Minnie Mouse banner (revised!)

Ok so I made a Minnie Mouse banner for a friends daughter, but I got an idea to make it better (I am always finding ways to make something better or at least my own). Here's the revised finished version:

And here is the original:

Much better huh? Glad I visioned another way before I adhered the letters! Additional views:

The project cost about $5.00 to make.  
  • 2pk 12x12 black glitter paper from Target (scrapbook aisle)- $0.99
  • Pink polka dot ribbon from Michael's Craft Stores - $2.00 (on sale)
  • Chipboard circles (packaged as a chipboard book with 5 circles on a key ring) from Michael's Craft Stores - $1.00 ea
  • pink, black, and white paint (on hand)
  • sealer (on hand)
  • gloss varnish (on hand)
  • Aleene's clear gel tacky glue (on hand)


  1. It's cute, I like it much better with the circles!!!! Ashton's birthday is coming up, what are you making for it? :)

  2. Thanks Leslie! Just let me know his theme or colors and I'll be happy to make something.

Lucky in Love 💛

Its always an honor to be apart of any event or someone's special day, but a wedding has an unique place in my heart. A couple's biggest day, the celebration, all the preparation and money that goes into making sure that it's their version of perfect and it goes on without a hitch. That is where I come in for this Lucky in Love couple. When Cyndi came to me about decorating I was all in before she could finish asking me to be their wedding decorator. This was the first wedding that I had more than just tablescapes to execute. I was in charge of crafting a picture frame photo prop, sweetheart table initials, flower girl basket. a bouquet with bling and boutonniere with style to match both Brides' personality 😉.

The color scheme of gray, shades of yellow and a touch of sparkle were perfect for this 7-7-17 summer wedding. Cue the pictures:

Gender Reveal BaByQ theme

The mother-to-be's dad is a barber and her mother is a wonderful hairstylist (I know from first hand experience).  So the theme to the reveal party: Barber shop or Beauty shop? Clippers or Combs? 
My friend/hairstylist Kisha is always coming up with out-of-the-world (way beyond the box) themes for parties so I had to come through with her vision. You don't wanna even know what her first theme was gonna be 😣.

Hollywood Sweet 16!

I love any party theme but the Hollywood theme gets a little more love because you can be as glamorous as you want. 
I was tasked with making the rep carpet stanchions and "velvet" ropes and a mini step repeat background for a Sweet 16.  For the stanchions: concrete, small pie pans for the molds, PCV pipe, caps and sleeves (they might not be called that but you get the point), glitter tape, glitter sealer (it is a must trust me), 7/8" gold cup hooks and a drill to make the holes.
For the "velvet" ropes: installation tubes, fleece fabric, red ribbon, and plenty of hot glue 😉
