Party Ideas My Minds Eye Chalk Studio

A few weeks ago we got to celebrate my mother in-law's 65 Birthday.  My father in-law decided to have it be a surprise party and asked my husband and I to do the decorations, I knew what to use right away!  I wanted to use My Minds Eye's Chalk Studio because it has a banner already cut out and ready to assemble. It also works that it has pink in it, with it being her favorite color and all.
I put the banner together, made a special place mat just for her, put some fun cut out sayings on the tables, wrapped washi tape around the forks and got balloons and plates to match. I also made her a mini notebook using the same product. Hope you enjoy the ideas!

It was so fun to set up a party for my mother in-law, she is an amazing women and very much deserved to have a day just for her! Love you Kathy!

Wholesale Scrapbooking Supplies: Developing Your Child's Creativity & Self-Esteem

Young children can develop their self-esteem during their formative years by engaging in scrapbooking. Leeza Gibbons made this point in her America Now interview with scrapbooking professionals Sandi Pirrelli and Rebecca Moran. Gibbons, who is herself active in scrapbooking, said that it is important for children to start chronicling their lives early on to help them understand themselves better. If your children show creativity and want to express themselves, scrapbooking can be a healthy way for them to explore their dreams, feelings, and interests. One way to get things going would be to help them make their own scrapbook and source their scrapbooking supplies from wholesale companies like According to Gibbons, “Kids are spending so much time...texting and on their computers and in front of a TV screen that they really don't have time to decompress and dream and grow and be introspective.”

Halloween Decor

Hello everyone!  Sorry I have been so bad about blogging, I promise I will be better.  So as you all know I LOVE Halloween!  I couldn't even wait until October to put my decorations up.  So I thought I would share some pictures with you of the decor in my house to give you some fun crafting decorating ideas of your own.

So all of my decor is a few years old, so I don't remember what the lines are from the product used, but you could use any of the lines we carry now in our Halloween section to make them your own creation. 

 We have some amazing haunted houses that my very talented sister Shayna made for me along with the bottles and the old books from a thrift store covered in scrapbook paper.  And we used glue dots to get the paper on the bottle to really stick.  I love my Halloween decor and I hope you enjoy it too!

I also included a picture of one of my pictures covered in cob web, because I just love how it ties in you whole house to the Halloween decor.

Also there was a segment on Good Things Utah using some My Minds Eye Happy Haunting product to decorate for Halloween.  Click on the Link here to view it!
