Late last year, I was invited to take part in a fun craft challenge for All You Magazine. It'd been a while since I touched needle and thread, but it's like riding a bike it seems. You never forget it! ;)
This was a really a fun project and was really nice to get back to my sewing roots.
Only a few hours left to vote, so pretty please stop by their Facebook page and vote for the Penguin? You'll know what I mean when you see it ;)

Paris is just one of those cities that inspires and captures one's imagination. And what better way to spark those creative light bulbs while in 'the city of light', than by attending the Marie Claire Craft Show?!! :)

I love working on editorials for printed press. There's nothing like seeing one's work in print. I think the smell of the pages also has a part to play in it. Yes, I unashamedly 'sniff' my work! :D
Anyways, you can imagine my delight when the editors of Rio Grande and Red River Family Magazine got in touch for another collaborative work for their July issue. We had worked together before, but this time they were going to feature three of our parties! Woo-Hoo!
Both mag are printed and also available for you to read online. Check out all the details below:

Hi sweet friends! Did you have a relaxing weekend, reading the latest issue of Bird's Party Magazine?! ;)
After all the excitement of the mag last week, you'd think I'd take it easy now the issue was out? Well, no sir! Already working on the next one (plus a dozen other projects) and excited (and slightly in shock) that next issue has all nearly been assigned!
It's a good sign though, and I am beyond ecstatic to be working with such a fabulous team again! ♥

The last of our three Kids' Holiday Tables was inspired by cute penguins, so naturally the color scheme was black and white, with splashes of bright yellow to warm things up!
I wanted to create a more sophisticated and modern looking table, whilst keeping the styling fun for the kids - A good balance for those who love to entertain in style, even for little guests! ;)

Following on from our first styled table yesterday, this is our Crafty Snowman Kid's Holiday Table. Check out all the crafty and DIY details below + how to get your hands on some FREE party printables! ;)

Holiday is a time to get the family around and enjoy the company of our loved ones. At some point during the Holiday season, you're bound to sit down for a meal and find little kids among you.
So, how to keep them entertained and amused during the meal without breaking a sweat? And no, your fabulous carving skills may not do the trick here...
The answer is to create a special table just for them! Check out the first of three Kids' Holiday Table ideas I styled for the winter issue of 'Yum Food and Fun for Kids' magazine - inspired by candy off course! ;)
