While looking in the basement I come across this old black Trunk.  It has my husbands old Music papers from collage.  Ask him if I can have it??  Sure he says!!
But he didn't know what I was going to do with it!

A little white wash, music sheet paper, lace & bling ~ he didn't even recognize it!!
Now I am on the hunt for more!!

July 1st Summer Treat

I had a ton of furniture to paint, but with chance of thunderstorms, I didn't want to take a chance.  So its Sunday evening, kids are watching a movie, didner is done, I'm board!!
So I play on Pinterest, my new fav site...
I find this yummieness!!
Here is the link for the recipe
I do not have mini muffin pans, so I made big guys!  Same directions, but only got 6 standard sized yummies.
After making the graham crusts, take them out & put the chocolate in the bottom & top with a full marshmellow.
Back in the oven like 2 mins, take out & press the softened marshmellow down. 

Melt the chocolate & put a spoon full on top... or 2 spoon fulls....

We ate them all..... now the kids, shown below enjoying thier 8:00 sweet snack... at bed time..... are running around like nuts in the house.....
Warning, feed to young children earlier in the day!!

She looks harmless here, doesn't she!?!? 
Happy July 1st!!!  Summer rock on!!

I just luv to plan the kids Birthday Parties!!
My son was turning 7 & wanted a Dr Seuss party.
What do you do with a bunch of 7 year old boys??  I read a bunch of the books & came up with some real cute chalenges for the kids to do.   I made up posters for the 4 events.
can not get this pic to load straight!!!!  sorry.... moving on...

Then being a summer birthday, thought creating journals for kids to decorate would be a cool way to keep them writing all summer.

I bought journals from the dollar bins at my local craft store, covered them in white & red, then offered stickers, crayons, markers & such to let the kids create the look they wanted.

Favors have soo many options!!  We wanted to include a bookmark, that I made up with graphics I had.  Also added sweet little tag from Cat in the Hat & Alex for joining us at the party. 

Food is difficult....
you need "real" food to fill up a bunch of hungry boys....
Poodles of Noodles became home made mac & cheese with funky twirlly pasta

Green eggs & ham became  Green Beans & Ham
Potato salad with green beans topped with crispy bacon on top.

Cheese trees was cute!  Yinks Pink Ink from Pink lemonade is a must!

Here is the birthday boy working on his journal.

Easy colorful center pieces, tissue paper poofs!  Sooo easy & can be made in any colors you need

Alex also asked for a special birthday chair.  This is a little white scrolled chair I had from when I was little, but the scrolls helped make lots of spots to tie ribbon form.  Made a special Alex's Day sign, added a tissue poof and he felt like he had a kings chair!

And here is the center piece I made for the party.  I used stacked hat boxes & made Cat in the Hat coming out the top! He was the star of the show!!

Then here is the Birthday Boy!

& here is the family pic

Cherish these years, goes sooo fast!!
