Father’s Day Gift Card Box


After Mother’s Day was a creative flop this year and I failed to come up with any amazingly adorable projects for two very special grandmothers, I am on a mission to fix that this Father’s Day.  Last year, Little Bug made this sweet footprint heart card that is now framed on Mr. Mountaineer’s desk.  Every time […]

St. Patrick’s Day Rainbow Candy Cones and Free Printable Rainbow Tags


Rainbows and St. Patrick’s Day.  I don’t know – they just seem to go together.  Although I was never a rainbow fan as a kid, except maybe with Rainbow Brite for a few months, today I love the bright and bold colors this combination brings to a celebration or children’s space.  It’s wonderful that such a […]

How to Make a Diaper Cake Baby Gift


We celebrated a very special friend’s baby shower over the weekend and, although with the move I’ve been trying to curb my creative crafting juices lately, I really wanted to make something special for her.  Usually when I find out a good friend is expecting, I start working on a cross stitch project.  Then sometime […]

How to Make a Yarn Pom Pom


I’ve always had a fascination with these tiny balls of fluff known as yarn pom poms. Whether strung in a garland or used as a party decoration, I love yarn pom poms. One of my goals this year was to learn how to make a yarn pom pom. I started by reading a large number […]

How Do I Love Thee? Valentine’s Day Paper Chain Countdown


Countdowns are a great way to look forward to different events in life.  We count down to birthdays, the births of babies and Christmas.  Since Little Bug loved her advent calendar this year, I wanted to create a special way to countdown to Valentine’s Day. Inspired by the romantic sonnet, “How do I Love Thee? […]

Holiday Craft Features in Bird’s Party Magazine


The holidays are upon us and, like every year, I am quite excited.  We started off the season early this weekend by baking sugar cookies and finding new Christmas music for our IPod.  Always need to be ready in the car for the unexpected holiday traffic jam! If you like celebrating and entertaining around the […]

Barnyard Animal Sound Stamped Utensils


One thing I love about designing parties is working in elements of a design in unexpected ways.  Guests get little surprises as they enjoy the event and I can come up with creative ways to add different details. When designing Little Bug’s Barnyard Bash party, I wanted to use animal sounds in as many places […]

Free Printable Days of the Week Magnet Clips


When I was a teacher, there were so many things that I wished I could get done at the beginning of the year. You always had time for the really important things – getting to know your students, organizing reading groups and unpacking necessary supplies.  But there was always the desire to do more of the “fun” […]

DIY Project: Chalkboard Paint Gift Tags


At the beginning of June I learned about a fun secret summer gift exchange on Craftaholics Anonymous. Crafters from all over the country were matched anonymously with each other. Kind of like a secret Santa for the craft obsessed. I thought it would be a lot of fun to get to know someone new and […]

Moss Covered Numbers for Spring Party Table


I’ve seen paper mache numbers and letters on many party tables.  Each always has a unique twist, that when it came to my own version of this project, I found it hard to choose a creative direction to go in.  From mod podged paper, wrapped ribbon, glitter, and cupcake liners, none of this project ideas captured […]

Tweet! Tweet! A DIY Spring Birdhouse for Your Dessert Table


I am so excited to be styling my first dessert table for my grandmother’s 90th surprise birthday party this week. I did say surprise, but since she doesn’t read blogs, I think it’s safe to talk about it. The theme I chose for the party is Birds and Blooms. To add some bird elements, I’ve been […]
