Yummy Yummy

This yummy ice cream "sandwitch" is from Martha Stewart's Halloween collection. After a night full of Halloween parties, trick or treating and pictures these ice cream "sandwitches" will be a perfect end of the night treat for mommy and daddy. Along with a nice bottle of wine of course.

So, the Martha way to make these yummy ice cream "sandwitches" is to make homemade chocolate cookies and cones but the Julie way is just to buy chocolate cookies and cones. Madison is going to have three costume changes though out the day so I prefer the no fuse method.

A nice dessert wine to pair this with would be Conte d' Alba's Stella Rosa. Than again I pair Stella Rosa with everything. I have a major sweet tooth and it doesn't get much sweeter then Stella Rosa.

Candy Corn Party Circles

I love this Halloween collection! I designed these party circles for a Halloween party my daughter Madison and I will be attending.  We will be taking cupcakes and goodie bags and these party circles will be the perfect way to accessorize. I haven't decided what kind of cupcakes I will be making yet but I'm thinking some type of pumpkin cupcake. As for the goodie bags, all of Madison's friends are under a year old so candy is out of the question. Instead, the goodie bags will be filled with cheerios and baby mum mums.

Etsy Shop

So I have decided to start selling my designs on Esty. I put so much time and care into designing party supplies for my family and friend that I thought it would be nice to share with others. How it will work is really simple. Just purchace the PDF file, print and let your creativity run wild. The design can be printed as many times as needed and there are no shipping cost! I will put a link in the side bar to the Esty shop. Happy Planning!

A Pretend Halloween

          I'm in the Halloween spirt! I know it's not even October, but I am so excited for the holidays! I love absolutely everything that the holiday season has to offer; baking, shopping, crowed malls, family, hot coco, sweaters, dressing up, decorating, crazing family members...I love it all.

         So in the efforts to jump start the holiday season, Madison and I pretended today was Halloween. I dressed her up as Mini Mouse and made vanilla cupcakes and accessorized them with vintage Halloween toppers. Needless to say when my husband got home he was a little confused, our daughter was wearing Mini Mouse ears and there were Halloween cupcakes on the table, I am pretty sure he thinks I am crazy!

Ooh La La... it's the first post!

Since the birth of my beautiful daughter Madison and becoming a stay at home mom I have discovered my passion for all things crafty. Whether it's crafting invitations, decoration, girly accessories, gift wrapping, sewing, holiday decor, party planning, etc I just can't seem to get enough and I thought it would be fun to share my ideas and projects on a blog. I hope you enjoy and get inspired to start a project of your own!
