    When our kids were little, we had big blowout birthday parties at our home. We figured at the toddler age, we were getting in on the celebration just as much as they were — simply for all making it through another year! But now that they are in school, they have their own ideas of the kind of party they want, and we’ve tended to scale back and have smaller parties outside of our house. But that doesn’t mean we don’t want them to look fabulous and be festive! Read More

    I am a paper fanatic, and something tells me that if you love Paper Source as much as I do, you might be, too.

I love the thrill of finding notecards that I know no one else has seen before. There’s something about sending unique stationery in the mail that seems so much more personal, too.

  10. DIY Stationery Center with Guest Blogger Rebecca G. from Not-So-SAHM

    A stationery center for our kids is one of the projects that has sat atop my “DIY To Do” list for quite a while (the list is loooong). Now that the kids are both old enough to do much of their own writing (even though many of their spellings are quite creative), I thought it was about time to get it together.
