I am dyin like not dead but a lil faint... I wanted to share this sneak peek of this phrase/roller stamp that I think you might need....

This stamp is a piece of Pink Paislee's newest collection by Paige Evans.

Remember way back when I had to spray paint one of Studio Calico's phrase stamp pink because they kept sending me black ones!? Sometimes ya gotta take matters in your own hands!!
So glad the crafty peeps over at Pink Paislee heard me :)

Get Ready for summer with Kate Spade! Cheers!

Drink Me! 
So I was eyeing this wine carrier from a winery in Napa and well lets say it was way overpriced.
So I'm going along with my day and wouldn't ya know it!?
A surprise email with a 30% discount arrived from good ol' Kate herself!
I had to order! This wine tote was on sale and I used the code "sunshine" to get the extra 30% off!
Oh and freeeee shipping was included!
at $9.20 this carrier was a steal! I cant wait be able to transport my drinky-poo in style!

Here are some other styles they carried... honestly the black cheers is pretty fun too! 

So this gem was worth the $9.20 compared to Macy's offering it for a solid $20!
ok friends that's all she wrote for today!

The New Hello Kitty App! Say Wha!?

Hey my fellow Hello Kitty friends! Sanrio is getting ready to launch a new Hello Kitty App and they have asked me to be a part of their test group! Yes! You read that right!? Little ol' ME!

I was super excited and responded immediately! Within an hour I was sent the information to login.

Without spoiling the new app its a place for you to share posts about anything super cute! A place where the Sanrio community to gather. 
Here's some favorite pictures I uploaded to the app...

Adorable mug from

Hello Kitty Cricut Cartridge 

My handy dandy Janome sewing machine that I have used a handful of times! I promise to take a sewing class this summer!

One of my fav date/phrase stamps for layouts.  

last but not least ... the day I met this little lady! My bestie Sara and I drove about an hour away to catch her. You know I had to wear my bow #twinsies !  

This app is pretty adorable! Once I opened it I was hooked! I loved making my avatar. It has the cutest designs. The best part was that I also got to request my own ideas on what I like and what I thought needed to be added. Again this app is in the testing phase and I wish I could share more but until I get the go ahead I will be back with an updated post. 
feel free to leave me a comment on what you would like to see on the app and I will def report back to the Sanrio community. 

Happy Friday!
Peace, Love and Hello Kitty!!!

Drive -Thru Soft Serve!

Hey friends! Hope everyone enjoyed their Memorial Weekend!
Here is a recap of one of my favorite places to purchase ice cream.
It's located in Pleasanton, CA.
You don't even have to get out your car! Ha!  
These signs below greet you at the walk up window which is what we did on Saturday.
Opps... I snapped this picture after I tried it! :)
This is pineapple and orange sherbet mixed!
My niece and my son chose good ol' fashioned vanilla.
I love all things vintage and I wish my kids were able to experience life before iphones and play stations.
Thanks for taking this road trip with me!
This creamery is called Meadowlark Dairy.

Locks by Ashley from Flourish Hair Studio

Hey Friends... this is a totally non crafty post but I thought I would share because I am so happy with my locks! About a year ago I had a hair emergency! I mean like a bad bad dye job. I have always done my own hair with kits from Target because you know I DIY everything! Well this one day I decided I was going to let JCP salon dye my hair. Wrongo!
This is my hair now and I am finally at HAIR PEACE!

If you are in my area the babe who worked on my hair is Ashley from Flourish Hair Studio in San Ramon
snapped this as soon as I left the salon.


Ashley is awesome! She is so good at what she does. I swear we talk nonstop and have so much fun when I am there!

The before I will let the pictures speak fro themselves...
Photos on the Left are the bad dye job and the photo on the Right is what Ashley fixed. These pictures are from a year ago and I have continued to go lighter each time to achieve the look I have now.   

Thanks for stopping by and letting me share my nightmare with you! ha!

Vintage Disneyland Themed Birthday Party!

Hey! Hi Friends! Today I am sharing some pictures from my sweet grandbabies first birthday! The theme was "Vintage Disneyland". I apologize now for the picture overload!  
My daughter made this cake and made that topper with my Cameo! I was amazed she figured it after being in the studio for less than a half an hour! 

This here banner came from @craftedbyjen I won it on her instagram! It was perfect for our party! 

How cute are these flamingo's with Mickey hats!?

I still can't believe my baby is ONE!

So one banner couldn't be enough so I made this banner to go on her highchair.

I used an old Disney book and cut the letters with my cameo. The faces were also cut from a book that I found at my local thrift store. 

Here is my daughter's sweet little family. 

Our party got rained out and we had to put plan B into action... Plan B was a Pizza Restaurant that had a party room... 

I did my best to transform this pizza place into a vintage Disneyland setting.

I made fruity pebbles Mickey Mouse shaped  Tinker Treats. I am so happy to report we did not have any Prince Charming Churros left otherwise I would of ate them at home! 

I purchased this book from the thrift store and my daughter painted the middle pages a midnight blue. 
I then cut out letters with my cameo. I also tried printable vinyl for the first time. I must say I give it a huge thumbs up!

too many goodies... 

Our party guests also dressed up as their favorite Disneyland characters.

We did not let the rain stop us ... It turned out to be a great birthday even if we had to move the party at the last minute.

Thanks for stopping by... here is a quick video of my sweet babies :)
