Thank You

Thank you to everyone who so kindly commented on the previous post to allow me to evaluate current comment properties for this blog.  It has come to my attention that Google is now requiring users to have a Google+ profile to comment on a Google+ profile enabled blog.  While I love being able to share more content with readers via Google+ I do not like that it is excluding those without accounts from commenting.  As a result I have decided to integrate my blog within my new hosted website later this year.  If you currently follow me or read my blog know that I truly appreciate each and every one of you and I will update you prior to the move.  Thank you!


Good evening friends if you would be so kind and help me test my comments functionality here on the blog.  I have been working on a new website for Kat Creates and will soon be connecting to the blog portion of the site.  Before doing so I need to ensure that I have all my little ducks in a row so if you would please leave a comment below letting me know you where here today I would really appreciate it.  This allows me to test the comments and tweak them before I go live with the new site.

Back to School

I have spent the past few days thinking about the best way to capture this years first day of school memories.  Last year I used a small chalkboard to indicate what grade my daughter was starting.  The photos were cute but I really want a more creative element this year. Anyone have any ideas they have tried successfully?

Ladybug Birthday

While only a portion of this post involves papercrafting I felt some of you would enjoy seeing how this party came together. My client ask for a ladybug themed birthday party for her granddaughter's first birthday.  Originally all she ask me to create were the party invitations, but at the last minute the young woman who was scheduled to bake the cakes and cookies had to have emergency heart surgery.  So I agreed to create the treats and eats in addition to the invites.
