I'm always looking for fun and quirky Valentine gifts that are a step up from the out of the box cards you can find at your local store. I blame it on my control freak crafty nature, and the need to add puns into any and every aspect of my life. This year is probably the last my son will be handing out Valentine's to his classmates, so I knew they had to be turtley awesome!

As a little girl I always pictured New Year's Eve as a night to get all dolled up to head out on the town, staying up late until that big ol' ball dropped, then getting a midnight kiss to seal in the magic of a new year ahead. Now of course, I'm lucky if I'm not already in pj's before 11pm CST to see the ball drop in New York! Funny how being an adult does that! Anyhoo...the former is exactly what I was going for when I styled this girly flamingle. A fun night spent with gal pals complete with a toast to friendship at the end of the night. So grab a glass of bubbly (or our mocktail version at the bottom of this post, al...

Being one who absolutely loves puns, this year’s Galentine's Party theme is “Mint” to be Best Friends Forever. I was going for a glam shabby chic feeling, and finding the mint green sequin tablecloth provided the perfect bit of wow to get the decorations started. I also have a collection of vintage doors and windows, all of which have a slight minty-aqua color to them, so adding them was a no brainer. Our old school chairs received a little makeover with a bit of a gold spray paint, and paired beautifully with the table setting. A little bit of bunting added to the backs of the chairs gave them a hint of whimsy.

Since this is an event for l...

When your photographer calls and asks you to come and play "photoshoot fluffer" for the day, you jump up and down and say YES PLEASE! You grumble ever so slightly when you realize it's at sunrise the day of your birthday, but hey...how many people can say they've welcomed a new year of life with the sun coming up? It was pretty magical to say the very least.
