Gemini Gizmo/Gremlin Cake Part I

I love cakes and really enjoying making them. In fact, I think I won over Jason’s heart in collage with a Wile E. Coyote cake that I made him. He still reminisces about the taste of that cake. So every year when his birthday comes, 

Jabba the Hutt Cake

Jabba the Hutt Cake

I love birthday celebrations, especially the cake. Hubby’s birthday is always fun and this year I wanted to make his favorite cake with something a bit glutenous…enter Jabba the Hutt. I first make carrot cake  and cream cheese frosting from scratch. It’s my theory that 

Royal Reuse Rumble

The boy birthday is a different sort of animal. There’s usually lots of energy, competition, curiosity, excitement, and hands on activities. So when my friend Becky said she was considering hosting her sports loving son’s birthday at DIY Studio, we got excited. She told me 

Jewelry Plant Picks

Sometimes it’s hard to find a gift that is special enough for a good friend. I  scoured some shops looking for that perfect gift. I later went to the nursery and picked out a plant and handmade pot that I knew my friend would like.

Celebrating Each Birthday

Many times our children’s birthday parties do not fall on their actual birthdays. So to make up for this, we like to celebrate actuall birthdays with a couple of traditions. One fun way of us celebrating is covering the birthday boy or girl’s door frame 

Tie Dye Party

Long gone are the over the top birthday parties inviting friends and family and more friends and family. Nope, this momma is pooped! So this year we decided to have a very quiet and still meaningful birthday celebration for our 6 year old! For our 

Largest Peanut Butter Cup, a Tasty Birthday Surprise

Lucky hubby has his birthday every year during Memorial weekend. I tease him that he doesn’t get a birthday, it’s more like a birthweek, or birthweekend. Needless to say, we love to celebrate it with him and enjoy making him feel special. This year we 

Ceramic Painting Party

You’d think 15 fourth graders in a studio would be crazy and insane right? Well I have to say I was so very impressed with this bunch of courteous, kind, and helpful girls! Their mommas should feel very proud! One girl, Meg kept asking, “What 

Earring Making Birthday Party and Camera Mishap

Another awesome birthday party at DIY Studio. My friend Angela set up this birthday party for her 8th grade niece and her friends. I greet them at the door, put down my camera to shake hands, and the next thing I know my camera throws 

Fairy Art Party

I had such a fun time with this set of girls. The birthday girl loves Fairies and Art so we decided to combine the two for this fun filled birthday party. First I kicked off the party by painting each girl’s face with the item
