I am always trying to find ways to sneak fruits or vegetables into anything and everything. My kids have gotten to the point where they will actually eat their vegetables now, but it is more challenging when we go out or when they are at school.  The fruits and vegetables sometimes still come back home in […] continue reading...

When throwing a birthday party, it's usually easier to keep things as simple as possible. For my nephew's first birthday, my sister couldn't think of a cute party favor that would be really easy to put together. She figured that most kids love bubbles so she bought enough Miracle Bubbles for all the kids coming […] continue reading...

For my nephew's first birthday, my sister decided to create a DIY Photo Booth. Given the fact that most the children attending were really young, organized play wasn't quite an option.  So she thought during all of the running around, parents might like to get photos with their kids, AND it would be a great way to […] continue reading...

Summer is here and it's a great time to start a business venture! I was recently talking with a neighborhood mom who wanted to start earning an income from home since her youngest child will be starting school in the fall. Joining Stella & Dot's team of Stylists would be a great opportunity for her since many people, […] continue reading...

The trouble was that no one else knew […] continue reading...

I made these cute cupcakes for my nephew's first birthday party. It was a "cute as a button" theme. I made both vanilla cupcakes and chocolate cupcakes. I took the easy way out and used instant cake mix, but made the icing from scratch. There was just too much to do, and I can handle […] continue reading...

Now that my girls are old enough to choose a few things to decorate their room, we have started to look at different kids room decor ideas. Their bedroom has been very plain with almost bare walls.  I didn't decorate it at all, (unless a pretty Growth Chart counts) which is considered my my friends […] continue reading...

When preparing for a party, I like to be as prepared as possible. I usually like to make as much of the food and desserts as possible and my sister is the same way. Prepared store bought food is convenient, but can get expensive so we do what we can to save wherever possible. One […] continue reading...
