Hello Friends, It’s been awhile. I finally got around to making a video on how to make a mini unicorn piñata. Enjoy!
P.S. Happy Birthday, Debbie!
I have seen this little girl grow up so fast…She has a big hearted family that loves her so much and we only want what is best for her. Her Aunt Michele with her kids put together Carter’s first birthday party. And invited us to her home. They had the whole house decorated with pink and purple streamers, butterflies all around, and had a lovely table/high chair decorated.
I wanted to make sure I had a “Turning One” picture so I had Max, Carter’s Uncle & my husband, to help me set up a photoshoot. I made paper banners, and cutout butterflies for the backdrop. And since I wasn’t sure what she would be wearing I quickly made a tutu with butterflies gems and cutout a paper crown for her to wear.
It definitely took everyone to get her to sit-still and look pretty. Thank you for sharing this moment with us. Take a look at at Flickr for more process pictures.

Starting on my valentines gift…
I’m creating mini hearts and unicorns piñatas for the little ones. Stuffing them with stickers, toys, pin buttons and more. The heart piñatas have two openings 1) that can be broken in half or 2) the right corner lid opening.
I’ve also been making cupcake toppers:
I am so happy to be able to be part of the customers’ special day. I do enjoy making these mini pinatas (and other party supplies) and love to hear their stories. When I don’t know the story I like to imagine what they are for… and what kind of party or type of person. I had someone order two pink whales and my mind thought “oooh twin’s party or baby shower.” Love Love it!
I remember making these with my mom when I was younger. I remember putting my tiny hands in her home-made glue in this cooking pot and slapping it on the balloon. I never thought of the process until now. I can see why she did the things she did. Home-made glue is lot easier than Elmer glue (which is what I use). I cherish these making pinata memories and happy to be able to share one of my families traditions.
My nephew turn 10 this year and he requested a Megaman party. I still remember this little boy had a pig party, couple years back, and now we are doing video game characters. AND the next thing you know he wont want a birthday party- he’ll out grow that too. But for now we continue the birthday party at home and included his stuff-animals as part of the party.
1) I created Megaman & Megaman Zero helmets as party hats (available to print: RED, BLUE), by photoshop-ing out the characters faces. Then creating two holes for on each side of the hat. Push the ribbon through each hole and tie a knot to hold it.
2) Baggie Suffers: cutout megaman coloring pages by outlining Megaman silhouette (don’t forget to add crayons), healthy snacks, toys, and bubbles. I stuff the items into a small lunch bag for the kids.
3) Custom cake/cupcake toppers: I used the Megaman character’s logo to create the cake topper. I added more wording to make it more personal. Then I cutout little red and blue helmets for the cupcakes. And with the extra paper material I created star confetti to decorate the table.
I added little details of the Megaman character around the birthday party. More pictures below:
It’s pretty hard to throw a surprise gift to your partner, who lives with you. Surprisingly it worked out. I picked up balloons the day before and left them in my trunk (tinted windows) and I added the Instagram pictures in my car.
I printed out a sheet of Instagram photos by taking a screenshot from Instagram so I can have all the comments that were posted on them. I also added a personal message of the memory on the right bottom side of the photo. You can add this message on the [comment] in Instagram or handwritten in front or back of the picture. Then I punched a hole in the corner which made it easier to attach the balloons in the car.
Left them over night in the trunk of the car. I had to make excuses to get out of bed, “using the restroom,” “need water” & “letting the dog out.” Even though Jax, the dog, wasn’t moving nor making a sound, I picked her up to let her out so I can grab the balloons at 2 in the morning. Back inside, I had left sticky notes & paper in my night retainer-case to make it easy for me. It was 6am, oh no!, I fell asleep, I stuck notes around the house, hung banners, left birthday cards around, etc. Max only asked for a birthday card for his birthday. So I made one, You are my Stud Muffin:
Then the plan was set to go. Max was up at 6:30am, but I had no energy to get up since I’ve been up trying to sneak around. He was so pleased he came back shortly trying to paste & pull apart my late night adventure. Happy Birthday Max!
After we opened gifts, Jax layed-out birthday notes for Max. In this video you will see Jax setting up the notes then we waited for Max. Max tries to give the note to Jax, but she pushes the note back to him with her nose. CUTENESS!
Theme: “One love, one heart, let’s get together and feel alright,” is the motto we should all follow. Plus, Shulie really likes Bobby.
Made decorations: We cleaned up the backyard, put up a tent, make/paint a table, and put some of my vintage furniture outside (take a look at Jazzy’s Vintage for more), hung a window on the Maple tree. Then I reused and painted bottles to us as props, flower vases, or aesthetic purposes. I made a stage with cardboard musicians as the backdrop and painted Red Hot Chili Peppers logo all over the stage and ground (her favorite band). I also found time to make paper hamsa (3 different designs) to use as a banner and flower decorations. Oh yeah, and I made 2 heart pinatas to go with the theme.

Check out my new layout. I created this layout for Max’s surprise birthday party. Max is a marine engineer, whatever that means, I just know that he’s always busy. He designs, builds, and maintains the tugboats. He has lots of funny stories that he loves to share about the crew. But honestly all I can do is picture in my mind what he does since I can’t go with him. I’m sure it’s a beautiful sight.
Print, Cut, Fold, and glue. Take a look at my pictures below.

For my birthday, I had private plans, but my plans changed and I knew that things needed to get done around the house. Brilliant me, decide to create a paint party. Of course, I asked my close friends for their opinion.
Here are some of the responses I got: “You want us to do your chores on your birthday,”
“Oh I see, this year we paint your walls and next year we do the roof,”
These responses made me laugh... and they were coming from the boys. My girl friends were so excited, “it will be fun! Music, drinks and food.”
So with short notice, I made some signs, got some balloons & decorations, primed all the walls in 3 days… I really like the idea of a BBQ paint party and it was FUN.
