I Like When The Things I Plan Actually Work Out


This weekend we had a birthday party for my 8yr old step kiddos! Husband and I did a lot of DIY stuff and it actually all went well, yay! It’s stressful chaos but was totally worth it. Everyone had a good time…i hope 😉

The Finished Dragon Wings


The Birthday Girl Was The Only One To Stand Still For A Pic Of The Wings!


Dragon Eggs For The Dragon Hoard Treasure Hunt

The Fabulous Watergun Fight

All and all it was a great day, with great kiddos, friends and family 🙂 Husband grilled some yummy food and my parents brought a gigantic sub! Annnnndd it all worked out, no major hiccups…yaaaasss! The twins got a ton of presents and were excited about the ones we picked up from the renaissance faire for them 🙂

These dragons rest on your shoulder and have controls to move their heads around and make realistic movements…super cool!


My Kimmay got me a sushi kitty =^’..’^=



I Like Hosting Themed Parties

Especially when said party is a birthday party for my step-kiddos! They are turning 8 and are having a dragon themed party. Yay! I also decided that there needed to be dragon wings for all the kids…..this is a fun but slightly more difficult endeavor than I thought it would be. Thankfully husband is good at the part I absolutely could not master…the wire shaping! I. Just. Couldn’t. Do. It. It’s like I looked at it and it went all wonky. But Josh tamed the wild wire into a successful frame for our lovely wings!


I can’t even tell you how many times we burned ourselves with the dumb hot glue gun but several hours later we have a few sorta done! Oh yeah and the party is tomorrow…

We have so much to do but I feel Josh and I do our best work in a high pressure/no time left type situation so it’s all good!


Here we have the finished frame and Arya using the facilities in the background.


Starting to look more like dragon wings yes?


This was as far as we got. I’m going to finish out the edges with either or glitter or both (why the hell not?!) and just see what they need from there.

Another post to come with pictures of success…hopefully, wish us luck!
