00 picture frames and... magnifique!

The cupcakes were made from boxed cake mix plus some snappy food color work. And the peppermint Malted Milk Balls added the little pink speckles I needed.

I also designed a Pin The Tail on The Poodle for the younger crowds.

Printing prices very depending on where you live, but for me to print all the stuff you see here, plus some, most of which was on card stock, cost only $13.00 at my local print shop. In my opinion, that's a deal! Just add some swank square black paper plates from Target or Wal-Mart and you're done.

{Christmas} Party Packs & Paper Dolls

Hi friends,
I've been busy whipping up some new fun holiday items for my etsy shop. My shop will be offering a variety of Christmas party packs, including one that's especially close to my heart, The Faithful. It's Christ centered. I'll be posting those soon.

I'm also working on Pilgrim paper dolls for Thanks giving and some Christmas paper dolls that are a hoot!

My oldest Roxy will be celebrating her 10Th birthday soon and has her mommy creating a birthday pack fit for any Parisian girl! It will be available soon.
