New To Shop | Honey Bee


What a day, what a day! I’ve been busy as a bee and sweet as honey to the neighbouring roofers who have taken over my driveway. The pounding and nail guns have been a bit distracting, but I have finally got my new collection in the shop! Oh yes, another new collection this week, I have been busy as a bee you see!

Pun totally intended. Buzz. buzz.

I am happy to have my new Honey Bee DIY Printable Party Collection in my Etsy shop!

This is another design I have been wanting to do for a while. Who doesn’t love a cute litte bee and honeycomb? I love me a cute bee and I really wanted to create a collection that was sweet and delicate.

Something that could work for a child’s party or a shower. Hosting a “WHAT WILL IT BEE?”  gender reveal party? Or maybe a “IT WAS MEANT TO BEE!” bridal shower? A little gathering for beekeeper’s perchance?

And I really just needed an excuse to eat an entire package of honeycomb candy. Yes, yes I ate all of it.

The Honey Bee DIY Printable Party Collection comes with all your favorites. The Honey Bee Invitations are sold separately and completely customizable to match your bee theme.

Buzz on over to my shop to check out the new Honey Bee Collection!

Seriously loving these favor tags so much I want to host a bee themed party.  Are you throwing a bee themed party this spring?

New To Shop | Cherrylicious


Ready for a little retro goodness? A little retro, cherrylicious goodness? Becuase today I added my new Cherrylicious DIY Printable party to my Etsy shop and it is totally cherrylicious!

I have wanted to create a girlie retro cherry theme for the longest time ever! I have always loved the polka dot and cherry combo, so very girlie, so very 1950s retro, so very rock-a-billy, baking housewife, little girl twirling in a circle skirt that spins above the waistline. Oh yeah! With a bit of feminine scalloped edging and ribbon trim. yes, I think this is it!

This collection makes me want to don my favorite party dress with a pair of peep toe shoes and twirl around serving Shirley Temple’s with a side of cherries jubilee! I think little girls and big girls alike will love a little cherrylicious party. Oh the ways you can spin this collection whether your birthday girl is turning 3 or 30. Cupcakes or cocktails, you choose!

Do you love this collection as much as I do? So girlie, so fun, so makes me want to sit in the grass with a basket of cherries and teach my girls how to knot a cherry stem with your tongue. If only I knew how.

The Cherrylicious DIY Printable Party Collection comes with everything you need to create your own retro girlie party, including party circles, bottle wrappers, banner, tent cards, party flags, favor tags and scrapbooking papers for a little crafting and cupcake wrapping. 

You can grab the entire Cherrylicious Collection in my Etsy shop!

Need some invites to go with that party collection? Invitations are available separately.

I think I just might have to watch CryBaby while I bake a cake. Now where are those peep toes?

New To Shop | Easter in Stitches


Any cross stitch lovers out there? I have been a lover of cross stitch ever since grade 4 when I convinced my aunt to take me for a weekend and teach me the home art of cross stitch. i still remember my first cross stitch: a little heart sampler with the words “I love Mom”. I’ve been a regular stitcher ever since.

So for this Easter, with the art of cross stitch on my mind and the desire to create a simple, homemade celebration, I brought my love of cross stitch to my love of parties and created this sweet little Easter Cross Stitch Collection.

Only three items, available separately in my Etsy shop. Keeping the holiday simple and homemade.

The Easter Cross Stitch Tent Cards create a lovely place setting, but they would make sweet favor tags/thank you cards when attached to Easter treats! Don’t you think?

The Easter Cross Stitch Party Circles for decorating cupcakes and bars, or perfect favor tags when attached to little bundles of sweets for the kidlets that may be celebrating with you this weekend.

And the Easter Cross Stitch Bottle Wrappers for decorating your bottled beverages, also perfect for bundling up your napkins and cutlery.

Sweet with touches of homemade, just how this mama likes it!

How are you decorating for Easter this year?

New To Shop | Pirate Collection


Yes, I am back! Back from swimming in the Atlantic, back from the land of sun and sand. Le sigh. Even though we have had unseasonally warm temperatures here in Ontario, I do miss the ocean so very much. Especially now that the cold has creeped in again. I have been adjusting to not swimming everyday and keeping busy-busy behind the scenes since I got home. Even though it’s been quiet here, I have been posting over on my Facebook page over the past week, so if you haven’t checked it out yet, get on over there and ‘Like” it to catch that action!

Just before I left for March Break, my friend Magdalena from Oh So Chic Celebrations Event Design and Styling asked if I could put together a pirate theme for her. So of course I said yes! I mean her work is amazing! I knew that if I created something, in her hands, it would look incredible. The pirate theme has been on my list of designs forever and this was the perfect chance to make it happen.

I am dying to see and share pictures of her event, dying I tell you! But I do have a few pictures of this new collection which just sailed into my Etsy shop this morning!

Party circles and party flags. I am loving these party flags, perfect for food and cupcakes.

