Now, brace yourselves. I know you're gonna love this one!

Imagine the hours of excitement at a party, playtime, play-dates, sleepovers or family-time as children build their "forts" shaped like pirate ships, castles, playhouses, submarines, airplanes, teepees, tunnels…I know my kids would go nuts over them! :)

My Fave Comfort Foods & a $100 Amazon Gift Card

This giveaway is now closed! With the cold weather here to stay, sometimes you just gotta reach for that plate of comfort food to keep moral in check. It feels good to indulge in a plate of something familiar that makes me feel fuzzy inside. And despite trying to keep my new year's resolutions, I have no problem taking a detour in winter. It's my go-to equivalent of wearing a really snugly woolly sweater. But involving melted cheese instead. Yes, some of my fave comfort foods include cheese. The melted kind. Like a good ol' mac and cheese. Or a lasagna. Or tuna melt. Are you the same?

How to Make a DIY Crepe or Tissue Paper Tassel Garland

For my Valentine's Day shoot , I wanted a giant balloon as my table backdrop. But the balloon cord looked naked and boring, so I decided to jazz it up with some tissue paper tassels . Tissue paper tassels are all the rage in the party world, and have been for a while now, but they are new to me in the sense that I only used them once before. And for this occasion, I didn't have time to order any nor buy tissue paper to make them myself. All I had was crepe paper left over from this shoot . So, what's a party gal to do? Yes, make do, of course! ;) I wasn't sure if was even gonna work...but guess what?! Crepe paper has hidden talents!! Full tutorial below.
