So, I have been inspired to create an art studio for my girls. They have watched me work over the years and all my “creativity” has rubbed off on them. So, being the awesome mother I am, I am going to give them their own space. OK, I’ll admit, it is more for me than them because, I WANT MY OFFICE/SPACE BACK! I said it! Call me selfish if you want, but my babies have taken over.
Here are a few ideas, I have gathered from #Pinterest. Let me know which one is your favorite. 🙂
Let me know which one you love and why, please. Looking forward to hearing what YOU have to say! – Cute Beltz
I’m inspired!! Yes, the Pinterest bug has got me again, but this time, I will not attempt this project, I will hire a professional! I love birthday’s and what better way to celebrate, than with a fabulous themed birthday cake. Checkout these cool ideas.
Dr. Seuss is a definite favorite and this cake illustrates a few of our favorite Dr. Seuss stories.
Who doesn’t love a minion from Despicable Me. Not only is the franchise totally awesome, this cake is fun.
This is technically not a “cake”, but we had to include these super cute cupcakes. Little Monster cupcakes are so much fun and easy to serve. 🙂
Totally, LOVE!! All the superheros represented, can’t go wrong with Superman, Batman, the Hulk and Spiderman.
Birthday’s are always so special and I do my best as a mom to make it special for my girls. The last themed cake was Lalaloopsy, Mint E. Stripes, which was a huge hit!
It’s the thought behind the gift that counts, but when that gift arrives in a beautifully hand wrapped package it’s a bit more special. Receiving a fabulously wrapped gift doesn’t just build up anticipation for the gift inside, it adds to the gift as a whole. You can do something simple, like wrapping your gift in kraft paper and decorating it with washi tape, or get your hands dirty and make some yarn pom-poms. However you decide to decorate your gift, you can always find something lying around the house to use. If you’re looking for some easy and creative gift wrapping ideas for your next birthday party or holiday, take a look at our roundup of DIY gift wrap ideas.
Have Spare Tissue?
Do you ever find yourself with packs of tissue paper but not gift bags? Here’s a way to use all of that spare tissue paper in a fun, creative, DIY way. Try layering different colors of tissue paper for a simple yet eye-catching look.
For an assortment of smaller gifts, keep them all together in a wooden box like this one. These cases are usually only a few dollars from a craft store. Fill it up with filler grass and organize the individual gifts for a completely aesthetic presentation.
Make It a Piece of Art
If you’re ithe creative type, share something special by designing original art and showcasing it on top of the wrapped gift like this one. It’ll be a present to remember, and hopefully the person receiving the gift will want to keep it as a way to remember that special day.
Rolls of Fun
For odd-shaped or tubular presents, try the Tootsie Roll twist. Depending on the fabric you choose, you can make this gift fit any occasion and stand out, too. Then, with two short strings, you can tie simple bows around the ends and voila!
Thinking Outside the Box (or Bag)
You can find many interesting alternatives to the traditional wrapped gift or gift tote at any container Store – just use your creativity! Look for a container that goes with the theme of your gift, add a ribbon and bow, and presto! You’ve created a one of a kind gift presentation, and a gift within a gift!

With Easter just a few days away why not add something more than candy to your kid’s basket. Check out some of your ideas for making your child’s Easter basket fun, creative, and unique.
Gift Baskets for Toddlers
Toddlers are just beginning to learn about Easter and what it means to receive an Easter basket. Keep it simple with brightly colored plastic eggs. In the case of toddlers, you don’t need to fill the eggs with anything because anything small enough to fit in an egg can be considered a choking hazard. In addition to plastic eggs, you can include Easter themed soft books, building blocks and stuffed animals.
Gift Baskets for Preschoolers
When filling an Easter basket for a preschooler, first, think about what kind of container you’d like to use. Certainly a traditional basket works well, but there are lots of other treat holders you can use. Consider filling up something that your little one can play with or put to use later like:
play grocery cart
Preschoolers and Elementary Kids
If your little one is head over heels for craft projects and coloring an excellent idea is to arts and crafts themed Easter Basket full of special goodies. Crayons and coloring books are a must. Include items such as markers, finger paint and/or paint and paintbrushes. You can’t forget the construction paper in a variety of wonderful colors.
From infant to teenager, books are perfect Easter-basket filler. This may be a clichéd but the truth is that books are one of the best gifts that you can ever give to children on any occasion. Books help to develop a habit of reading in children that they can pick up as a hobby. Reading helps to expand the mind and creates a sense of curiosity and thirst to find out more. For toddlers you may want to choose cloth books or board books with thick pages and bright colorful pictures. Preschool and early elementary students enjoy books about animals, other children or their favorite television characters. For older children and teens, pick the newest book in a series they enjoy or a subscription to a favorite magazine.
