Monsters Inc Birthday Party

I had started planning a beach themed party for my daughter's birthday party but all of a sudden she started loving Monsters Inc. I knew I had to do that theme. So, I scrapped my beach idea and dived head first into planning a  Inc party. 

Can I just start off by saying there are NO Monsters Inc decorations?? Sometimes, you can get lucky and find Monsters University items but Vivienne is not into that movie as much. So, I had to make most of the decorations myself. 

I started off by making a few stand up props out of cardboard. Boo's door was super easy to paint. 


Mike was a little harder but I really wanted to make him because he is Vivie's favorite. 

I had lots of fun making these scream canisters from Pringles containers. I used yellow card stock for the outside. All the details were added on using colored electrical tape and they were very easy to make. I made 4 in about 15 minutes. So easy and super cute! 



I made so many Mike eyes, I swear I dreamt about them. I attached them to lime green buckets to put snacks in on the tables. 


They were fun to make crazy faces with too! Haha


For Sulley's tables, I found teal bowls and taped purple dots on them. A circle punch was a huge time saver! 



Next, I made some banners. Pretty easy just blue and green cardstock with the eyes and purple dots glued on. 


The cake was fun but time consuming! I used a Wilton #233 tip to pipe blue "fur" all around the outside of the cake. Start at the bottom and work your way up. 


To save time, I just used premade frosting. I spotted this awesome blue frosting at Target. 

Then, I had to go back around and add in some purple spots and using a Wilton #12 tip, piped dots around the outside. 



I had the Mike figure already and found the perfect candle for $1 at a local store. I found the doors on a shop on Etsy and printed them out on cardstock. I used yarn attached to two skewers and taped them on. 

Vivienne loved it! 


The cupcakes came out cute too! 


The purple frosting came with the perfect colored sprinkles. We just picked the black ones out because they didn't match. 




I finished up the cutest little dress for her the night before. 


I love these little buckets. I buy them from Target for every party to put the forks, knives and spoons in. I found these buckets a few weeks back. As soon as I saw the teal and green stripes, I knew they would be perfect. I printed out pics of the characters and taped them on. 


I found these balloons at the local grocery store totally by chance!


Finally, it was party day! Wish I had gotten better pics of it all together but I always forget. 







Vivienne loved it all. She hoarded all the Mike  items. Haha





It was such a fun day and one of my favorites to put together!

Ladybug On A Pug Review and Giveaway

I was very excited to receive this set of 6 travel wipes from Jamie over at Ladybug on a Pug.


They are just gorgeous and oh so soft! These are now my go to wipes. I'm very sad when I've used the last one.



The front with the print, is flannel and the back is super soft sherpa. These also make a great wipe for runny noses and drooly faces...especially for those of us dealing with teething toddlers. 

I absolutely adore her fabric choices! They are all fun and the colors pop! During a change, I like to hand my daughter one if these wipes to keep her entertained while I do the dirty work. She loves to look at them and points out everything she sees on them. Thank you Jamie! Diaper change time is no longer a losing battle on my end! ;)


Jamie also makes standard size wipe in more fun colors and designs!

We love these wipes. They're very durable, we've had no staining, no fading and super soft!

Now here's the best part! You can win a set of these lovely travel wipes too! The winner will get a choice between a girly, boyish or gender neutral pack of wipes.

Masterpieces of Fun Art review and Giveaway

I love, love, love the items in Masterpieces of Fun Art's shop! I was thrilled to be able to do a review and giveaway of Simone's awesome products! She sent me these 4 super cute hair clips to try out.



My girls went nuts for them! They immediately went in their hair.



 Unfortunately, I have a very active toddler who won't stay still for pictures. This was the best shot I could get of her. Though, I was not allowed to take her "pretty" out. She loved them!

They all included a non-slip grip. Worked perfect in both girls hair. I have a hard time finding clips that will stay in my little one's hair. It's just starting to really come in now. I had no problem with the clip falling out of her hair. Well until she yanked it out that is ;)

Simone has so many unbelievably cute items in her shop. Believe me when I say that it was very hard to pick just a few to post on here. Here are a few of my favorites.

how cute are these for Easter??

Love these carnation clips!


She makes stylish chunky necklaces now too!



Aren't those the cutest???

Simone is also so gracious to offer up another set of hair clips to one of my readers! One lucky reader will win this Owl, Cupcake, Bird Hair Clip Sampler!


But that's not all! She is also offering my readers a coupon code  to get free shipping on any order of $10 or more! please enter CRAFTYMOM10 at checkout.


Contest is open to Worldwide.
