Links I'm Loving: Balloon piñatas, Lorax cupcakes, and more!

It’s been an awesome week – here are just a few things that are going on in the shop! I listed lots of new items on Etsy, including “Boo Juice” water labels, pumpkin water labelspink camo and green camo goodies, LEGO® inspired favor tags, art party printables, zebra Minnie Mouse water labels, and prince party printables. Whew! Also, one of my blog posts was picked as the pin of the week by Not Just A Mommy, and I was chosen as one of the best party designers on Pinterest by Moms & Munchkins. And on Instagram, I’ve been posting some behind the scenes pics, in case you’re wondering what my office or my dog looks like. ; )

And besides all that, I have a great round-up of links for you this week! Crafts, recipes, and lots of other fun stuff, from worm sandwiches to Breaking Bad cupcakes (seriously!).
