Cereal-sly Glad We’re in the Same Class Valentine

cereal-sly valentine

I've been a bit lazy lately. Would you believe I actually went to the store and bought Super Hero Valentine's and Goldfish packets for my son's class Valentine party? Yeah. Me niether. I let him pick them out, feeling guilty the whole time. Why should I feel guilty though? I mean, I'm a working mom, I have tons of stuff to do, there's nothing wrong with giving a 3 year old a store bought Valentine. Big deal. So I got them...last week. Monday this week rolls around and I texted my husband," I'm going to Target after work today to return those hero valentines. I feel guilty using those. I'm better than that. LOL" I mean, I'm a craft … [Read more...]

Lipton Iced Tea Peach Pomegranate Spritzer

lipton iced tea peach pomegranate spritzer

I love finding new drink ideas when I'm planning parties and showers, which ends up being several times a year usually. Whether it's a big party or a small friends gathering, it's always nice to have a "go to" refreshing drink for my guests. Recently I had the opportunity to try out Lipton Diet Green Tea Honey Ginseng and Lipton 100 Calorie Half and Half (Tea and Lemonade) and I really enjoyed both products. My favorite though was definitely the half and half, which didn't taste "diety" at all seeing as how it's so low in calories. I came up with a really fun drink idea using Lipton 100 Calorie Half and Half...and I'm going to share it … [Read more...]

DimplePrints Valentine’s Round Up of Free Prints!


For my new readers, some of you may not know, but I have another blogging home called DimplePrints, a party printables online shop owned by Carli Eklund. She and I have worked together for a little over two years now (we finally get to meet and room together at SNAP this year!) and I provide the blogging/media side of her business and she's the genius behind all the printables she sells and creates for the blog. We've put together quite a collection of Valentine's Day freebies over the past two years, so I thought I'd share them all with you today in case you were still stumped on Valentine's ideas!

martha stewart binder

I'm heading off to Texas this week to visit my inlaws...it's been a while since we've gone anywhere so I'm really excited to go. The one thing I HATE though is traveling through airport security with my computer, my bag, and my child. BUT the timing couldn't be more perfect with what I've recently got a chance to try out!! Martha Stewart's Home Office Line with Avery at Staples is going to make my traveling so much easier this week! Look at all this cuteness! They sent me an awesome 15" padded laptop case to try out and I LOVE it! It's the perfect size, not too bulky, but not too thin where it doesn't do its job. And it's CUTE … [Read more...]

The Cards We Drew Facebook Fanfare Party

Facebook Fanfare Party

If you haven't noticed The Cards We Drew is undergoing some changes...I migrated to WordPress this week with the help of Robin from Grits Designs (she's been wonderful to work with if you're looking to migrate or re-design). My new site will hopefully be more user friendly and will have some great new features with being in WordPress. If you're contemplating making the switch...do it! It's wonderful. I also have decided to start up a weekly Facebook link party--Facebook Fanfare Party! It's "not your typical" link party...it will be a weekly Facebook post where you all get the chance to link up your favorite posts of the week. Then I'll … [Read more...]

Valentine’s Heart Willow Wreath

heart willow wreath

Happy Monday!! I'm really excited to share some fun Valentine's projects with you this week! I've kind of tried to stay away from wreathes recently because to be honest...I have a TON! A woman can only have so many wreaths...right? BUT I couldn't resist when an idea came to me this weekend that was so simple and fun! This wreath started out a little differently. I wanted to use some really pretty sparkly paper in three shades of pink with glitter all over it...but I tried to use both a heart hole punch and my Silhouette to cut out hearts and the paper was just too thick and I wasn't about to cut out 50+ paper hearts by hand. So take two … [Read more...]
