 So this isn't really party related...but that's ok! :) 
At church I teach a group of girls that are "tweens" and I really really enjoy them, 
but they can be kind of messy sweet little things.  
We usually  have a project or two, 
and a paper that we complete and it is always such a task to find the right pencil or marker or colored I decided enough was enough and brought this not so sweet rubbermaid container filled with everything home to reorganize it. 

My first thought was to get a bunch of empty cans and wrap paper around them, glue them together and label them.  
Then I remembered that I had a bunch of the cardboard soda carriers and that just seemed a bit more practical.  
I  saw this on pinterest {oh pinterest, you are amazing}  made here and off I went to create our own little organizers.  
I didn't line each section and mine are not perfect, 
but here's the end result.
I think the girls will be ok with our new organinized system. 
Let's see how long they can keep it all neat!

Somethin' fishy....

somethin' cheesy.......
of course it is  GoldFish!

Isn't this just the cutest little gift?? 
The directions are easy and can be found on TammyMitchellPhotography Blog

 Hobby Lobby does sell these pillow boxes if you need some. 
And the grocery store sells the fish.....Ok, so you knew that. 
You probably have some in your cupboard right this very moment.  
We do not. :(

maybe you like this idea 
Pretty sure your adorable child would be very excited to give these to his/her friends at school!

She doesn't give any printable with this so if your heart is set on a Valentine such as this and you are not ok with making them yourself, 
please send an email or comment.  
We would LOVE to satisfy your fishing for the perfect Valentine by making these for you.
Well in all honesty, 
we'd be happy to make the ones in the pillow boxes too.   :)

Winter Wonderland

Here are a few pictures from the 
Winter Wonderland 
themed Christmas Dinner we set up for.
It was a bit well ok very disappointing to find out that we would not be able to hang anything from the ceiling!! 
I had plans for the ceiling.  
Had bought over 200 balloons in white, silver and blue to do something like this: 
 also bought about 100 little snowflakes to hang from the ceiling.  
For me one of the biggest things I love in decorating is the ceiling.  
It finishes the decor.  
So, this party, although pretty was not finished in my opinion and certainly not by the vision in my head.

But whatever...LET IT SNOW!!

This fun glittered sign was easy to make.  
I did however, have the N upside down, 
so had to quickly figure that out.  
You would have never guessed it had I not pointed it out, right??  
Yes, the sign looks alittle alot glittery.  
I just hadn't brushed it off on this picture yet.  
Letters were cut from my cricut and then traced onto the foamboard and then glue and then glitter.  
Wasn't as hard to do as I'm making it seem. :)  

Main stage area:

 The table runners are from Hobby Lobby.  {LOVE Hobby Lobby}
I really loved them.  
They gave a little bit of sparkle to the tables.

Birds were from Dollar store.  
Branches were from the back yard. 
{Kinda thankful now that the big huge gigantic branch fell down, and certainly thankful to my Dad for cutting that big huge gigantic branch all up for me}
LOTS of painting took place to get all these dingy brown branches ready for winter.  :)

The favors were just white candy melts formed into 
pretty little snowflakes.  
I attached a tag with ribbon and they were good to go. 
This is more snow than we've seen all winter this year!
