Spider Web Craft Paper Table Runner with Spider Confetti

Spider Web Craft Paper Table Runner with Spider Confetti

This is a sponsored post on behalf of Martha Stewart Crafts as always all opinions are my own. As I prepped my front room of the house for a fun-filled Halloween themed party room I knew I wanted to make the kids table more exciting than just a roll of craft paper on the table. That's when I remembered I received a really cool spider web and spider punch last year for the 12 Month's of Martha box. So I dragged the exersaucer to the front room, placed Ryder in it and I went to punching … [Read more...]

5 Tips to Host a Successful Halloween Party

5 Tips to Host a Successful Halloween Party

This is a sponsored post on behalf of Cost Plus World Market. As always all opinions are my own.  Hosting a Halloween party is a topic that we have quite a bit of experience doing. We've hosted some pretty crazy Halloween parties in the past.  I say crazy because of the decor and food not because of the drunken debauchery (that never happened). Ok, wait, maybe our first party when we were 23 and just had moved into our first place together. But that was it. Sadly, the past two years we … [Read more...]

DIY Scrabble Costume

DIY Scrabble Costume

Last year, we decided to share the gender of our baby on Halloween. After sharing our birth story earlier this year, we were going through a really rough time. We had no idea if the baby I was carrying was even going to be healthy. We had known for a few week's prior and had told only our immediate family. They kept their mouths sealed shut until we were ready to share the news with the world. Every year my former corporate job would decorate cubes and have a theme for Halloween. Last year, our … [Read more...]

How to Sew a Magician’s Cape

Magician's Cape

Learn how easy it is to sew a Magician's Cape in minutes! Back in March my mother in-law took my nephew to our local repertory theater to see a child's play. The play's main character was a magician. My five year old nephew, Nicholas, loved the play and all of a sudden wanted to be a magician. After the show they passed by the merchandise table and my mother in-law splurged and purchased a magician's hat for my Nicholas. He really wanted the cape but she just couldn't fathom spending a … [Read more...]

Crows-in-Waiting

Crows-in-Waiting

We made these crows-in-waiting back in 2012 after getting back from our Europe trip. I totally forgot to share these last year (I blame that on the severe pregnancy brain I was experiencing), and when I was going through my draft post a few weeks ago I realized I had this awesome Halloween project waiting in the wings for the world to see! When I first saw the Ravens-in-Waiting project in the Halloween edition of Martha Stewart I knew I needed to make the project. However, using paper packing … [Read more...]

Fresh 48 Newborn Photography

Warning: This is a photo heavy post of pure newborn newness. So if you love babies, newborns to be exact you'll want to keep reading, and if you don't--well what's wrong with you? Only kidding. Not everyone loves kids. We get that.  I've been wanting to share our Fresh 48 Newborn photos with you guys for the past month now, and time has gotten the best of me. I'm working on this post at 3am, because someone is wide awake and well I am too, so why not utilize time to the fullest and work on … [Read more...]

Easy Sticker Easter Eggs + Egg Holder

Easy Sticker Easter Eggs #12MonthsOfMartha

This is a sponsored post on behalf of Martha Stewart Crafts. I can't believe Easter is this weekend. It totally snuck up on us, but I guess that's partly because of the new little human being that is ruling our lives right now. It's Ryder's first Easter and although he has no clue about Easter and dyeing eggs and the massive amounts of candy that are dished out in cute Easter baskets, we still felt the need to decorate Easter eggs. But let's get real--when your living on 2-3 hours of … [Read more...]
