So sorry... for the MIA status...

I've been MIA for a couple months because i've been SO busy with everything! After i posted photos of the baby shower in September, I had a wedding I was in in October, and another Baby Shower in November! Not to mention, I've not found some new hobbies. I'm sewing among a couple other things!!

So stay tuned... I will try to post regularly.. but will hopefully revamp my site by the beginning of the year. :)

It's a Baby Shower!

Just wanted to share some of the decor I had made for my friend Angela's Baby Shower. This was a small party with only about 8 people so I didn't go all out for the decor, however, I still made it look nice!

This was the confetti on the tables. 

 This banner was made just for little Brooklynn's room. 

 The Diaper Cake with live Sunflowers on top.
 Closeup of the Onesie Clothesline
 Another View of the Onesie Clothesline

 This is the full view of the onesie clothesline
Photo of the Present table before everyone got there. This animal fabric matches some of the fabric she has in her room for the little one. 

So that's all I have to share for you from the baby shower... sorry I didn't take more photos but this was the major items. It was a quaint little get together that was very refreshing..and a lot less stressful. 

The theme was the colors of yellow, gray, white with just a tad bit of teal on the fabric. Then she incorporated giraffes (obviously). 

Stay tuned for more party photos to come!

9/22/11 - Another SUCCESSFUL Shopping Trip!!

I wanted to share my recent shopping trip with you! 137 diapers (56 of those being slip on diapers). A pack of 216 wipes..1 gallon of milk..1 soda..1 bag of candy corn. Total Out of Pocket: 27.00 (saved 35.00). You could consider that .19 cents a piece for diapers and everything else free!!

Want to know how I did it so you can too??  (Look below the photo). 

CVS Pharmacy is having a deal on diapers this week so be sure you get there before Saturday Sept 24th.

The special is buy 25.00 in select baby products, get 10.00 credit. So this is what you do.

Transaction 1: 2 Jumbo Packs of Diapers (any brand you prefer) (My CVS was out of the jumbo pack of Slip Ons in my Son's size... so they gave me the "BIG PAK" for 18.00 (originally 22.00). So i got one pack of BIG Pak for 18.00 and the other pack for 9.00)
                        1 Huggies Wipes
  Coupons used:  3.00 in CVS Credit I had from a previous trip
                            3.00 off Slip On Diapers (found in Smart Source 9/11 paper)
                            1.50 off Any Huggies Diapers (found in Smart Source 9/11 paper)
                            .50 off Huggies Wipes (found in Smart Source 9/11 paper)
                        My total was 27.00 out of pocket and some change (I did have about 3.00 in Credit 
                               and got a larger pack of diapers.. but the deal concept is still there.)
                       **RECEIVE 10.00 Credit***

Transaction 2:  1 bottle of Coca Cola 1.50
                         1 bag of Candy Corn .99
                         1 gallon of milk  3.29
                          1 50 pack of CVS brand diapers (on sale for 6.00 and some change).

Coupons used: FREE Soda or Candy (must "like" CVS Facebook Page and print out coupon)
                         In Store Ad - Buy 1 bag of Candy Corn (specific brand) get .99 credit.
                         I paid for the diapers and milk with my 10.00 credit
                         Out of pocket... .29 cents!

Feel free to let me know if you have any questions. I'd be happy to help you. OH also.. if they are out of any of the diapers you need/want.. be sure to ask.. many times the managers will substitute something equivalent and sometimes larger for those items.

Good luck! And be sure to follow my blog if you ever want to get amazing deals.. I try to post these as often as I get REALLY good ones. :)

Good Luck!!

La La La La... La La La La... Elmo's World!

Elmo loves his Goldfish.. and crayon's too... that's... Elmo's worllllllllllld!!!! *ahem*

My husband and I are throwing my son an "Elmo Extravaganza" Birthday party on the 17th of September and I wanted to give you a sneak peak. Of course many more photos will be posted as the party is nearer and here!

 This was some 7/8" Grosgrain Ribbon that I actually made. I bought a .pdf graphic and ironed it on to the ribbon.

I tend to want to do these letters at almost every party I throw.. because you will not BELIEVE the response I get on them. They are so easy to make and a great eye piece to see!! So clearly my son's Drew... and he gets his name displayed proudly at his birthday party.

Well... I already told you Elmo loved his goldfish.. But this bag is going to have some little goldfish crackers in them! Just a little something parents can take on their way home in case their little ones get hungry!!

That's all I have to show you so far... stay tuned..after next Saturday I will be writing a whole blog on the entire party.

