Celebrating a Bee-lated Birthday!

My oldest daughter turned 25(!) years old a couple of weeks ago and we were finally able to celebrate this past weekend.  I thought I would share a few pictures.  



When my children (and sometimes their friends) have a milestone birthday, I like to make a special cake that shows off individual characteristics that make them special.  


My daughter wants to be a beekeeper "when she grows up".  This tied in nicely with a belated birthday- hence the "Bee-lated Birthday" theme.


My daughter is a Disney fan and "Beauty and the Beast" is her favorite Disney movie.  Of course, the new version is coming out soon.  She also loves tea, so Mrs. Potts and Chip were perfect for the occasion. 


My daughter has played Pokemon since she was a very young girl.  "Pokemon Go" brought out a new "Festive Pikachu" the week before the party. 


She attends UNCG Grad School and of course, a red rose is appropriate for any woman for any occasion.  It also goes with "Beauty and the Beast". 


Who doesn't love (and miss!) Princess Leia?


I found this cute "candelabra" at Target.  I will probably get a lot of use out of it! 

Of course, I had to break out the Cricut and make a sign. 





Come back next week for more information about the party favors. 



I hope you enjoyed this little peek at our celebration! 


Thanks for stopping by today!

Happy Halloween Tablescape

I love polka-dots.  They make me happy. So does Halloween, beautiful fall weather and the fact that my oldest daughter is visiting.  With that in mind, I decided to enjoy a happy little Halloween dinner on the deck. It has been a long time since I posted a table scape and I want to share this simple little happy table.  



A couple of weeks ago, I grabbed up the remaining yardage of this polka dot fabric from Walmart, of all places.  I wish I had bought more when it first came out.  It is perfect for a Halloween tablecloth, quilting or a number of other projects I can think of.  



This candelabra came from Target. I had a difficult time finding Halloween taper candles, finally stumbling upon them at Michaels (for 50% off!).  Again, I should have shopped in August, there were more options available then, but I really like the orange with black stripes. (Somebody remind me next year!) I made the witch hat last year (you can see that on my Halloween Eve post here.) There was quite a breeze on…

Bee-Lated Again! (And a Free-Bee!)

You may remember that I promised to tell you about the party favors from my daughter's "Bee-lated Birthday". Not only was I late with her birthday party, but I am late with the promised post as well!  With the bee theme that we had for the party, and my new found fascination with making my own bath soap and sugar scrubs, I decided to make little bee-themed soaps as a party favor.  



I have shared with you a couple of times how easy it is to make your own "designer" soaps. For these, I got a bee soap mold, some goat's milk soap base and my new favorite Honey Almond soap scent.  I purchased all of these from Micheal's (don't forget your coupon!), but I am intrigued by some molds that I found on Amazon.  Be sure to shop around and find what makes you happy. 


They are simple to make- melt one pound of the soap base in the microwave according to package directions (30 seconds, stir: 30 seconds, stir, etc. until completely melted).  Add your favorite scent, …

Valentine's Wreath

I am really enjoying my role as a member of the Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog design team!  It is really challenging me to find new ways to explore my Cricut and more importantly, to find time to relax and craft! 
This week we are challenged to create a project about Valentine's Day.  This Weeks Sponsor: D.L. ART- www.dianamlarson.com
A Valentine Bundle! To qualify for the prize, be sure to use at least 1 Cricut cut on your project and if it's not obvious, let us know what cartridge you used. If you use a Cricut Explore machine, at least one cut must be from the Cricut catalog of images.

If it isn't a card, you will get two entries into the drawing!

I got this idea about a month ago.  I might have changed my mind if I had truly considered how much time would go into it! 

I started with a green foam wreath from Michaels which I painted pink. I then started making paper roses using the Flower Shoppe Cartridge.  



At first I used the Recollections Pink Buttons Paper Collection, fo…
