About Me

My photo
I am not going to lie ... most days we are hot mess here at this little three ring circus I am apart of! I have a great husband, a darling doodlebug of a daughter, two, yes two, boston terriers and a cat ... that is a lot of feet running around!! I love all things creative! I am not the best at anything, but I love to see what other great creative things people do and try to incorporate them into my life! I will warn you, with all this creativity comes the high probability of the following: miss spelling, ranting, random shinanagans! Consider yourself warned.

Two is better than one ...

For the last couple weeks I have been all consumed with Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles ... Little Green Dudes in a half shell! The P-twins party is next Saturday and to say I am all done with their stuff, would be, well a total lie. 

But what I do have done are two awesome wreathes for the birthday boy's front doors. Good thing they have double doors for this double trouble birthday party.

You can find the "how to" over at How Does She! These are really simple to do and the balloon part I did while watching two How I Met Your Mothers ... while Husband fast forwarded through the commercials. We have three Tivo boxes in our house and  are slightly obsessed with TV ... but that is for another day!

Couple things I learned:
1. Each of these wreathes have 225 balloon - really could have used 300 NO PROBLEM!
2. Nothing sticks to balloons - not hot glue, stick dots, double sided tape ... the letters have fallen off onto the floor a million time this week ... stapler here I come
3. The letters and numbers I cut out with the Cricut
4. The Turtles I printed off the Internet onto card stock - cut them out, glittered them and taped them onto a skewer and stuck them right in!

These are beyond cute in person! Such a fun idea for about $30 each. Look around the internet to find big bulk bags of balloons pretty cheap.

St. Patrick's Day Spoiler ... hmm wonder if I can hang some shamrocks on these! HA


  1. Ahhhh!!! I love all the green. So so cute! Thanks for sharing!!! -Shelley {howdoesshe.com}
