{Freebie} Your very own Goodbye Letter from the Elf on the Shelf

If your children are anything like mine...they do not want to see their elf on the shelf go! While Mom and Dad have been having just as much fun with the elf as the kiddos...it is a charade that is interesting to keep up! Like other people...

The misadventures of Frost the Elf - Intruder Alert!

Elf Log November 26th - Day 2 - The locals are crazy around here! I was ambushed by a band of misfits! Crime scene in session and the police had to come to contain the riot! I sure hope we get along tonight! In the meantime...I hope Santa rescues me from this gag and bond! signed Frost Elf...(giggle)


 Who sent you and Why are you here?! Police are on the scene. ;)

Say Hello to our little Elf friend!

{Business Tips} Spelling is NOT universal...

In the party world....we often forget that people of different countries spell words quite differently. We encounter this on a daily basis when customizing designs for clients. What one country deems wrong, another deems right. Grammar is also this way...but that is a whole different post! Most of our clients are American...although we were born and raised in a British/Canadian spelling state of mind. Many times you will see us spell words in the American way when it comes to words like Honor/Honour, we became tired of being told we were spelling things wrong....when technically we were not. ;)  We will NEVER get use to the word customising...we simply use customizing. :) So if you have never thought about it...it can be very daunting.

{Practice Serendipity} You're Never fully dressed without a SMILE!

 
Your clothes may be Beau Brummelly
They stand out a mile --
But Brother,
You're never fully dressed
Without a smile!

Who cares what they're wearing
On Main Street,
Or Saville Row,
It's what you wear from ear to ear
And not from head to toe
(Thaaaaaaat ma.....ha. ha.. terssssss)
 

We will never forget...



11 years ago today...on the 11th day of September...I sat at my desk speechless as the tragic events unfolded in our favorite city . Compelled to pay our respects to countless innocents...we travelled 500miles in the aftermath (you can read about it here). We will never forget.

{Featured Parties} Rock star Party

Party like it's 1999! A few months ago we received a request from Abby of NevaPlume. Her little Man Hudson wanted to rock it out with his friends with a Rock Star party! Abby decided on our aqua boys rock star invite & we custom designed the rest of the collection for her. Hudson insisted on having VIP all access passes for his friends to wear... with a spot for their names. Super cute! Speaking of Cute...how cute is this little Rock star?!! Cute with a capital C!! We love this party...Love the backdrop, drum props, THE CAKE, the fun food ideas and the chandelier makes us feel like we are at Hard Rock Live for an up close and intimate concert! Great job Abby!
