A New Kind Of Party

Ultimate Blog Party 2013
There's a new way to party in town...
Okay, well new to me.

While my blog has been around for a while now, I'm still pretty new to the social scene of the blogging world.  So when I discovered Five Minutes for Mom had the Ultimate Blog Party going on, I just had to check it out! And I'm hoping to find some new friends who will check my little corner of cyberspace out.

For those of you who are stopping by from there....HOWDY!

My name is Kim and I love to party!  It all came from a mom who threw the parties that everyone talked about.  They were pretty amazing.  So as I grew, I became more and more involved.  As I had kids, the parties took more of a personal note.  When my parents opened their own candy store, our crafts and parties became more chocolate oriented.  When I followed and opened my own store, things got a little crazy.

So now I'm sharing my love of crafting, candy, and parties.  I try and plan a new party theme every few weeks and post all the projects, decorations, games, favors, and food that you need to recreate this party on a shoe string budget.  After all, it's hard as a mom and a little chocolate makes the day a little sweeter!

Here's 5 of our most popular posts to give you a sample of all the party fun.

Hopefully you'll stick around and party with us on a continuing basis.  There's lots of sweets and fun projects to come.

Have a sweet time!


  1. Hi!!! I'm tracking you down from my own blog, lol. Now I have a huge urge to go eat candy. Which isn't a bad thing, only that I don't HAVE any candy right now and it's 4:30 in the morning here and I can't go GET any candy since I live in the middle of nowhere. It's a dilemma. Thank you for your blog!!! Now I can do things that make me look awesome!!!! Woo hoo!!! :)
