Sneak Peek: Captain Zozo's First Birthday Party Pirate-Theme Design

So many celebrations this past few months got me thinking of what am I going to do with little Zozo's party who will turn one soon. I was browsing through Target the other day and found pirate hats for $2 a pop. Yes... that's it! Pirate theme inspired! Stay tuned to see the entire party collection. I will add it to my Etsy shop next month. Designed and loosely handwritten by yours truly.

Custom Design: Brooklyn Bridge New York Theme

Custom design for a First Birthday Party I created for Brooklyn. Theme: New York Theme – Brooklyn Bridge. Colors: Purple, black, white with a hint of silver. Style: Modern-Elegance and Fashionista! The only thing that I didn't design was the beautiful cake! It was too pretty not to post but the bakers tried to create it the same way I designed the invitations. What do you guys think?

Bits and Pieces of My Week

Photobooth fun from a birthday party...

Face-painting with Snow White. Do you know what Ry asked for?

Sharks, of course! Here's his mean shark face.

Magic Show and my prince wanting to volunteer.

Magic Lady

and her little assistant!

My Zozo gets kisses from my sissy! His hair is getting long. Our tradition is to cut his hair until he turns a year old...He'll be one next month! Yippie!

Ry's big smile when he found extra, extra-large Angry Birds at our local grocery store. No room for food and veggies!

A thank you gift from my client...chocolate-dipped cookies from Hawaii! I created a custom design invitation for her daughter's first birthday party I've attended (above) and we had a blast! I'll be posting my designs soon. Thank you!

Color Me: Polka Dots

Hello. Hope you are having a good day. My mom wore a polka dot blouse on Father's Day which inspired me to post something about polka dots. Do you own anything with polka dots? I sure do have a few pieces in my home. I think they add interest to any occasion or style. It's a classy pattern with sweet sophistication. How do you color your world with polka dots?

Super Dad



Happy Father's Day to all dads out there especially to my dad and hubby. This man is the greatest guy I know who works extra hard to take good care of me, my kids and home. He's my superhero. My crime-fighting partner. My Batman. I love you.
