Egg~travagant Easter Party!

Here are some of my favorite things to throw spectacular egg~stravagant childrens Easter party!

First things first! You'll need some sweet invitations... I found this super
cute Easter Bunny Invitation from Share Holidays. I love this
 Bright Easter Theme from Gwynn Wasson Designs with its
blue, pink and green palette.

Sweet treats are a must at any kiddie get-together! These fun
 Easter Egg Cookies from Hello Naomi would make perfect addition
to your table. Martha Stewartcan show you how to make these
lovely Lollipop Cupcakes.  Bakerella makes these adorable
 Easter Egg Cake Pops, but if you feel inspired to create some
pops of your own check out her instructional How to Video.

This sweet candy table by Wants and Wishes will put a smile on any child's
face! Their designs are available on their Etsy Site as a printable project!
And Martha Stewart designed this Pretty Petal Cake that's sure to
put a little "spring" in your step!

All these great party favors are from Martha Stewart. Envelope Bunnies
are super simple to make and great to hold all your party goodies.
Confetti Eggs are one of my favorite party favors, there's just something
about making a sparkly mess that I love! Chick Beanbags are great for
all ages and can be used for games as well as a favor to take home.
Everyone will look cute~as~a~bunny, in these adorable felt Bunny Ears!

Spring Fling!

It's finally spring time (although I'm not quite use to the 90 degree
"springtime" weather here in West Texas yet). But the bushes around
my appartment are starting to bloom and my car is covered in pollen
so it must be that beautiful time of year. I have been urged by the
 lovely weather to create some fun spring inspired onesie designs...
 And to celebrate you can get a 10% discount on any of my creations!

All There Is...

 An Etsy shop with style, flare, and personality! My amazing friend
Deidra Casto, from WV, created a shop on where she sells
flowers hair clips, earrings, purses and knit wear. She started making her
lovely pieces for herself and then for others after requests came pooring
 in. She opened her Etsy shop All There Is this past December
where she specializes in accessories and can do custom orders.

Her inspirations come from the fabrics and materials she uses.
Deidra recycles (upcyles) clothes and jewelry as well as uses other
scrap material to create her designs. From Mustache Clutch's to
Button Earrings her cute degins are sure to turn heads! She wants
her products to be accessible to everyone from newborns to
grandma's. There's something for everyone!

Her advise for other Etsy sellers, "Promote yourself on Twitter,
Facebook, and blogs. Be personal. Also, don't get discouraged
when things are slow. I've only made a few sales, but I'm still
 happy to have my creations on Etsy so that I can show
others how I express myself."

Check out her Facebook Page and follow her on Twitter: AllThereIsShop.
She also makes great tutorials like How to make a Boutique Hair Bow!
Deidra is a wonderful seller with an amazing store! She adds new items
all the time so be sure to add her to your favorites!
