Paper Christmas/Pine Tree


When I was making these paper trees, I was picturing the beautiful snow covered pine trees.. We don't get snow where we live, but every winter we drive to the mountains which is just an hour away to play in the snow. Even though we don't have snow around where we live, I am trying to bring a little bit of white Christmas in our home, by decorating with these white paper Christmas trees..:)

Laser Tag Birthday


Before organizing this laser tag party, I didn't have the slightest idea about how the laser tag would be. All the ideas came from the birthday boy himself, since he had been to a couple of Laser tag parties of his friends and wanted a laser tag birthday party. And I tell you what, at the party, I got to play a couple of laser tag games and what fun it was!!!. It helped that the staff at the party place were super cool and kept the kids engaged.

So, here are some of the pictures from the party. The snack table is always a fun way to get the theme going.

Paper Christmas Tree


Is it too early to start thinking about Christmas. Well, the stores already have Christmas stuff out, so maybe not.

Last weekend, I was cleaning up the piles and piles of magazines that we have collected and thought it was time to get rid of old ones. But instead of just throwing or giving it away, I wanted to see if I can do or make somethings with it. So, one of the things that I made from it, was these folded Christmas tree.

It also reminded me of another paper Christmas tree that I made last year with old magazines and it happens to be one of my popular posts too..:) . Check it out here, to see how I made this one

Halloween Water Bottles


I am late again ..:( I thought I will have this post ready before Halloween, but just got busy with stuff..

I made these water bottles for a Halloween party. I loved it when I first saw the printables here. I like that it adds a fun way of spooky, just the way I wanted for a kids Halloween party. Well, it is late for this year, but mark it to make your own using these printables for next year.

Spiral Paper Backdrop


Sometime back, walking through the mall and doing some window shopping, noticed these beautiful backdrop at one of the store window displays. These were made with papers and you know how much I love paper. I had to come home and give it a try. And I am glad I did, these turned out beautiful.

Birthday Classroom Favors


Few days back, when we celebrated our daughter's b'day, we wanted to celebrate her birthday with her classmates too. In the past, I have taken cupcakes to be shared with the classroom, but with the policy of no food items to be shared in class, I was looking for different ideas.

Mermaid Birthday Party!


This year, my daughter wanted a Mermaid Birthday Party. So I was decided on throwing a swimming birthday party for her at the local YMCA swimming pool. Till few days before the party, when I wanted to book the pool, I came to know that the party slot was only late in the evening, which didn't work for us. So had to come up with other option. I ended up having the party at home, but had to incorporate some water mermaid related games and activities.
