Happy Valentine’s Day!!  It is good to be back…I have been out of town this last week hence the reason for the lack of posts.  My dad suffered a stroke so I spent my time in the ICU with him.  I am home now and so thrilled to say he is doing great!  So, today I am sending lots of LOVE to him in hopes of a speedy recovery!

Well…it is back to work for me…and in case you never peeked at my “Sweet Tweet” Collection…here it is!!  My sweet and talented friend Nancy from A to Zebra Celebrations and I collaborated on this party that would be great for Valentine’s Day or a darling baby shower.  We managed to pull this off for LESS than $100.00.

How did we do this?  Thanks for asking…here are some tips

1.  Borrow cake stands, platters, dishes, jars – ask around…between Nancy and I we had enough of these items to pull together to complete the table.

2.  Visit the Dollar Store – our local Dollar Store had some great seasonal items that could be incorporated into the party that were just the right colors.

3.  Treats – You don’t need to splurge on all of the treats…homemade it your most budget friendly option, but it is great to have one fabulous item, whether it is the cake, cookies, or cupcakes…that items(s) can take center stage.

4.  Make the party a playdate – for some of the secondary holidays…turn your party into a playdate.  Keep it small by limiting it to a few kids.  Provide the main food and drinks and have other mom bake a treat to bring and share.

5. Coupons – This is a must!!  Joann’s, Michaels, and Hobby Lobby always have coupons…strategize how to use them for that higher priced you have been eyeing up.

6.  Get crafty – try to make as much of the decor as possible by being creative with party printables

These are some super simple tips to help minimize the moola you spend all while throwing a super sweet soiree!!

Happy Valentine’s Day Chickies!!! x0x0 ~ rebecca

Ok…so I have so much to share from my trip to NYC for the Dreamers into Doers Event but I need to start somewhere….here we go…you ready??

Where we stayed

Doubletree Chelsea – so awesome (they give you warm chocolate chip cookies when you check-in)…the rooms were a bit small…oh about 120 sqft???  but we managed…heck…we had the time of our lives!!!

Who I roomed with

Nancy of A to Zebra Celebrations

Jill of Modern Cupcake

Andrea of Dolce Drive

Day 1 – Evening

Me, Nancy of A to Zebra Celebrations and Jill of Modern Cupcake flew in and headed out into the city…

It was cold but we we all bundled up, nice and snug!  We really didn’t have a plan, we just knew we were HUNGRY!  So in a city known for sheer deliciousness we set out to find some grub (;

that’s me…the TALL one in the middle…LOL!!

After walking in a few circles, getting into a cab and sitting on some chewed up pizza..blah…we ended up here!!

Restaurant – The Cafeteria

How was it? – Delish!!

What we ate – Macaroni & Cheese Spring Rolls, Calamari, Cobb Salad & a Turkey Burger

Ahhhh…YUM!!!  So, with full bellies…we headed back to the hotel for some much needed R&R.  There we met with the cool chicks of The Tomkat Studio where we gathered in our room for a night that resembled a cheer camp slumber party!  Go…….TEAM!!!  Such a good time!!

Ok, on that note I am signing off for today (since it’s Saturday) and I will be back with more to share later!

Peace out chickies! xoxo~rebecca

So here I am…3:30 am sitting in my hotel room in NYC.   Behind me tucked away are three amazing chicks that I have been beyond fortunate enough to spend the last two days with along with many other awesome talented chickies also attending this fantastic conference.  For those who don’t know, I am in New York attending the Martha Stewart Dreamers into Doers Conference.  I have SO MUCH to share but I need to go to bed since the wake up call is in 2 hours so….nighty nighty or should I say rise and shine??  I promise I will post pics SOON!  xoxo~rebecca

Hello, hello!!  Ok…so as you all my know I am a design chick…graphics, parties and blogging all came from me needing an outlet to express my love of design and creativity…any kind of creativity…any sort of design.  With having two small kids graphics came naturally and seemed to be a great fit since I was somewhat homebound…and the parties???  I have always LOVED to plan a good party!!   This all has evolved into a look into my daily life…this is what I love and am so passionate about  but I have to admint my FIRST love is interior design and my DREAM would be to land a spot competing on HGTV’s Design Star.  A few years ago I submittted an audition tape to HGTV’s Design Star…I think it was season 2?  Well, not sure if my tape ever reached the hands of a casting director but I do know that I was not a contestant…LOL!!  Although, I was not a contestant on season 2, I am no stranger to HGTV…my start with Project Nursery came from submitting Brandt’s nursery on HGTV’s Rate my Space.  Some of my designs have even graced the front page of HGTV’s Rate my Space…most recently my holiday decor seen HERE.

A few of my gal pals from design school (my original fan club – Erlinda, Dawn & Heather) have wanted me to resubmit an audition tape.  Well, last year my “fan club” wanted me to give it another go but I was literally 9 months preggers and could not bear the thought of seeing myself on camera in that condition…yikes!  So that brings me to today…whew…season 6 is now accepting auditions!!!  The deadline to submit is January 15th…so that means 9 days to get my booty in gear and get some footage of this chick on film!!!  Wanna see some of my design work?  Click HERE and HERE…oh and HERE too!!!  So if you don’t see me for a few days…that is what I am up to (:  Wish me luck!!! xoxo~rebecca
