treasure hunt ideas, saint patricks day ideas

Wake up sleepyhead

You've been sleeping all day!

I came over to trick you and tease you today!

I knocked on the door but 

You just slept right through it

Now I dare you to catch me 

But I bet you can't do it!

Make this St. Patt'ys Day the most magical St. Patty's day ever with this super fun, super clever "Leprechaun Hunt"! The morning starts when each child finds the above note from Liam the Leprechaun on their pillow--they then follow ten clues chasing Liam all over the house and trying to catch him! This was inspired by my granddaughter who leaves Leprechaun traps every St. Patty's Day to try to catch a leprechaun.  Why should she have all the fun--every kid should get to try to catch a leprechaun (and be teased by said leprechaun all along the way!).  To download this amazing "leprechaun hunt", all you have to do is CLICK HERE

Homemade Gift Idea "Teacher's Rule"

An easy teacher gift to show your teacher appreciation!

No body wants to be a teacher's pet, but we all like to show our teachers appreciation for all of the hard work and effort that they put into making our classroom experience beneficial and fun!  With the start of the school year here, it's a great time to give your teacher a little something at the very outset to let them know just how much you appreciate them and support them in their hard work!  These cookie pockets are a free download that you simply print and cut out.  Then all you have to do is stuff the pocket with a yummy cookie and send it to school with your child--their teacher will love getting this sweet surprise in the beginning of the school year and will be reminded of why they chose to be a teacher!  We have personlized downloads so that your pocket can have either a girl or a boy in the graphic just so that you can make it gender specific, and if you want to make it extra special you can even find out what your teacher's favorite kind of cookie is and surprise them with that! Don't wait until the end of the year to do something special for your teachers--show them now and give the a little extra excitement to make it through the year.

Party Ideas: pink Poodle


Party Ideas


With so many daughters and granddaughters pink is a very popular color in our house!  I designed this fun little pink poodle party for my little granddaughter who just turned three and she absolutely loved it!  I made poodle skirts for each of my granddaughters (I chose to do them in a Chevron pattern which turned out really cute--I was worried that the Chevron might look funny since the zigzags would bend funny when sewn into a skirt, but they turned out to be adorable!) and the girls had a ball just spinning round and round in their skirts and seeing how big they could get their skirt to flare out! I found strands of pearls at Walmart in the fabric section that were sewn together (so I wouldn't have to worry about beads flying everying if the pearl strands broke) and they were perfect to give the poodles on the poodle skirts little pearl collars and to make the handles of the goody bags as well.  I set up a dainty little tea party with kid friendly treats (cute plates with a popcorn cup, a fruit snack cup, etc...) and they were a big hit!  The kids ate and boogied out to some fun music we had playing in the background and everyone had a good time.  If you want to throw a Pink Poodle party, then I have everything already done for you! You can download bottle labels, candy bar wrappers, cookie pockets, gift bags, purses, candy cups, a party banner, good bags, cupcake liners, cupcake tags, candy pouches, silverware holders, poodle skirt patterns and MORE just by visitng my website!  All of these downloads are free (except for the poodle skirt pattern), so all you have to do is print it off, cut it out, put it together, and your Pink Poodle party is ready to go!

Mother's Day Poem "Lullaby"



Lullaby, rockabye, you sang me to sleep

And crept out of my room without making a peep

Lullaby rockabye you held me so close

When I scraped up my knee or bumped my nose

Lullaby, rockabye, you held my hand

And carried me on when I couldn’t stand

Lullaby, rockabye you wiped my tears

And helped me get over my biggest fears

Thank you for teaching me in all that you do

When I grow up I want to be just like you

Diaper Baby Carriage

My daughter Ana is having a baby in a month and all of her sisters threw her a very cute baby shower. 

Of course I still had to get in on the action and the shower was at my house. 
I told my daughter Megan that I wanted her to create a diaper carriage.  
Our theme was baby girls. 
 Diaper cakes are very popular right now and  I wanted something a little bit different. 
Megan is amazing and made this adorable diaper baby carriage out of disposable diapers, 
receiving blankets, bottles and baby wash cloth.  
All usable items for the new mother-to-be.
Megan made huge snicker-doodle cookies for a party favor take home and we housed 
them in the carriage. It was a fun centerpiece, gift and handout.
The instructions on making this 
diaper baby carriage is free and you can download it HERE.
