Looking Glass Tutus | LookingGlassTutus.com

I am so excited to tell you about my new project: Looking Glass Tutus!

I have been making a lot of tutu dresses lately for friends, family, birthday parties, gifts, and have decided to turn it into my primary business! I love making them and I’ve received such a positive response from the kids (and parents, grandparents, friends, and people I don’t even know!) that I’ve decided to open an online store to sell the tutu dresses, kid tutus, and adult tutus. Please check it out online at lookingglasstutus.com, the basics are up now, but the official store will open around August 15th.

Avengers Birthday Party!

I have been wanting to doing a superhero party for a while and with the new Avengers movie out, it was the perfect time! This party was so much fun, I love the bright colors, the kids (and adults) loved the games, masks, and capes, and I loved how the cake turned out! In this podcast I’ll cover how-to’s for the masks, capes, cake, comic popcorn cones, Hulk smash wall, Hawkeye bad guy target shoot, and lots of food and decorating ideas.
