Last year, I was invited to become a monthly contributor to OC Family Magazine-  Which was daunting because I had yet to write for a Magazine.  But have been eternally grateful for the opportunity ... it's been super fun coming up with unique stories for them!  Please check them out for some great ideas!

For JULY I created a gorgeous centerpiece...a berry berry sweet one!  Find out how you and your little ones can  make one!

MARCH was dedicated to a fun day in Laguna Beach without spending a small fortune!  Get dialed into an affordable Laguna day with your kids!

APRIL was the perfect month to dedicate to (easy) Birthday parties!  My boys had a blast...I was relaxed and we all loved LASER TAG!  At what my boys call EFF!

For the FEBRUARY issue I created a whimsical tea-time using natural ingredients.  It was a lot of fun!  It's always time for tea...especially when you can add your own creative spin on it!  Read the Article!

JANUARY is "Baby Month" At OC Family Magazine...so I came up with "The Gifting Tree"  A superb idea for baby showers... so fun!  Create one for your own baby shower!

For the DECEMBER issue I created tasty pretzel place cards for a fun dinner table setting idea!  Personalize your own table this Holiday season!  Heres HOW!

The NOVEMBER issue was particularly creative and fun...a fall- Thanksgiving centerpiece that actually pays for itself!  Easy and Fun...MAKE ONE!

JULY 2010 I showed you how to grow a mini-chef's garden using containers.  Get the directions!
