An Elegant and Classy Gift Card Holder

I don't know about you but I ALWAYS feel guilty while giving someone a gift card or voucher for their birthday. I feel bad that I couldn't think of something really thoughtful to give and feel that vouchers is like the easy way out. The only way I can feel better about it is if I present it in a really nice way so when my mother's birthday rolled around and I purchased a gift card for her, I was glued to my crafting table trying to create something really spectacular to package her gift cardNow my Read more...

A Chart for School with the Itsy Bitsy 3D Stickers

Spectacular Gift Wrappings

I think the origins of my love for craft began with wrapping gifts. I loved going over the top with dressing up my presents. Even if the gift itself wasn't much, I felt it made the experience of receiving a gift substantially more enjoyable when the gift itself was wrapped impeccably. So this blog post is all about spectacular gift wrappings. I have 2 gifts to present. For one I have created the gift box from pattern paper and dressed it up with ribbon, flowers and bows . For the other, I used a Read more...

All babies are special, they bring so much joy, happiness and love to a family. But some babies are literally miracles and that makes them a little extra special. A friend of mine had one such baby.

Through it all, she had the most wonderful support team apart from her husband of course. They were her mother and her mother-in-law. Now 3 months Read more...

Measuring Dad for Fathers Day

Father's Day may be this over-hyped holiday made popular by greeting card companies but I still think it's worth celebrating. Perhaps it's because I have a wonderful father or because my husband is a wonderful father to our little tots. So I really wanted to do something special to commemorate the occasion.

Cupcakes and Cookies with a Plunger Cutter

My little girl recently turned one and I chose sunflowers as the the theme for the party. I love baking almost as much as I love craft so I had a blast working towards bringing the theme to life. Of course, once I got my hands on the Sunflower Plunger cutter from Itsy Bitsy, everything was smooth sailing.  My cake turned out awesome but ultimately I felt it  a little small so to add to the quantity, I made little chocolate cupcakes surrounding the main cake. Each cupcake was topped with a double Read more...
