MPS029 – Totally Awesome 80’s Party

Totally Awesome 80's Party |

Who doesn’t love a good 80’s party!   I’m mean, the 80’s were like so totally awesome, ya know?! The music, the hair, the clothes, the shoulder pads, the movies, the horrendous home decor of sticks in a vase, black lacquer with pastels, and Nagel prints (wow, I just described my bedroom from 1986), and the ever present danger of nuclear war … good times.


MPS028 – Easter Eggs and Bunny Ears

Easter Eggs and Bunny Ears |

Easter is almost here and that means it’s time to decorate those Easter eggs and get ready for the Easter bunny! I even made my own bunny ears this year to get into the spirit.  The ears are kind of adorable, so sometimes I wear them just for fun.  Anyway, today I have some egg decorating ideas to share, how to make pastel deviled eggs, egg shaped Trix marshmallow treats, and how to make your own bunny ears!

MPS027 – Simple St. Patrick’s Day Ideas

Simple St. Patrick's Day Ideas |

St. Patrick’s Day doesn’t have to be all about leprechauns and green beer.  I’m all about a good party, but getting vomited on by a stranger on the street at 3:00 in the afternoon is not my idea of a good time.

Instead, I decided to do a traditional St. Patrick’s Day dinner at home with a few green and gold touches and a shamrock or two.

I love how quick, easy, and cute this craft is! It’s the perfect size for a small item or cash gift and you can make it in any pattern you like!


MPS026 – Pinterest Craft Day: 5 Paint Chip Crafts

Posted by: JP on Feb 15, 2016

Pinterest Craft Day |

Pinterest is full of crafty ideas that utilize the paint chips that you pick up at the home improvement store.  So today I decided to put some of those crafts to the test and see if my versions turned out similar to the ones on Pinterest!  My goal was to make my finished products look like the images I found on Pinterest while spending the least amount of money possible. Today’s projects include a mini square gift box with lid, favor gift holders, a mobile, owl wall art, and a flower canvas.

MPS025 – Anti-Valentine’s Day Party

Anti-Valentine's Day Party |


Not everyone is into the lovey-dovey, ooey-gooey celebration of Valentine’s Day.  You may be single or perhaps in a couple but just don’t like the over the top mush that is Valentine’s Day.  Let’s face it, the restaurants are overcrowded and have limited menus, flowers are crazy expensive, and if you’re single you don’t want to be surrounded by couples making googly eyes at each other all night.  So my solution? Throw an ANTI-Valentine’s Day Party! It doesn’t mean you don’t love love (you can have a date with your special someone anytime), but on Valentine’s Day you can have a lot of fun with ALL your friends, single or not, with an Anti-Valentine’s theme!

MPS024 – Old Hollywood Glamour Party / Oscar Party

Old Hollywood Glamour Party | My Painting Shirt

This is such a fun theme for a party! I love the glam of old Hollywood…the colors, sparkle, the dresses, the hair and makeup, the fabrics, textures, lights, music and so much attitude!  You have so much material to work with when planning a Hollywood Glam party! If you’re doing a full out Oscar party, then you can add a Hollywood sign, Oscar statues, sidewalk stars, film reels, etc. to the decor.  If you’re going a less literal route for a Hollywood feel (perhaps a New Year’s Eve party or a Birthday party), you can use ostrich feathers, crystals, fabric draping, and lighting to make you feel like you’ve stepped back in time.
