Graduation Money Cake

I love a good crafty way to give money. Last year I made a Money Topiary but this year I took on a Money Cake. Similar to the Money Topiary,  you can start early and just add the $ as you have it available.  It was a little easier to count the bills needed this time. …

Graduation Money Topiary

I don’t generally like to give money.  But sometimes, it is indeed the best gift to give, especially for a high school graduate leaving the nest for an out-of-state university.  After some searching for a crafty way to give, I decided on a money topiary.  Love, love, love how it turned out! The best thing about this gift …

Game Day Food

Getting to 20 gifts was easy, even into the 30’s wasn’t so bad once you Google a little. But it wasn’t until 3 …

The inspiration for this party came from a great party blog, Hostess with the Mostess. My friend went to work printing …

Minecraft Birthday Party

Do you know what Minecraft is? If so, do you understand its appeal? Frankly, I just roll with it. Long accustomed to my husband and son playing whatever is THE game of the moment, I didn’t think much when the idea of a Minecraft-themed birthday party was thrown out there. I should’ve known better. Very little …
