Paw Patrol Recycling Birthday Party Ideas

As I mentioned in my previous post, January was very busy organizing both of our boys' birthday parties! (See the Minecraft Birthday Party)

Our youngest recently turned 4 and is really obsessed with recycling/garbage trucks and wanted that to be the theme of his birthday this year! He also loves Paw Patrol, so we merged the two and had a Paw Patrol Recycling Birthday Party! Rocky from Paw Patrol has a recycling truck and it fit in perfectly with our theme!

We're just coming out of the busiest time of year for us. December was busy creating product for my new Ellabella Designs Shop, celebrating birthdays and Christmas, then New Year's! Once January hit, it was full on organizing for our two boys' birthday parties! It certainly is a crazy time of year!

I thought I'd share the boys' birthday parties with you if you need some inspiration for birthday parties for your kids! (See the Paw Patrol Recycling Birthday Party)

FREE CHRISTMAS WALL ART DECOR PRINTABLES

I can't believe it's mid-December already! I have been very busy over the last little while working on designing Christmas printables and opening the Ellabella Designs Shop!

This year I have made some really adorable Christmas/Winter Printables with whimsical penguins & snowmen as well as dainty deer! The popular red vintage truck has also made an appearance again this year in the shop. They would make wonderful Christmas gifts, just set the printables in a frame or even print them on canvas.





BIG ANNOUNCEMENT! GRAND OPENING ELLABELLA DESIGNS SHOP & NAME CHANGE!

I am so excited to finally announce that I have opened the Ellabella Designs Shop on Etsy!

Ellabella Designs Etsy Shop

It has been my dream to open up Ellabella Designs again (you may remember when I had my scrapbooking studio way back in 2006-2010), but this time as a digital design studio where I love to create an abundance of digital art decor and printables for your home and life!

15 Gift Ideas for 13-year-old Teen Girls

It's always difficult to come up with gift ideas for my daughter, and this year is no different! I came up with 15 gift ideas for my 13-year-old teen girl, and I thought I'd share in case you are having difficulties as well!

She's certainly not into toys and isn't that much into the digital craze, though she has had an iPod for a number of years now. She is still into art in a big way, which I love! She goes through paint and canvases like you wouldn't believe!

What is on your teen's wishlist this year? I'd love to hear! Comment below!
