Chic and Simple New Years 2013

Forget Christmas - You know what is even more fun to plan and decorate?! New Years. I love the classic theme of black, white and metallics - every year you see a new take on it, but it rarely excludes these must have colors (or lack of colors!) and I don't think it should ever change - look at this beautiful curation I found!

Do you add color to your New Years party?

Let's get crafty!

 My hubby went and bought one of those awful particle board bookshelves at walmart last year. It is awful - you can see the particle board, the white coating is peeling, it just looks like junk. I guess you get what you pay for, right?

I am working on Milo's playroom, and will also be making that space my sewing area. So I want it to be bright, cheery and full of joy. I need shelving, but that particle board horror is NOT my idea of joy, so I will be re-vamping it!

Here is what I will be doing to it - rainbow-fying! Ours will have 5 shevles, so we are nixing pink. We already have the tester sized tubs of all our rainbow colors from painting our Pez shelves in our bedroom!

(sorry for the awful yellow tones, this was a quick picture of the sling for a buyer)

I will post my tutorial when I get the chance to take pictures, but it is super duper easy and I'm sure you can figure itout - hopefully I can add in some tips on small things to make the project easier. I will be using the shelf for my fabric up top, and milos books and toys on the bottom.

Alright, off to get crafty!

Recipe Thursday

Thursday is recipe day :)

Kevin & I have been on a health kick lately. Broccoli, spinach, kefir, you name it.

Some nights we don't feel like being healthy. Pizza, nachos, wings, you name it.

But a funny thing happens when you decide to eat healthier... all of a sudden the wings feel like a brick in your gut, so it seems much less appealing. This week, I decided I could cook our cheat meal instead to cut some of the grease factor in hopes of not feeling ill after treating ourselves.

Here is what I made!

Baked sweet and sour chicken with fried rice. Kevin and I are huge chinese food fans, but since moving from Ottawa, we have been cursed by bad chinese food at every turn. This recipe was so good, it's actually the best chinese food we've had since Ottawa. Super sweet gooey yummy chicken, and salty oily rice! It was still a rather heavy meal, be fair warned!

Secret life

I thought today I would write about - gasp - myself! Not my child, not my messy studio, or my husband. Me, and my life beyond motherhood, wivery and work. I swear, it exists. It doesn't parade around all day like it used to, but comes out in wisps and strands occasionally. So here is a wisp and a strand of my true self - I am a pole dancer. Well ... the dance part is debatable. But I learn new triccks and do them on a pole. Here is one I did yesterday. Enjoy!

HOW cute are these pink cupcake swirl bags? They fit 5x7 photography prints and are great for loot bags as well.

This one is self explanatory. Come get your goodies!

These notepad favor bags would be great for lunch box treats

And our lantern selection is expanding to include colors!!
Are there paper decorations we don't carry that you would like to see? Drop us a line!

Treasury Time


I'm so happy to be a part of such a stunning treasury!

Daily Pin: Dinner, pinterest style.

Today my daily Pin is dinner. I plan to make Asian peanut noodles with chicken. HOWEVER - no peanut butter. So please check back to find out this fascinating swap's result - I will be cooking it with almond butter. Exciting, people. Get hyped. Here is the recipe I hope to use and abuse. What do you think?

Deep breathe...

Ahh, a year later.

My business blog is gone. GASP. I don't want to go into details, but the web developer and designer I used to make my website ran with my cash. I was able to use the blog for a year, but couldn't renew it without her, so a fresh start is forcibly in order.

It is all at once very upsetting and very cathartic. A blank slate.

I hope you'll join me for party ideas, DIY madness and some giveaways :) Also, many updates on mommyhood. Many many updates.
