Farm Birthday Party

For my littlest Troublemakers birthday we had a Farm theme party. This guy loves animals. He sleeps with 2 plastic ones (a giraffe and zebra) so it seemed fitting. His favorite song was Old MacDonald. So Old McJoseph had a farm!

Dog and Pig Nose chocolate

Chicken Cake Pops

Pudding and Oreo dirt with a gummy worm

Rabbit food

We had lots of goodies!

Birthday Shirt

My Munchkin (or littlest Troublemaker) turned 2 this year and we did a Farm themed party. I try to have a special T shirt for them ON their birthday so to go with the theme I used my Silhouette and Heat Transfer Vinyl to make a sheep :)

 It quite a few chuckles at school. He just loved picking at the eyeballs!

Guest Bathroom

I have been slowly personalizing my house (we moved in almost 2 years ago).  The whole house was the same exact beige flat paint.  The color was nice and neutral but it was ALL flat. Bathrooms are flat paint. Kitchen is flat paint. Pantry is flat paint. Hallways are flat paint. Bedrooms...yup you guessed it...flat paint.  So my first task was the tackle the places with the most traffic and the most dirt.  The boys bathroom was first. Next was the guest bathroom. It was the boring beige and in a room with no windows or natural light it was just dingy! I saw an idea for stripes and thought it looked divine! My idea was to make it into a beachy paradise. Brighten it up a bit. 
My beige bathroom

So as with all projects I started with paint.   I painted the entire bathroom a bright white. That alone made SUCH a difference.  Next up stipes. 
See, much better....
I fell in love with a bright aqua. With the help of my very patient geek we marked lines and taped using a laser level. Three stripes later and I LOVED it. 

I know I know, you are thinking, "Hey, I thought she said this room had no windows?!?"  And you'd be correct! BUT, I said to myself, "Self, that is no excuse!" A quick Amazon search and I found this great window to the beach.  A lil glue and some patience (again with my Geek's help) we had our very own beach view. My plan is to put up a valance and curtains to frame the window and give it a bit more Oomph. 

Just a lil taste of the room....

Candy Molds How I love thee

So as I mentioned in the earlier post I bought a blank candy mold for my sister's party.

She is a Red Hot Chilli Pepper fan and her recent 30th party was RHCP themed. I knew I could make something...and it turns out we made a few things...I will post them here....

First I printed out a basic RHCP symbol on computer paper.

I put a piece of wax paper on top and then using red melts in a squeeze bottle I drew the symbols.  I just made a billion of them.

I let them dry and then they just peeled off the wax paper.

Next step, I got my blank candy mold. I tried this a few ways and found that filling the candy mold with the white chocolate and then carefully placing the shape on the Back worked the best. The red chocolate would melt a bit and blend in with the white and it left a perfect shape.  Let that dry and then we had perfect RHCP candy.
