I found this cute magnetic, foldable holder at my local Dollar Tree. I put it on my fridge and have all my coupons in there. You could put this anywhere, a refrigerator, magnetic memo board, locker, etc. A cute and inexpensive way to organize in 2010!

Swirled Cheesecake Nibblers

I have had this recipe for a couple of years now and finally decided to try them. I am not a huge cheesecake fan, but, they looked very delicious! I got the recipe over at:
I also used my Martha Stewart cupcake liners--OH SO PRETTY!!!

Valentine music shaker

I found this idea on another one of my favorite websites:
I would highly recommend using Chinet paper plates instead of the regular ones. With all the paint on them, they kinda got flimsy. You cut out a heart shape in 1 paper plate and then tape a ziploc baggie over, so it becomes see thru. Just cut the baggie in half. Then, you can fill it with whatever you want. I wish I had had some confetti to put in there. The kids enjoyed painting and "ShAkInG" their musical Valentine!

Donut snowmen

Ok, I found these on one of my FAVE blogs:
I didn't have any fondant for the nose, so I improvised and used orange gel. I think my 2 & 3 yr. old didn't mind. I think they were cute and we scarfed them down fast!

My first purchase for a Circus themed birthday party!

I found my first party favors for my daughter's 3rd birthday (in July--YES, I do plan ahead!), which is going to be a circus theme. I found these at The Dollar Tree.

New Years Eve

Kids drink glasses!
These are party hats! Made with sugar cones and frosting. Very cute! There are supposed to be tassles on the top made from licorice, but, I think she didn't have the time to finish. The kids loved them!

Adult table place setting!

Kids table!
We went to a friends house for New Years Eve and this is what the hostess did to make the evening special. I loved everything! Thanks for a good time!
