“Outrageous Kid Parties” on TLC

12 COMMENTS

Um. $40,000 on a party for a 6-year-old? Apparently, it happens, and it happens often enough to warrant a TV special on TLC. The screen cap teasers look even more fab than nearly every wedding I’ve attended! Cue the horse and carriage! From TLC’s website: “Whether it’s a birthday party, a graduation, or any milestone celebration, each week OUTRAGEOUS KID PARTIES documents parents as they go beyond their means to ...

Pink Ponies: A Case Study

NO COMMENTS

An old co-worker of mine shared this on facebook the other day, and I laughed until I scared the dog. I might find this extra-funny since I spent nine lives working in advertising, but it’s super duper funny for ANYONE who’s gone the extra mile in planning a birthday party lately. Party girls and plannin’ mamas, YOU WILL RELATE! : )

Teacupcakes and chillbots!

1 COMMENT

I’m a sucker for cute little oddities – weird but cool things that will make people ask you, “where’d you get that?” So I was totally excited to find a website called Perpetual Kid. It’s chock full of fun stuff that might just be worth the little splurge! Plus, their item descriptions are too funny. Here are some of my faves: Teacupcakes – Silicone cupcake molds you can use again ...

Baby naming laws – or, why you can’t name your son Superman in Sweden

2 COMMENTS

I heard about this article on the radio and I couldn’t wait to read about it for myself: 8 Countries with Fascinating Baby Naming Laws. Since I have a bit of an obsession with names, I find it really interesting that other countries have laws governing what parents can name their children! Here’s some highlights: • Parents in Denmark are given a list of 7,000 pre-approved names to choose from, ...

Custom name cupcake toppers

3 COMMENTS

It’s the weekend of the cupcake toppers, peeps! This is not a drill! I’ve never had a larger stack of toppers to make, and it’s a cute overload alert! These are in stacks of six or eight. That’s a whole lot of cupcake toppers – and two bonus stacks of baby shower favor tags, for those of you with an eagle eye. : ) What’s extra-adorable is the little “B” in ...

Appreciation photos

1 COMMENT

I’m so excited, because I just found a little hidden treasure trove of photos from my customers on Etsy! Under the feedback area, you can leave “appreciation photos,” but this is one of the things that I’m not good at keeping up with (I’m also not good at remembering to check for facebook messages or watering my plants). So I happened to take a peek today and was thrilled to ...

Welcome!

NO COMMENTS

Hooray! It’s the Chickabug blog! I’ve been wanting to set up a blog for awhile, and it’s one of those “where do I start and do I even have the time?“ sort of things, as I’m sure you can imagine. I’ve had moments where I thought “if I had a blog, I’d totally post about this,” but until now it seemed too overwhelming to go ahead and set everything up (stylesheets! ...
