Family Pictures

If has been years since me, my sister and my mom have had any pictures taken together so while she was visiting from Colorado she wanted us to get some made.  Saturday after Jillian's party we all went to the Target portrait studio to get some made.  I think for having a worn out little girl they turned out pretty good!

Carnival 4th Birthday Party

Yesterday was the big day, it was Jillian's 4th Birthday Carnival! 

We all had a blast and I would call it a success!  I wanted to share with you some of the photos and I plan on sharing a tutorial for the cupcakes soon!

The party invitaions were made by GwynnWassonDesigns and the printables (cupcake wrappers, birthday banner) were designed by TypeWink, both on etsy.

I've seen a lot of my favorite bloggers post year end reviews that share their top projects/posts from 2011 and I thought I would join in!  Below are my top 5 most viewed posts from 2011.

1.  My post viewed post in 2011 was my Mini Monkey Bread recipe.  I can thank Pillsbury for most of these page views, they posted my recipe on their facebook page and I got over 10,000 visitors! 

2. Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss!  Jillian and I made a cute One Fish, Two Fish. Red Fish, Blue Fish snack for her to take to school to celebrate Read Across America week!

Thanks to everyone that visited my blog in 2011 and a special thanks to everyone that left me comments and feedback, I LOVE hearing from you! 

Hopefully 2012 will be a great blog year and I will get to share even more tutorials and recipes with you!

I'm still here.... I PROMISE!

Life has been CRAZY!  Since my last post I received TONS of wreath orders.  I was so slammed with making wreaths I didn't have much time for anything else. Then the first part of November I had about 10 orders for Thanksgiving shirts so I was busy with those. It was a blessing I got the orders, the money I made payed for all of our spending money at Disney!!!

The week before Thanksgiving Michael and I surprised Jillian with a trip to Disney World!  We all had a BLAST and we are already planning our next trip!  I joked with our travel agent that we have turned into "Disney people" and she said we must have drank the water!  Soon I'll share with you some of the cute outfits I made and ordered for Jillian to wear on the trip.

When we got back it I was in full Christmas mode and had a bunch of shirt orders and shopping to do. 

Two days after Christmas was Jillian's 4th Birthday!  I took the afternoon off work and Michael and I took her and her best friend Emma to a movie and out for frozen yogurt!  Tomorrow is the big party day and I can't wait to share the details with you.  I planned a CARNIVAL!  We have games, booths, cotton candy machine, popcorn..... the works!  My mom will be in town for a few days but after she leaves hopefully I'll have a little more time to blog and share the party details with you. 

I hope to spend a little more time over here in my little section of the www to share my recipes, crafts and random stuff with you all.  See ya soon!

This weekend I took a break from wreath making and worked on a shirt for Jillian.  I got this outfit at Walmart for only $10 and knew it would be perfect to add something to.

What do you think?

Jillian loves the outfit and had to wear it to school today!

Wreaths, Wreaths and More Wreaths pt.2

I've been a very busy bee working on wreaths.  I've cut myself with thread from the fabric and burned just about every finger with hot glue but I am having so much fun making all these different wreaths!

Check out my house divided wreaths.
