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:)
Here fishy..fishy!
This was a custom job I did for a little boy named Calin, I love the colors and how they turned out:)

I am so thankful for all my customers, I have met some really wonderful mothers, expecting mommy's, brides and so on. I have had over 350 sales in the past 3 months and it's finally catching up with me. I have had my run in's with sick kids but still kept pushing on but now I am so run down. I live on 2 to 3 hours a sleep and I am just whipped.
So why am I saying all this?
I am no longer going to be taking on anymore custom work. I will have 10 collections of each gender (boy & girl) I will also have tutu's, personalized matching shirts, a birthday party hat for birthday girl or boy only & beanie hats w/your choice of flower or hairbow in coordinating colors to match all the girl collections along with the shirts matching the boys. I also have my best friend that makes coordinating bibs to match for boy or girl in my collections as well.
I will also do my baby shower & bridal shower parties with the products already in my shop. Colors can be changed but no longer can I do specific graphics other than what I already have for sale.
That is all I am going to be doing....which is still alot of options. I just can't do other custom work. I appreciate all of you and thank you for all the business!!
Below are the lists of the collections that I will have available.
1. Orange/Hot Pink Polka Dots

I had a FABULOUS party designer ask me to help out with some decorations for this awesome party! Laura from Sweet Soiree designed this gorgeous party for that sweet little girl in the picture and I got to help out with the sign in the upper right hand picture along with some label tags as pictured with the Chocolate Almonds. Laura was featured in The Party Dress blog so I thought I would share it TOO!! I hope we get to work on many more parties together. If you are in need of a party coordinator then here you go!!

Okay.....This is TOO funny!

My 8 year old was outside playing and this friendly little bird decided he wanted to make friends with him. I swear everytime we moved the bird and put him in a tree he flew right back to Garrison's head!! He stayed there for hours as Garrison continued to play and the bird never moved....it was like he was velcro'd to his head. LOL! It was one of those things that you just had to be there because I am cracking up just writing this.

Poor Garrison.....he better stay far away from all the cat lovers!!!

I was just browsing through the blogworld and stumbled upon this one....Hissyfits Photography Blogspot and was like......WAIT A MINUTE! Those are my cupcake toppers! The ones that look like acutal lollipops and got kinda excited so I wanted to post the picture. Fabulous party! I wish I was her daughter....LOL


I am so excited about my new blog! Here you will find all my custom work along with updates, my current schedule and HAPPY CUSTOMERS!

I have to say that I am so fortunate, I really didn't think that I would have so much success in such a short period of time. I opened my first store with etsy just a few months ago and got SUPER LUCKY that Hostess With The Mostess found me and featured my products on their blog. WOW! I just couldn't believe it! That really helped my business, I went from doing okay to being so swamped that I wish I had three of me!
So I decided to open a store just for my party accessories and I am almost booked through August and have orders coming in for September through November!!
I am so truly blessed, I am doing what I love and still get to stay at home with my boys:)


All I can say is Thank you Lord for giving me the talent & customers. I am so thankful!!

SO come on over to sevencupcakes and check me out! I do everything from birthday parties to weddings (and everything in between)

ONE MORE THING!! I have to high five my awesome designer Kelly from fabulousk for my gorgeous blog design & matching banner for my store. She rocks!! Hugs Kel!!
