happy weekend!

i will be honest and say that i am a little sad that our 6 year family tradition of going to newport beach for a week will be missed. instead the parents decided to go back to our old traditional destination Big Bear Lake. i know the 35 of us will have just as much fun, but there's something to be said about only having to pack a small bag with swimwear, flip-flops, and tanks, laying on the beach enjoying a good read, and riding bikes forever with the wind against your sun kissed face!
here's to you, Newport Beach!

Love the color, the syle, and the simplicity!

LuckyBoySunday

this place is pretty much exactly what i want my future company to look like! i have been conjuring up all my ideas of how i will put together my future shop for kids, finishing the details in my head, and getting ready to put it all down on paper! i ran into this site today and just about fell off my chair! Camilla & Camilla from LuckyBoySunday have created a whimsical, fairytale, dreamlike, contemporary like state in their products. The feel for the collection is so playful but sophisticated. I wish i never saw this because now some will think i am a "copier" but i will say that my future line will be a tad different!

party idea #4 {milk & cookies}

Wow how fun is this party idea? it seems like we always need a theme i.e. princess, batman, trucks, but this one seems simple but fun! found this idea from Creative Hostess!
It would definitely take some work, but well worth it right?

if you need any help with fun valentines for your kids then turn to none other than Martha! These look oh so fun to do, too bad I don't have kids yet!

Valentine's Day Sign Card
Create this card by making signs out of construction paper, doilies, and adhesive letters from an office-supply store. Photograph your child holding the signs, then tape the pictures to construction paper and fold the card accordion-style.

Photobucket

Hand-Shaped Valentines
Send a touching message with valentines traced from little hands.

Photobucket

Patterned Paper Wrap
Store- bought treats are more special when covered in pretty patterned paper. Pen a note on the underside or on a tag attached with waxed twine. Tuck gum into a card stock "matchbook" stamped with a message; sticks of gum sold in large packs often have plain white wrappers that are perfect for decorating with stickers. A lollipop adorned with a sticker and taped to a card stock heart will also be welcome, as would button candy slipped into a small paper bag embellished with die-cut scrap art (available at crafts stores).

Photobucket

Heart-and-Lollipop Flowers
With just a little TLC, colorful hearts flourish as the petals of a new flower variety -- one with a lollipop center and stem.

Photobucket

Folding Hearts Valentines
Friends will be aflutter over envelopes that turn into valentines. Cut a fat heart from paper that has a white side and a patterned side -- wrapping paper works well.

Photobucket

Bonbon-Filled Hearts
Surprise a loved one by hanging a heart-shaped container filled with candy on his doorknob or near his computer.
