Birthday Bash with the help of my Silhouette Cameo and other inexpensive ideas

Links to this post
My kiddos had their birthday this July and we had so much fun!  I wanted to have some cute decorations but not spend a lot of cash since they are so young and I am not sure if they will remember all of the details.

We celebrated with family at the baseball park since they really love the OKC Redhawks.  We were fortunate enough to be in a suite at the park to stay cool since it was sorta hot.  We had the usual pizza, cupcakes and party favors but this year, the decorations were created using my Silhouette machine, so I added my own "touches" here and there.

10 reasons why you need your own "craft room"

Links to this post


 Howdy all.  Wanted to share something that I thought might be helpful to push some of you into having a space you call your very own!  See, I just decided to turn a spare bedroom into my craft room the other day and already I feel so much more at peace.  I love the thought of having things all in one place instead of strewn all over the house while working on projects.  I put it off for a while because I could not justify getting rid of the bed that is intended for overnight guests.  However, I can't remember the last time a house guest slept on that bed. So I thought I would give myself the "green light" and move forward.   Hopefully this will be the push some of you need, to free up some space of your  own. 
So here are my 10 reasons in no specific order.

I have heard of a place nearby that has indoor inflatables for kids but I have not yet been able to go. Anything that provides exercise and tuckers my kids out at the end of the day is Aces in my book. Also my kiddos are at the age where the bounce houses and other inflatables are no longer scary as long as there are similar aged kids in there with them.
 

And once they are inside- watch out. We have to lure them out with promises of chocolate and strawberry milk, both are always a hit.

If you had a chance to read my pre- review to Andy Alligator's in Norman, then you will be ecstatic to know that we went, we had great fun and now we are recuperating!  We went on a day when the temperature shot up to almost 100 this past weekend and wouldn't you know that the very next day, it was 80 degrees out?  You know what they say about the weather in Oklahoma right?
If you don't like it, just wait a minute...It will change!
