Quick Craft Firecracker Decor

I’ve been buying crafting goodies from Pick Your Plum for only a couple of months now but I have to say I’m hooked! They have the cutest stuff at really great prices. No I’m not paid to say that; I just really like them… anyway I saw this Firecracker set from them about a month ago and knew I could make something cute with it. At the time I didn’t have an exact plan, then two weeks ago they had patriotic Washi Tape and it all came together!

DIY Little Blue Favor Box

Next week is a Baby Shower for one of my best friends and I’m so excited to see how the party comes together!

With the summer around the corner, the heat here in Southern California has been creeping up… sometimes its in the 90s and its only spring!!!

Time to put the kids in some summer time pjs. I try to save money wherever I can, so I thought why buy new pjs just to get shorts?
