Avoiding the Awkward "opening the wrong gift" oops

Last year I started making these gift tags with pictures instead of writing names (that toddlers can't read anyway!). This year I used the iron on transfer papers and came up with these! This little guy picks up his gift every morning and checks out the tree if any more have appeared overnight.

Vintage New England

I found this piece of fabric (actually an old table cloth) weeks ago and was instantly in love with it. I knew I wanted to bring it back to life! My diningroom table is once again a mess, but I made 3 of these pennants with little snippits of New England all over it!


I'm  putting these up on Etsy as a group (I don't think they should be separated) today... so pop over to my Etsy shop and take a look or if you really like them .... get a hold of me! Each pennant has 9 double side flags and is approximately 90" long (that's 7'6"!).

Tiara Worthy Designs and Tees

This was a little project I was working on... not for money but because I literally and truly hate cancer. All forms of it.

But out of this little side project I found out some stuff:
1. I love making fun and colourful designs just like when I was 14 years old.
2. I really like making shirts and long for a room big enough to run a full blown silk screening studio
3. I can still make stuff using some great stuff - iron on transfer papers! It brings me back to a time of my Michael Jackson Thriller baseball shirt along with my Police Syncronicity shirt! I love the smell of iron on transfers!



I love the front designs of the shirts but I truly HEART the little should badges that I thought of adding on as an added special touch. If you have ever walked in a relay or any other charity walk, it's always hard to pick out your team members from behind. This little badge made it easy to pick out all the princess!


See you again in 2011 Team Princess!

Tiara Worthy

This was my last project for a very special event with some pretty awesome people! The shirts came from here and I printed them up using the iron on transfer papers! They turned out great and know I can't wait to make more tees with more designs!

Pay Day Party - More fun!

Party goers earn their money at the candy shop - guessing the number of candies, making chocolate dipped rice crispy squares and decorating their very own candy apples!
Other jobs that we up on the JOB BOARD - Clothing designers (we did tie dye shirts), dog walking, candy makers, baby sitting, and gardening (they transferred flowers in to individual pots to take home).
This was the garden area BEFORE the work started!

PAY DAY Party! Colourful and Super Fun


These are pictures from before the partiers came... above is the dinner (eating area) complete with hot dog roller!
These ribbon flowers were part of their loot bags. ... but only if they had earned enough money to buy them. (and don't you love my thrift store find of a carrying case?)
and I filled my thrift store find with more thrift store finds of vintage MELMAC dishes (these won't break when they are dropped and I love the colours that they come in!)

Pay Day Party - Colourful, fun & sticky

Today was the day and all the prep and planning was all worth it when 11 little 9 year old girls enjoyed the activities, the loot, the decorations and each other!

One of the jobs was working at the candy shop making caramel apples. I don't know if these looked as good as they taste but they had fun making them.

my muses


I thought the ribbon flowers were cute but not cuter than these little girls! One has super long hair... She has Jennifer Anistor hair and she is only two. And the other one, she is totally roley poley and full of spunk and smiles!

Can't wait til PAYDAY!


This is a party idea that you just can't get in stores. I am reaching deep into my bag of tricks and my creative abilities to come up with stuff for this one... check out my little "cheque-book invitations"! Also on my list to do is....
personalize money
cafeteria style food service
corner store ideas
boutique
and of course the games (jobs to earn money with) - some ideas: laundrymat with sock matching service, restaurant with dishwashing duties, a couple clothing manufacturers (who use child labour obviously), gardeners who do weed pulling, singer and street performers (complete with hats and tins to put tips into)... now if I could just figure out a way to build a little starbucks kiosk so I can get a barrista to serve me my coffee!

good thing I've got a week still to go!
