I just LOVE how this party turned out! I made the stickers for the candy jars, birthday banner, cupcake toppers, and hang tags. Isn't it the coolest thing to see a cake made around your design!! Everything turned out beautiful!!


Okay so what do you think about do-it-yourself party products?? I am thinking that I will make the products, print and ship. Then you get to put it all together, I will send instructions on what you need to do and a supply list and then you run with it!!



Okay, so anyway....if you read the post before this one you will see that things are really not that great, kids in new schools (which is a positive, great schools & the boys LOVE it), unpacking which is the worse of the whole packing process, becoming a single mother and trying to hold it all together for the sake of the boys and my business. It's hard, very, very hard....so I have thought about it and decided that I am going to start doing mostly printable party packages. I think it will be easier because I will have less of the work load and more time to do what I truly love and that is to design.....on the good side all you moms can actually make your kids party things! It's so much fun to do but when you have 50 party's going on it takes the fun out of it and toooooo much stress! Less stress is what I need for right now:(

I will make pretty much everything printable, cupcake toppers, hang tags, banners, stickers, door signs....I will still take on custom work for party's that need certain color schemes but I will make them printable as well. I will see how this works and go from there.


I finally got to where I was going, it was a complete nightmare! First off, my BIL told me that the uhaul trailer would fishtail if I went any faster than 55....WRONG! Try more like 45 and for the first half of the trip it rained like crazy, then it did clear up but like I said I couldn't go faster than 45mph. Not to mention I had to fill up 3 times at $65 each time. It is usually an eight hour drive (which is bad enough) but it took me 16 HOURS!!! Then I got to the house and it is sooooooooo small that all my things are everywhere, I have tons of orders and I can't find anything! I just want to crawl in a hole and cry....cry for hours and hours:(


My boys and I are moving, it's not really all that great due to the fact that my husband is staying behind. He has quite a few problems he needs to fix before he can be with his family again. So please keep us in your prayers.....pray that I will have the strength to get through this, that my boys will adjust and that we make it there safely. I am very scared of what is to come but also relieved that we may find some peace. I will not be on the computer much for the rest of the week so please just bare with me and I will get back with you as soon as I can.

Thank you all for your business, I have met so many wonderful mothers and I pray that I can continue to do so:)
Charlotte turned three and her mother did a great job decorating...don't you think?
I made the banner in fun yummy colors with all different patterns and bright letters!!

The cupcake toppers are from the Candy Bar Collection in my shop along with the Candy Bar Banner and matching Door Sign that she had used for the Candy Buffett Sign!!

Well, I haven't been here in awhile....it seems like forever! I have been so busy that time seriously slips away. I feel like it is slipping away from me watching my children grow....my house staying clean, peace of mind, friends, family, or even me getting to leave the house to go a school function. When I go to sleep (if I do) I don't wake up and enjoy my coffee and watch the morning news......it's OMG...I need to get to work, get the kids on the bus and I have 1,2,3,4,5 hours till I can get to the post office! It's crazy!! I am also in the process of moving back to Texas, so relocating 8 hours is going to be less than fun with all the boys and all of our things!!

We need prayers that we get there safely and that we will get some peace:)

I also wanted to write a little note about a book I am reading, it's call 23 MINUTES IN HELL, it's about a man that God actually sent to hell to show him what it was like so he could help tell everyone about his horrific & gruesome experience. It's a wonderful book, I started it yesterday and it's really hard to put down. For believers and non-believers it's a book that needs to be read. Hell is real and a place where you DO NOT want to spend eternity!!!

On another note...I have reached over 1000 people to have me as their favorites on etsy, I felt pretty excited about that!

I am fixing to update my schedule and I have some really AMAZING pictures to show off!!

I'll try to start getting everything back on track so just bare with me:)
