Gender Reveal Party

Pin It!
My nephew's beautiful wife {we call her "Little T"} just threw a great "Gender Reveal Party" for her friend. I loved the darling ideas she used - like the sign on the front door.
A festive party mood was set with fun refreshments. {Like m&m's with "Nuts" & "No Nuts" - ha ha!}

The guests show their guesses with blue mustaches & pink lips . . . 

The lucky couple reveals the gender at the end of the evening . . .

Triple Chocolate Cookies

Pin It!

I have shelves of cookbooks, but really only use two or three of them on a regular basis. One of my absolute favorites is the Nordstrom Friends & Family Cookbook. This cookie recipe comes from Nordy's & it is always a big hit. I like it because it is different than the usual chocolate chip recipe. Give it a try!

Accessorizing a Wall Unit

Pin It!
One of my clients is steadily moving from room to room - updating & decorating her home. She & her husband purchased this Ikea wall unit - then didn't quite know what to do with it. {Which is very common & perfectly understandable!}

Measuring Tape Bracelets

Pin It!
I love to sew & tape measures just make me happy. They seem nostalgic - maybe because I can still see my sweet mother {who was a much better seamstress than I} with one around her neck - sewing her heart out.

A Dr. Seuss Girl's Camp Theme

Pin It!
Please note: if you're a regular Faith, Trust & Pixie Dust reader - welcome! You're in the right place. I changed my blog name. Hope you like the new name & look. 

Each year we host a "girl's camp" for our church's young women ages 12-18. We usually camp out in tents, but this year we will have cabins in the mountains nearby {WAHOO!}. It is customary to pick a fun theme to add a festive atmosphere to our camp activities {however, a spiritual element is very important also}. For our group, we've chosen a Dr. Seuss theme - specifically . . . 
Oh, the Places You'll Go!

Ch-ch-changes for the Blog!

Pin It!
When I originally chose my blog name, I spent weeks on the decision. {In case you're new here - the name I chose was Faith, Trust & Pixie Dust}. What I didn't know back then is that Disney {and I love them - bless their hearts} is quite protective of their "stuff". 
So-o-o I've been working on a new name for AT LEAST a year. I have come up with a hundred BRILLIANT names - which other people came up with also {only they were first!}. I finally found a name that I love & that I think reflects me & my style - Honey I'm Home.  I think it's going to be a lot of fun & I hope you like it too.

Studio 5 TV Appearance & Embellishing Keys

Pin It!
{It was so fun to share my key collection on Studio 5. Please see the video at the end of this article.}

If you read my last post, you know how much I love old keys. Even if you don't have a collection of your own, your keys can look special with a little help.