Would love to hear your thoughts so far! :)

Ciao for now...  <3 Stefani

Happy Halloween!!..What? Premature?

Okay Okay I know it's a BIT early to start wishing everyone a Happy Halloween but I L.O.V.E Halloween!!

I'm a member of a WAHM group on facebook who like to do swaps. One person picks secret partners within the group and those partners swap items with each other. These items can be handmade/bought or a little bit of both! So of COURSE i made mini cards!!!

I have this strange fascination with small cards. They're perfect for ANYTHING.

These cards are approximately 3x3 and are made from kraft paper.
1.) Trick or Treat 7/8" Black Grosgrain Ribbon with 3/8" "Trick or Treat" Ribbon attached to the card with brads.

2.) Mini Ghost Die cut with glitter. Adhered with pop-out tab so it comes off the card a bit

3.) Pumpkin Die cut with inked edge and The Twinery's Baker's Twine in peadpod tied around the stem. Stamp was faintly added that said "Halloween"

4.) This is probably my favorite card. A faint "Boo" to match the orange brads and Charcoal twine also from The Twinery.. to add a little touch of Halloween black/orange on the cards.

I hope my swap partner will like them! :)

Ciao for now!

Bridal Shower - Purple/Black

Okay I've promised everyone photos of my parties... so here are some unprofessional photos (basically they were taken by me). This was a Bridal shower that was thrown for my husband's cousins fiancee (did you get all that?). I will show you photos and I'd LOVE feedback!

This was the Prize and Favors Table. I made these cute wooden letter photo frames with some cute ribbon attached. I loved the look/feel of it.

This was some Dot Garland that I made by hand. I think it turned out a lot cuter than I had anticipated! This was hung behind the food table.

So here is the other side of the Prize/Favor table.. I had some balloons on the back side of this table as well. Purple/Black balloons of course!

This was the food table. I had some pretzel salad, sandwiches, punch, water with lemons, salami wrapped peppers, potato salad, chips/dips and some feathers in a vase for decor. I also had some food labels and confetti. (close up of those below).

Everyon'es favorite table.. the Sweet Treats Table. I have my "Bride 2 Be" banner hanging on the black background. In the Apothecary jars are some various candies (purple and black). From Left to right I have Purple Chocolate Dipped Pretzels, cake Pops, Choc. Dipped Oreos, Cupcakes (the cupcakes up top have the "BRIDE" pennant banner" and then the fruit plat to the right corresponded with the chocolate fountain I had sitting on the counter next to it.

These were some paper lanterns I had in hanging in the middle of both tables.

This was a close-up of the Food Labels and Confetti

This was the Welcome sign on the front door. 

That's about it! I wanted to give credit to The Twinery for the twine I used for the Bride Pennant Cupcake Toppers as well as the twine accents on the front door sign. 

I now have the dot garland and Bridal shower front door sign for sale for someone else to possibly use! So if you're interested be sure to get a hold of me. I promise you I'd give you a steal of a deal! 

I'd love some feedback on what you think! :) 

~Ciao <3

**REVIEW** Elmo Crayons

As some of my followers may know, I have a LOT of parties coming up and I will be posting TONS of photos.. some of my own.. some professional photos. But.. I love giving sneak peaks too and usually with sneak peaks (unless I made them).. comes a Review!

Elmo Crayons!
I was looking high and low for someone to make an Elmo head crayon for a decent price.. I came across some that were full body crayons, but I felt they were just a little more than what I was looking for. Then I came across these!

Pardon the semi-dark photo.. I do parties.. not photography :) .  I ordered 8 of these crayons to see what they would look like before I purchase anymore. I L O V E them! They are the perfect size and the red wax that is used is of great quality! You can't beat these for only 85 cents a piece plus shipping!

She sends them individually wrapped as shown in the bottom crayon. I live in California where the weather on the day I received these was well over 90 degrees.. and not even 1 crayon was smudged with signs of melting..

If you're interested in purchasing some for yourself, and maybe some of the other designs available, check out Isabella's Blue Moon Boutique on Facebook.  You won't be dissapointed! :) Please let her know I sent you :) I'd just love it!

Stay tuned for more fun times ahead! :)

More Monsters!

Here's some more photos of some of the Monstor decor I'm making for a birthday party next weekend.

All in all there will be Monster grins, wall decor, party bag toppers, and food label stakes. So far you've seen the monster grins)... here is some of the wall decor.

I will post a photo once it's all complete of everything so you can see all the items I was asked to make!