But wait till you get a look at the just-for-this-collection, mast style party flags. They are awesome!

Seriously awesome, yes?! You can turn any treat into a pirate ship with these party flags, mini treat cups full of carrots or cupcakes. Or make a simple little boat out of construction paper like I did, glue  or staple the ends close, place a weighted tealight holder in the bottom and fill with treats. Can you imagine a table full of pirate ships filled with sweet booty for your pirates to fill loot bags? I can!

Need some toppers for those loot bags? Those are included in the set as well.

The full Pirate Collection is available in my Etsy shop and it includes Party Circles, Bunting, Bottle Wrappers, Tent Cards, Favor Tags, Loot Bag Toppers, Party Flags, Mast-Style Party Flags (for ye boats filled with eats and treats) and Scrapbooking Papers.

Invitations are sold separately.

I’m off me hearties! Can you tell it’s Talk Like a Pirate Day around here?

New To Shop | Elephantshoe Collection


When I was a little girl, my friends and I would play a little guessing game. We would sit face to face and one of us would first silently mouth the words “I love you” and ask the other to guess what we said. The one who was guessing would answer, “You said I love you.” Then we would do it again, but this time we would mouth the words “elephant shoe”. The one who was guessing would again say, “You said I love you again.” And we would answer, “No, that time I said elephant shoe.” And then we would go back and forth randomly trying to figure out when we were saying “I love you”  and when we were saying “elephant shoe”.

I have played this game with both of my daughter’s and now when I say “Elephant shoe!”, they know I mean “I love you.” Have you ever played this game? Hopefully my new Elephantshoe Valentine Collection printable will encourage you to play this sweet little game with your kidlets!

The Elephantshoe Collection has everything you need to throw a sweet little Valentine’s Day party at home or in the class room! There is an ‘I love you’ banner. Large and small valentines to give to family and friends.

Party circles for decorating cupcakes, lollipops, treat bags and more!

Treat bag toppers for bundling up a selection of treats and sweets!

Bottle wrappers for wrapping around bottles of water or soda pop or utensils wrapped in a napkin.

Tent cards for labeling Valentine’s treats or for place cards on the table.

A sweet collection for a sweet game. Want to play?

You can get the Elephantshoe Valentine Collection in my Etsy Shop! Just in time to share the sentiment of elephantshoe with your family and friends.


New To Shop | More Than Chocolate Collection


Valentine’s Day is a sweet and simple affair around here. There is lots of love in the air, heart shaped boxes full of everyones favorite home baked goodies and love notes. I truly believe that some of the most memorable expressions of love are also the simplest expressions of love. And that’s where this new collection came from, a simple expression of love.

More Than Chocolate, the abbreviated form of  ‘I love you more than chocolate’ is a set comprised of just three simple items, note cards, mini chocolate bar wrappers and treat bag toppers. It doesn’t matter if the treat bag is filled with mini wrapped chocolates or with home baked chocolate chip cookies.

As long as it’s paired with as many love notes as you need to express just how much you love your love.

I love you more than my Blackberry. I love you more than gumballs. I love you more than pain au chocolat! Leave love notes scattered throughout the house for your love to find on Valentine’s Day. Fill a box with a stack of I love you more than… note cards for your love to savor. Or set a lovely table for a home cooked Valentine’s Day meal and place note cards and heart chocolates on each plate.

Head on over to my Etsy to grab your More Than Chocolate Collection. 

It’s available now and it’s only $5.00. Little cost for big love!

Grab it now and I’ll love you more than gumballs! Aaah who am I kidding, I already love you more than gumballs.

New To Shop | Sweet Love Valentine Collection


Are you ready for a LoveFest? I certainly am! After a month long house of sick, we are finally on the mend and ready to feel love. Will you BE MINE?

Yes, that means that I finally got together some Sweet Love for Valentine’s Day! And I’m so glad you’ve come back after all the quiet this month. Did you know that I’m a sucker for you?

I am so ready to focus on love and write out valentines.

And wrap up sweets for the girls and their classmates. Yes, using my new Valentine’s Day collection of course! You might want to use it as well. The Sweet Love Collection has everything you need to put together a selection of sweets for your valentines; a banner for showing your love, pretty papers for crafting, party circles for your cupcakes and other treats; pillow boxes for candy jewelery (or the real thing, ah-hem honey); mini chocolate bar wraps, valentines and lollipop covers.

I wanted to make it easy to put together your valentines, so the Treat Bag Tops are sized to fit standard sandwich baggies because I know we all have those in the house! And if you happen to have cello treat bags lying around, the Treat Bag Tops can be trimmed to fit. I was thinking about you.

It’s all about chocolate and lollipops in our house. I have a bag of heart shaped lollipops just burning with love and willingness to be wrapped up and given away. Perfect for my new lollipop covers! Did you know you can address them to someone you like/love on the back?

The Sweet Love Collection is now in my Etsy shop! 

Are you ready to share your sweet love?
