Box Costumes

Rubik's Cube Costume

I just saw this costume on the Today show and thought, wow — easy and fun!  You can create it using one box or three boxes askew, solved or unsolved, large or small, with arm holes or without.  Wear tights or black pants underneath.  You can get as fancy as you want.  If you have truly waited until the last minute — simply spray paint your boxes black with quick drying paint.  During the 15 minutes it takes for the paint to dry completely, cut out your  squares of colored paper.  Now glue or tape them to box(es) being sure to leave space between the squares so it appears they are outlined in black.   If you don't have boxes at home your local postal store or office supply store  generally stock boxes.   If you don't have a paper cutter or glue gun consider investing in one for the next time!

Peace and Love Party Theme, Ideas & Supplies

One of our favorite parties of all times was Portia's Peace and Love theme Bat Mitzvah party. It was not only colorful and festive, the theme was thoughtful and perfectly appropriate for the occasion. Ever since, this theme has sat patiently waiting on our “to do” list. Recently we received an email from Shauna planning her daughter's 8 year old birthday party and looking for “peace and love” theme ideas. So finally we have an excuse to move it right up to the top of our list. As we began gathering the best of the best “Peace and Love” party supplies, we quickly realized its versatility since it can be dressed up and down, made elegant or cute. You can decorate this party in bright neons or in Thanksgiving and holiday colors. Not only is a Peace and Love theme perfect for adult and children birthday parties, sweet sixteen, quinceanera, and Bat Mitzvah celebrations, it is also a meaningful fund raising theme, festive holiday party theme, and great for a kick-back, college party or school dance.

Blurb Photo Books – Capture the Memories!

Blurb Photo Book: Washington DC Photo Book Cover

Blurb Photo Books – Capture Your Memories with Professional Bookstore Quality Binding, Paper & Printing!

I finally finished sprucing up my house with all the my great One Kings Lane finds so I can now concentrate my efforts  on creating my next Blurb Photo Book.  I want this one to capture all the memories and amazing photographs my husband and I made when visiting his brother Andy in Washington D.C.. last Fall.

Both of us had worked at the White House many moons ago and it had been ages since we have gone back to visit so we felt like kids again – wide eyed and energized by DC's dramatic architecture, constant political banter, and great eats.

As I began pulling my favorite photos, I knew right away that Blurb was the perfect platform for this type of photo book.  Although I love Shutterfly for my everyday snapshots, I turn to Blurb when I want a more artistic, professional style product.  Blurb is perfect for professional and amateur photographers, designers, and book-lovers since they are obsessed with quality and sticklers about top-notch binding, gorgeous paper, and professional printing.

Blurb books are bookstore-quality – you'll want to share and show them off for years to come.

And best yet, Blurb is running an April special:

Blurb Photo Book: Washington Monument Photo BooK Cover

Blurb Photo Book: Washington DC Eagle Photo BooK Cover

Make a Blurb Book by April 30, 2013 and take 15% off with promo code APRIL15!

I am pretty sure I have decided on this photo of the Capital for my cover photo but would love your input,  Do you agree or prefer either this photo of an American Bald Eagle we spotted in a leafless tree as we strolled the Mall or this stylized photo of the Washington monument?

Party Hearty!
