Hi everyone and Happy Sunday! I wanted to share some simple goodie bags I created for Spencer's 5th birthday party that we recently celebrated.  For the past 3 birthdays this child has wanted a cowboy "themed" party -- he is a cowboy at heart and since I don't mind at all -- I was okay with it.  I needed to make about 40 goodie bags so I wanted something simple that I could mass produce…..yet … [Read more...]
