I am really starting to wish that I could sew, knit, and embroider!  These 3 Etsy Shops are full of creativity and cuteness…I am thrilled to share the talents with you from the Link Party.  I truly enjoy browsing the shops that linked, and I love sharing the good finds with all of YOU!

1st Shop- SQUISHY BEE– Handmade little friends for your little ones!  So much personality…

And, look at the Flower Fairy!  These creations from SquishyBee would make adorable birthday gifts or extra-special party favors.  Be sure to follow on Facebook, too!  I love this shop!


2nd Shop- STICHINNETKA– so many great ideas for birthday party accessories and gifts!  Buntings, crowns, handmade notebooks (bought one for my daughter and it is just so cute and handy!)…

And, here is a notebook similar to the one I bought for my daughter…it opens to have 3 sides with a place to store pencils, crayons, paper, etc.  Be sure to see all of the handmade goodness at Stichinnetka~

3rd Shop to Visit- KING SOLEIL~  Wow!  I love the upcycled baby blankets made from cashmere sweaters and the crocheted sweetness that makes such a wonderful baby gift!

Another Baby Blanket in a different style~

And, I have my eye on this handmade RUG from King Soleil!  I just love it!  It is also upcycled and just so cute!  You can find rugs, blankets, and so much more at King Soleil on Etsy!

Thank you all for sharing your beautiful and creative shops with us!

Celebrating your birthday with a Mexican Fiesta is a sure way to have a great time!  My daughter and several of her friends had a ball with all of the bright colors and (hopefully) vivid memories of a beautiful party day full of fun!  Planning all of the party ideas and details was loads of fun- although we don’t claim to have everything authentically perfect- this is our take on a party that combines Mexican birthday party ideas with a young girl’s likes and wishes!  For instance, we know hedgehogs don’t hail from Mexico- but when she fell in love with a festive-looking hedgehog at a local shop, we decided the hedgehog would make a perfectly fun party favor!  So read on and enjoy- and hopefully you will find an idea or two that you can use for a Mexican-themed party or even a Cinco de Mayo celebration, too- and inspiration to incorporate ideas that make your party perfectly-suited for the birthday child! 


There is nothing like the bright colors and happy prints of Lilly Pulitzer to make every day feel like a party!  For my daughter’s 12th birthday party, she wanted to decorate cakes~ Lilly-style!  So, in order to decide how to mesh the two, I kept thinking “if Lilly had a cake shop instead of a juice stand”… I have to admit, this was one fun party to plan!  It is a blast to see where ideas go in the hands of a TWEEN!  Enjoy and remember, “…being happy never goes out of style!”. 


What began as a simple gesture to introduce my daughter to a wonderful book series has become a special evening ritual for us- reading Laura Ingalls Wilder’s Little House books!  I must admit, I didn’t realize quite how interesting these books would be to her, but she cannot wait to read all nine in the series.  It was only fitting that her birthday party focus around Little House on the Prairie!  Together, we had a ball planning all of the details of her party that related to the books in some way.  At Camille’s request, we focused on some of her favorite parts of the stories… prairie flowers, covered wagons, tee pees, the colors in the drawings of the books,  and “pretty”…because “Ma” liked things to be pretty!

CAMILLE’S CLUBHOUSE ~ Confectionery, Soda Shoppe, Spa

My daughter had lots of ideas of what she wanted to do to celebrate her 10th birthday!  She wanted to have lots of cookies~ and have a soda shoppe ~ and set up a spa for nail painting!  With so many ideas, I knew we should come up with something that would tie it all together.  And, that is how Camille’s Clubhouse became the theme- the Clubhouse is where you can find lots of her favorite things!  We sent invitations with a an insert that had a “password” that had to be unscrambled and brought to the party for “entry”.  That was an easy way to get the guests involved before the party even started!
