Nerdy Valentine’s Day Free Printables

Nerd Valentine free printable

Every year, we seem to go back and forth with the kids about what to do about valentines. Some years, I’ve got a little bit of extra time to do some serious DIY Valentine projects, some years I totally give up and buy the mass produced ones, and then there’s the years when I take […]

A Shiny New Website! Frog Prince Paperie 3.0


I know in my New Year’s post, I hinted at some things that were in the works to change things up at Frog Prince Paperie (FPP). FPP Has a new site design. I’m sure if you’ve come over to the site in the last month, you’ve probably seen the biggest change–the site has been redesigned! […]

superbowl party food ideas

Yesterday, in Post 1 of my Gluten-Free Superbowl Party Food post, I shared some party decor ideas and a super yummy recipe for Buffalo Chicken Dip. Since I first had that dip, I’ve been putting buffalo wing sauce on everything and crying a little that it’s such a bad idea to eat a block of […]

Gluten-Free Superbowl Party Food and Ideas: Buffalo Chicken Dip


My house is not a professional football watching house. I know in some parts of the country, that is sacrilegious. Not that we don’t like a good football game–we spend every weekend in the fall watching 8-10 year olds kick a ball around the field and love our Alma Matter (Go Dukes!). The professional football […]

Way back when, I had the opportunity to work with Random House on creating a Dr. Seuss birthday party to announce the company’s birthday club (a Seuss book a month!) in Yum! Food and Fun for Kids Magazine. The entire party was crafted in less than 36 hours–and hey, a girl has gotta sleep and […]

Google Plus Hangout – Dr. Seuss Paper Balloons

Last year I was thrilled to be able to put together this fun and colorful Dr. Seuss birthday party for Random House and Yum! Food and Fun for Kids Magazine. The party was put completely together in less than 36 hours on a pretty slim budget–but it certainly didn’t suffer on account of either of […]

Happy Hour Friday!

Baby Shower Mocktail-1

As I’ve sat here nearly all day trying to write a blog post, I have been counting down the minutes until I could have one of these: Because really, it’s Friday. I made it through another week. And man, am I tired of thinking. But thinking about that Toasted Smore’s Cocktail got me thinking about […]

Football Craft: Mini Megaphones and Foam Finger for Superbowl Parties


The Superbowl is one of those events that we don’t put much thought into creating an experience for kids for–even so, most of us will have those critters running around our feet for at least part of the game, so it’s a good idea to have something for them to get them in the spirit […]
