It’s that time of year again when we obsess about my sweet Everly’s Birthday Party. It’s so much fun to see how she is growing. She already has a clear vision of what she wants.And this year’s birthday theme is going to be, “The Swan Princess.” She has requested lots of feathers, jewels and glitter… Here is our outfit inspiration

Happy Birthday Maddox!
To create this haunted look, I tried to recycle as much as I could. I used an old fabric as a curtain and nailed it to the window, cut some paper bats from poster boards and hung it from the ceiling with some fishing line. I also used a chalkboard paper runner that I found at Target and I think it turned out pretty cute and cheap. What do you think?
I have no sewing background but I do own a sewing machine. I usually sew paper when I’m making invitations but once in a while I try fabric and lots of glue!

4 days until Halloween,and it’s crunch time at our house. Today we made this cute Mummy juice boxes for the party.
Things you need:
Eye balls (we found ours at Michael’s)
White crepe paper roll
Take straws off each juice box.
Wrap white paper around the juice and glue the end.
I love this time of year, even though we live in Southern California and the seasons might not be so noticeable. October brings lots of pumpkins, apple cider, visits to the pumpkin patch, fall crafts, Halloween and a reminder that winter is around the corner.
Last year my sister-in-law bought these treats from a Harvest Festival and this year
we decided to make a craft-playdate with the kiddos.
Things you need:
Brownie mix (follow recipe)
White yogurt covered pretzels
Food markers (we bought ours at Michael’s)
Cut brownies in square.
Place the lollipop stick in the middle of brownie to hold together the skeleton.
Use the white yogurt pretzels as the skeleton bones.
Place the marshmallow on top for the head.
Use the food markers to make the face of the skeleton.
I treasure all of Everly’s artwork. I try and save all of her artwork from pre-school all year long. At the end of the school year I go through her piles of artwork. It probably takes me about 3 days, between scanning, taking pictures and lot’s of procrastination, but the end result is priceless!
