My friend just started a new blog and you have to check it out:
My Suite Bliss 

She has so many great tutorials and design ideas.

We did some vinyl lettering for her pantry - so cute!

Here's a peek at some of her other fun projects:

Cakes and Desserts - Rainbows and Racecars

My middle child's 3rd birthday is in two weeks, so I need to get planning!! He loves rainbows so I wanted to do the inside of his cake like this:

More frosting like above or less like this one?

But the theme of the party is race cars.
So I need to do the top something like this:

Love the simplicity of these two cakes:

Or I could do an open rainbow cake with a racecar on top:

 Or this theme was mixed beautifully here:

So many fun ideas - so little time - wish me luck :)
I can't wait to post all of our pictures from the party - I will keep you posted!

An Easy Lunch With Kids

This looks like such a fun idea to do with kids. It inspires creativity, and I guess it doesn't hurt that they taste good, too (:

What you need:

  • English muffins
  • Spaghetti sauce
  • Toppings (cheese, pepperoni, canadian bacon, pineapple, mushrooms, etc.)
Step One - Get everything set up. Split the muffins and put the toppings in separate bowls.

Step Two - Let the kids come in and put together their favorite kind of pizza.

Step Three - Place under the broiler for about 5-10 minutes. They should cook pretty quickly, so keep an eye on them.

Step Four - Try to remember whose pizza was whose and enjoy!

Vintage Decor

I love vintage looks for empty walls. This assortment of plates is the perfect accent!

Have any old suitcases? Stack them together for an adorable side table.

A pop of color always makes things a little warmer (:

Love the tiles around the fireplace!

And you can't really go wrong with the pinwheels (:

Wooden Staircase

I love wooden staircases - although probably not for me right now (with three little ones).  But they are so warm and welcoming!

This customer sent me a picture of her stairs - we custom cut numbers for each of her stairs -

Aren't the details of her home lovely!
