Spider Cupcakes {Spider-Man party sneak peak} #SpiderManWMT #CBias

Does your family LOVE Spider-Man? Our family sure does.
My oldest son is a little too old for trick or treating this year,
but that doesn’t mean he can’t have a little fun on Halloween.
So this year I’m throwing him & his friends a
The Amazing Spider-Man themed party on Halloween.

Over the next few weeks I’ll be sharing some of our fun “spider” themed plans!

Skateboard Time with Shaun White Supply Company {family fun} #ShaunWhiteSupplyCo

skate boards for kids

My 9 year old son, Rylan, has wanted a skateboard for a long time!
{He even had a skateboard birthday cake one year!}
Seriously, he has been asking his dad & I for a skateboard for years!
So we finally decided that he was old enough
& big enough to get a skateboard! Wahoo!
So we headed to Walmart to check out their skateboards for kids.

hello. goodbye. {announcement & giveaway}

Remember yesterday I told you about what I learned at Bloggy Boot Camp?
One of those things was having a plan & purpose for your blog & business.
Where do I want to be in 5 years?  What do I want to be doing?
This has been on my mind a lot lately.  As my blog has grown I’ve been given many amazing opportunities.  Buuut I have to realize that I can’t do everything.
Blogging/crafting takes a lot of my time.  Don’t get me wrong I enjoy it A LOT!
Almost too much! ha! For the past year & a half {in addition to the blog}
I’ve also been running an Etsy shop as well.  I have decided to close my shop.
I so appreciate all the support & my awesome customers. Thank you!

Morning Has Broken CD {giveaway} ~ 3 WINNERS!!!

Back in November of last year I was able
to review the All Through the Night CD
from Steve Alder & Julie Keyes. 
Our family absolutely LOVES listening to it still.
We were actually listening to it in the car early last week,
& then I few days later I received an email from Steve
letting me know that they were releasing a brand new CD,
Morning Has Broken. Yay!  I can’t wait to listen to it.
Up for grabs today is your own copy of Morning Has Broken.
{Even better we will have 3 winners!!!}

Their new flute and harp CD will be released at Deseret Book on October 1.  It features playtime songs for small children.  For those who enjoyed All Through the Night, Morning Has Broken targets the “slightly older” crowd with peaceful yet playful renditions of popular childhood favorites. Designed to be both magical and calming, these familiar tunes are timed and paced to help your little ones relax while helping to get a few of their wiggles out.

Emmy-award-winning composer Kurt Bestor has again provided all of the inspiring arrangements for Morning Has Broken.  And the CD cover photography and digital artwork in for both All Through the Night and Morning Has Broken was created at the hand of commercial photographer Mark Mabry (creator of Reflections of Christ, Deseret Book).

You can check out the audio clips of the songs that can be heard at their website:  http://www.fluteandharpcd.com.