(the pen was added to give an idea of the size). 

Aren't they cute?? I'm doing a total of 10.. so again, I'll post all once they are complete! 

These are GREAT to add to a frame once the party is over and decorate a room or great backgrounds for scrapbooks! :) 

Happy 4th of July!

I just wanted to take this opportunity to say Happy 4th of July to everyone. Thank you to all the fallen soliders and current soliders for fighting for our freedom. I have many people in my family and friends who have served in our military and have been fortunate enough to make it out safely. 

Please be safe tonight.. and enjoy your freedom! Thank a solider!

It's a Monster Party!

So I decided to give you a sneak peak on some of the Monster decor I'm making for my friend over at Adventures of Mommy Land. She's having a big party for 2 of her 3 kids.. who's birthdays fall a month apart. She's having it monster themed!! I am making her party decor as a gift to the kiddos! :) So I decided I would give you a sneak peak (full photos of the party will come later..) Here are "monster mouths" These are attached to a stick so you can pop them up in front of your mouth before someone snaps a photo and it makes for some really cute monster memories! :)

Review - 6/5/11 - Barefoot Books

If you haven't tried Barefoot Books yet, you are missing out. Barefoot Books offers beautiful books, CDs, puzzles, puppets and more that capture the imagination, spark curiosity, inspire creativity, and instill a respect for the diversity of the planet and for the earth itself. Host a party and earn free books for your children! Fundraising and business opportunities available! Join my Team and become a Barefoot Books Ambassador for free! 

I purchased 3 Barefoot Books for my son for Easter this year. The titles included The Animal Boogie, If you're Happy and you know, Here we go Round the Mulberry Bush. I was able to get these on sale for 9.00 each (and they often have sales)and trust me... they were a steal! 


All of the books I go came in paperback, however, some books have hardback available. They were all about 10-12 pages long and came with a CD. This CD plays music and reads the book to the children. It's definitely a way to get children who aren't so interested in books, interested! These books are also very cultural. There are a ton of paperbacks, hard covers, gift sets, and even puppets and other unique gift ideas to choose from! 


If you're interested in purchasing some or even just looking into it, check out an awesome vendor.. (Karen D'Agostino) at We Read Barefoot. She is great to work with and even have a facebook page! Let her know I sent you her way.. you won't be dissapointed with your purchase!

A little wine always did me just fine!

Here is a look at some of my personalized wine glasses I've made for customers... All glasses can be personalized (color, font, design).
Price is 6.00/each plus shipping.

Review - Custom Made Crayon Roll

I am SO excited to share this review with you. I had been toying with the idea of getting a crayon roll for my 1 1/2 year old son. He is starting to get into coloring and I don't want to take the boxes of crayons with me when we go somewhere. The boxes normally end up getting smashed and they become useless anyway. So I finally got offered a special price for a roll.. and decided to take the plunge and buy one. 

This, my friends, is my son's new Crayon roll!! It was bought from Ariel's Custom Designs through her facebook page. These sell for 10.00 plus shipping and can be purchased through the above link.

The quality of this crayon roll was PHENOMENAL. The first thing I looked at was the ribbons that tie the roll together. My first thought was... "my son will tear these right off" but sure enough.. I tugged an tugged and to no avail... they did not budge. They are actually quadruple stitched!! (She clearly had little rugrats in mind when she made this design). Each crayon roll holds up to 16 regular sized crayons and she's got quite a selection of fabric!!

Definitely a must have! :) Head on over to Ariel's Custom Designs and let her know I sent you! :)

Let me Introduce myself..

So the beginning of the blog, I think it's only appropriate for me to introduce myself. My favorite roles in life... I am a daughter, sister, auntie, wife, and most importantly, a mommy. :) I have a 21 month old son who is my world.. everything I do is for him... which is why I labeled my blog "For you, Love Mommy."  I've been married for 4-years this September to the love of my life.. my high school sweetheart whom I've been with for 13 years. :)

I started a party decor business called Starlight Starbright Creations ( earlier this year. I've been busy on etsy/facebook making parties special for little munchkins!  I LOVE decor and making parties be so special for everyone. I specialize in themed parties. I create party supplies of all kinds! Soon I will have pictures posted of some parties I have personally done so you can get an idea of what I do! :)

I work part time as well, I love reviewing products, clipping coupons, playing indoor soccer... and ooohhh the list goes on!

I hope you all enjoy the blog and everything I have to offer.. and hopefully soon I can get enough followers to give some freebies! :) <3 to you all!
