Arielle's Penguin Party

Penguin Party

Penguin Cake

Penguin gift boxes (featuring custom light purple penguin)


Kameron, Arielle's ├╝ber talened mom, created this marvelous party! The attention to detail is so impressive. I'm especially loving the way Kameron displayed with the penguin gift boxes--they're so lively.

To see more images of Arielle's party visit Kameron's blog I guarantee you'll love it. That Penguin cake is all kinds of awesome. From the cake pops to all the other delicious looking food it's not to be missed. While you're there checkout Kameron's recipes, I know you'll want to try them out as much as I do. Thanks again Kameron, we really wanted an image of the custom light purple penguins. Arielle's party is beyond adorable!

Holiday Madness/Life in General

Wonderful Life print by hairbrainedschemes (such a clever name)

I couldn't have said it any better. In all the holiday madness of finding that one perfect gift for each recipient on your list, or the countless to do's of daily life, and major/minor irritations this serves as a perfect reminder. Here's hoping we all can relax and simply enjoy the holiday season/life in all of its imperfections!

Perfect Dinner Guests

Elf Penguins at Christmas Dinner
Elf Penguin Gift Box


As illustrated here, the Elf Penguins make the ideal dinner guests. They add charm to the holiday table and sit perfectly still. And, they're light eaters so you don't have to cook much food! Thanks Elizabeth for sharing this with me. Love the pyrex bowl filled with cranberries I believe!
