Hi All,
I know that it's been a while since I've blogged, but it was a really busy spring!
I hosted 2 birthday partys, organized an end of the year gift and party for my girls at shcool and am just getting into the groove of summer!

My main shop has been grossly neglected, which I hope to fix real soon, and my supply shop has been quite active, which has taken up a lot of my time.
I'm so happy to say that I have shipped my 36 inch round balloons around the world!
United Kingdom, Spain, Isreal, Belgium, Australia, Canada, USA, Germany, Estonia, France, Japan!

If you are not aware of this product, come have a look!

They are 36 inch round balloons, which means they are really big!!!!
I have a variety of colors to choose from including your standard colors of black, white, gold, silver, red, yellow, green, pink, as well as some unique colors, wild berry, winter green, ivory silk, diamond clear and more.

Come have a look!

I have some other great products in my supply shop, so be sure to have a look around!

Happy Monday

36" Round Balloon

Hello everyone!
Today starts the first "official" day of my kids March break and we plan to take full advantage!
We have planned a full week of skiing ahead of us.  The weather has been around 8C so I'm not sure how good the skiing conditions will be, but we plan to tough it out.

There are a few new products in my shop with the most exciting and fun for me being the 36" round balloon!  This can be found in my supply shop!  Pinkysyummystuff

I do hope to ofer more supply items this coming week, and also to update my card and gift shop Pinky Creations as well this week!

New Year, New Me?

Hi Friends!
Welcome to a New Year!

It's been far too long since I've shown my blog some love and although I don't make resolutions, I aspire do some regular updating on my blog!

There has been a lot happening both on the home front and with my shop.  I have not been creating or posting too many items in my shop but I hope that will change soon.

It's only January, but I'm already in full on party mode.
The party is not until April, but there are a lot of details to work out between now and then.

Here is a glimsp into the first stages of planning a party, well the first and second.  I start with the theme and then the color scheme.  I'm pretty sure I'll be going with the red and black theme, however as you may or may not know, I change my mind more times than a chameleon!

 


I can't reveal the theme as what fun would that be.  I will be updating my blog to allow you all access into the progression of the details.  With that being said, be sure to check my supply shop as I do have some new and exciting products for sale!

Happy Shopping!

T.G.I.F

Set of 12 receipe cards 

Well folks, it's been a while since I blogged, but I have been very busy with finishing off the last days of school which was on June 28th, a quick Canada Day get away and then getting the girls ready for camp!  There has not been a lot of room for me to get my affair in order until now!

I've finally got a few new items to add to my shop and I hope to have it fully stocked by the end of the month.  I hope to get in some design work with new items for the holidays (yes I said holidays and that means Halloween and Christmas!) as well as some new summery items for all to enjoy!

Happy Shopping and stay cool!

7th Birthday Party

Well I'm not sure how this is possible, but my daughter is turning 7! and I need to plan a birthday party.

This birthday seems to have snuck on me and I'm in full panic mode trying to get her party together!

I have 4 weeks and a day to plan and execute the perfect party! Last year I started planning in November, so I"m not sure what the hell I'm thinking!

After thinking about it for a few days I have, I mean we have decided to have a spa party! I think that this will be perfect for her and her friends.
I was thinking of pink as one of the colors as I have two girls and pink is always the fallback, but I decided to go out of my comfort zone and pick another color, so I decided, I mean we decided on sunshine yellow and aqua! Let's not kid ourselves here I'm the one that is on the ball for this party! Baby blue was on the mind, but I found so many cool decor items in aqua that I thought that would be a great accent color to the sunshine yellow!

So after spending countless hours on the internet, I'm not sure what we did without it, and researching lot's of other spa party ideas, I think that I'm set! My only issue, which I'm sure that I'll encounter many, is the guest list! I have way too many girls to invite! I'm trying to not think about it and hope once the invites go out I'll have a few no's althought I need to know early enough so that I can order a few key items early enough so that they arrive on time!

My planning stages thus far

Colors - sunshine yellow and aqua blue
Theme- spa
Spa staff - booked!
Invites - layout planned just waiting to add one element in order to send them out
Printables - 3 completed of many (which I feel really good about)
Food- still working it out
Cake- not even on the top of my mind!
Layout - well we are having an unbelieveable warm winter/spring, so I'm hoping to be able to host my first birthday party outside!
The layout will include a food, craft, dessert, drink, and welcome package station

There's 4 weeks and 1 day to go, so wish me luck!
Oh did I mention that my youngest birthday is May 21 and she is expecting something fantstical!

HELP!

Happy Shopping!

I bit the bullet!

Picture taken with my new Canon T3i

I have been drooling over the Canon Rebel T3i for a while now! The reviews have been fantastic and the pictures look amazing!
Well being an online seller, my pictures were always sucky! (I'm not sure that's a word, but it's the best one to describe my pictures!)
I started on my Project Life and as I was printing off my pictures the quality was terrible! The pictures are too dark and some are not in proper focus.
This lead me to Best Buy online! They were running a great sale on their Canon camera kits and I bit the bullet and ordered one! It took 2 days to arrive which was amazing!
I bought the
EOS Rebel T3i with 18-55mm
Canon Speedlite 320EX Flash
EFS 55-250 lens

It all came as a bundle! I'm not sure how to use any of this stuff and thankfully I do not have to run around today, so I was able to set up the camera and take a picture or two.

I'm in love!
It was expensive, but I think that my business and kids are worth it.

I'm already thinking that the macro lens, a carrying case and a remote controller are in my future!

I hope to be able to bring better quality pictures to my business as well as my life!

Happy Shopping!
