Back To School Party

Back to School Time!
Tonight was our last day of Summer, so it meant a get together for my daughter and her friends!
It was fast and easy (thanks to Pinterest!)
The banner was brown paper bags with chalk and I found some free printables for cake banner and pencils, keep reading for link….


free printable  found HERE…Thank you Celebration Shoppe!!!
For the table, I used their school colors, blue and gold.  I used my Silhouette machine to make monograms, speaking of monograms, I made them all monograms for their computers and folders!
If you are interested, please email me for info and price
this is a classic, easy and inexpensive, Dollar Store vase and pencils, I used a rubber band  to keep in place and tied a bow around rubber band (this way we can use pencils after party!)

Here is a list of tips for Back to school, I laminated these and sent them home with their monograms
The Back to school cake doubled as a Birthday Cake…Happy Birthday Laura!

Happy Back to School Everyone!

Team Gifts: Hair Ties and Monogramed Phone Chargers

This is a big weekend for us, My Daughter is Playing in the  Junior Olympics for Water Polo!
We are very proud and wanted to make an inexpensive gift for all the girls.
we came up with Hair Ties and Phone charger Monograms
The hair ties are super easy and inexpensive especially with a Joanne's coupon! We bought the fold over elastic in water polo/volleyball print! and a solid color one that matches the team colors
 cut your fold over elastic to 9" long (sized after trial and error and you will get 4 ties per yard!)
 fold in half and tie the ends together in a loose knot, tightening as you pull the knot to the ends
we packaged them in little bags after using a piece of card stock  (the card stock is cut 3" x 3")

We made a tiny monogram for each player using a  Silhouette Machine and vinyl for the girls phone chargers.
Go Riptides!!!

Minted Wedding Invitations

It's Wedding Season and I want to share with you some of the most beautiful Wedding Invitations from...

I am so inspired by all their designs, I could plan an entire wedding around all of their invitations. I fell in love with their offerings of  floral, beach, traditional, elegant, monogramed, letterpress and unique designs. There are so many options  that include photos, or beautifully coordinated typographic fonts, you can find it all.   I found too many choices that I love!!!

Here are a few of my favorite:
floral with beautiful Gold details…xoxo

I love the Nautical clean lines...



mini albums!
love the die cut designs


mini albums…great for destination weddings!

rustic….country style….xoxo

don't you picture an ombre cake???
  so much more…


Bt the way…I forgot to mention...  You can choose the shape of the card, as in die-cuts.  And you can order matching/coordinating Thank You notes, RSVP cards,menu cards, table numbers... the works!  It all matches!  


Also, check this out:
they offer party details to match many of the designs

Great Birthday Idea for your Husband, Father or Boyfriend….The Dollar Shave Club

Are you looking for a great Birthday idea for your Husband (Father, Boyfriend or friend)?
We all know how difficult it is to find something creative and useful. The Dollar Shave Club is a Great gift Idea….


I am always looking for a creative and fun idea for my husband. This is a perfect answer! Everyone loves to feel beautiful, pampered, AND SMOOTH, this gift keeps giving all year long!
The program is easy and fun!
You CHOOSE the razor $1.00, $6.00, $9.00 per month (it includes the razor, and the razor is amazing…true and tested!!!!)
We received the $6.00 a month razor…. and it is a great razor!
It comes with a razor handle on the first shipment and every month you receive 4 new sharp blades with  FREE SHIPPING!
Hold on… there's more things they offer…Add- On's!!!
that's right… great products, too
Shave Butter (shave cream, that is really nice because he loves that it is unscented)

Post Shave (after shave cream)he  LOVES it! Once again unscented and calming…he has been using it every shave!

Dr. Carver's Repair Serum:  another fantastic product, my husband is loving all the products…he feels so pampered!


My Husband's favorite... 

Just like the name says…he loves these!!!! He has already made a request to Re-order!!!
Hair products too… we can't help you on this one….but great packaging, smells great and great prices, too...


My husband really, really, honestly, LOVED these razors. He said they were the best he’s ever used(We got the $6 package). I agree with him,  his head and face is super smooth!

 No fees. No commitment. Cancel anytime. You can also change the frequency of delivery. Don’t want it every month? Get them every other month! It’s a really simple system and I love this.

BTW, the packaging is awesome and it really is a treat to receive sharp new razors every month and so much cheaper!

Happy Birthday Mike, and Happy Shaving!
