Chocolate Spa Party

Sorry for the lack of posts. I've been busy catching up on orders from the crazy, but fun weekend. Friday, I was invited to a Copic Marker class... which was awesome. I finally got to meet Janna who was on our design team last season. I also got to meet & sit next to the talented Margie, of the Girls Paperie. I learned so much about how to use those markers, and now I want a whole set. Thanks for inviting me Janna.

Later, my friend and I threw a Chocolate themed Spa party for our friend's birthday. We had 15 girls join us for Chocolate, games, and a foot soak. (Pictures of party shown above.)

(This is my first time using this Linky Tool, so I hope it works.) Post a link to your blog with a picture of your fireplace mantel below.

Elegant Chalkboard Wall Decal

I just hung this chalkboard decal up last week, and so far it's been useful & fun. It works just like a regular chalkboard. I've used it for posting menus, caramel apple prices for my boutique on Friday, messages to my husband, and memos for myself.

Inexpensive DIY Halloween Decor

Update: The pattern Download is now available Here on my new blog.

These felt bats are super easy to make, and a very inexpensive way to decorate for Halloween.
1) Download my PDF bat pattern. (Found on my new blog.)
2) Cut out pattern and trace bats onto black stiff felt, or black card-stock.
3) Cut bats from felt or card-stock.
4) hang from mantel, ceiling, stair railings, & etc.

Above, I used masking tape to tape the bats to my front door. On these bats, I folded them towards the center to make them look like they are flying.

Fingernail polish for kids

My kids have been really into painting their finger & toe-nails this summer. I just found this "kid-safe" fingernail polish called hopscotch kids. They have cute colors, and the names of the colors are adorable for kids.

All Moved In

We are finally all moved into our house we've been building. We bought our lot 4 years ago, so it's nice to finally have some stability in our lives. Here are some pictures of my youngest daughters' bedroom.
I got most of the mirrors & frames at garage sales, then painted them bright colors.

I covered the candles on the chandelier with fabric.
This little rocking chair was mine when I was little. I re-painted it Ivy Moss.
